      Cool idea! I'd get kids to write about it after too. "Expand an image" start off a child's drawing with a small magazine or photo image... and let them take off! Turn the image into a writing prompt! I see Matthew doing an action sports photo, Claire finding JB singing to her and Ella using a concert pic of one of her favs.

      Love this idea! I would even do it with a few different cut out pieces. It's kind of like playing the game, Squiggles from Randomline. Glue a piece from magazine & let kids expand an image with their own details.

    A ready-made plate rack can be easily transformed into a child's bookshelf, displaying both toys and children's books. You can also make your own shelves; just have all the wood cut to size at a lumberyard.

    card holder for little hands. Genius!

    30 things my kids should know about me - WOW, thinking about how this could have helped me if my own mother had done something like this. This will take some time, but it's perfect to kick off for/by Mother's Day.
