gift guide: kids coloring books

Another gift idea we love to gift the kids (and their cousins and friends) is a beautiful coloring book! It’s such a great activity to do while they’re out of school and there are so many beautiful options!coloring-bookParis, of course. //Drawings from some of our favorite bands! // We love the idea of showing our kids the world but letting them decide how it should look. London, too! //  NYC like a real New Yorker // Patrick Hruby art book – with guides to show just how colorful and intricate it can be, or of course color in your own style. Eye Spy style treasure hunt you can color! // Alexander Girard‘s black and white line drawings – made colorful by you! // Doodlers Anonymous is filled with 90 drawings from contemporary artists from around the globe, their doodlers make our masterpieces. We love this one! // Educate your kids about the best time (in our opinion) for art and decor – the Midcentury! // One more Paris.

Oh man it is already so frigidly cold here in Utah (we will now commence ignoring the fact that Jenna is in sunny Southern California until our temps reach at least 60 again.) But we are still trying to get our kids out in the fresh air everyday. Every time we do this we can’t help but replay that scene in a Christmas Story – poor Randy, but also poor Randy’s mom! Veyo Kids MittyzGetting them suited up for cold weather is exhausting and even more so when they get cold after only a handful of minutes. SO! Any cold weather clothes and accessories that help them enjoy themselves longer – we are all over! Veyo Kids MittyzNot only are these Mittyz by Veyo Kids the most darling things, but you don’t have to worry about straps, finger holes, velcro. You just slip it on, cinch it tight and let your kids loose. Veyo Kids MittyzAnd how cute are these designs? Veyo Kids MittyzFind them all here!
