Organic Gardening Bug Spray

Tips for Enjoying School Holiday With Your Kids

I joked with a friend the other day, “I can’t believe the kids expect to be fed. Every. Single. Day!” They are always hungry, so it seems, on the school holidays. Despite being a feeding machine, dealing with constant shifting family dynamics and very little quiet, I do enjoy the school holidays (most of the […]

Things have been busy the last couple of weeks as I have been organising myself (and the entire family in my absence) to head to Israel with not-for-profit organisation called Vibe Israel.

Mini Ceramic Plates for Play

Blast From the Past: DINKY Diary (1989)

I’ve become extremely nostalgic of late. I find myself revisiting movies I enjoyed as a child, hunting down toys I adored like Sweet Secrets and Barbie, and looking through old photos. As I was hunting through a memory box, I discovered my dinky diary organiser from 1989. These were all the rage when I was […]

Toy Cars in the Backyard: Off-Roading Inspired Play

I went on a test drive in a Ford Everest on the Lahars of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, and it was amazing. Since returning home to Australia, I’ve been thinking about how I could turn my experience into inspired play for my car-crazy son. So we set up a temporary sand pit in an […]

DIY Trinket Bowls

I had left over air dry clay from another project, and I was wondering what to do with it. I often take jewellery on and off during the day or at night before I go to bed; while I have one of those big jewellery holders, I find myself overloading my trinket bowls instead because […]

Easter may only be 5 weeks away, but I do like to get organized with fun craft activities I can do with my kids. The Easter long weekend falls at the end of school holidays for us, so there will be plenty of time before Easter to get crafting. Your school may hold an Easter Hat […]

Kids movies that parents love best

Undoubtedly, one of the most exciting things about having children is that they provide you with the perfect excuse to watch kids’ movies… right? The best films for children usually have plenty of humour and insightful moments for adults to enjoy as well. Recently, we asked the Be a Fun Mum community about your favourite kids’ […]

These banana muffins are super simple to make and freeze well. Great for the lunch box. I did some work for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and did some recipe testing and this was a hit. It doesn’t taste of mayo either. I made a couple of batches of these and put them in the freezer to pull out […]

Caramel and Nut Slice

This is a new recipe and it sure is a winner. I have adapted an existing recipe to simplify and make it quicker. Often when making a slice, the base is baked separately then the topping is then baked again. I have combined it into one process and the result was lovely. My family loved […]

Peg Doll Craft: Mermaids & Pirates

Brought to you by Spotlight I’ve come to highly value crafting with my children. There’s much learning that happens when creating, from the planning and throughout the making stage. What I’ve noticed is the importance of allowing the trial and error process that inherently comes with creating. Problem solving is a key skill for life, […]

DIY Box Dollhouse

I enjoy creating. It’s a wonderful, wonderful thing. My kids are creative creatures themselves, and they do a lot of craft unassisted, however sometimes I make things FOR them, not necessarily with them, and this dollhouses project is an example. I had SO much fun putting it all together. It’s like playing with house designs on a […]

Paddle pop sticks are so handy to have around! They are the sort of building material you can plonk on a table with glue during the school holidays or the weekend and let the kids create something, anything! Boats are always a fun one because they float, and the sails work too. Below are instructions […]

A Day in the Suburbs With A Cargo Bike

This is Rob and Edwin.

I adore the concept; it reminded me of […]
