So very cool.
So, you want to share your Pagan world-view and values with your kids, without indoctrinating them into it? What better way than to give them the kind of books you loved as a kid, which may have influenced your own path to recognising that you are a Pagan?
My 6yo favourite thing lately is to eat something yummy and sigh, "Mmmmm delicious." Kids will always have a few words that are "words of the month" ones they use so much it will get on your nerves. "Delicious" is preferable to "siiick" haha
Yep. I was just thinking, we have a nice tall recycling bin inside. We've had it for over 6years and in that time its been mostly fine, minor damage only. The past few months my Monster has been taking that recycling bin out, daily, to empty it in the big bin.... In just those few months, it's almost to the point where it needs to be replaced. He has the magic touch hahaha
Beltane, or May Day, celebrates the fertility of the earth, the diversity of our community, and the joys of living in a body. Traditions for this holiday that are especially fun with children including gathering flowers to make wreaths and garlands; getting up at dawn to bathe your face in the dew; and dancing the Maypole.
I’ve been at this homeschooling gig for almost a decade, and over the years, I’ve come up with a system for planning our school year that has stood the test of time. Feel free to borrow any of these tips and ... Read More
Fantastic. But if I show this to my kids, they will demand we try to do it, or similar and I wouldn't have a clue how to try something like this haha https://youtu.be/QQ9gs-5lRKc
There's no discounting the importance of memorizing math facts.

Naidoc Week is fast approaching and I was looking for some ways for our boys to learn about the Aboriginal people of Australia and their culture.

180 Degrees of Separation: The Moon part 1. Looking at the moon and how it is different between the southern and northern hemispheres.
A great post from Aussie Pumpkin Patch... "One big question I hear a lot, when I mention my children being independent learners is, “But I want to learn alongside my children.” Here’s the thing, Friends.. Sometimes Mamma is holding her kids back. I’m not saying that to be mean, I’m saying that to be honest."
How my nephew revealed new wisdom in his re-telling of an ancient fable
Let kids be kids. I have actually always agreed with this sentiment, but not in the same way some people mean it. I think we should let kids be kids, but it's not up to us adults to determine what being a kid means, to kids! We aren't kids any more, they are, who knows better how to be a kid than a kid? So this... This is disgusting... "Go back to your dolls and tea sets" what the hell?!? This girl is awesome. She is being a kid, the kid she wants to be, she isn't letting some adult tell her how to be what she IS and they are most decidedly NOT! Good for her. Good on her parents for not trying to force her to be something else. And you know what, it works the other way too. Let kids be kids also means, if a kid chooses to play with dolls and tea sets, then let them do so - don't force them to be a full on journalist or whatever else. Kids can't make all the right choices, yet. Of course. But the one choice they can make, and make better than we can - is the choice on how to be kids. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/apr/06/nine-year-old-reporter-orange-street-news-truth?CMP=soc_567
