My kids are watching a documentary on microbes for biology today.
And I've never been so itchy.
Microbiology fascinates me but goodness, I never want to touch anything ever again. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

In 2013, my Grandpa passed away during Holy Week. So this time of year always reminds me of him. And with yesterday being Easter, I decided that for today’s #kaylabsmotivatingmonday I wanted to share this special quote that always reminds me of him too. .

He always had this quote on his computer desk. And I feel he very much so, lived his life true to this message. He wasn’t a worrier, and believed so fully in his β€˜sometimes silly’ imaginative outlook on things. I wish I could train my brain to do the same. 😌
.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday, and have a beautiful week ahead! πŸ’—

DAY 21 #horsedrawnchallenge Back to a bit of charcoal/charcoal and chalk for these four, about 15mins each, no reference.

Canson Mi Teintes paper is so great for charcoal, it sits so softly on the surface allowing plenty of scope for pushing it around, removing it and having enough tooth to take the darker strokes, all if which suit my quick way of working so well. So versatile for coloured pastels and conte too, love it. My plan chest is full of the stuff....I should buy shares really! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š #charcoalhorse #charcoaldrawing #quickpainting #kilmarnockhorserescue #miteintespaper #blackandwhite #movement #gestural #horse #equitation #cansonpaper #useyourimagination #freehand #sketchartist #lovehorses #pushyourself

Earth Day themed Mess Free, Taste Safe Painting / Sensory bags! (Swipe πŸ‘ˆπŸ» to se original set up and final artwork)
🌎
In the spirit of Earth Day, we’ve sifted through our recycling for a paper plate and are reusing our ziplock bags.
.
.
Do you reuse your ziplock bags???
It’s so easy to think of them as disposable, but also just as easy to give them a quick rinse and reuse!
🌍
We’ve also used DIY taste safe finger paint for Lil Dot (who sometimes bites into sensory bags) - cornflour, flour, water, food colour.

I wasn’t sure if I should post the before and after of our basement since it is so NOT β€œfarmhouse” styleπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ, and is totally going to mess up my IG squares with its color scheme😏, but this basement brings my children the same amount of joy that farmhouse decor brings me😍. This account is also a real representation of my home and it’s current season of life. Currently we are in the three children under the age of five season, so farmhouse man-cave is on hold until 2035πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€£. This space Is definitely kid inspired! Especially my very active, non stop, loves to play all day long little humans! I was once told that my house was not β€œkid” friendly because it lacked color and children NEED color for their development. Imagine my excitement when I sent this person pictures of my basement😬. I think we have color covered. This doesn’t mean I can’t fantasize about what I will do with this space in 2035πŸ€”, but until then the extremely bright primary colors are here to stay❀️. .

⁣
Mr A loved looking through the coloured see through blocks. He tried to stack items on top of the @grimmsaustralia friends, allowing him to see that some items don’t sit on top of certain items. ⁣
⁣
Playing with pieces that allow stacking are great for exposing children to balance, gravity, problem solving and geometry. ⁣

Hope you all had a great weekend and got your hands dirty! 🌱 I didn’t spend too much time in the garden but I did get to finish mulching this hugel bed, like I mentioned yesterday, and built this short fence around it to keep the dog out. It’ll also help to keep the kids from climbing that trellis that looks way too much like a ladder πŸ˜….
It feels good to know this large planting space is all ready to go for the spring madness next month.
When do you plant out your summer veg where you live?

This week’s Sunday Funday Challenge is this gorgeous floral frame. I changed the flowers and used it on a treat bag. How cute is this?!? Cotton muslin bags from Amazon(I use Augbunny) come in a variety of sizes and are great for gift bags, packing lingerie, treat bags... You’re limited only by your imagination!

I was mucking about in my #backyard #stream and found these 2 #rocks next to each other. Not sure if it's obvious to you but, to me, it looks like a #bunny and an #Easteregg #useyourimagination #rockcollector #nature #iseebunnies

Kicking off the week with some deep sea funorama!
🐬
Inspired by the ocean watercolour backdrops MJ made last week, I put together this little coral reef diorama for my sea obsessed little man.

I cut out some coral and seaweed elements from paint chip cards, sticking them onto a cardboard strip to create a 3D element that can stand alone and be shuffled forward and backwards during play.

I also whipped up some sand dough (once again getting my recipe wrong! Double quantity of salt has led to a dry batch, but oh well)! After our play is finished, we pop the sanddough back in a jar and next to our diorama, meaning it’s on hand for next play and allows independent toddler set up.

I could have attached our fishy friends with a bit more finesse, but when you have an ultra excited toddler at your heels, finesse doesn’t really matter! So a bit of blue tac worked a treat! (And also made it easy for MJ to independently reattach).
🐠

🐬
Needless to say, MJ was fully immersed in this play, from exploring the elements, to small world fun, (which included feeding the dolphin lots of sand and creating a sand hat for our fish). Not to mention the little spurts of problem solving as fish were pulled down and put back.
