treasure garland


Collecting little treasures is probably a universal behavior of kids.  It’s very possible it’s genetic too ;) But what to do with all the shells, sticks and stones we bring home every vacation?

paper bird


I learned to fold this bird from my mother a long time ago. And even before I had a daughter, it proved to be a very handy skill. This way you can create a little toy anywhere and make children smile. A few years ago we made a trip to Bhutan. In one village I folded about 7 of these little birds. Some of these birds travelled ahead because the next day when we arrived in the next village, I saw children playing with my birds. All you need is a square piece of paper. And learn the folding instructions by heart ;)
