(Nov. 21, 2016) This morning, after hearing that the garbage bag left outside by papa last night got torn open, he right away tried to figure out which animal did it.
I suggested it might be a raccoon but he guessed either a fox or a mouse (not sure why [...]
(Aug. 16, 2014) Nico’s birthday was coming up and we always do a birthday shirt for him, normally it’s an iron on image and a surprise for him the morning of his party/birthday. This year I wanted to do something different, we have tons of freezer paper we got in the US [...]
(June 29, 2015) Nico saw ads on TV about Canada Day and asked about it. After a brief explanation he asked if we were doing something for it? Well we normally don’t, but he wanted to do something. He suggested a party for our homeschool coop, but I reminded him [...]

(May 6, 2014) Day 4 of Craftulate‘s 5-day series titled “Play, Craft and Learn with Dinosaurs” leads us into the world of crafts, but our result was anything but premeditated. Today my mother finished a duct tape roll but before throwing out the cardboard ring she asked if I needed it [...]
(March 27, 2014) A couple of days ago, TinkerLab issued a new creative challenge and we decided to participate. This one is anything egg-related. So I wracked my brain for a few days, but couldn’t figure out anything, so I asked Nico what kind of eggs he would like [...]
