Last summer on a trip to Maine we stumbled upon a gem of a thrift store where I found stacks of these vintage “Children’s Activities” magazines from 1940. It literally makes my teeth hurt that I didn’t buy them all. (Does this phenomenon affect anyone else? Deep regret=dental discomfort?) But luckily I did buy two, and every page is a treat.
Care to learn a new country ballad?
Or perhaps you’d like to shop for some toys? The lines on that swingset are so beautiful (and so is the price—$38.00!), and that electric scissor guy could come in pretty handy with all our projecting.
Even the ad to renew the subscription is fantastic. There is a high chance Mr. Owl and his spectacles will make an appearance in some sort of craft come October.
But I think these guys will make a better spring project; aren’t the angles great? I think I’ll print them on a magnet sheet and let Ivy add some color. Oliver will be happily distracted with them while I make dinner, and though I swore I would never let my fridge become a clutter monster, that ship has long since sailed and we might as well have some pointy little friends on there.
