Weekend Activity: Little Drifters

Recently art blog BOOOOOOOM! and the Vancouver Sun teamed up on the Little Drifters project.   While they are no longer taking submissions it’s still a fabulous fun activity for the whole family.   Build a little boat using nothing but natural materials, sail it on some water and enjoy!

Memorial Day Activities

Thank you for all your great suggestions for where we could go on our next inspiration trip. We wouldn’t be surprised if some of your ideas came to life sooner than you think. A bit closer to home, we’re looking forward to summer in San Francisco, even if it’s a bit chilly, you’ll still see us out and about every weekend on our own adventures. To win today’s $100 birthday certificate, please share on our Facebook page what are you and your kids will be up to this Memorial Day weekend.  The randomly selected winner will be announced tomorrow.sand box
