We’ve written many times about all the benefits of outdoor play for children from both a mental, physical, development and social point of view. Let’s not forget the other major benefit to play- it’s so much FUN. Let’s face it; there is plenty of time to be serious when you are an adult. Childhood should be full of happiness and fun! Having a designated play area in the backyard of your home like a cubby house is so important because children can access it at any time for simple, unstructured play. They can run free with no plan or task or time limit. They’re able to … Read More
I like to consider myself pretty relaxed BUT I have learnt over the years that I have a list of stuff I need to take when I take my kids anywhere. I like to be prepared for all possibilities on outings (after many incidents) so I pack LOTS OF STUFF. We went to a local playground yesterday. For this simple trip I took: A change of clothes for both kids (one is toilet training and the other will find water or mud no matter how well it is hidden).

Another thing families love about our cubbies is…. No spiders! Spiders like hot and dark places with nooks and crannies to hide in and feel safe.

Kids are little sponges. They soak up and absorb everything they see around them. This was very apparent with our children on return from our Christmas holiday in New Zealand. On our first morning home, the kids raced out to their cubby house telling me to stay away as they had something to set up – I was to be called when it was all ready. If the kids were inside our house I would normally be suspicious about what they were up to if I was asked to stay away (it’s not usually a good thing I’ve discovered!), … Read More
