Starting a Collection

Any strange or unique kid collections out there? From coins to beer bottle caps, we enjoyed collecting as a kid. Collecting seems to be such a natural inclination for children, and it's also such a great way to encourage learning in the home. The Smithsonian has a nice guide to get you started...

The Smithsonian Guide explains the value of collecting, and gives kids ideas on what they might collect.

Not only is the collecting part educational, but some of those collections can make a really nice design element. (See our previous post on Displaying Collections from Cookie Magazine)

Do your kids have a collection?
