Pinhole Press scribble pad

Inspired by Swedes, we try our best to play outside every day of the year (take that, NYC winters!), but of course there are many cold dark days where you're cooped up inside most of the time. So, I've been brainstorming fun things to do inside this winter to keep us from going stir crazy.

For indoor play, how adorable is Pinhole Press's new giant scribble pad? You put your child's name and photo on the front, and it comes with a pack of beeswax crayons. I have to say, Toby was so excited when I gave this to him! Pinhole Press has lots of other games, including a memory game, 60-piece puzzle and 12-piece puzzle.
Today, Pinhole Press is giving away a $100 gift certificate so you can pick out photo products for both kids and adults. For a chance to win, please visit Pinhole Press and leave a comment below. A winner will be chosen tomorrow. Good luck! Update: The winner has been emailed. Thanks for playing.

Would your little ones like this? It would make a great gift, too, I think.

P.S. Our winter goal, and how Danish babies sleep outside.

(Photos by Alpha Smoot for Cup of Jo. Pinhole Press is one of my beloved long-term sponsors, and we love their photo products. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that keep Cup of Jo up and running.)

I'm a huge pinhole press fan thanks to this blog. I still need to make our wedding album (I've made books for my mother and mother-in-law already) and have a photo book all queued up for my niece. A gift card would certainly help with these projects and many more to come! Thanks
