And Now… News from the Internet
So I have this vision of putting together a newsreel. You know, the kind they used to show before movies back in the olden days of yore. Nasally voice, super fast talk, flickering footage showing people standing stiffly with smiles plastered on their faces, waiting for a light bulb to pop. Of course all this could be heavily influenced by the King’s Speech. Fantastic movie! Seriously, hire a sitter and make it a date night.
Today I wanted to bring you some news from our news desk. I’ve scoured the globe to bring you the fun, the educational and the all-about-me links (purely for vanity’s sake I assure you) for the weekend ahead. And now, the news *cue ticker tape sound*
from Brothers Trimm
Shepard Fairey’s elephant says OBEY!
from Adventures of Skinny Mini Kiki
Gong Hey Fat Choy It’s the year of the Rabbit!

Back to basics: We all need more recess in our lives. Grown ups, that includes you too.
This one is my favorite: The Four Secrets of Playtime that Foster Creative Kids.
Hint: it ain’t the passive toys that make ‘em creative. It’s the open-ended kid-driven ones. And why yes, I did just link to our toy company.
Before I go, here’s where you’ll find me hanging out these days…
Well, now this is just plain awesome! Especially because you were totally going to buy something anyway.
And that’s your edutainment for the weekend ahead. Until next week, keep it playful!*
