    Hi Kristy!

    First of all, thanks for your post!

    I think your ideas are great, the dinnerware is fun and colourful! But still, it seems to me that it will have a very limited lifetime: kids will grow really fast and will quickly reject these kinds of dinnerware.

    If I may, I’d suggest alternatives that may have a longer lifespan in your house, and that are compatible both with the little ones in your house and the adults in it. Remember that sharing the same dishes with the adults may develop their self-confidence and it’s highly promoted by methodologies like the Montessori method.

    Great post! 🙂

    I just came across your site, and I love it!
    My daughter is still too small (6 months old), but I am always looking for things to do with her when she’s a bit older
