#NodTourBus Welcome Home Bash!

Post by Lauren Baker, our fearless marketing events manager

We turned our #NodTourBus into a brand-spanking-new bookmobile, packed it with tons of our favorite Little Golden Books and hit the road this spring. After almost 3,000 miles and stops everywhere from Atlanta to Washington D.C. to Boston and Pittsburgh and a few other cities, the #NodTourBus is headed home!

To celebrate the return of our a-little-less-brand-spanking-new bookmobile, we’re throwing a Welcome Home Bash at our North & Clybourn store this Saturday from 10:00am-1:00pm. Join us for magic, music, face painting, snacks and so much more! Don’t forget to RSVP to nodevents@landofnod.com.

Check out all the fun we had on our tour on Instagram with #NodTourBus. And here’s a few of our favorite snaps.

When Lauren isn’t planning ridiculously awesome #nodevents for The Land of Nod, she spends her time putting up with the crazy antics of her English Bulldog, Lola. She also loves searching for treasures in vintage stores and summer antique markets. Due to her previous adventure living in Canada, she has a strong obsession to Hudson Bay stripes, as well as the fine cuisine of poutine (Don’t make her choose between the two…that’s like choosing between Ryan Gosling and Jason Bateman for her!).

DIY Toddler Finger Painting Geometric Art

Post by Colleen of Lemon Thistle I’m such an advocate for children creating art – no matter how young. My kids started finger painting when they could sit up (I use a recipe that’s edible) and now that they’re officially toddlers, they’ve graduated to real paint. I love having their artwork in our home, but…
