Fan Mail ... "LOVE IT!"

Posted by Alison Lee on

 We wanted to share some of the awesome reviews and notes we've received from customers. We love hearing from you, so please continue to send us your ideas, suggestions and thoughts! hello@commonthreadkids.com   "Comfortable, Safe and Trendy - love it. We love this scarf! The scarf came to us as a gift and my one year old loves wearing it. It adds a little extra warmth and a whole lot of fashion to her wardrobe.

When Your Kids Like to Scramble: Make Quiche

Posted by Alison Lee on

The girls have been really excited about scrambling eggs. 1, 2, 3, ... 6 scrambled eggs. They were doing such a great job, I couldn't bring myself to stop them. We have a Montessori household.

ABC's of Cooking With Kids: Always Bake Cobblers

Posted by Alison Lee on

When it comes to cooking with kids, ABC: Always Bake Cobblers. If not cobbler, take it to the next letter and ABCD: Always Be Cooking Dessert.  Sure, savory is swell, but dessert is - how do you say it? #winning. You can't beat those smiles of satisfaction when kids are eating a tasty dessert they helped make. Our winning dessert of the day: Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler. Inspired by the very ripe blueberries on my counter in danger of being composted the next day, I googled blueberry desserts and happened upon allrecipes.com. The result was far more inspirational than my original inspiration. Why we love...
