Marble Painting

This is wonderful activity to do with your little ones as it requires no artistic skill at all. It feels like playing an old pin ball machine and you can create some colourful patterns and designs. With hardly any equipment, it is simple, quick and not very messy. My kind of art! Today we made […]

A Sandpit Without Having a Sandpit

My husband and I have had to move a lot since having children. When you live a nomadic-of-sorts life, it’s difficult to achieve certain things like a backyard sandpit or cubby house.  My son especially enjoys playing with sand and so I wanted to give him that experience without the big deal of doing a sandpit (even a […]

HUGE Colouring Pages

These big colouring pages are something to keep in mind for the upcoming school holidays, as a novel gift idea coupled with drawing pens or to decorate a bedroom wall.  They would make a wonderful teacher gift too; all the children in the class could work on it, and get the poster laminated or framed for the […]

Special Occassion Make Up (and taking it off)

Sponsored by Nuffnang and Garnier I’m doing a series of review posts featuring Garnier products I use regularly. In a previous post (link), I shared 3 super quick routine looks (1-minute; 2-minute; 5-mintute) I have up my sleeve, depending on how much time I have of a morning. If I have a little more time […]

French Knitted Hairband – Easy for Kids to Make

French knitting is an easy project for kids and I’ve done it with my girls many times. We knit with a cardboard roll and paddle pop sticks. Works a treat! The kids usually make scarfs, but this time, we decided to make a head band and it works really well because the finish product has a […]

Fun things to put in your handbag

Depending on what stage our family life is at, I have small toys, dedicated for the handbag for times when we are out and about. An example: for the younger kids when we are watching older kids play sport, or just general waiting times. The idea is the toys are ONLY out for those special […]

Punch Holes in Leaves

A paper punch is not the sort of thing you would think to take the park, but it can be fun! Pop it in your bag, and the kids can make gorgeous mini shapes out of leaves, or even do collage.  A single hole punch works too. Just a simple thing. More Leaf Art Ideas […]

Father’s Day Mini Book

We are a book loving family and the kids make their own books often. I already had the words for a Father’s Day Printable and so we made it into a mini book too. It’s really very easy to make, and would make a wonderful gift/card idea for Father’s Day. Materials 7 pieces of cardstock […]

Dear Dad Letter

I adore fill in the bank letters for kids. I did one around Mother’s Day and with Father’s Day around the corner, I did a version for Dads too, with help from my designer friend Liss from LissLetters. There is a black and white and coloured version that are free to download and use. Just click […]

HELLO Malteser Slice

Are you ready for this recipe? I hope so because it is easy to make sure to impress adults and kids alike. It is not a recipe I made all the time given the high sugar content but every now and then makes me enjoy it even more. Check out the ‘Simple home cook’ and […]

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 […]
