Add some color to your lil one's library with five bright, bold new books, designed to inspire some creativity. Whether she's exploring the glamorous side of New York City with Sophie, learning to accept her sibling like Molly, or helping an onion escape the kitchen knife, these books are sure to inspire a smile.
A tot's touch of color makes all the difference! Children can make their mark on everything from sneakers to Hermes scarves these days. And, J. Crew just launched a Crewcuts shoe shop coloring book. The five artistic designs include wellies, ballet flats, and sneakers. They can be downloaded (for free) and printed for kids to color or brought to life digitally and then either printed or uploaded to the J. Crew Facebook page for others to see. The artistic activity is much cheaper than buying the actual kicks!
Coloring books are fun, but it's hard to form a connection with a page full of generic characters. Give lil ones a stack of coloring pages they'll recognize by converting mama's digital photo files into black and white sketches that they can doodle on. The professional-looking conversion only requires Adobe Photoshop and five minutes of mom's time.
