Papercraft your own Seal of Approval

Perhaps you haven’t heard the term ‘papercraft’ before, well you are in for a treat. Papercraft is all about making three-dimension models or objects out of paper. Curious yet? This is an activity that you and your children can enjoy in several ways. You can download all of the files for free, look for the links near the bottom of the post.

Seth the Seal of Approval as a Papercraft

The first option is downloading the black and white version so that your child can color Seth on their own.  The other option is downloading the version that has been colored and textured by Louis the illustrator of The Seal of Approval. Kids enjoy cutting things out, but you may need to do the cutting for younger children or at least supervise as the cutting takes place (there are a few tricky cuts involved). Both options lead to great outcomes. If you don’t have any double-sided tape, I suggest using a glue-stick.

Hopefully, we’ll offer some more papercraft characters in the future. But until then, please share pictures of you and your kids putting this together with us on our Facebook page, Twitter, or Instagram accounts. We can’t wait to see how your version turns out, #PapercraftSeth.

And if you don’t already have a copy of The Seal of Approval, you can get a copy today as a paperback or electronically for Kindle.

Summer Is A Slippery Seal

It seems like the Summer goes by more quickly than preferred (especially by children). Trying to enjoy every passing day can be a challenge, especially because of the unpredictable weather. Perhaps you were expecting a sunny day and the rain ruined your plans. Maybe it is just too hot to be enjoyable, even at the pool. Whatever the case, we have a treat that will work no matter the weather or time of day.

Hopefully, you noticed that we launched our second children’s book, “The Seal of Approval” this month. We truly hope you’ll grab a copy if you haven’t already ready, but today is all about Seth. After all, he is The Seal of Approval. So we created a free downloadable Seth coloring page. We believe he can help inspire your child to see the value of hard work and giving the best you have every day.

Seth really is The Seal of ApprovalIf you aren’t familiar with Seth. You need to get acquainted with him. He’ll be making many more appearances in our kid-friendly activities throughout the year.

So what are you waiting for? Print out a few copies and start coloring. Color where it is nice and cool or outside in the sun by the pool (just remember paper isn’t waterproof).

Approval Is What You Seek

I’m sure we can all relate during the era of social media. We all want approval on some level, don’t we? Believe me, being yourself is one of life’s great challenges.

Children are constantly seeking approval from parents, siblings, and extended family. Once they begin school new paths for approval are found or forged with their peers and school teachers. It is important to instill great life lessons from an early age. The best lessons come from positive role models and examples. However, we don’t all get those throughout our lives (at least not consistently).

So what does this really mean? We must develop our own character and look internally for satisfaction and validation. We must protect our character and reputation. But why does this really matter? Because today our new children’s book, “The Seal of Approval” is launching. You can now learn where the phrase originated (if you believe everything you read in a children’s book).

The Seal of Approval - Book CoverCurrently, only the e-book is available, however, the paperback version will be launching soon.

Feel free to also check out our other children’s book, “Where’s Its Pair?” available electronically and as a paperback.
