ArtsCetera - Music for Aadvarks

We took a summer session in Park Slope on Friday morning.

I really liked the class. Luna loved it. Very fun and energetic, sing-along, dance, playing with instruments, balls, scarfs, there was not even 1 minute I felt the class was boring.
The teacher Liz is very nice and have great energy and the class had nice vibe with parents and caregiver involved.

They are moving this fall to another location, which i think it's great because this place looked like someone's basement. I can't wait to find out if this class is available and with the same teacher. we are definitely in!!

Swimming class @ YMCA Park Slope

This time we took Inea class at 10:15am on Sunday.
It's the first swimming class ever for Luna and we were hoping it would be a fun class.

Huge dissapointment.

their swimming pool is small. only 3 lanes. then they close half of the pool(i just wonder why. because there was no one there!) and there are about 15 pair of babies and parents back to back. very uncomfortable and claustrophobic.

And the teacher sucked!!! it took me a while to realize there was someone leading the class. No energy, no fun, just straight up boring.

So we skipped a few classes towards the end and just headed out to the beach.

the class is only for 30 mins but worth sacrificing precious summer weekend.

Personalized Name Hangers for Children’s Clothing



Nice feature on Inhabitots.
Simple and stylish.

I used make barbed wire jewerly using 5mm aluminum wire. I can relate to this.
Maybe one day I'll make something like this to Luna.

How to make a beach ball lantern



I found this cool craft tutorial on Zakka Life.

This is what you use to make.


This is traditional and ordinary paper toy from Japan. Growing up in japan, I always had this around when I was little, but never relate this to a beach ball.

I always thought this paper ball is kind of pointless because 1. it's made of thin paper. breaks easily. 2. doesn't float in the air like baloons. boring.

what a cute idea. thank you Zakka life!

Charley Harper 123's - beautiful board book. Luna loves this one.

123 New York.
I like Kevin Somers's bold and simple illustrations. Yellow cabs, subway train, bridges.. living in NYC, this is something Luna can relate to.

I'm curious to check out this book too:
