Song of the Sea

Brooke BennettComment

Wow! My daughter and I headed to ACMI cinema in Melbourne this week and watched the film 'Song of the Sea'

This animated film first came out in 2014 and somehow it slipped under my radar!

We laughed and cried throughout this very gentle and sweet film. Reminded me of watching 'Ponyo', Studio Ghibli film for the first time.

This film was a lovely contrast to the loud, busy Hollywood films our kids often watch.

If you haven't seen this film, I hope you can find time to see it with your little ones.

Showing at ACMI now these school holidays.

NGV- Victor and Rolf for kids

Summer has officially arrived in Melbourne. How hot is it?!!

Summer school holidays are my favourite and there's lots of activities to get involved. in. We love jumping on the train and heading into the city!

NGV seems to always have the best kids interactive craft spaces in the summer holidays and we were treated to a multimedia paper craft activity. We had the opportunity to make our own creative interpretations of a cuff, collar or decadent hat inspired by the wonderful fashion designers - Victor and Rolf.

My daughter loves to use scissors so she was in heaven. When you finish your creative piece you can head over to one of three dioramas to enjoy a little fashion shoot wearing your creations. 

Afterwards we headed out the back of the NGV to cool down in the 'CAR WASH'. A giant pink structure dangling ropes, plastic ribbons and mists of water spray from high above. 

Lots of fun!!!

Not recommended for children under 3 years old 

Keep cool!

Bring on the Xmas craft

It's December and that means Kids Xmas Craft Time. They love it..and I so do I!

I created a 'Xmas Craft' board on pinterest.


We enjoyed making some xmas cards for grandparents, xmas crown, collage baubles with cellophane and a fun Santa face. At home my daughter helped me make a babysitting xmas gift card for my awesome family I currently work for. 

Merry Xmas!
