Well it looks like we’ve outgrown ourselves here. There are a lot of changes under way for Kids Stuff World, please be patient with us over the next few days as we transition from our WordPress blog and settle in to our new home over at www.kidsstuffworld.com. Expect a lot of tweaking to happen for at least a week or so, but we promise we’ll all be pleased with the results.
Lots of big things are headed your way, KSW exclusive discounts, some awesome giveaways, and as always great ideas for things to do with your kids and ways to help the environment.
One more thing, if you were subscribed to the Kids Stuff World RSS or email feed, you will have to re-subscribe on the new site. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Well, I know I could – I’ve been terribly sick for almost three weeks now and I can think of nothing that would make me feel better than what I’m about to share with you. Camille must have known what I was feeling when she designed her Jelly Filled quilt – who wouldn’t feel instantly better wrapped up in this bright and cheerful piece?
If you’ve never been to Simplify by Camille, this mother of two’s gorgeous blog then you’re in for a real treat. Her creativity and stunning photography skills always leave me wanting more.
Today, Camille has decided to give me a chance at MORE – well, actually she’s giving everyone a chance.
To win one of her gorgeous quilts that is, and oh what a wonderful Christmas gift to me this would be. Part of my motives for passing this one along are selfish (I’d love the extra three entries to win) but another, bigger part of me wants to tell everyone I meet about Camille and her fantastic quilts. So first, head on over to ThimbleBlossoms – her Etsy store where she sells her one of a kind quilt patterns and select your favorite. Next, click here and enter yourself in the contest (you’ll need to know your favorite pattern in order to do so). Hurry, this giveaway ends on Nov 24th.
This eco-friendly birch wood table and chair set from EcoTots has really caught my eye, enough so that I am designing a Kids Stuff World Playroom around it. It’s built to last and just the right height to encourage imaginative play and all sorts of fun activities. The best part is, from now till Nov. 30 the whole set is on sale for $249.99
Super Crafty Suzanne originally shared this idea for a cheap, easy, and fun project for kids with Good Morning Connecticut, but I’m even more excited about her posting the idea on her site, see the post here. Who would have a guessed an old wrapping paper tube, some crafts you have on hand and a few beans could turn into something so wonderful. I truly cannot wait to share this project with my children. They’ve never met a rain stick they didn’t like.
At work I often use expandable mailing tubes that would also be perfect for this project. These tubes have plastic or metal caps on each end that would make sealing the ends a neater and more permanent solution.
If you make your own version of a rain stick, we’d love to see pictures or hear your story. Post them here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Don’t forget to check out our other Fun Things To Do With Your Kids ideas – let us know how you like the content so far and what types of activities you’d like to see more of.
