Lily made this abacus. Isn’t it cool?

I love seeing what she carries home from school at the end of the day. She’s painted with her feet and elbows … and with her eyes closed. We have sculpture, musical instruments, a paperweight and a bird feeder that she’s created. My favorite is the “telescope” that she made out of an empty toilet paper roll.

Right now, everything is stacking up on the shelves in the playroom. And there’s a rotating gallery on the door in our kitchen. But I’m thinking about trying this idea from Pinterest. Or maybe this one.

What sorts of treasures do your kids bring home from school? How do you display them?

And speaking of art, our friend (and Love to Zaria sponsor) Laura Loving is just about to kick off a new campaign that makes me smile: it’s called Laura Loving Happy. I adore the bright, cheerful prints, clever greeting cards and that funky Buddha tote. They’re raising funds right now for the November launch. If you want in on the action, check out this site. And keep an eye out for my interview with Laura next month!

It started innocently enough, her first experience finger-painting.

Sweet little swirls on paper. Red, yellow, green, blue.

And then?

KA-BOOM!
