Team Favourites : Family Games
Games are one of the best ways to put aside all the distractions of modern day life, and just have some fun together as a family... and perhaps even get a bit competitive! :) We have chosen these games because most of them can be played from three years old, which means everyone can join in and bond ...

Great gift ideas for a 4-year-old
It was Marlow's 4th birthday last week and we had a fun-filled day celebrating the birthday girl. We woke early (jet-lagged!) and celebrated with bunting, balloons and pancakes, and we ended the day with a Mexican fiesta joined by friends here in Byron Bay. She received a small selection of the most beautiful gifts, each one so treasured. ...

Are We There Yet? by Jo Pink
For some of us the summer holiday has begun, and very soon we are about to embark on our annual roadtrip through Europe. We have a lot of miles to cover and I have already a pile of really exciting audio books packed which we all can't wait to listen to. In addition we have some fun ...

Kanoodle - a great game for all ages
Last week we joined our friends on holiday in Cornwall. We rented a cute flat overlooking the sea and spent our days exploring different sections of the coastline and our evenings back at home, cooking dinner, playing games and watching the sun set over the sea. Our six kids played so well together, coming up with ...

Dinosaur / Skeleton Memory Game
Do you sometimes play memory games with your children? And do you win? I honestly have trouble beating my kids! I remember that as a child, I loved playing Memory with adults, because I could actually beat them. I wonder, is it true that children have a better (short term) memory than grown-ups? Anyway, I ...

Kid Libs, Mad Libs for kids
My kids discovered Mad Libs for the first time this holiday and now I'm wondering what took me so long to introduce them! The giggles coming from the kids' table are so, so cute. Not to mention, they now know the difference between a verb and an adverb, a noun and a plural noun. The ...

Croquet
I have a new game obsession for this summer and it is... croquet! It was partly brought along by reading 'Alice in Wonderland', but also because it just looks like a lot of fun. Apparently it actually used to be an Olympic sport -- back in 1900 and in only one Olympic competition -- but still! It ...

Tortustick, a fun toy for kids of every age
I popped into Eenymeeny yesterday to pick up a few craft/activity books for the kids (we have a 9-hour daytime flight on Friday!) and this Tortustick game was out on display. Marlow immediately sat down and started playing with it, and to my amazement she actually sat still for a good 45 seconds. : ) I ended ...

Suspend
We have recently become game addicts. Monopoly and Go Fish are both in the mix (I think it has something to do with having a competitive 6-year-old in the house). We have just added a new one: Suspend! Have you played this? It is so good. It is basically an arial Jenga and the crazier the structure ...

Mesdames et messieurs, portable checkers game
This portable set of checkers, 'Mesdames et Messieurs', from the French company Les Jouets Libre, is a big hit in our house. Checkers is a fun (and very old) board game that can easily be played with fairly young children (I would say from the age of 6), and gets more strategic and challenging for ...

Guess Who? And other fun games from when we were young!
It's such fun to have children old enough to play games! We've recently been playing a lot of  'Guess Who?' -- do you remember this game from when you were young? It was one of my favourites! We also have been playing 'Operation', that silly game where you have to put the bones in the ...

Mastermind
Way back when, we lived in the USA. I was around 8 years old and I still remember it as clear as day, it made such a huge impression on me. I mean, the ice cream shop carried 33 different flavours of ice-cream and we got to eat our lunch at school wrapped up in ...

Cute AND clever products from Little Name
I have just recently discovered this sweet little boutique. The collection at Little Name is small, but every one of the products is noteworthy for being both cute AND clever. The adorable little handkerchief/scarf can also be used as a checkers board game for impromptu games in the park.  And the little wooden lunch box opens ...

Mancala - the simple counting game for all ages!
Did you play Mancala when you were a child? My siblings and I played all the time! I had forgotten all about it until recently stumbling upon it on Amazon while looking for Christmas gifts. I ended up buying it for my 6-year-old, and I think we've played already a bazillion times. Even my 4-year-old ...

Orchard game by Haba
The Orchard game by Haba has become our family's favourite board game for two major reasons. For one, it's a team game with no losers -- you work as a team to pick the orchard's fruit before the raven wins the game... so it's the team against the raven; everyone wins or loses together (which ...
