Toys all over the world

Every now and then I get an email from some far off place showing kids that are enjoying my toys. I've received emails from almost every country that you can think of. Here's is a class in South Africa that made circus books. Made my day!

Also in the news... my twelve-year-old niece came over and we experimented with making paper fairy lanterns.

The wonderhub made me a lovely classical guitar this summer. Mister Pretty kept me company while I was practicing this morning.



If you could learn one new thing what would it be?

Wishing you a creative week,

Marilyn.

  1. If I could learn one new thing this week... How to insert podcasting and do podcasting on blogger. Hmm... is that one or two new things?

  5. Parkour! But I'm too old and chicken to throw myself around like that. :)

    How nice that you get photos of your toys - I know our little corner of Sydney Australia has been thoroughly enjoying them. I wish now that I'd taken a shot of my mother's Christmas table festooned with your geese..

  6. Parkour for sure! That would be cool!

    I'll have to do a flock of chickens for you for next year!

    Waving from the other side of the world!
