#sponsored Can we talk about the coolest Easter basket items that the girls got this year from @usatoyz? Have you ever seen glow in the dark eggs before? I love that this basket is girly and tech savvy at the same time. There is a drone for Kaila and walkie talkies for the twins. The basket would not be complete without these fun glow in the dark bracelets which the girls love to wear. We are celebrating how big sis Kaila received student of the month for her second time this year. We are so proud of her! Tell us a special moment you shared with your loved ones today in the comments. Be sure to check our stories to see the eggs in action too! #usatoyz
As part of #bookishplay, we took inspiration as literal as buying green beans and cooking green bean soup, just like Ah Bao did with his mom. I have never been a great fan of green bean soup: okay with the soup, not okay with the beans 😬 Since the children are eager to try it, I thought it makes a good opportunity to expand their palate. Green bean soup is said to repel heat and a good source of fibre, protein and vitamins. It is a popular home remedy to reduce body heat in Asian/Chinese families. . . During the process, the kids learned to communicate to the shop keeper what they would like to buy. Back home, while we aren't exactly reading a recipe, we followed the steps as illustrated in the book. The kids took charge and 'read out' the steps to prepare the green bean soup. They helped to wash the beans and fill the pot with water, and WAITED for the soup to be ready. We also froze them into popsicles which makes a really refreshing snack on such warm days. Sometimes the simplest activity makes the most enriching one for the little kids. If you aren't a big fan of cooking (with kids), green bean soup is something simple to prepare with the kids. . . Cooking is a big thing in my family, and the husband and I try to involve the kids whenever we can. I must say that he does a better job with the kids in the kitchen. But why do we cook with our kids? Cooking ✅makes good family bonding ✅encourages sensory exploration ✅is an essential life skill ✅encourages an adventurous palate ✅promotes healthy eating ✅enhances fine motor skills ✅encourages language development ✅improves reading skills ✅introduces scientific and math concepts. . . What are you planning to cook with your kids next? [🍵 Tiffany]
Happy Easter! Our Easter activities looked a bit different for us this year. While we still had an Easter egg hunt, we dyed sand instead of eggs and spent the weekend at the beach instead of church, which was the only downside.
We had a record 88 kids in attendance at our Saddle Up School Holiday Program at Flemington Racecourse on Monday! You can tell by the smiles on their faces that the kids all had a fun-filled day! From learning to ride a horse, to running in the ‘Saddle Up Cup’, the youngsters had a ball!
Happy Easter ✝️ 🐰🐣 💕 We celebrated #easter with my grandparents at @theavenuesteaktavern this evening. It’s one of our go-to spots for special occasions. Excellent food and service and we love the atmosphere. @cmrcolumbus never disappoints! Tonight was a double celebration because we also celebrated my dad’s birthday which is later this week (wait til you see where he picked to go for dinner on his actual birthday!). Swipe to see the kids menu (I asked my parents for Filet Mignon but somehow ended up with a burger and green beans 🤔). Also pictured: my mom’s dinner (beef stroganoff), my dad’s (rib eye with brussel sprouts), and my dad’s complimentary birthday dessert that he got to pick from the dessert menu (hot fudge sundae which of course is no ordinary sundae because it has a Cameron Mitchell spin 🍨 ). I hope you had a wonderful Easter, too!
Give your kids something to play with after the hunt is over with Gak Filled Eggs! Please visit our blog for the details. Link to blog in profile: https://kidsactivitiesblog.com/83383/gak-filled-easter-eggs/
|| using nature’s paper as our canvas || . . Miss V could paint all day, every day. She is so meticulous with her application, carefully dipping the paint, wiping it on the edge of the pot, washing and wiping the brush, the whole process is just right up her alley. It also keeps her occupied for hours so I’m all for it 👌🏽👏🏼!! . . We found some big strips of paperbark at the park and as Miss V has got me into hoarding random bits of nature, I thought we’d add it to our collection. Yes, I’m that weirdo at the park picking things up off the ground and shoving them in my bag 😳🤪. . . Anyway today, just for something different, Miss V painted her masterpieces on the paperbark and they came out so pretty 😍. Next step will be working out how we can display them 😊! . . #natureplay#artandnature#toddlerart#sensoryplay#learningthroughplay#naturalresources#messyplay#kidsactivities#toddleractivities#artideasforkids#naturescanvas
Twin Falls Circuit 🍃 This has got to be one of the coolest walks we have been on in a while. There are caves to walk through during the walk and you get to walk behind the waterfall 🤗 This is supposed to be a 4km walk but it certainly didnt feel like it due to the many fun things to see along the trail.
