Fun Kids Art Activities for Spring Break

At this point in the season, we are dreaming of the end of winter and love to start planning spring break ideas just to get ourselves warm. Cameron has tried on every bathing suit she owns. Twice.

Decorate And Organize Your Journal for A New Year

This year I’m using the Flipside Double Sided Notebook as my planner. It’s awesome because one half of the notebook has blank pages and then you can flip it over it has lined paper too. So handy for lists or doodling! And you can tell which side you are on by the cover color.

Using Color-Pop and Pocket Pal notebooks as creative journals have been such a great way for my daughter to focus her energy and work through her creative process. I could see any kiddo using them for whatever creative projects they’ve got in the works: LEGO designs, story writing, nature sketching. Journals are an excellent tool for kids’ imaginations!
