Easter table setting..





Sometimes family dinners are much more easy when children can do something at the table.
Jane created some placemats to draw on, for all of us...one is the classic dot game and the other is a frame to fill with beautiful drawings.
You can easily use them for any birthday, holiday or other party!

Ed Emberly drawing books NEW STOCK!!

Everybody can draw with these great books from the American hero Ed Emberly.
He helps children (and parents ;-) to draw anything, step by step,
using basic forms that slowly turn into animals, people, buildings, and many more...
We really love these books and are glad we received new stock from America!



Also great artwork with the book picture pie, using circles, 
and divide them in pieces
to form them into animals,flowers or just art..


need i say more.., the fingerprint book !

the museum of "NIJNTJE"

today we went to visit the ' nijntje' museum, which of course is really designed for our children...
but to be honest, i can't really tell who was more exited.
the design of the museum and the designs of Dick Bruna are so inspiring,
that i would suggest to go there also without children!!


of course we are very lucky to live in the city of nijntje...Utrecht!
it only takes us 10 minutes by bike to get there...
but our the city is a great place to visit, with lots of sightseeing, old canals, festivals, 
museums and good restaurants swell, so you are welcome to join us


when we came home, also our little girl was inspired,
she red the books and draw this great cat the 'Bruna" way

party ideas

every spring we have our kids birthdays to celebrate...
so i'm already looking around for inspiration on party ideas.
if you have pictures yourself, feel free to send them to us!



soft colors, with a little neon touch!!
really like the confetti balloons and the hand made invitations..


how great are these number pinnatas 
and the straws they used for the homemade ice creams 


colorful and also good for boys...
love the hand stamped cups, and the rainbow cake!


or lots of yellow, fresh and summer like 
would be nice to have the recipes of these birthday pies
