My favorite game to play with the girls, “Walk on mommy’s back!” They cover me with blankets, pack stuffed animals around me and I *kind of* get a massage. 🙌🏻Minimal effort on my part and they love it! 💕 #momhack #lazyday #screenfree #play

Some people eat Girl Scout cookies, we count them 🤣! Play now, eat later. One of our easiest activities in The Ready Kit using the beautiful number flash cards. We don’t believe in drill and practice (e.g. showing a number and asking what it is or just rote reciting number names). We believe in playful, meaningful, and motivating (hello, COOKIES) activities. So grab your Ready Kit number cards and get busy counting! #screenfree #screenfreekids #screenfreeactivities #busybook #thereadykit #unschooling #preschool #girlscoutcookies #thinmints #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoolcollective

My daughter is mad on puppets! So, we spent a bit of time over the weekend making these very easy finger puppets. I drew outlines for her to colour in & cut out (hello scissor practice!). We’ve been talking about emotions lately, so these are her sad and scared puppets. She then gave us a little puppet show. I’ll have to video her next show, for our stories.

A new study from MIT on the importance of conversation and why screen media and digital devices are such a poor substitute for parents and caregivers when it comes to brain development. 
More than 20 years ago, researchers found that on average, children in low-income households hear 30 million fewer words than children in high-income households by the time they’re 3 years old. This word-gap led many to focus on the quantity of words young children hear and even suggest that watching television and videos could be good for brain development by exposing kids to language.

But researchers at MIT used brain imaging studies to determine it’s not the quantity of words that matter, it’s the quality. Back-and-forth conversation conversations are the most effective way to stimulate young children’s brains. And when it comes to real conversations, no app or Amazon Alexa can compete with a caring adult.

After a great talk on Fasting this morning from church I felt the spirit leading me to a screen fast by not using my phone or laptop between. 9pm and 6am. It’s only small, but my first fast! Going to be document it on my journal to keep me motivated! #screenfast #screenfree #fasting

Friday is library day for our family. Nina gets a book from school and I take Nick to our local library to get 10 or so more. The books all live on our coffee table and I know if it’s quiet in the lounge room they are most likely curled up reading.
.
I’m trying to expand on each book we read with some sort of artsy crafty project, even if it’s something as simple as: “Draw your own monster!”
.
Nicky is still at the scribble stage (which I love), but Nina puts so much thought and energy into each little project. I have heart eyes over this monster she drew and have plans print it onto a t-shirt.

No, you aren’t looking at extras from a Tim Burton movie 😂...these mannequins were designed with love and creativity by some of our #TLSjuniorassociates! They called them “besties” ☺️ and we think it’s the cutest thing ever.

Kindness, where do I even begin? On a local mom group FB group there was chatter about the difficulties with social skills. Things like handing party favors out to certain friends ONLY (at a party) while others got a subset of different “favors”, removing kids from group chats, the list goes. Most voiced that it all comes from the parents and it starts in the home. Of course this is true and we need to lead by example, but there’s something that I think is missing. It’s directly and explicitly teaching these things! Our children need to be taught through more than just modeling. It takes roughly 40 exposures of an academic concept, for a student to “learn” lets say, how to add. The same number of exposures is true for kindness, caring, empathy, and social skills! Let’s continue to lead by example by seeking out ways to creatively teach kindness every day in our homes. Talk about it, make up scenarios, and move beyond just saying, “Be kind.” That’s not enough. With all that is happening in the world, we need to do more, and we cannot wait. Start as soon as you can, don’t wait for a magic age. 
Here we are doing our Kindness Bingo and our newest addition to the family, the sibling get-along chips! While I’d love for this to be a totally shameless plug for The Ready Kit, I 100% have a zero tolerance policy of unkind behavior.  I have ONE rule in my house and it is posted on our fridge. “Be kind. No exceptions.” You don’t have to be friends with everyone, but you must be nice. I am sharing what I use (included in The Ready Kit) because I believe in it and it works. The Ready Kit is for ages 2-99! 2-7 academics 8-99 implementers 😘 It is for getting socially emotionally ready and academically “ready” for those precious primary years of school. 
Do you all see these issues where you live? Do you let your 10,11,12 aged child (and up)have access to smart phones with social media?

Sticks and water - a combination that never gets old.😊 At ages 7 and 10, I’m grateful that my kids still play with such ease and vivid imagination outside. Even though I have to coax them to go outside sometimes, I rarely need to activate them once we’re out there. They can usually find something to do on their own and if they don’t they just make something up. This is a goal that I’ve had ever since I became a parent.
🌿
I think it’s important for us parents to recognize that we don’t have to be camp counselors for our kids and constantly come up with games and activities for them. All we really need to do is take them outside from an early age and make sure they have the opportunity to explore and play freely in nature. Trust your instincts and rest assured that it’s OK to do less; in fact it’s a boon to your kids’ imagination to let them come up with their own fun. Better yet, you’ll never have to hear the complaint “I’m boooooored”! 🌿
How do you encourage your kids to play outside independently? .

Trust your instincts and rest assured that it’s OK to do less; in fact it’s a boon to your kids’ imagination to let them come up with their own fun. Better yet, you’ll never have to hear the complaint “I’m boooooored”! 🌿 How do you encourage your kids to play outside independently? . . . #theresnosuchthingasbadweather  #rainorshinemamma  #optoutside  #outdoorfamilies  #outfam  #wildschooling  #letthemplay  #childhood  #childhoodunplugged  #wildchild  #raiseawildchild  #wildandfree  #wildandbravelittles  #runwildmychild  #screenfree  #waterplay 
We’ve been #screenfree for about two weeks now. Within days I saw a behavior change. Corbin was no longer bouncing off the walls, he seemed more calm and was listening BETTER. Now, he is playing independently ALL day long and this morning I caught him in his rocking chair reading books. I’m one proud mama right now. 😊

Winter in Texas is ROUGH. Everything is a soggy shade of greige. No wonder we ran off to Florida for a week! 😂 Now, where to?  Arizona?  Washington, D.C. (cherry blossoms!!!)??? 🤔😍😉

This boy in his element 🌿 on a recent camping trip to the Cox’s River.
I love how infectious his inquisitive adventurous spirit has been for me. Being in Nature with my babies is pure joy 🌸

Lester from the National Parks Nsw giving us a talk on bugs running in the recent school holidays.. he was full of so much information and brought his personal collection of treasures and creatures from the Bush. Full of interesting facts that kept our boy mesmerised all morning. A fabulous program ran by the Parks based in Blackheath
