Illustrated recipes to try with your kids this summer.

Ah, summer vacations. Fun times: kids around the house and parents desperate for ideas on how to entertain them!

But worry not, we’ll be here all summer to share fun ideas for things to do so your kids won’t get bored, you won’t lose your mind, and will you both have a good time.

In case you missed it, we’ve shared some wonderful classic rare books online you and your kids could read together, or alternatively you could write and illustrate a book, go see some fun art or, well, go to all the way to Denmark to explore the most fantastic playgrounds out there.
