By accident this week, I’ve discovered two great activities for kids, based on our printable books.
This is so easy, and so much fun, and personally I love fridge magnets. They’re like a game, a learning tool, a pin board all in one.

After arriving back from holiday, Opa, who joined us, sent me some great books about the kids adventures, combining some of the pictures he’d taken with creative text.
It was so great for me to have both a family memory, [...]
