A Little Business + Make a Name Badge

I have a few new things to share today before jumping into our project.

First of all, I’ve received lots of questions about where I get our materials, so I added a tab up in the navigation bar called Supplies that you can click on. As I discover new things or think of other materials that we like to use, I’ll add them to this page. If you have any favorite materials, please feel free to share them. I love to learn about new things.

Second, I’m excited to share that TinkerLab is nominated for the “Best Craft for Kids Blog” at Parents Magazine.

And now, making a name badge…

When I spotted clips like thesein the office supply store I was sure we’d find a use for them. Within a week, my daughter found them, discovered their purpose, and decided that her dad needed a name badge so that his co-workers would know his name. My husband doesn’t normally wear a name badge at work, so clearly this would help! N doesn’t write yet, so she asked me to write her dad’s on a piece of paper. She decorated it, tried it on for size, and then sent him out the door with his new name badge.

This wasn’t a complex project, but it gave my daughter confidence in manifesting her own ideas and connected her to real world solutions. Plus, my husband went to work decorated in polka dots.
