I've found that the second time around as a parent, I've been way lazier about initiating creative projects. And sometimes I feel pretty bad about it because Violet clearly loves creative projects, especially sensory-related ones. So I'm thrilled about Asia Citro's 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids. Replete with doable projects, simple instructions, and great photos, this book is inspiring me to try a new activity with Vi each week.
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you're having a great week! I'm floating on a happy cloud after yesterday's Girls on the Run practice 5K -- so proud of the girls in this program!

We aren't ones to diss the classics, and we adore children's books that are timeless, like the works of Dr. Suess, Sandra Boynton and Eric Carle. But, if you are looking to try something new at bedtime, we've discovered some amazing new reads that don't fit the typical picture book mold.
Given that this fall I've basically only been able to focus on what's happening the week most immediately ahead of me, it was crazy to pick my head up and realize next week is Thanksgiving! For those of you in a similar last-minute boat, I'm here to help! Last year's 10 free Thanksgiving printables for kids were such a hit that I recommend you check those out, and also this new roundup, which includes decor and game options. Enjoy!
