My Gnome on the Roam
My Gnome on the Roam is an adorable, inventive, creative and well-executed concept come to life. If you are looking for fun ways to spend more time with the family, without electronic gadgets, this should be on your list. The set includes a suitcase box, a blank journal, the Gnome on the Roam book, a little white gnome, a log pencil and a ‘this belongs to’ tag. It all has been put together by a very talented designer; all the pieces are minimal and straightforward, yet stylish and adorable. The suitcase is well made and even the packing material inside matches the aesthetic. Parents really appreciated all the thought that went into this. The entire idea here (and the story in the book) is about families spending quality time together making memories. You are encouraged to spend 15 minutes together as a family every day and to record the things you do in the journal to make your own Gnome book. The included gnome figure come in plain white and that is on purpose – the instructions encourage your kids to color/decorate the gnome themselves. There are also supplemental ideas/suggestions on the website, where you will also find printable coloring pages, daily ideas and inspiration.
