There's more fun to be found on his blog so be sure you look around or you'll miss things like this match game with his cute quirky illustrations,a clever pick up game made of paper clips, marble run made out of an empty cereal box, and a lot more. It's worth the time to scroll through all of his archives, he is one cool dad!

At your next party, decorate your table with watercolored placemats, as seen on 2 Giggle Boxes. Sarah will walk you through step by step through the project.

Your kids can also make their own monogramed stationary using a simple crayon resist method shared at Art Projects for Kids.
