Design for Kids Series: Design Your Own Font!

Today is a big day. Stacy and I have been dreaming up a Design for Kids Series for some time now and we are finally ready to unveil it! One of the things I love about Kids Stuff World is the wonderful curation of projects and ideas that appeal to design-minded parents everywhere. I blog over at Babble Dabble Do and am a designer by trade; I am very passionate about the idea of introducing design to kids, maybe it’s because I live and breathe design but it may also have to do with the fact that I think design is one of the greatest skills you can give a child. For a primer on design and why I think it’s so important for kids pop over to my site where I wax poetic about it!
