Friday Five: A Playful Weekend Roundup

The weekend is finally here! As you sit back and enjoy your well-deserved break this weekend, enjoy our click-list of playful tidbits from around the web.  

Go Ahead--Doodle in the Margins

Looks like doodling isn't just a means to bide time when stuck in a boring meeting or a long class. Studies show that putting pen to paper and letting your ideas come to life on the page may actually help increase your memory power. 


Color Quiz

Remember the dress that circulated social media a few months back? Was it black and white, or black and blue? Regardless of what you thought, you can test to see how well your eyes can distinguish between variations in hues in this quick and fun color quiz.  

Adult Ball Pit

Does diving into a pit of balls really boost creativity in adults? An art installation filled with 81,000 white balls is soon to be open in Park Slope, NY, so it looks like the New Yorkers are about to find out!  


Colorful Ice Cubes

Punch up your happy hour this weekend with pretty pastel ice cubes. A dash of color and a touch of fresh flavor will help make each sip even more refreshing. 


"Now We Are Six" 

As the kids settle back in to the new school year, we are reminded of how fast time flies, how quickly our little ones grow. We think this poem by AA Milne encapsulates the sentiment nicely. 

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six
now and forever.

Happy Weekend, everyone!
