Knitting on the Go

Why not pass the time flying, driving, riding to your next destination by knitting (or, learning to knit!)?

For the youngest of aspiring handy-workers, the French Knitting Flower ($7.95) from International Playthings is a great way to get a feel for yarn and needle and stitches to make a creation of on
e's own.

For the bit older kids, (or an adult) the complete Knit-It kit is equipped to help you make your own (adorable pic!) Monkey. Finished size measures 16" x 4" when 'standing tall'. Kit contains instructions, stuffing, yarn, scarf yarn in 6 colors, needles, darning needle and other adornments. Detailed instructions explain knitting as well as what to do with the box that it comes in! Keep little or big hands busy for miles and miles and hours and hours! And, as a bonus, there is a new traveling companion when project is completed.

This info is not from KidsTravelHappy.com but as a knitter as well, I'd like to share this
great link for the Moms (or Dads). From Interweave Press "6 tips and tricks for knitting on-the-go", so once you get your little one(s) going with one of the projects above, you can enjoy your own!

Garden Time !?

Despite the fact that it's snowing here today (ARGH!!), the day before EASTER, we are thinking garden, putting (organic) manure on our plot and we have thoughts of GREEN grass, not just that in the Easter Baskets!

To gear up for planting (OUTSIDE!), we have stocked up on the necessary gardening tools, sized just for kids and priced economically just for our customers!

(hoe, leaf race, garden rake, garden spade)

Hand tools measure approx 8" in length; Other 'tools' are approx 27.5" in height.

ALL have wooden handles and metal ends.

Get the whole WORLD in your hands

An inflatable globe! Travel-sized and can be blown up for educational fun (and, if that doesn't work, it'll be ready for the pool or the beach!).

This packs small, and can be taken anywhere. Teach a child about the world and have it 'in your hands' easily!

Tired of the kids tossing it around?? Can be hung from a ceiling as decoration (out of reach :-)
