Parachutes

Whenever I ask my kids what they want to be, when they grow up, the answer is always the same, scientist! They are very inquisitive as most children are, always on a mission to find new experiments to do and adventures to embark on.

I make it my mission to never utter the words “I don’t know”, when they ask questions I don’t have answers for. Instead I make it into an experiment we can find the answers to together, all while we are having fun and spending quality time.

How do birds fly, how does different  bubble makers and parachutes work? Answering their questions lead us to actually making parachutes out of some yarn and a piece of plastic. For the skydiver we used non other then my girls’ favorite franchise, My Little Pony characters. #InspireHerMind

 

My Little Pony Birthday Party

I have a little girl here, who is very excited for her birthday. To say that she’s obsessed with My Little Pony, is the biggest understatement in the history of the world. So of course she wants to have a MLP themed party. I have a specific idea I want to implement, I’m thinking MLP Sleep Under Party. I’ve already ordered a bunch of party supplies and I will be sharing them all, once they arrive, but for now, enjoy this mood board I’ve created for the occasion.

Outfit Of The Day & A Greener Future

When I was living in Norway, I always hated returning empty bottles of cans. Ugh, the long waiting lanes and there was nothing glamours about trash bags filled with dirty and wet bottles. The smell alone was enough to make me want to throw in the towel.

Those days are long gone and I no longer live in a society, where recycling your empty bottles and cans for pocket change is looked upon as normal. Until recently… No I haven’t moved back to Norway, the Australian government is making an effort to encourage it’s residence to recycle more. Similar to Norway, we now exchange our empty bottles and cans for 10 cents each. It’s not much, but enough to make people think twice about where they throw their garbage.

I have made a conscious decision to become better at recycling, but also to include my kiddos in this process. They learn about the importance of taking care of our planet and they get to keep the change we get for recycling. Win, win!
