As a parent of 2 boys in arts-centric schooling, I was recently asked my thoughts on the importance of this type of education. Check out my response:
Did you like the “His Dark Materials” trilogy? If you did, you’ll be as excited as I was to hear that Phillip Pullman is working on a new book (perhaps two?) in the same universe coming out sometime soon!
With all the great artwork that my 2 kids are bringing home lately, I have begun to find ways to capture and catalog their work.
While looking for better ways to do this, I stumbled across this neat iPad app – Foldify.
If you’re looking for quick, easy, cheap and fun ways to create and spend time creating with your kids, Foldify is it. Check it out and see what you can make! I can’t wait to see what the community starts to make around this and quickly download/print these figures with ease. I’ve enjoyed Papercraft and have had various figures up at my desk from time to time – but Foldify makes this even easier!
If you have children you may begin to have conversations around the differences between boys and girls. Not physically but with the toys they like, the colors they prefer, the games they tend to play, the clothes they wear, how they act. It is inevitable as a parent to have these conversations as our children try and find their own space in the world and learn what it means to be part of a larger community outside of their immediate family. But what do you do when you hear sexist remarks creep into your preschooler’s mouth?
