Take it Outside

Sometimes, giving a fresh look to familiar toys is as easy as taking it outside and adding some water. Mixing it up a little makes it exciting. This might just be the shortest post I’ve done yet! Just saying.

    They also get excited being able to take their toys outside! It’s a whole new adventure! Being inside is so overrated right! 😉

    Hi, Kelly. I guess at first I have to say that you are so wonderful and secondly sorry my English :( For a while I am following you silently and so curious about your cooking tradition (not especially you, your society I mean). Here, in Turkey we bound ourselves with strict limitations when it is about children food. We cook 3 times in an day, yes even at breakfast. We never gave our children frozen foods or factory-made foods. So we are (mummies) always too tired and too busy for being creative or funny. So if you dont mind can you give some clues about your lifestyle, and thank you in advance.

      Hi Buse

      Isn’t it wonderful that we can connect with people across the world! I’m so glad you’re here. Firstly, I think it’s great that you provide such healthy, non-processed food for your children. This is something I too strive for too. However, for breakfast, my children eat porridge, wheet bix or toast. Lunch is usually a sandwich and dinner is a variety of home cooked meals. I can appreciate where you are coming from in terms of being too tired to be fun. I can relate to that myself. I guess, in many ways with this blog, I’m creating opportunities to be fun with my kids as I live life rather than trying to find more time to be fun, if that makes sense. Rather than doing less, I change the way I think, and this translates into my everyday life. Have a read here and let me know what you think: http://beafunmum.com/about/about-be-a-fun-mum/how-to-be-a-fun-mum/

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Stay in touch.

    Hi Kelly
    Yes, yes creating creative, imaginative play spaces, and rehashing our childrens love for an old toy. love it! My daughter and I like collecting things on our nature walks and then I place them in a basket and my daughter create her own little imaginative play space. Short blog but still a good blog.
