I love the new year! Something about starting fresh every year with a clean slate and an optimistic outlook is forever appealing to me. And of course a huge part of starting fresh is reflection. What is the point of making goals without the opportunity to reflect on previous plans and if you were able to accomplish them?
My biggest goal last year was creating this little place on the internet called Babble Dabble Do. I wanted to make an online “studio” parents could visit when they wanted to find unique, educational, creative, and relatively easy projects to do with their children. I still have a long way to go, but all in all I accomplished my goal, now I aim to keep a more steady pace up in 2014 for all my wonderful readers out there! Babble Dabble Do wouldn’t be here without your readership so THANK YOU for being a part of my blog and for coming back to check out our latest ideas!
As part of the reflection process I am highlighting the one post from last year that summed up everything we aim to do here at Babble Dabble Do, a project that combines science and art, that was both fun to do and yielded very pretty results…so without further ado, here is my personal favorite post from 2013: Marbled Milk Paper
Marbled Milk Painting was one of the most challenging and exciting projects I developed last year. It took me oodles of time to figure out the right method to produce beautiful and reproducible results and in the end I was truly pleased at how this project combined science, art, and design, all in one nifty little project. It reinforced my belief that kids learn best by doing hands on creative projects that cross disciplines. If you haven’t checked it out yet click here for the full tutorial.
