{giveaway} Nova Harley Baby Bag from Down That Little Lane

In the last few years baby bags have really come a very long way!! I remember my nappy bag with Noah who is now 7.5 was pretty much just a big plain black bag made of an almost plasticy material that wasn’t well thought out or nice to look at, but these days they are gorgeous and very well designed to cater for our busy on the go lifestyles. Pretty and practical – you can’t beat that and you’ll probably still be using them well past the baby stage! I know I will be!!

non toxic edible sensory slime

This slime is super fun and VERY easy to make, and only needs 2 ingredients {or 3, if you colour it with food colouring like we did!} It’s borax free and completely non toxic so you don’t have to worry about kids consuming glue or borax like many other slimes contain! It’s also perfect for small babies and toddlers to play with.
It is completely edible since it is made with pysillium husk {available from most supermarkets and health food stores}. 
I bought our packet of psyllium for about $5. If you can find a really fine […]

organised lego storage

I get a few messages about our organised lego storage most weeks, so I thought I’d do up a post to share with you all about it!
Noah (7 years old) had been asking and asking if we could separate his lego by colour and I honestly was apprehensive – it looks great and super organised when separated but I didn’t think he would keep up with it in terms of cleaning and packing up after a busy lego building session! And since he is responsible for cleaning up his own lego mess I really thought the […]

{printable} Father’s Day handprint tree

Hi everyone!
As promised yesterday on facebook here is a free printable version of our handprint tree for Father’s Day. 
I absolutely LOVE anything with a handprint. You can’t go past them for a super easy {not to mention cute!!!} keepsake. 
The kids chose their colours after I did Owen’s in blue and then had a thought that maybe they should be green since it’s a tree. Ha. But it doesn’t really  matter!
Their hands also didn’t fit as well as I thought they would on the one page so later this afternoon I am going to do an […]

the chewiest, yummiest chocolate chip cookies

There’s something about chocolate chip cookies that remind me of rainy afternoons. With a glass of milk in hand and a plate of cookies, my 3 brothers and I would watch as the rain drops fell into the blue of the pool while the thunder rolled in the distance.
Back then, our chocolate chip cookies were courtesy of Betty Crocker. These days, they’re made from scratch and usually with the help of one or two little cuties.
I have been working on this recipe for a while – and now this is my ‘go to’ when I […]
