A tip for homesick children (or for children who leave home for a few days)
PARENTING TIPS
Pim started his last year in primary school this week! It's going to be a fun and exciting year for him, with the school musical, the fashion show, choosing a secondary school... And then at the end of the year, saying goodbye to his classmates who will all scatter to different schools. But first, the ...

An electric bike -- my favourite mode of transport
A year and a half ago, we moved away from our little flat around the corner from our school, to a bigger flat a good 20 minutes walk from the school. None of us are morning people, so I knew I had to find a solution for getting young Vivi to school on time. A friend ...

A vibrant new Autumn/Winter collection at Louise Misha
Okay, okay... I will admit straight away that these photos are not very Autumn/Wintery with the beach as our backdrop, and with barefoot children as my little models.  : )  But, this is exactly what I love about the Louise Misha brand: the pieces are beautiful and cheerful, despite the season. This is the new ...

The Montessori Toddler, by Amsterdam Montessori teacher Simone Davies
Toddlers can be a handful. The expression 'the terrible twos' says enough: toddlers are known to be difficult and obstinate. They won't eat, won't sleep, won't listen, and in general go left when you want them to go right! Simone Davies, Montessori teacher and writer of the new publication 'The Montessori Toddler', sees things in ...

Red beet greens and goat cheese quiche. Delicious!
Once a year our supermarket hands out sacs of seeds for children to collect. Our kids love collecting these, so now our greenhouse and garden are overflowing with vegetables. Including tons of red beets, which I love. Before leaving on our big trip, I was roasting them in batches and keeping them in the fridge, ...

How gorgeous has summer been in Europe? Oh my goodness we are loving it! These slow, happy, sunshiny days are just perfect.

Coloring Without Borders is incredible! From the sadness of the crisis at the US border earlier this year, where hundreds of families were separated, a beautiful project with a wonderful mission hatched : to help end family separation and to reunite all families who remain torn apart. The concept grew and grew with more than 80 talented artists creating sketches and illustrations from around the world. More than just a simple coloring-in book, this encourages children — both Spanish and English speaking– to colour and use the space that the artists have created but also to create something more beautiful, to express themselves with their imagination. And even to color over the lines... without borders! Hundreds of copies of the book have been sent to children who have been separated from their families, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to Families Belong Together. We love everything about this idea! ️ What a perfect gift for every child you know. Read more, tap on the link. @coloringwithoutborders @fams2gether #familiesbelongtogether
