One of the collections I have been creating this summer keeps pulling me back to childhood, toddler-ville and even baby-land. Mostly, it reminds me of the sweet and simple time when one is beginning to play, explore, and learn . . . when a bug is the most amazing toy, ever! . . . when a kitten gives in to the pressure of becoming a ‘baby doll,’ . . . when one begins to understand that those funny shapes, people keep referring to as letters, actually start to make some sense.
Oh, the joys of learning the alphabet song and This Old Man. Just the mention of those childhood songs sends the tunes floating through one’s mind. Once we learn those childhood favorites, we are assured of keeping them in our memories for a lifetime.
The collection, Child’s Play with Kate and Nate, has been created to help keep those childhood traditions alive with projects and ideas to enjoy while the child is young, to preserve those memories when the child grows up, and to treasure as keepsakes for generations to come.
Here is just a piece of the Kate and Nate collection I wanted to share. Other pieces in this collection will follow over the next few days.
Whether you’re young, or just young at heart, something you see here will likely trigger a wonderful memory from your childhood.
Now, I’ve learned my abc’s, tell me what you think of me!
