As I was browsing the Kate’s Paperie site for wedding invite inspiration, I came across a few craft kits for the environmentally-minded parenting set…although I think I might actually buy them for myself!

Not a bad thing to teach kids about nature while encouraging their creativity…Of course, I probably wouldn’t go so far as to buy the little ones the endangered species erasers that are also featured on the site, but that’s just me!
