Family Activity: DIY Foot Spa

To finish off a family day, I organised a foot spa. The kids thought it was funny, and it was nice to connect with everyone in that way.  I went around to each person, dried their feet and rubbed moisturising cream into them. A simple family fun idea and easy to set up. Bucket or tub […]

Sneaky Date at the Waterpark

After a bit of blah week, my husband and I decided to go somewhere fun as a family. We googled an hour radius from our house and found heated pools with big watersides. Our kids adore the water so it was decided.  It was pretty drive, and after sunscreening the kids, they were in the […]

Mini Library

I’m not really into doing craft for craft’s sake with my kids. I’m not really into cooking with my kids, purely as an activity either. People often think I’m a really crafty person because of my blog, but I’m not. I don’t sew, or crochet or scrapbook or do many of the things associated with […]

Conversations in the Car

“Would you mind dropping me to work in the morning?” my husband asked before we went to sleep. We only have one car, you see, and he usually caught the bus, but it would be a public holiday. Kids would be home from school so a no-rush-morning would make it possible. “Sure, we can get […]

Box Castle

This came together over the course of a week.  I needed to buy a slow cooker and so I had this medium sized box sitting in the corner. Over the week, I added boxes to make a castle shape. It’s really as simple as one larger box, one medium box and some thin boxes (or cardboard rolls) […]

No Time for Fun

I’m sharing things that you don’t need to prepare for OR have extra time to do. I often come back to these things when I think “There’s no time to be fun!” and I incorporate these little things into my day intentionally. 1. Touch I put my hand on their head when they come stand […]

Mini teddy biscuits are extremely popular amongst the little people of society but with all that packaging and cost, you can easily make your own and it doesn’t take long at all. The biscuit mixture is very simple and versatile as you can use it for any biscuit shape or flavour – add sprinkles, add cocoa […]

Don’t “I Promise”

Words. They have power. Power for good. Power to harm. Words matter.   Jotting down this post reminded me of a post I wrote a couple of years ago about using words as concepts overtime.  Words like imagination, creativity, happiness, adventure and discovery are often central to how I communicate with my kids. I guess […]

Fun Ways to Play with Barbie (Plus Giveaway)

Sponsored by Barbie & Digital Parents I was ten. On a visit to the toy section (in Myer by memory), I spotted a doll and immediately fell in love with her. It’s the only time I remember really (really!) wanting a toy as a child. I hadn’t seen a Barbie like her before. She had crimped […]

Barbie Dollhouse – Made From Recycled Materials

Family life is always bustling, but we have made our lives simpler especially for this year, and we are less busy by design. It’s lovely and there’s a healing going on in our family, I can feel it, after 2 very long years of challenges. We didn’t bring many toys with us to New Zealand and so there’s […]

This year, I’ve had the opportunity to think of essentials items that bring value to family life. And not only to family life but things that bring me joy which then I can pass on to the ones around me. I recently shared the autumn list, and I’ll have my winter items up next.   […]

I love milk bottle lids. They are so cute and useful for all sorts of things and you can find of the ways we’ve used them here. The kids are into play shops at the moment, and I made a ‘money’ coin slot for them. This would also be a good activity to keep  toddlers occupied […]
