a mini day

Inspiried by the fact that work has begun on a third book for When You Were Small by Sara O'Leary and illustrated by Julie Morstad, I thought how much fun it would be to have a mini day.

Make a mini book. The tinier the better!

(Image from Bella's Pockets -- a Simply Read/ Read Leaf title yet to be released, but very cool!)

Make some mini toys:

A mini origami star. A simple how-to is here.
And if you get really into it... you could always make a whole rainbow:

A mini toy parachute. (I always loved these!) There is a good how-to here.

Or, if you have some time: a mini house out of a shoebox here.

Make some mini food (you may have to eat a lot of it!) Like these cute mini bagels. (Recipe here)

Or some mini carrot cakes. (So cute!)

Or some mini raspberry cupcakes!

And look at some mini food for dollhouses, at this super cute "mini food blog"

And of course, read some books of tiny things (or of tiny size):

A Hole is to Dig

The Borrowers

(The Borrowers is soon to be a Miyazaki anime!)

When You Were Small
