Every week we bring you a little round up of cool stuff we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop! 

LA-based record label Rockabye Baby makes adult music baby-friendly and kids music adult-friendly by reworking popular rock and pop songs into plinky lullabies. This year, in celebration of the label's 10th anniversary, Rockabye Baby release an extra special compilation featuring lullaby versions of tracks by the likes of David Bowie, Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem and Outkast. You can see the full track listing here.  Have a listen to Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' below. It's pretty ace! Zzzz... 

Design a menu for a cafe, decorate your dream ice cream sundae and learn how food is grown, prepared, cooked and presented with this family activity book by Cicada Books. Illustrated by Louise Lockhart (who you might know as The Printed Peanut), Playing With Food is plates and plates of colourful fun. Add this to your 'summer holiday survival kit' and keep the kids occupied! 

In his Polyspolia project, London based designer Will Yates-Johnson nudges ideas about recycling and upcycling into really mind blowing territory where discarded objects are forever incorporated into the making of new ones! We're not explaining this very well, are we? You can read more here. We just really wanted to show you these super-cool objects! 

This summer, as part of an events series hosted by House of Illustration and St. Pancras International, special BFG illustrations by Quentin Blake will be exhibited in the station. Not only that, but budding young artists can design their very own giant at BFG-inspired illustration workshops. If you're in London, pop by and take a look!

Newborn Baby Bath Time? Create a stress free washing routine

Trying to convince your wiggling jiggling newborn baby that bath time is a soothing and beautiful bonding experience to be enjoyed (you know, like it says in all those blinkin' baby books) isn’t easy. Add to the mix a tired parent who’s only just getting the hang of baby bath time themselves (you) and things can get a bit tricky, right? Take a deep breath. It’s going to be fine. 

Sleep-Friendly Bedrooms for Happy Kids

In an ideal world, your kids’ bedroom would be specifically designed for and exclusively set aside for sleeping. However, it’s more likely that your kids’ bedroom doubles/triples/quadruples up as lots of different things - a play room, a study, a lounge - and a bunch of other things as your kids’ imaginations dictate. So - how on EARTH do you make sure that, when it comes to creating the best sleep environment for your kids, that their bedroom is up to the job? We've got a few tips for you!
