There are 2 to colour in and 2 already done.  Great for story telling, or just for fun. Print the file below by clicking the picture of […]

Delicious Breakfast Recipes

I can’t speak highly enough about the breakfasts by Jenny from Hello Great Health. They are so good for you, and the best thing is Jenny tells you how to be prepared well in advance so an amazing breakfast is easy. I have published 5 overnight breakfasts by Jenny, and you can find them here: Breakfasts […]

Leaf Art Ideas

It is a wonderful thing to get creative with items around your home and leaves are a great example. They are everywhere in all different shapes and sizes. I’ll show you 2 different types of art using leaves from my garden. The first is leaf printing and the other is leaf rubbing. My children really enjoyed […]

One Minute Make-Up Routine

Sponsored by Nuffnang  and Garnier  Don’t laugh at my micro-management; I have fine-tuned a 1-minute, 2 minute and 5 minute make up routine, depending on how much time I have in the morning and where I’m going. I have a 10-minute routine too, but that is for extra special occasions. I enjoy playing with a […]

Waterfall Scene Birthday Cake

I’m not kidding: this is one of the easiest birthday cakes I have made for my kids, and it probably is the most effective too! My eldest daughter turned 14 and she wanted a waterfall cake…so we did a waterfall cake, and it turned out awesome. The entire family was squealing with how awesome it […]

Homemade Gift or Party Favour – Play Dough Kit

I made up play dough kits for the kids during the last school holidays. While I was at it, I made a smaller version for one of my son’s school friends who was coming over for a play date. It was just a small thing for him to take home.  It was so simple to whip […]

Whale Watching on the Gold Coast

Whales in Paradise Last weekend, my family and I headed out with the fantastic crew from Whales in Paradise on the Gold Coast. They are a whale watching operator taking 3 tours each day from the centre of Surfers Paradise. We were waiting on the pier for the 11am tour and I must admit, I was […]

Is Netflix Worth It?

There was a buzz around Netflix, and I accepted a free trial to check it out. If you haven’t heard about Netflix, it’s a popular streaming service for movies, documentaries and television shows that’s now available in Australia and New Zealand. I wasn’t sure how I would find it because I have used other streaming services before, and […]

Little conversations that make you think

I sat with a group of parents in a four seater on the bus. We were the designated supervision crew on a school excursion to the museum. In general chatter, I mentioned my four children. The usual response I get is, “Wow! You’ve got your hands full!” or even “FOUR! Are you crazy?” I’m used […]

DIY Rainbow Scratch Pictures

This is one of my favourite craft activities to do at home and the end result is gorgeous. The first time you try this with the kids they will be amazed at the beautiful and vibrant colours that come through underneath the paint. I have tried this quite a few times and the best result […]

Friendship Bands

I attended a conference in Sydney recently, and received a goodie bag from Spotlight with a variety of colourful mini wool balls. I LOVE Spotlight and they have an online store too.  I can knit basic things, and wool is useful for many non-knitting craft projects too (for example: wooden spoon puppets, mermaid peg dolls, Barbie skirt). […]

Portable Movie Theatre

Sponsored by Bose and Nuffnang I mentioned to my husband that I was reviewing a portable speaker. When I said the brand was Bose, he was estatic! Haha. I didn’t know the brand was such a favourite, so there you go. In a nutshell, the Bose SoundLink Mini II is a portable, bluetooth speaker designed […]

Foam Flower Wreath

We have a stack of craft foam in the craft box; it caught my eye last time I was at Spotlight. It’s proven to be so handy for activities that provide an extension of play for my kids. We used it for mermaid peg dolls, a car wash for matchbox cars, and now a soft flower […]

Enjoying Fashion Fads: Ring Stack

I enjoy fashion but I’m not someone who necessarily keeps up with current styles. I tend to go for classic pieces, and then mix it up with fun seasonal items that happen to catch my eye. Recently went on a work weekend to Sydney (read about it here) and I thought it would be fun to […]

Colourful Water Play

I used to do this when the kids were little. I dug out an old pic from 6 years ago. Aww, bless! Look at them! All you need Bowls or plastic containers Food Colouring  Water Cups/spoons/plastic cups/plastic toys/paint brushes/spray bottle (things like that to add to the play) Note: I only use a few drops so […]

Good for lazy dinner nights or lunch on the weekends too. Ingredients English muffins Grated cheese Tomato sauce Simple toppings: pineapple pieces, bacon pieces, cherry tomato, […]

Being a Blogger: Behind the Scenes

Blogger Weekend: Behind the Scenes I started Be A Fun Mum as a goal for myself after I came out of depression back in 2009. After a few years of blogging personally, I realised I might be able to create a job for myself through my blog after the kids were all back in school, […]

It’s the reward

My teen went away on a camp overseas this past school holidays. They grow up, and start — you know — being all independent and doing things! I missed her! The day after she got back home again, she greeted me in the morning as we readied to go out. “Mum, you look lovely! You […]

Dot Painting

Aboriginal dot paintings are a wonderful tradition that is great to introduce to our kids in a simplistic form. It is also a fun thing to do where minimal items are required. Keep them in your art cupboard and you can do this activity whenever boredom strikes. It is simple and best of all, doesn’t […]
