Heathly, easy snacks for the kids #

Living in Brisbane our lifestyle has totally changed. Although the warm weather is everywhere in Australia right now, never before have my children spent so much time outdoors. Practically all day, everyday. Dirty feet - every night. The boys have been using the Nature Play Passport which has given us a few new ideas. 

The boys love chocolate and I knew I could come up with a healthy chocolate snack. They don't look so pretty but they taste fantastic and only took a couple of minutes to make. 

Healthy snacks for the children #2

Today we walked to our local library to find a beautiful organic community garden. The ladies there were so, so lovely and welcoming. I was amazed to find such a wonderful resource in our own neighbourhood. Below are some of the snippets we took home. Some to grow, some to eat!

 Otis made some leaf prints.

He was experimenting, this was the most effective method.

I really love air plants - they are so practical. We gave ours a soak today and they are looking all bright and fresh. More seedpods collected on our nature walk.

Otis learning… something #

I have no idea what this is called or what Otis is learning (above) but it looks like fun.

Otis, watching gekkos on the balcony and the possums running up and down the power lines. These are beeswax candles we made previously.
