I  LOVE the creative children’s community on Instagram, finding people both friendly and inspiring!

This week, along with @mielaerkerasmussen (who has many amazing activities!), I had the privilege of guest hosting @kidscrafts101. This initiative, moderated by  http://www.redtedart.com/@incredibusy, is a great way to connect and share many forms of creativity. The only thing that was difficult about this week was selecting the featured projects- there are just so many wonderful ideas!
