We bring you a regular little round up of cool things we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop...

Described as a cross between a community centre, a laboratory, a gallery, a science centre and a museum, the Institute of Imagination London sounds ACE.

On a mission to create the right conditions for kids to flex their creative muscles and let their imaginations run riot in ways that open up the worlds of science, technology and art (and all the fun stuff in between), the Institute hosts their first 'lab live' event, 'recode', on Saturday 11th February.

Perfect for 5 - 12 year olds and their families, the event offers a bunch of excellent hands-on workshops - about dance and movement, crafting and engineering, numbers and language, technology and coding. 'recode' takes place at the Institute of Imagination's new Imagination Lab at The Workshop on London’s Albert Embankment. To find out all about it and to book tickets, visit the website

This week, the Wooden Works of multi-talented Japanese artist Zenji Funabashi caught our eye and made our faces smile. Featuring wooden sculptures named House, Dog, Four Children and Heart Boy among others, they are a flippin' delight. This one, 'Mother & Child' is our favourite. You can see the full collection here on Zenji's Behance profile.

And if you're after a little bit of respite from these chilly winter days, you might want to take a trip to 'Sunny Side Up', an exhibition by king of colour himself, Josef Albers. The show runs until March 10th at the David Zwirner Gallery in London. Will you just look at all that scrummy YELLOW!

Since it's creator of everyone's favourite bear, A.A Milne's birthday this week, we thought it might be nice to leave you with Five Minutes of Winnie The Pooh courtesy of BibliOdyssey's lovely archive. Enjoy!

We can't give you a neat list of fool-proof pre-bed activities, but we can offer you some tips on how to establish your own.
