    If you're looking for a gift for an artsy little one – boom! - here it is. Packaged in a space-saving tube, you'll find a good-quality, plain canvas smock, 8 chubby short-handled brushes in a variety of sizes, and three nesting paint or water cups with lids. I love the thickness of the natural canvas smock, and it includes stitched pockets to hold all of the brushes in the front as well. Young artists can use it as-is, or paint their own custom design on the smock. Just add some tempera paints and paper and they'll be all set. – Jess

    So, you're writing stories in English class, and your reluctant writer is whiny and reticent. "Why do we have to write stories? I can't think of anything!" If you can't get them out of their writing slump by suggesting "Well, let's brainstorm," or "Look around you for ideas," just say (with a twinkle in your eye) - "Forget it, let's just play a game instead." Of course, five or ten minutes later they'll realize they're not getting off the story-writing hook, but they'll probably be enjoying themselves so much they'll forget to pout. The game format is similar to most board games your family plays, with a large board featuring a wandering path from beginning to end. Besides a die, scoring pad and markers, the game features eight decks of story element cards and a story outline pad. Basically, as players move along the board, they will collect specific story element cards, and weave them into a story. Card decks are clearly labeled and include topic sentence, plot, character, setting, description, dialogue, lesson, and resolution cards. At the beginning of the game, each player receives a topic sentence. This is the only topic sentence card they will receive, and should be used towards the beginning of the story. As they roll the die, they will land on spaces labeled with the names of corresponding story element cards, and will draw the top card from the stack. By the end of the game, they should have at least one of each element card, and at least five description cards. Then, the writing begins! Choosing from their collected cards, the writer decides which cards he wants to incorporate into his or her story, and writes them onto the outline sheet. The outline begins with the topic sentence, and features blanks to fill in for each part of the story. Under "Setting", they must determine the "where", "when" and descriptors. Under character, they must identify the good guys and the bad guys, and describe both. For the plot, they must identify the problem, and decide on the order of events. Under "Resolution" and "Lesson", they will decide how the "Resolution" and "Lesson" cards they chose relate to their story, and how it all wraps up. Now, players each have a good framework for a story; the trick is now fleshing it out into an actual short story, which may be easier at this point, since a lot of the "unknowns" have been identified. A scoring sheet will help Mom decide if the story included all the necessary components, and will inspire kids not to skimp on the "less exciting" stuff. Since inventing characters, conflicts and settings sometimes takes a lot of steam out of even the more enthused young writers, I would imagine that taking that pressure off of them in this way would free up their imaginations to write a much more well-rounded, exciting story. I'll bet that even Mom and Dad will want to play this one! - Jess

    We're tired of drawing those x,y axis lines on graph paper! Now, it'll be easy with our newfound rubber stamp. Children can stamp right on their work paper - no need for a separate sheet of graph paper. Stamp features a 144-block grid with central x/y axis, has a large, easy-grip handle and measures 3" x 3". The size makes it a bit large for a traditionally-sized stamp pad. It will work well with a jumbo stamp pad, such as the large black ink pad below.

    Transparent tracing paper can be used for sketches and overlays. Make an overlay of different possible images and try them out on a background. Draw one jungle animal on a page and put them over a rainforest background to find the right positioning. Write a quote from a book or a favorite poem on a piece of this paper, lay it over a photograph, frame it and give as a gift. There are a lot of possibilities with this transparent paper. ~ Sara
