We’ve been on a sort of hiatus this past week. Isis and Electra have both come down with massive head colds while I’ve been trying to get all our packages shipped to the States so that they make it back before Christmas. Pair those events with rain, 45 degree F temperatures, and bike and train as our sole modes of transport and at times the cookie was starting to crumble. The good news is that today the sun came out, we had an amazing day at the park, Isis cut her top front tooth (looks like her Christmas wish will come true) and we finished this awesome project that’s been in the works for a while. Click through the slideshow for tips on how to make a Hoshi Stool for your kids.

- This is a great project for anyone who wants to make something for a child by hand, but doesn’t have a wood shop, knitting skills, or a sewing machine. You can put this project together in the most studio of apartments, and put your leftover cardboard out (or collect the cardboard that you need) on recycling day. We used a total of 32 layers, but you can vary the width based on your preference.
