6-Year-Old's Birthday!

I've been lucky enough to be blessed with an invite to a fabulous birthday soiree, which will include not ONLY a pinata, but also a bounce house! (I hope I get to play, too!) So what does one give to a 6-year-old princess? I'm embarrassed to say I did some internet research to see what the kids are into nowadays... but I settled on something that I think I would have enjoyed, and also inspires the imagination!

Making it productive!

Okay, so maybe you don't *want* your vacation time to be productive. But, if you DO, I suggest: bringing SO many projects that you can't help but be into working on at least one of them. I'm spending a few days on "the North Shore" (of Lake Superior) and I brought with me: (3) cross-stitch projects, (3) books, and (2) skeins of yarn for crocheting. And some magazines. And my laptop. It was total overload, but hopping from one to another was sort of therapeutic in a way.
