Valentines Love Heart Bunting with Potato Printing
There is lots of love in the air, with Valentine's Day here, so I wanted to create a craft with simple items we had on hand. Naturally, a classic potato print project came to mind. After all aren't potato prints a right of passage? This craft entertained my nearly two year old and almost five ...

My Funny Valentines -- Cute last-minute Valentine card idea!
These are the easiest (and super last-minute friendly) Valentine cards. Very handmade, perhaps even a bit homespun, which I think adds a bit of character... quite endearing! In addition they are funny and fast to make! You can use collage materials and a bit of clever wording, and presto! We used pieces of wrapping paper ...

Easy craft project: Valentine Treasure Boxes
Hello!! The end of last year proved absolutely crazy between work, new hires, a studio move, sick kids, and the usual holiday madness! As I looked back on 2016 however, I realized that most of my favorite memories revolved around eating (ha) or making stuff with the kids. So, as we kick off 2017 -- yes, ...

Heartcatcher DIY
As soon as the new year has come and gone, I start to get really excited for Valentine’s Day. It’s funny: I appreciate V-Day much more now that I’m married with four kids than I ever did when it was all about romance. Hot dates and jewelry be damned, I’ll take a good excuse to ...

Valentines craft -- love birds
Happy Valentines Day! Our kids woke us up with the sweetest handmade Valentines cards this morning... But I had nothing prepared! So I quickly made these 'lovebirds', by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting it in a heart shape. A piece of masking tape keeps it closed and forms the beak. Inside ...

Easy Valentine's Day cards
I sat down with the kids last week and we made the easiest Valentine's Day cards. (Things have to be easy these days because I'm either carrying around a baby in the sling or feeding her with one hand and trying to multitask with the other!) Anyway, I thought I would share them in case ...

Easy and Sweet Valentines Decoration
If you have a sewing machine, this Valentines decoration is easily made, and my kids really liked the project! Just potato-stamp hearts on paper; I used plain brown craft paper but you can use any sort really, even newspaper.  No need to be perfect here, my 2-year-old had quite some production going.  (If you stop ...

The blogosphere is full of Valentine's day craft projects... they are really everywhere! This one I found on How about orange... sent me back in time, more than 20 years!

Heart cards
Besides a few anonymous cards that were sent between secret lovers (mostly between smitten teenagers, to be specific), we don't have an actual Valentines tradition here in the Netherlands. The last 15 years however, it seems that Valentine's Day has become a holiday celebrating love in general instead of the more mysterious anonymous love it was ...

Make your own Valentine cards!
They won't be as sharp as the cards you buy in the shop, but I'm sure they are made with way more love! Take a thick piece of paper, about 15x21 cm or 6"x8" (if you're going to send it, it's handy to check if it fits an envelope beforehand, but they are also cute ...

Today’s new post from Lara “Seek is the one and only app that our (young) children use. It started in lockdown over the Spring, as things sprung to life, and our children would ask us ‘what’s that?’ So my husband found the answer, which was for all of us to learn more from the world of amazing digital technology by using a free app (and find out more about the amazing world!). We think it is so outstanding actually and have told so many friends and family members to use it too, because it teaches them about the world and nature! I should quickly add that this is not a sponsored post! It is just a great tip I wanted to share.” And we love this thought... “You don’t have to travel far to find weird and beautiful wildlife. Your garden, local park, street tree, window box or the verge alongside a local footpath are rich ecosystems filled with species… you’ll be able to identify any living thing in your patch – plants, flowers, insects, fungi, birds and animals. It’s like having a naturalist in your pocket! When you ID a species you’ll be able to find out all about it, and see how common or rare it is for your area and the time of year.” More about the app in our bio link. But tell us, are you using any interesting educational apps for nature or science? ps And stay tuned for more about her holiday on a lighthouse island in @laraoflondon ‘s post next week! #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #babyccinotravels #seek

Autumn Equinox — a note from Esther... “I was talking to Lara earlier today, and she was reminding me of the start of Autumn happening today. Autumn! Today, the bright daylight hours and the dark nightly hours are of equal length. From now on, the days will get shorter, the nights will get longer… until the longest night, Winter Solstice (taking place on December 21st) will mark the beginning of the Winter season. Today is Autumn Equinox: the night and the day are in perfect balance. It marks the moment of the sun entering Libra (my star sign!), bringing harmony and stability, and which is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. All good things, and definitely things we need in these uncertain, difficult and turbulent times. Autumn is when the air starts to feel crisper and smell muddier, when the colours of nature are intensifying before they change colour, when the light is low and magical, when the days get wetter and the weather gets windier. It is the time to harvest apples and nuts and pumpkins, to make pies and soups and stews and to cosy up the house with rugs, pillows and blankets. Fall is so cosy! To celebrate this First Day of Autumn, I thought it would be nice to make a list of all the little things, family traditions and crafts we love doing in fall. Most we have posted about before, but there are some new ideas and things I want to try as well. Going through old posts and getting this list together has been so inspiring — yes, we are entering the darker and colder months, but there is so much to do and make, and many of these activities are super simple and made with whatever nature supplies us with. Fall truly is fabulous!” xx Esther Enjoy @estherbabyccino fifteen favourite fall activities to get inspired, link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #autumnequinox @maudfontein 🧡

Today’s post... five top tips to help make moving abroad eas(ier). Our Contributor @sydney.piercey knows first hand after moving four from London to France last week. “Do be brave, do be kind to yourself with your emotions, (beforehand and when you arrive) and do enjoy! I am a firm believer of enriching your life by taking risks and embracing change. I can also personally vouch for the magic that awaits from moving abroad.” More in the bio... #babyccinotravels #moversandshakers #babyccinotips

Vegetable bolognese anyone? This ragu is seriously, seriously delicious, packed full of vegetables and extremely straightforward to make – a chuck it all into the pot and pop it in the oven recipes! It’s also great for using up leftover/sad vegetables in your fridge. See Lyndsay’s recipe on the bio link. @ieatmypeas #babyccinoeats #babyccinokids

Make your own gnome friends! We think these would be a fun after-school activity on a Friday afternoon to celebrate completing another week of school. (Is it just us or does every week feel even longer than it ever has before?) Or even a weekend craft too. See these step-by-step photos and share your finished gnomes with us. We’d love to share in our stories! Link in bio to @estherbabyccino ‘s idea from a birthday many moons ago. #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts

Often seafood suppers seem complicated, and a bit pricey. But @laraoflondon’s family have perfected a Crab Linguine pasta dish this summer that we had to share with you. It is economical, easy to make, takes less than 15 minutes, and feeds the whole family a healthy dinner or a big family Sunday lunch. Link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinoreads
