🍃Eucalyptus Mud Pie

🍃There are over 850 types of Eucalypt native to Australia and we are lucky to have a couple in our yard.

🍃Playing along with @gdayandplay for #nationaleucalyptday we gathered some fallen gum tree leaves, nuts & flower pods as ingredients for a “mud” pie.

🥣I made up our @muddly_puddly sand playdough powder from @biglittleandco to use as our pie base - it’s all natural & slightly grainy feel made it perfect for nature play.
I added a few drops of eucalyptus oil to add to the sensory experience.

🍃Little Bro explored with his fingers and poked things into the dough then asked me to make balls so he could squish them with the gum nuts (appetizers for our pie perhaps?!)

🎨 Painting a rainbow

Water colours are not something we’ve done a lot of before, I’m not really sure why because these were so beautiful 🥰

Big Bro sang the rainbow song to work out which order to paint the colours (which always confuses me…as it’s really not an order you see anywhere else 😂!)

We also discovered the lid makes a great colour mixing palette when we needed to make purple 🙌🏻

🎨 Little Bro had a tricky time getting the whole order of - water - paint - paper- so his water often ended up with paint straight back in it without making it onto the paper! 🙈 But he had fun and was just happy to be doing what his brother was doing 🥰

🎨Paints and affirmation cards available at @biglittleandco use code: OCP10 for a sneaky discount!

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory”
-Dr Seuss

This moment only lasted a few seconds (because boys!) but I’m so glad I took some pics to remember this stage.
It was not particularly memorable at the time - waiting for Santa on the fire truck to drive past - who barely slowed down unlike the years before 😢

But it’s now one of my fave snaps and is my phone background, so I can look at it and dream of them sitting still more 😂

Isn’t it funny how certain small events become permanent memories?

💚 Is it just me or are your kids a vault after school when you try and find out about their day?

🧡There’s a lot going on when they’re just starting out at primary school, so little prompts like these can be really helpful to initiate conversations that may not flow naturally with the traditional “what did you do today?” question.

💛I let Big Bro pick a card and it sparked a conversation about the orange monkey bars he saw, and how the year 1’s in his class have a separate playground to his pre-primary classmates.

💙These are part of the @twolittleducklings Kids Wellbeing & Affirmation Cards from @biglittleandco - our rep code OCP10 will give you a lovely discount too 😉

🎂We have a 5 year old in the house! 🥳

🧁Between a stacking rainbow cake, Bookywoo felt cake, school cupcakes and a cake at home…it was very sweet for Big Bro!
(And there’s still party cake to come on the weekend 😂)

🍰Check out the link in my bio for discount codes for these two (none for real cake sorry 😝)

🎨Hey Doodle Mini Mat - here to help Mums drink their coffee warm! 🙌🏻

This mini mat lives in my handbag now, & is sooo handy to keep the little ones happy when you haven’t quite finished your coffee (anyone else a slow drinker?!)

🚒Little Bro wanted a “rainbow fire truck like Daddy’s” (it’s currently got a rainbow on from recent pride celebrations) so that’s what we did.

This one came from @biglittleandco - OCP10 will give you a lovely discount 🙌🏻

🌈 Easy colour sort activity

Little Bro is allll about colours at the moment, naming & sorting over and over.

We used our fidget popper as a base to sort our @joguines_grapat marbles, the only obstacle was what to do with the extra ones that wouldn’t fit in their colour row…he solved this problem by finding a spare hole (non-colour matching which made me more uneasy than it should 😂)

🍂Native flora and fauna tray

Every element on and including this tray has been made in Australia - except the plastic animals, ironically - but purchased from a local stockist. (Maybe we need to invest in some locally made wooden Australian animals 🤔)

🍂It’s so important to us to choose local businesses where there’s an option, especially in times like these.

🍂We’re very lucky to have such beautiful natural resources to play with too, from the salvaged branches that become @onceatree.au ‘s products to those bits we can grab ourselves from outside.

🦅Black cockatoos are feasting on our big marri tree at the moment leaving our driveway covered in half chewed honkey nuts (not fun to drive over 🥴) but also small branches like these still with beautiful blossoms on 🌸

🐊Little Bro enjoyed a quick matching game with the dough stampers (I’ll put a cute video in stories - calling the emu a flamingo!🥰) before going to get his stuffed crocodile to match to the small version - swipe to the last pic 😍

🥳That amazing feeling when you wake up after an undisturbed nights sleep! 🥳

You’d think it would be Little Bro (2) waking through the night still, but no - Big Bro (4) has been coming into our bed e v e r y night for months, stealing my pillow and kicking legs into my back all night long. There’s really not enough room in our queen bed 😒

But hopefully our persistence taking him back to his bed this last couple of weeks is finally paying off - no visits until 6:15am this morning! 🥳🥳🥳

🌈Flashback to our rainbow sensory puzzle to mark this happy occasion!

🍋DIY toilet fizzies

I had a few requests after sharing these in my stories the other day so here is the recipe I use!
Remember not to over wet the mixture like I did or they will start to react in the molds 🤦🏼‍♀️😂
Just enough to hold when smooshed together (that’s a word right?!)

🍋1 & 1/3 cups bicarb soda
🍋1/2 cup citric acid
🍋30 drops lemon essential oil (or whatever oil you like - but lemon is good for cleaning)
🍋Water spray bottle to just wet the mixture enough to stick together
🍋Pack into ice cube molds till dry
(12-24 hrs depending on your weather)

🍋Pop one in the toilet bowl each day to keep fresh between cleans!

I keep mine up on the window ledge as Big Bro would probably put them all in if he had access - we love our fizzy play but that’s a bit far 😂

🍋Let me know what you think! They definitely help here.

🌟Christmas Eve

Possibly my favourite day of the year - so much excitement and anticipation for Christmas Day!

Christmas carols on repeat, wrapping presents, and baking (if we get time!)

Wishing your family a Merry Christmas from ours - be safe, enjoy some downtime with loved ones and say yes to that extra serving of pavlova!

☕️Elf’s hot chocolate🧝🏼

Hot chocolate, marshmallows, candy canes, sprinkles and gingerbread - this is an elf’s staple diet right?!

To quote Big Bro; “This is the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted in the whole wide world!” 🤣🥰

Major Mum points today…but bracing for the sugar crash later 😬

🦌Muck out the reindeer’s stall

I knew I’d instantly have Mr 2’s attention with the mention of reindeer poo 🙊🤣

He loves a good rice tray but adding the crystals which are his fave at the moment just topped it off.

He scooped them all out into the “bin” then decided he needed a loader to handle that many droppings 😂

Our sensory rice is from @_gooddoughco - brown is not a colour I’ve been a able to master so very happy Sam had this one available in the Christmas range! (OCP15 for a discount)

Only 5 sleeps till Christmas Day! (I wouldn’t mind if the reindeer leave some of these droppings on our lawn 😜)
