Free, fun and educational activities to do with children when stuck indoors

Noah Leapfrog

Feeling confused with what to do if the schools close down due to Corona virus? Well you aren’t the only one! At the moment things not just in Australia but throughout the world are feeling a little bit scary and confusing.

As I write this schools in Australia are still open but many parents are choosing to self-isolate and I don’t think it will be much longer until they actually close.

As a potential school shut down looms to slow the spread of the Corona Virus, I wanted to  compile a handy list of free, fun and educational activities of what I’ve seen being shared around and share it with you in one place for your reference!

If you have any other suggestions or ideas what to do during the potential corona virus self-isolation, please leave them below in the comments for everyone else to read or send me a message and I will keep adding to this list.

I’ve also found this handy resource to explain in very simple language to school children about the Corona virus.

Britex DIY Carpet Cleaning Machine Review

Carpet cleaning

Moving house has to be one of the most stressful and expensive things you can do, so a couple of months ago we moved interstate with two young kids and boy was it fun!!

When we moved into our new home, we had a budget for things that we knew would need doing immediately as a priority. But after living in the house for a few weeks we started finding little issues, cue dishwasher breaking (totally didn’t budget for that!) the blinds all collapsed after opening and other little bits and bobs that soon saw our small pool of money for doing things disappear faster than you can say money doesn’t grow on trees.

Because we don’t have the money to replace all the things when we moved (need to stop looking on Pinterest it’s dangerous lol), I’ve been looking at budget friendly ways to improve our new home.

Now let’s talk about Carpets…..

The carpets at our new house don’t look in too bad condition (current situation: may have toddler and dog wee throughout!), but if you’re anything like me you want to make a house your home and if you can’t afford to replace your carpets, hiring a Britex Carpet Cleaner is the perfect and affordable way to clean and freshen up your carpets.

I’ve been given a selection of Britex Extra finish range of products to try around our home, which include the Spot n’ Stain, Odour Blaster and Urine Remover.

Britex Carpet Cleaning

Yes I could get someone to professionally clean my carpets, but from an affordability perspective these services often come at a premium price and there are often hidden charges or extras that soon add up. The Britex cleaning machine was voted by Choice as the number 1 carpet shampooer and is engineered with commercial- grade parts to ensure a professional cleaning result!

The machine is really simple to set-up and not too heavy to use. If you get stuck, there are a ton of instructional videos and how to guides on the Britex website to guide you through the entire process, or you can even call their helpline which is available 7 days a week for assistance – can’t get much easier than that.

All the products are safe to use and I’ve tipped out the water used after cleaning the carpets in the garden! Check out my instagram post that shows how dirty the water tank was after just doing one room!!

Have you cleaned your own carpet before?

The Britex Machine can be hired from Bunnings Warehouse, Woolworths and Selected Coles, IGA and Mitre 10 stories.

Tips for moving with kids

Packing up and moving houses can made so much harder with young kids running around, making a mess and even unpacking boxes you’ve just packed. When moving with our little bubs there are a lot of things we don’t consider before beginning to pack. Some of us mums just don’t have enough time to care for our children AND move house at the same time – we’re great multitaskers but THAT is just too much.

 

So, I’ve put together a few tips on how to make the move swift, easy and as manageable as possible with kids:

 

1.         If you can’t find the time to both pack and manage the kids, you have two options; firstly you can get help from family and/or friends to look after the kids so that they’re not in the way and unpacking boxes as you’re trying to pack them. Your second option is hiring packing services like Hire A Packer who will swiftly pack your belongings while you keep the kids out of their way

 

2.        Building on the first tip, it is best to get the majority of the packing done whilst the kids are; asleep, at school, at day care or just away from the house in general (it’s a rarity, I know). This is because kids often have a hard time trying to understand why their toys are getting put away, or why their entire bedroom is disappearing. Getting their toys packed up quickly without the kids noticing is KEY to getting it done swiftly.

 

3.         Treat the move as a positive and fun adventure as a way to help children understand why you’re moving and that they don’t need to get upset about the situation.

 

4.        Get other mums opinions. Get on Facebook or any online mums’ groups and ask for their advice. A lot of people have been through this exact thing and many of them are always willing to help!

 

5.        Get them a house warming gift. If the little ones can associate a new toy or another positive feeling/memory with the new house, then they will be more open to the new house being a home.

 

6.        Say goodbye to the old house. Saying goodbye is a very touching moment but it also helps the young ones understand that it’s no longer their home and that the new place will be filled with just as many, if not more, amazing memories.

 

7.         RELAX!

Leapfrog Toy Review + Giveaway

I have to admit, poor Noah has second child syndrome.  I’m just putting it out there that I may have never bought Noah a new toy….oops!

With there being four years age difference between the kids we have a lot of toys already which we have looked after and that Noah has been enjoying.

So you could say that I’m a little out of the loop on what toys are new to the market for a child his age!

I was recently sent two LeapFrog toys for Noah to have a play and review.  If you read on you can learn all about them and be in the running to win them for yourselves!

My First Scout and Violet Books RRP $24.95My First Scout Book

This toy is suitable for babies from 3 months.

Each page of this touch-and-feel book is so cute!  There’s a shiny pond, crinkly flower, peek-a-boo flap and baby-safe mirror.  If you press the music note button you will hear a sweet welcome song and four sing-along songs that introduce your child to numbers, letters, colours and shapes.

You can then explore further learning on each page by pressing the 123, Shapes, ABC and Colour tabs to hear songs, sounds and learning phrases.  Little hands can also grasp the handle to take with them!

Scout’s and Violet’s Learning Lights Remote RRP $16.95

This toy is suitable for infants from 6 months old.

scouts learning remote

Noah loves our remote control and I’m sure you can relate that most kids seem to make a beeline for the remote!  Well now he has his own one that’s super cool!

It has a light-up screen, a ton of different buttons a French language channel and two modes of play.  The remote assists children with early learning concepts as they pretend play.

The remote has more than 65 songs, tunes and learning responses. You can toggle up, down, left or right to play a shapes game or count along.  You child can also learn simple French words to help shapes in the garden.

For more information about these toys and others check:

Micro Scooter Review

Micro Scooter Sprite

Hands up if your child is scooter crazy!!  From a young age Grace has always loved to go scootering anywhere and everywhere.

A couple of years ago my Mum started her off on her scootering journey with a mini micro deluxe as a Christmas present.  Over time, she’s got taller (much taller) and more confident in her adventures.  We realised it was time to get the next size up and Gracie was also adamant that she now wanted a scooter with two wheels as she’s ‘grown-up now.’

So I’ve teamed up with Micro Scooters to share with you the adventures that Gracie has been having with her new Sprite special edition scooter and all the fab features it has.

I love the fact it’s lightweight, so it’s easy for Gracie to pick up and carry if need be.  One of the other features that I love the most is that it’s foldable!  I can’t tell you how many times we’ve got to the park and ended up having to carry her scooter and push the pram around.  The Micro Sprite has an easy folding action,  so I’m actually able to pop under Noah’s pram or even hook on the handlebars of the pram if Gracie decides she’s had enough of scootering.

Micro Scooter Folding

It also has a handy kickstand, so it can be propped up once we get to the park and she wants to play on something else.

Gracie’s previous scooter, the mini micro deluxe lasted her for years and is still in good condition, I’m actually saving it for Noah!  The Micro sprite is from 5 years plus to adult, considering how sturdy it is, it’s incredible value.

Do your kids love to scooter? Check out the full range of Micro Scooters here.

Make sure you head to my Instagram page to be in for the chance to win yourself one of the Scooters!!

Please note this Scooter was gifted but all opinions are of my own.

Noah’s Food Journey so far

Baby Bellies Organic snacks

I’ve touched on it before, but I’m afraid to admit that Gracie is a seriously fussy eater.  Due to the journey we have been through with her gut health issues and food intolerances, it meant that we had to restrict certain foods for a couple of years and I’m convinced that this has played a huge factor in how hesitant she can be.  I was also too nervous to go down the Baby Led weaning avenue the first time around.

I had in my mind that when Noah was ready for solids that I would do things slightly differently and that I wanted to try and take a more Baby Led weaning approach to his eating.  He’s now ten months old and apart from when he’s teething (he has had periods of time when he isn’t as keen to eat food) he is actually a really good eater and is pretty adventurous.  I’m planning on keeping it this way and I’m hoping over time that he will actually encourage Gracie to be open to eating new foods.

I’m no expert, just a Mum doing her thing but this is what I’ve found has worked successfully for me so far with Noah and introducing solids.

My tips:

– Every time I feed Noah I sit and eat with him.  Not only does this mean this Mamma gets some time to eat, it also helps encourage him to eat.

– If it’s food that needs to be given on a spoon, I try not to spoon feed him, I pass him the spoon to feed himself. He now doesn’t like me helping and will happily grab the spoon off me and feed himself.

– With meals that require a spoon, I also try and give him a finger food to eat alongside this meal so he can play, explore and practise his pincer grasp

– I try and give him different textures each meal to keep exposing him to different types of foods

– As the months have progressed on our journey so has the shapes of food I have given him.

– I don’t worry when some meals he eats a lot and some meals he hardly eats much at all.  Even if he doesn’t eat much he’s still being exposed to different foods, playing and learning.

Baby Bellies Organic Snacks

Baby Bellies have a large range of organic snack options from 6 months onwards

I’ve been buying Little Bellies, which are a range of organic baby and toddler snacks since I got a packet in a subscription box a few months ago and Noah absolutely loves them! I’ve been using them to encourage him to play and explore with his food, especially during meals that require a spoon and of course they’re great for baby snack times!   I love that the range is organic and I don’t have to worry about the ingredients, but what I find unique about the products is the sheer variety between the ages. There’s different shapes for different stages of development – so perfect for little fingers, as well as an array of flavours. Another bonus is the fact that they dissolve in the mouth, which has put my mind at ease that he if he was to struggle it’s very unlikely he would choke.

What are your top tips for encouraging your babies to eat solids?

Birde – Smart media player for kids

I don’t know about you guys but I’m always looking for ways to reduce Gracie’s screen/tech time.  Unfortunately with the world we’re living in today our children are very much growing up in a digital age.

So when I was approached by Birde to review their interactive media player I jumped at the chance.

Birde Media Player

Birde was created by two Aussie parents who were looking for a positive way for toddlers and preschoolers to learn without needing a screen, keyboard, mouse or remote control.

Birde includes a high quality speaker that can be paired with a compatible smart TV or used on it’s own.  The content includes music, audiobooks and videos.

Not only does Birde look super cool, it’s also wireless and has more than 8 hours of battery life before needing to be recharged (great for taking out on road trips!), it’s also waterproof, washable and if it gets dropped no issues because  it’s been made to withstand little hands!

Birde Media Player

We received a lovely starter pack (worth $60) which includes music, audiobooks and videos + a bonus Funky Chicken Seed Pack (valued at $14.95).  You are able to purchase more of the seeds via the app or purchasing Birde Seeds.

Gracie absolutely loves the fact that she can control the function, she’s not stopped playing with it since we got it and Noah has been joining in to have a little bop with her and I don’t have to worry about it breaking!!

 

 

Birde have kindly given my community $100 off a Birde Bundle.  The code is: MEL100 and expires 30th April 2019

Coles Back To School Lunchboxes and Accessories Review

I hope the first few weeks have gone smoothly for everyone and for the families who’s kids are starting school they’ve transitioned well.  Gracie is absolutely loving Pre-School, she’s settled in well and says she only misses me a little bit 🙁

With starting school comes all the fun of working out what lunchbox and drink bottle would be suitable for your child! I don’t know about you, but I actually find this whole process a headache in itself!  I tend to be an over-packer when it comes to food and I find some of the lunchboxes look way too small and Gracie would be complaining about being hungry!  I do not want a HANGRY Gracie at all costs ha!

Smash have set me an array of lunchboxes, bottles and cool bags for me to review and share my thoughts with, all these products you can purchase at Coles.

The two lunchboxes I was sent were the Bento Switch-up and Bento Bite 

The Bento Bite:

  • Has six sections which are spill proofBag and Bento Bite
  • Removable custom ice brick
  • Removable inner tray
  • Removable leak proof Snack Pot

Gracie loved the look of this lunchbox, especially with its funky colours.  From a mum perspective I find it slightly stiff to open and close – however this could loosen up with use.  I also found it overall to be a slightly heavier/bulkier lunchbox, so might not be as suitable for much younger children.

 

 

 

Bento Switch-up

  • Has removable and adjustable dividers to create 2,3 or 4 compartments.
  • Has a funky Cool Skin base that protects the box
  • Two silicone edged dividers

I have to say out of the two this was my favourite, I love the look of it and I thought it was the perfect size for Gracie lunch.  I also thought this would be a great size lunchbox for a parent to take to work as well.

Bento Switch-up

Bottles:

Glitter Bottle

Both Gracie and I loved this bottle as who doesn’t love a bit of bling.  On a practical note, Gracie felt that it was too heavy for her before it held the water, which I agree with.  I feel this bottle would be suitable for an older child or for a Mum like me who loves sparkle!

Glow Bottle

A bottle that Glows in the dark for up to 6 hours!!  This one definitely got Gracie’s attention.

  • Twin wall insulated featuring fashion prints with GLOW IN THE DARK technology. Glows for up to 6 hours!
  • It’s lightweight and squeezable for fast hydration with a wide opening for easy cleaning.
  • Illumination provides comfort and helps children locate water in the night.
  • Perfect 420ml size

 

 

Selection of cool bags

I received a colourful array of cool bags, I love that each one has their ‘Blue IQ’ antimicrobial lining which inhibits the growth of uncontrolled bacteria, mould, and mildew.  My pick of the bunch that I was sent has to be The Fridge.

The Fridge cool bag keeps lunchboxes cool for up to seven hours.  It has 2 large removable gel ice, so you can pop them in your freezer! It’s designed to fit the Bento Bite, The Bento Switch Up and the Rubbish Free Lunch Box.

 

 

 

Overall a great selection at a reasonable priced and all can be purchased at Coles.

Our Pre-School Journey

Gracie ready for school

The time is fast approaching, my baby girl who’s been my shadow for over 4.5 years is starting her educational journey and starting Pre-School at the beginning of February.  I’m super relieved that she got into our first choice as its a relatively small place and very nurturing.

We have a busy couple of weeks, with a parents evening to go through everything one more time and the chance to meet other parents whose kids are starting at the same time as well as a final playdate before she officially starts.

I’m feeling slightly flappy and emotional as my husband will be overseas for this period of time! I’m also feeling nervous about getting there on time and juggling with baby Noah needing his first nap around the same-time we need to be in the car etc…I have a feeling I will be doing lots of car naps in the first couple of months!

Because she’s never been in any form of care I’ve had to get a few bits to ensure a smooth transition which I wanted to share with you guys, plus I’ve been given some discount codes to share with you all!

PlanetBox Rover and Thermos FUNtainer

The PlanetBox Rover has pretty much been on my wish list for the past few years for Gracie.  I know quite a few people that have had theirs for years and it’s looking just as good, which was a huge plus for me.

Planetbox Rover

It is a more expensive box than the others on the market, but it’s 100% Stainless Steel and no chance of Gracie loosing the lid as it’s attached.

Gracie already has a Thermos FUNTainer and loves it.  It has a handy handle, spill proof and is double walled so keeps drinks cooler for longer.

Lunchpunch do a cute range of sandwich cutters to jazz up your kids sandwiches and do little stix, which I like popping fruit and veggies on.
