We Love This
Obviously we love magazines, but magazines full of our kids’ stuff? Even better! Kidsolidate is a neat service that will take all your kid’s art (or whatever you send them) and format it into a nice little magazine keepsake – instead of bins upon bins full of papers and projects. Simply mail in your kid’s creations, wait a few weeks and voila! A magazine shows up in the mail for you to enjoy. What a great way to commemorate your child’s art skills. If you want, they’ll return the original artwork. Learn more at www.kidsolidate.com
Is it therapy dough or moldable kinetic sand? Mad Mattr is both. Sculpt, stretch—even crumble—it and watch the texture change from sandy to silky soft in seconds. It feels kind of like wet sand but without any sticky residue. Stretch your creativity to build a mini masterpiece or simply knead to relax your senses. One of the most innovative properties of this dough is that it won’t dry out. www.thegrommet.com, $30.00
