4 Craft Projects for Kids

Summer vacation is here and kids will have plenty of time to run, play and investigate their outdoor. But also there will be quiet times, perfect to develop a craft project.

Children are more likely to get involved in projects when there are fun, challenging, and fascinating play materials available.

Here are some ideas. Hope you enjoy with them!

The Art of Looking

image

Magharibi (At sunset) is a project about the art of looking.

It’s a book without words illustrated by Guridi. A publication with a poignant beauty that will compel you to invent stories.

These are some images of the preview of the book. A real treat for the eyes and senses.

The editorial Porkepik  has launched a Verkami campaign to finance the production of this book. Let us make it possible!

Nanpuzzle

image

Do you remember El nan casteller? It’s a really nice wooden toy based on the Catalan tradition of Castells (human towers). Now Apanona (Laia Arriols), Marc Sardà and El Nan Casteller have joined forces on a new project for the youngest: the Nanpuzzle. And I’m crazy about it! 

Nanpuzzle is a giant puzzle ahead and a colorable behind. Apanona has drawn a pretty scene with Barcelona skyline and some Castellers playing (with Nan XL) and taking selfies.

image

Turn the puzzle over, colour it and learn how to dress Castellers in English.

image

 And also have fun with a real Nan (included in the box).

image

Nanpuzzle is consisting of 24 reversible jumbo pieces and is recommended for ages 3 and above. The large pieces are easy to handle for children.

Tradition and modernity, innovation and responsible production can go hand in hand. Well done!

Aloïs and Vadim’s room

Today I want to show you Aloïs and Vaim’s room. Her mother, Aude, is the blogger behind Toupie et ses haricots magiques and a lover of the vintage.

The kids room combines contemporary elements with others found in flea markets, such as the child desk, the highchair or the great collection of Fisher Priece figures.

Some animal masks from Chocolate show, a doll from Le train fantôme or a Superhero mirror from April Eleven bring a fun twist to this shared room.

If you want to know more details about this room, check out Babayaga magazine.

He taken the pictures as part of a book called Family that he co-wrote with anthropologist Margaret Mead back in 1965.

Here some of them. Enjoy!

A Day in L.A. - Bobo Choses AW14/15 Collection

image

I’ve seen the first photos of Bobo Choses AW14/15 collection via Zirimola eco shop blog

The collection is called A Day in L.A. and you’ll find references to Venice Beach, Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood or Echo Park lake in form of stars, peanuts, birds or swans… and a lot of cool clothes!

A great collection inspired by Los Angeles city and the imaginary of the 50’s. With Bobo’s characteristic prints playing the starring role, the collection represents the magic, the boldness and the fun of spending a day in L.A.

Colour, creativity and fun garments. Bobo Choses in its purest state!

Bobo Choses - AW14/15 Collection

A Day in L.A.

In the morning at Echo Park,
vain palm trees look at themselves 
in the mirroring waters, while swans 
praise them for their hairstyles.

At noon on Sunset Boulevard,
cartoons take a break from the screens
and birds that go for a walk 
take off their hats to greet each other.

What I saw is what I say
it’s just a day in L.A.

In the evening, at the movie theatre,
a giant peanut shushes a couple of fur coats
that won’t let him listen to the film’s dialogues
because they don´t stop chatting.

At night, over the skies of Venice Beach,
stars that weren’t featured in the movies
show off their best splendour
hoping to pass the casting.

What I saw is what I say
it’s just a day in L.A.

Toronto: A Cork Stool for Playing

image

A few time ago, I introduced you TORONTO, a modular and adjustable stool designed specially for kids. I’m very pleased that this innovative and cool children’s stool has been selected by DELTA AWARDS 2014, 37th International edition of the best product design, FADexpo.

TORONTO is a piece of furniture and a toy at the same time, made of cork and foam, both 100% recyclable. With the ability to customize the stackable discs to meet their height, children can strengthen fundamental skills such as movement, coordination and manipulation. 

TORONTO is suitable for indoor playground spaces such as libraries, kindergartens, etc. and also for domestic play areas.

TORONTO stool is the brainchild of In-Tenta and Daniela Seminara, and it’s produced by MADE DESIGN.

A Playhouse in Sweden

When Julias Vita Drömmar and her husband bought a little farm it was in a bad condition, but they have completely renovated it. 

On the farm they have a root cellar dating from the 1600s that they have reconverted into a beautiful playhouse - summer house for their children.

A good coat of white paint (and light green for some pieces), a few trips to antique markets and some elements of IKEA have completely changed the look of the room.

There are so many details I love! The vintage prints, the doll crib, the textile teapot, the ancient mirror… It’s simply perfection.

If you like this style of decoration, you’ll absolutely love Julias’ shop. Check it out!
