When was the last time you all turned off the TV, put down all those tech gadgets and piled around the dining table for a fun traditional Family Games Night!? Maybe it is already a regular event at your place, or it is still on your list of things to do. We try to have a games night every second weekend – our little miss 7 loves it! Although she doesn’t love it when little miss 20 months keep pulling the game off the table and throwing the parts around the room.. It’s all part of the fun, right?
Winter is dragging on, the evenings are cold and summer feels like a lifetime away! When the weather and daylight are not on your side, and the kids have too much time on their hands, it can be a struggle to keep everybody off those pesky screens. Zombie kids are all too common these days, and although peace and quiet has its upsides, nothing gets everybody laughing and learning, and the time flying by, like an old school games night.
We’ve put together a list of 5 fast and fun games that are guaranteed to zap a bit of life back into all the family- from tiny tots to teenagers, grades 3 to 103, and no WiFi required!
What a FUN craft for the cooler months – Autumn/Fall and Winter. Our favourite part was collecting the leaves- trudging through big piles of crunchy fallen leaves throwing them all about whilst looking for the perfect ones to paint!
A great combination – a nature-based activity, outside play, and kids craft all in one.
Do you love to sew? Yes, I hear you say! Do you love to sew for your kids? Absolutely! Well then you have to have a peek inside the latest issue of One Thimble magazine– it’s choc-full of fun, hip preppy sewing projects to dress both boys and girls in style!

Do you follow the adventures of the Handmade Cooperative? You should- especially if you love all things handmade like we do! The Handmade Cooperative is a group of creative independent businesses working together to promote and share the love of all things handmade for KIDS (with goodies for the rest of the family and the house thrown in too).
I went on a mission to find out what the Coop has been creating this winter to keep our little ones warm! And here is just some of the wonderful wintry handmade creations they have been cooking up this season.
