I just wanted to let you know that Paul & Paula now also has a little space dedicated to the little people in our lives…

The blog is read by you, the parents… and I like the idea to also give something to your children and to bring Paul & Paula from the screen to the kitchen table…
Together with my friend Claire we had the idea to share a few fun things you can easily download and print out at home – like colouring pages, play money, fortune tellers and and and… it is all in here.

We will add and change this page regularly to go with the seasons and to keep your little ones engaged.

And of course we would love to see what your kids created, please share their work on Instagram with #craftmakeplay so we can follow along their journeys too!
