It’s the small things kids love most

Now that we are well and truly back into the school year and daily grind, it’s easy for parental guilt to sink in. We’re so busy with work, life and endless to-do lists, we’re exhausted, and playing with our kids is not always our top priority. And it shouldn’t always be, either – that’s life. But, as the single mother of an only child, I can’t help but get the guilts when my daughter asks me to play outside and I don’t have the time (or simply don’t want to). That’s when I remind myself it’s the simple things that … Read More

Outdoor Christmas Activities For The School Holidays

Here in Queensland, it’s the last week of school – and for three weeks already, my daughter has been asking me what we will be doing over the school holidays! I’m also asking myself… Sadly, we will not be holidaying in Vanuatu. We also won’t be camping (too hot!), spending endless days relaxing on the beach (we live in the sticks and everywhere is on fire) or having a big Christmas do with family (they’re all interstate). I am, however, betting on winning that Gold Coast townhouse I bought a raffle ticket for, which will be drawn on Christmas Eve. … Read More

Messy play ideas for outside

Let’s face it, kids can be pretty gross. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has shrieked, “Don’t touch me don’t touch me DON’T TOUCH ME!” with steadily increasing volume at my child’s brown and sticky outstretched hands. If it’s not messy, it’s just not fun. Mud, glue, dirt, insects, feathers, sand, glitter … these are all things my six-year-old daughter loves to play with. They also have a delightful way of ending up in my handbag. And sometimes my hair. I swear I could have made my own backyard sandpit by now with the amount of sand I … Read More

Playing with your child when you don’t want to play

“MUM! Let’s play chasey.” “MUM! Jump on the trampoline with me!” “MUM! If you don’t play hide and seek, you can never have coffee again.” “MUM! I’ll pretend I’m a cat, and you pretend you’re mum.” Sometimes, I just don’t want to play. Scratch that, about 98% of the time, I don’t want to play! Every day, usually multiple times, my six-year-old daughter demands I play some kind of (often baffling) game with her, and all I want to do is stamp my feet and cry, “I DON’T WANT TO!” Apart from the fact this is not exactly setting a … Read More

The Importance Of Play For Older Children.

Play – it’s not just for littlies! When we think of play, we tend to think of younger children: usually eight or under, playing games of hide and seek and tag, having fun with dolls and cars, going on imaginary adventures, pretending to be pirates or unicorns. It’s true that younger children love these kinds of games. However, play is important for older children, too! In fact, play is important for children – and adults – of all ages. Play is widely recognised as being vital to children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Schools understand this need, especially in … Read More
