What hope you had a nice Earth Day yesterday! One of the most important charges we feel as parents is to instill a sense of wonder, curiosity, and respect for nature. Children are so observant innately, so this concept is not hard to teach, if anything  it’s a great reminder for ourselves! To help them point out the beautiful, interesting, and even at times “yucky!” things in their surroundings, we sent them off with Twig Creative’s darling wood cameras. Virtually indestructible, they felt pretty cool getting to tote around their own camera. We just followed a few steps behind so we could capture what caught their eye.

Seeing things that should not be in nature helped spark an easy conversation about littering, and keeping the Earth clean.

We love Lola’s awesome Geggamoja beanie and faux moto jacket by Little Giraffe.

Thanks to Twig for helping us inspire the inner photographer in our little ones, and for Little Duck Organics for feeding them after a strenuous tenth of a mile nature walk. They loved the dried fruit packs, and at 3 grams of sugar, we loved them too!

    I love these toy cameras. So cute! These photos are pretty darn adorable too. I have an old lomo that I gave my little 2yr old to photograph and it’s quiet amusing to see what he sees.

    Simple classic toys toddlers are the best toys
    for toys are us kids of all ages. After low drying, the plush toy, which uses a powder-coated screen that is scraped by a knob-controlled stylus, was toys are us
    later picked up for production by the Ohio Art Company, where

    among autistic children is beads.
