This is so creative (and I'm sure kids will gobble it up)--a sandcastle quesadilla from Meet the Dubiens.
I was browsing through old family photos and trying to find a photo of me with a sandcastle. I couldn't find one, but here's me climbing my dad at Ink's Lake State Park. You can't see it, but we're right by the shore. I loved the water, and I think that's where I learned to swim. Check out his 70s finery and my strawberry bikini. We were stylin', I tell you.
Here's Violet at about the same age.
She's dancing with her former nemesis. I'm glad they made up.
More than anything, I just want to capture that feeling of being a child on a beach creating an imaginary world. It's so fun to be a kid and think that anything is possible. Find that however you can----write a poem, build a mini sandcastle in a bowl with garden sand, take a drive out to the seashore, or have a snowcone and relive childhood summer memories.
Do you guys like Pinterest? It's an online way to share images. It's like a visual scrapbook.
For example: If I am planning a party for Violet that is circus-themed, I can make a Pinterest board called 'Circus Party'. Then, I can put images from all over the web on that board so I can look at them all at once. I could have images of food, decorations, balloons, invitations---whatever.
The page on Pinterest might look a little like this:
You could click on any individual image to see it larger and find out where it came from originally.
For me, it works because it's a lot easier to see everything all at once. I don't know about you, but I bookmark a LOT of images, and my bookmark list gets WAY too long. This way, it's all neatly organized by subject.
