Kidloland has the most amazing app with multiple different educational games that is really worth it to join at least for a few months. I wrote about it HERE!
So they also brought out a coding app which is really great. My 5 year olds find it fun but also challenging. There’s a few free games within the app to try out as well as a free game of the day so download the game to give it a try!
Check out the video below for a preview.Read the rest of this entry

It’s human nature to remember the bad more vividly than the good – it’s how we evolved to make sure we stayed safe – by remembering those negative experiences vividly so that we could avoid them in the future.
However, with the advent of massive connectivity, negativity now surrounds us from every direction….and it’s pervasive. Turn on the television, tune into social media, or pick up a paper and you’ll typically be bombarded with negativity.Read the rest of this entry
I wrote this post about Decluttering your brain way back when and also this one about Dealing with Toy Overload, but honestly I am still figuring out how to declutter my life! Being the little crafter that I am, I keep almost everything because I constantly think I should be able to do something with it.
Well I have a whole new schedule planned so I am getting to the end of this madness…Read the rest of this entry
I have to admit, that first morning after I wrote this post I woke up thinking’ “What have I done? Why did I do that?” I had a feeling of impending doom… like failure was sure to follow, but now, 6 days later I am still hanging on so I guess I’m really doing this!
So there was a few things that really dragged me down and I knew those things would have to be addressed first.
What did I change…Read the rest of this entry
Surprise surprise, theres more! Enjoy this Ninjago Sticker chart!Read the rest of this entry
Oh yes we are still doing the sticker chart thing and we even pay money these days at the end of it… well it all gets saved so I guess we are at a good spot there. I am not proud of the fact that we use sticker charts to get the kids to do things but its just so much less effort… I know I know its terrible. So if you want to be terrible with me, heres a chart for the Spy Sqad!Read the rest of this entry
Even just thinking of words to start this post is hard. The truth is what I am about to start is exposing me in so many ways…
I may fail at this but I refuse to not do it because I am afraid of failure. I have failed so many times in my life I can’t even count, but it doesn’t mean it will stop me from trying again… I am one tough cookie, I can give myself that one!
So the truth is even though it always looks like things are going so well and I am always looking good on photos (because I am taking photos for the blog from the neck up only), is that I am actually really gettingRead the rest of this entry
This one is a great project for the homeschoolers and also great fun for all kids and young-at-heart adults who love drawing cartoons or anything for that matter! Sketching is one of the things I love to do in my free time and now with one of the wonderful Apps Apple brought us, called “Paper by 53”, it has become so much easier and quicker to create a work of art on the fly. All your palettes, pencils and erasers are right there in one place so it doesn’t take so much time to set up and pack away a whole art set.Read the rest of this entry
I am so excited to share my Etsy Shop that I have re-opened with you. To celebrate, I made a printable Coloring Calendar yay!

We were not familiar with Lost Kitties or even Littlest Pet shop when we received these cute little gifts in pretend milk cartons from Hasbro. My kids loved them though and I think there will be some more collecting in days to come… oh boy! You can buy them at Toys R Us, ToyZone, Toy Kingdom, Hamleys, Takealot and other major retailers. Please click on the video below to see the cute little babies and subscribe to my channel for updates! Read the rest of this entry
It’s not often that we fly these days, so I was a little rusty on what to do with my kids when we recently went on a flight to Johannesburg. Thinking about what to bring or how to prepare for a flight can be stressful, so I compiled this list with my tips for flying with children. Read the rest of this entry
We did a study on All About ME so I made these printables to go with it. we had so much fun, theres two different ways that we made them, like this… Read the rest of this entry
We all have things we will never forget that our kids had said at some stage… I personally write everything down in my notes and even copy them to a little special book that I will show them when they are older. It’s something you just don’t want to miss as a parent, but as adults we all can appreciate the funny things these little creatures come up with.
I have asked Moms from groups combining around 200 000 members all across South Africa, what were the funniest things their kids said and they did not disappoint! Here are some of my favourites! Read the rest of this entry

I have to be honest, when I received this kit in the post I was a little nervous. You see, I am not the best baker… as in NOT GOOD! My first reaction upon lifting the package was that it was a really heavy kit… score points number one. Opening it was even more of a surprise… Read the rest of this entry
