Need time and space? So do your kids!

Ah, space. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I’m an introvert, so people who know me understand just how important my space is to me. Especially the neighbours, who regularly hear my hollers of “I JUST NEED SOME SPACE!!!!!!!” when my daughter has perched herself on my shoulders, spilt her smoothie all over me or refused to detach herself from my leg while I’m trying to do (insert any kind of activity you can think of here) one too many times. It seems kids have no concept of time or space. But did you know these two … Read More

Playing it safe: Have we gone too far?

We have a huge flame tree in the middle of our backyard. It is the perfect climbing tree. My five-year-old daughter often perches herself up there, pretending she’s a monkey or looking at the birds through her pink binoculars. Visitors freak out when they see her in the tree. They are terrified she will fall. I, too, sometimes worry about her falling – but I have never vocalised this worry to her, and she has never fallen. But every time someone exclaims, “Oh my goodness, be careful!”, her confidence nosedives. Suddenly, she needs help climbing out of the tree and … Read More

Six outdoor Easter activities for kids

There’s no denying it. No matter what Easter means to you, one thing unites us all: CHOCOLATE! Unless, of course, you are Gwyneth Paltrow or the 0.00005% of people on Earth who genuinely do not like chocolate. Yes, it’s a four-day chocolate egg fest full of sugar highs and many, many lows. But, believe it or not, there are activities you can do besides scoffing chocolate on Easter weekend. Here are some outdoor Easter activities to entertain the kids, and even some of the big kids. Minimal equipment is required and for some games all you need are some eggs … Read More

Why cubbies are the perfect adventure playground

Those cushions on the floor? They’re not cushions. They’re the big leathery bumps on the back of a humongous crocodile, ready to gobble you up if you don’t run across it to get to the other side of the swamp. Your favourite books strewn down the hallway? They’re not books. They’re wobbly stepping stones across a heaving sea of fiery lava – your only way to the safety of your magical golden castle. The skipping ropes you just tripped over? They’re not skipping ropes. They’re boa constrictors guarding the door to the secret jungle kingdom, ready to lunge if you … Read More

Cubby house “makeovers” for imaginative play

Kids love imaginative play. In fact, so do adults. As a responsible adult, I often use my imagination – to pretend I’m lounging beside a pool, reading a book and sipping a cold drink, atop a mountain so high (yet, amazingly, the weather is wonderfully warm) that no one, not even the late Edmund Hillary, could climb to the top and make annoying and perplexing demands of me, such as:  “Hey Mum! You pretend you’re Mum and I’ll pretend I’m a cat!” Imaginative play is essential to children’s learning. It’s how they make sense of the world. They learn social, relationship, … Read More
