Kid’s Games Link roundup

Some really fun kid links (via Boing Boing) for the month of October –

DIY Kid’s Drinking Straws

Do-It-Yourself Crazy Drinking straws – Build any number of weird arrangements of straws to drink from multiple glasses at a time.

I bet this would be great fun at a Halloween party to create some scary concoctions.

Kids Crochet Octopus

An excellent interview with Jessica Polka and her Wunderkammer (Wonder Chamber.)

Jessica has created some amazing crochet “specimens” that remind me of a mix between The Life Aquatic and carnival side shows.

You can even purchase the patterns for some of her designs if you’re the crafty type yourself.

Kid’s Halloween Cupcakes

Wendy from Wisdom of the Moon has whipped up some utterly delicious Halloween cupcakes

I absolutely love Halloween, and these cupcakes would be sure to steal the show with any kid’s who see them.

Children’s Paper Craft Models

And finally, Matt has created his first papercraft model named Grumm.

Not only has he created it, but he’s made a nifty little PDF file that you can download, printout, and put together to recreate his model yourself!

Three cheers for kid’s party games and family fun.

Here are some of the best children’s links that I’ve found over the last week:

  • The Toy Review – A great blog for parents that reviews fun toys for kids. Check out the Gelli Baff, why don’t they make fun things like this for Adults?
  • If you’re planning on a trip to Disney, check out the Animal Kingdon Lodge Resort – From your room, you actually overlook a 33-acre wildlife reserve.
  • Over 800 free games for children at up to ten. Lots of little webgames like coloring and puzzles for 6-10 year olds.
  • Google has a bunch of old Dr. Seuss videos available on Google video
