I wish you more is a beautiful books of a parent's wishes for a child.
But kids can also have wishes for their parents (and not just the "I want to eat candy for breakfast, and stay up late" kind of wishes.
I Wish You More inspired us to think about wishes for our mums.
Making wishes leads one's thoughts to dandelion seeds.
And that lead us to creating wishes for our mamas.
Stars are touched with mystery and magic.
They are tiny and beautiful, and at the same time immense and unfathomable.
We use them for determining direction, have made up stories about them, and have beliefs about their position determining the course of our lives.
And simple enough to put in a bin and explore with our senses.

Oliver Jeffers is one of our favourite authors.
He captures the limitless imagination of childhood, while gently pushing his grown up reading audience towards life truths. Truths that kids just seem to "get"; maybe adults have forgotten them ...
Sometimes simple is best.
Easy to make angels - capture the simple magic of the Christmas season.
Honestly, a Christmas craft does not get much easier than this. Which is a good thing, since I volunteered the k-kids to make enough angels to decorate a Christmas tree located in our school foyer that invites families to donate a gift for a child who won't have much under the tree. Children make angels to encourage others to be Christmas angels for children.
