A great flickr group to join if you are looking for printable vintage collage images for scrap-booking or kids projects is Collage Images — with almost 18,000 copyright free images including old ads, photos, greeting cards and scientific drawings. You need to join the group to view the images but it’s a very useful resource. (via artsymama)
Babble, Scribble, Read! is a Denver Library web project which looks at ways you can encourage your baby, toddler and preschooler to begin to appreciate the experience of reading way before they are actually ready to read and write themselves. The activities and tips are great.
Make presents a video podcast from the recent Maker Faire of young people making new stuff out of recycled materials.
“If you are a teacher or work with small children, you could follow the Make Magazine lead here and call up your local recycling center and get a load of old technology and then let students take it all apart and put it back together in new ways.”
