News: We’re on YouTube!

The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and everywhere I look it seems like something new is beginning – isn’t spring the best? It’s taken me a while to get this together, but I just started something new over on YouTube…and I can’t wait for you to see what’s in store!

Honesty time – this is a big experiment. I have a lot of fun “firsts” planned – some awesome kid-DIYs, field trips, introductions, behind-the-scenes “how it’s made” clips, a live video event (…in which I’ll show you exactly how little I know about pulling off live video events!). But at the end of the day, this channel is for you guys – let me know what you’d like to see! If you have suggestions or recommendations, leave them in the comments or email! I’d like this to be a super fun way to connect, give you a better idea of who I am (hi, I’m Amanda – you hardly even know me yet!) and most of all, just exist as a little oasis of creativity on the internet. A place for families to find cool stuff – it’s really as simple as that!

Bonus? I’ve created a bunch of fun playlists with a stellar selection of videos from our favorite YouTubers! Our channel also has some sidebar recommendations for cool kid-friendly channels to follow. It’s like a Pinterest you can watch! Ready to take a peek? You can head over to the very official channel here, or just hit that subscribe button at the end of the video!
