  • Today was one of those ‘real’ days! I had a screaming, grumpy, sick 3 year old and a 5 year old who needed some extra love today. It was nice to have this moment where Parker sat and explored rocks he collected from outside. It kept him entertained and amazed for a while.
.
.our science flashcards from @theplayemporium gave us the play prompt to find and look at rocks. RIVER12 to give you 12% off on your set 😉

  • Is it bedtime yet?
It was a long night last night. If you saw my stories you would have seen me post a pic of Jackson awake at about 1.25 am 🤦🏻‍♀️
He woke up coughing and was coughing to the point that he vomited...in my bed. 
And then once I had cleaned all that up and gotten him back into bed, Cooper woke up because he had wet the bed. 
I finally managed to get to sleep about 2. 
Meanwhile @cheekybubbas had 30% off clothing. Use code SUPER30

  • 🌿Rock Pools🌿

There is not much better than exploring rock pools with a child. Discovering the absolute beauty underneath rocks and sharing in the excitement and suspense of not knowing what you will discover. Navigating the uneven rocks, planning where your feet are going to go and what rock you will touch...nature really is incredible!!

  • If you've been following along with us for a while, you will know how much we love creating tactile learning boards using natural resources. So, I couldn't help but write about 'how to' make these boards in the free #plasticfreekind ebook, downloadable via @wholekind. I've also provided a list of potential learning topics, but thought I would re-share our 'Compost Learning Board' which we made last year. If you have a compost bin or worm farm, your little ones may enjoy creating something similar for Plastic Free July. 

This is the list from our learning board:
• Sticks and twigs.
• Remains of fruits and vegetables.
• Straw and hay.
• Crushed eggshells.
• Tea and coffee grinds.
• Dead flowers.
• Dried leaves.
• Paper and cardboard. 

Remember to tag all your plastic-free posts this July with #plasticfreekind to go into the running for a wonderful giveaway, worth over $600. You may also like to check out these fabulous ladies for more plastic-free inspiration:

  • It's so easy to feel like you can't keep up with what others are doing in their classrooms.

Often doubting yourself as a failure.

Asking why your classroom doesn't look as neat and tidy as theirs.

Wondering how they have the time to make such detailed displays.

Next time you feel this happening to you ask yourself this...

Where is the evidence of the child here?

Wonder why a particular area has been set up in the way it has and does it link to the child interest or skill development.

Too many times we compare the great (and often messy!) child led practice we're doing to the 'perfect' learning spaces we see online.

That needs to stop now.

We don't need perfect spaces. We need well used spaces.

  • Good Morning lovelies! Hope everyone is keeping well. How cute is this photo of Teddy in our Mustard Dungarees Shirts by the way! So snuggly.

We've had quite a few people asking for a date when we will re-open. We are aiming for this weekend, but it might change so we don't want to commit to it just yet and have to let you guys down. The plan is to open the website as soon as we have cleared our order list. Illness and childcare problems have struck the Moon Child household though which is why we might be slightly delayed.
Hope you guys understand!

If you need to order anything for a certain date, just pop us over a message and we will see what we can do.

Fingers crossed that everything should be ok to open this weekend!

Stay Wild, Moon Child 🐻🌿

  • Tuesday is our “quiet/home” day the kids always enjoy pottering in the morning...we took a late afternoon walk to the rope tree. We hadn’t been back for a while, part of a big tree had broken off by the high winds I suspect however there was the addition of a rope swing! As soon as they’re up in those trees the imaginary play begins...from fishing and catching tuna to being in the house drinking tea and eating sushi...Miss 5 decided to make a “fire” as it was so cold I asked if she needed her jacket - “I’m ok mum I’m standing by the fire” ❤️

  • Forest homes.....ready to move straight in!
 We finally have these beauties available to order and now online.
We are really happy with how they have come together..... structurally strong with a timber floor and beautiful textured details. They stand about 30cm tall and are perfect for all the forest folk and their animal friends. Lids lift off and branch and mushroom decorations come as standard.
.
For those of you who have known us from 'The Friendship Tree' days, may remember our beautiful big mushroom house.....well this is the revised and reworked edition!
Still full of whimsy and made by Birch and Bear in Melbourne .

  • In our house, we love @stonyfield Organic kids yogurt (AD)! It is our go-to snack option over here and I especially love the convenience of the pouch. Did you know that you can freeze the pouches? They can be packed frozen and they are still cold by lunch! We love going outdoors for an adventure, even if it is in our own backyard, and these pouches are perfectly portable for healthy snacking anywhere, anytime.

Stonyfield Organic pouches give me peace of mind as they are always organic, contain live and active cultures, are a good source of calcium. And like everything at #Stonyfield, they are Good on Purpose. You can purchase them at your local grocery store in single form or a 4 pack.

Have your kiddos tried #StonyfieldKids yogurt yet?

  • Just playing ants today. ⁣
⁣
Nature study doesn’t HAVE to mean books and a bunch of printables and journaling and crafts. But the fact is: if I posted a photo of my children flipping over wood pieces in our yard to find ant colonies and observing them with wonder, no one would see the post or care. That’s not a complaint, just a reality. ⁣
⁣
So I’m left to use words and say: you don’t need ALL the books. Just maybe one good one. You can do a nature study without printing a SINGLE piece of paper!! ((And yes I realize that’s absurd coming from a person who sells printables)). ⁣
⁣
Our ant nature study involved:⁣
🐜Observing real ants over multiple days (many inside our house) ⁣
🐜PLAY!!! We played ants with this crafted ant colony on cardboard and painted rock ants ((which I created years ago and are still going strong))⁣
🐜Life cycle terminology refresher (we’ve learned these before)⁣
🐜Reading about ants from The Big Book of Bugs and Nature Anatomy (maybe 10 minutes) ⁣
⁣
The printables pictured here I’ve had printed for 3 years now. ((They are all FREE on my blog by the way))⁣
⁣
The beautiful life cycle tray was gifted to us from @modernimaginationtoys ⁣
⁣
I bought the life cycle of an ant set from @safariltd — by putting that in my photo I’m not telling you it’s necessary to own BUT my kids do particularly love ants so I thought they would had fun with this.⁣
⁣
So .... really, you can do an ant study without a single thing pictured in this photo. That’s all I’m saying! Go outside. That’s the best classroom.⁣
⁣
And remember to play. Nature study shouldn’t be so bookish.

  • I did a little (ok, it was pretty big) squeal of joy today when Megan @sweet_little_light messaged me to say the last of the images were put into my Dropbox! 🙌💃🏻🥳🥰
.
I am so so so happy with them and how they are coming together in the page layouts.
.
The book is about 90% done and is on track for a September release 💪

Is there anything you are curious about? What do you want to know about the how/why/where/what of publishing a book? 📚🌿

  • This house has been full of all the messy school holiday fun! 👩🏼‍🎨🧪🙌🏻 Everly loves some cheeky experimenting; so a lot of mixing potions and colour experimenting has gone down this week, (well every week really..😂) A little experiment we do to help foster some curiosity, is colour exploring.. How many colours can your littles make with primary colours? Add some white for different shades and aesthetic purposes; even some glitter for a different texture. A simple but great way for your kiddos to learn about primary, secondary and tertiary Colours. ✨ happy weekend folks!

  • I want to drink a whole bunch of water and just sit or lay under the sun so I can HEAL AND GROW, just like a plant or a wildflower 🌿 ✨
