Southern Yorke Peninsula Water Tower Mural Trail

Did you know the Southern Yorke Peninsula has a Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail? Next time you are heading to Yorkes, make sure to schedule in a drive by. If you are not, well, maybe you should be, it is a comfortable two and a half hour drive from Adelaide.

Make Your Own Car Shelf

Making and building things with your kids (or lets face is ‘for’ your kids, because they often bail half way through) is rewarding and fun. We recently found a version of this ‘hot wheels’ style shelf on Pinterest and thought we would give it a go. Not only was it easy, and fun, it was quick and the job was done for under $50. It’s a great gift idea or just an excuse for a trip to Bunnings and to spend an hour in...

Make your own face masks

This week we found a fantastic little project page through Spotlight (you can find the link here) where you can make your own face masks. Thankfully here in SA it isn’t quite mandatory to wear masks due to Covid-19 like it is elsewhere, but it may be worth preparing just in case and this seemed a cool way to get the kids involved and hopefully make something they will wear! Spotlight’s page have some fantastic tutorials and...

Autumn Craft Ideas

The leaves are beginning to slowly change colour, which can mean only one thing, autumn is on it’s way! Autumn is the season of colour, and by far my favourite.

These activities have been created with young children and preschoolers in mind, but they’re equally as satisfying for older age groups too (ahem, even really big...

Mindfulness in Art – Part One

As the warmer weather is approaching and we are able to enjoy our parks and beaches again I want to explore two of my favourite things…art and mindfulness! We can create art anywhere! It is such a great medium to allow us to be ‘present’ or ‘in the moment’ as we are thinking and concentrating on creating, allowing the pace of the world to just slow down. So welcome to the first part of Mindfulness in Art! Nature Mandalas A Mandala is a Sanskrit...
