The Beloved Child’s Toy I Have BANNED in my House

index

I’m pretty loose when it comes to restrictions on the kids and their creativity. Finger paint, watercolors, we have about four billion crayons and colored pencils at any given point. We have a child’s size easel in our dining room and rolls upon rolls of white paper ready to go at any moment.
