DIY Googly Eyed Monster Night Shirt

The kids often wear my or my husband’s T-shirts to bed. I get it. They are so baggy and comfy! The needed more sleep gear, so this time, bought men’s size small white T-shirts (they cost $4) and we decorated them with google eyed monsters. The kids are absolutely wrapped with them! So simple to […]

Vanilla & Strawberry Stack

This is one of those recipes that’s great to have on hand for when people come over for lunch or dinner.  I have posted a few healthier recipes on Be A Fun Mum lately but I think it is time to treat ourselves with something completely naughty and delicious. I guess you can say that […]

Goldfish in a Jar

Here’s a cute little project DIY project I did with my younger kids and they loved it. It’s so, so easy and cute. The mini aquarium/liquid-free-snow-globes are now sitting proudly in their rooms. Materials Paper Clip Blu Tack Jar (I used a plastic jar from a discount store) Blue paper (or cellophane)  Scissors Craft Glue […]

Review: Super Sparkle Barbie

We got a first look at the brand new Barbie doll from Mattel, set to be released in March 2015.  Meet Super Sparkle (or Princess Kara when she’s not in disguise) in Barbie’s new movie. Barbie™ in Princess Power is the first Barbie film released at the movies (read the synopsis at the end of this post […]

Bi-Carb It! The Back to School Laundry List

There are many ways to use bi-carb soda for the little jobs that result from having kids at school, from deodorising shoes and bags to cleaning wet towels after sitting in a bag at school on swimming day and washing uniforms.  I was talking to the team at Mackenzie’s (Aussie owned company) about their Bi-Carb tips and have […]

Model for a Day

The day before I went to Dubai (last December), I flew from Brisbane to Sydney a Mother & Baby Australia Magazine photoshoot. I remember reading the magazine when I was pregnant with my kids, and it’s a rather strange (and a bit awesome) being featured inside.  This year I’m pleased to be one of Mother & Baby’s […]

Top 10 Dr Seuss Books

Dr Seuss formed a part of my childhood. My favourite as a kid was Hop on Pop.  I thought it hilarious…especially the “STOP! You must not hop on pop” bit. After doing a bit of research I found an article on CNN about a complaint that was made to the Toronto Library about the much-loved book because […]

Plan Travel Backpack for Kids

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Expedia I love the idea of exploring the world with my kids, and in the past few years, it’s become a reality. Sharing posts like this get me excited about all our adventures to come!  When we travel overseas, my kids have their own dedicated backpack with items that make travelling comfortable and fun. We […]

Caramel Popcorn (Refined Sugar Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan, contains Nuts!)

  One of the things I’m working on this year is reducing the amount of refined sugar I use in baking and treat recipes. I noticed the I Quit Sugar Kids Cookbook  launched (by Sarah Wilson, popular author and blogger at I Quit Sugar) and emailed the publisher to ask if they would share one of the recipes from the cookbook. […]

Strawberry Hearts

Strawberry hearts are super simple to make. They are great for dipping in chocolate, the lunch box, fruit salad or made into fruit kebabs.   Here’s a 30 second video on how to make them. 

Lunch Box: Oat & Bran Cookies

Now that school is back, I find filling the lunch boxes each day with foods that are healthy as well as satisfying for your children can be a bit challenging at times. Especially towards the end of the week when my fridge stores are running a little low. If you have a food processor, these […]

School Morning Harmony

We did it. Again. Everyone dressed and out the door with socks on and food to eat. It’s like a mini celebration. Like my lunch box journey, the smoothness of school mornings have improved greatly over the years. Most of that comes down to having good systems in place to ensure everyone is fed, dressed in […]

Love the Moment Poster Printable

I don’t subscribe to the generalisation that every single moment needs to be amazing or that you have to love and celebrate every moment with your kids. That’s not what the Love the Moment Challenges (I developed as monthly challenges in 2010) are about. Rather it’s about connection and weaving significance into the moments you have. In […]

Lego Storage Ideas

Aunty Bon’s house is one of the most fun places for my kids. She has a huge Lego collection my kids are crazy about. Not to mention the DEATH STAR. Yes, a Star Wars Death Star all set up and ready to play with.  Lego storage is not a big issue for us yet, but […]

A Child-Sized City, Run by Kids: KidZania in Dubai

I adore the concept behind the edutainment (entertainment and education) facility KidZania, because it’s about harnessing what children do naturally: role-playing. I know my children would be fully engrossed in this place. Not just entertained, but engaged. And that is why I wanted to write an entire post about it.  What is Kidzania? Essentially, KidZania […]

Family Internet Safety

Internet safety is an increasing concern of mine as the children get older so I have Justin, a data network and security expert, here with 5 tips to keep your family safe while enjoying the benefits of the internet. The Internet has certainly permeated every facet of our lives, changing how we shop, socialise, research and […]

Coffee with Tea: House Tour

I love to share real homes of real families. You can find all the Feature Homes on the blog here.  Home: it’s where memories are created and people are shaped  through both the happy times and the challenging times.   Before Christmas, I caught up with Tea (pronounced Tee-ah) at her home in Brisbane.  Tea […]

Australia Day Watermelon & Mint Mocktail

Besides being a national holiday Australia Day is, in Aussie speak, ‘a stinka’. It’s pretty normal to be soaking up a very un-cool 32 degrees and this year I’m going to be ready with a refreshing Watermelon & Mint Mocktail in hand as I sit by the pool.  Ingredients ¼ Seedless Watermelon (complete 24 hours […]

Muesli Bar Recipe (nut free)

Homemade muesli bars are a fantastic lunch box option and can be healthier than the store bought variety. At least you know what is going into them and you can alter the ingredients to suit the tastes of your children. You can add lots of extra goodness such as pepitas and chia seeds but I […]
