MEET THE ATHLETES: The 2nd youngest member of our #ohhandyolympics team is The Little Ladybird. She just moved up an age division today as it is her birthday. She is a strong competitor in anything involving glue acrylic paint and pencils but has a tendency to argue with her coaches. A feisty competitor this one!

With 2 littles under 3 and another on the way our chances of globe-trotting any time in the near future are slim to none. One of the many reasons I love picture books is that they give us the chance to bring the world to our children from the comfort of our own home. Mr Day back in his younger days did the Aussie thing and worked in London- as a guide on these hop-on hop-off tourist buses. This is a spread from "Ruby Red Shoes Goes to London" by Kate Knapp of @twigseeds. Ruby is a white hare…

This is how we do snow in Australia. When you order 3 small items online and it is delivered in a MAHOOSIVE box stuffed to the brim with packing peanuts so you let the kids dump them in the backyard and pretend you're in a Winter Wonderland. (And then tell them to put on their hats suncream and have some cold water because IT'S HOT.)  If you're after some bookish and arty inspo check out the @kidartlit challenge put together by my lovely lady friends @julialinsteadt and @chickadee.lit. This…

How to make paper beads out of old picture books is #ontheblog now (Link in profile.) You can use them to make wire sculptures (or scarecrows as The Little Ladybird calls them) jewellery.... So many possibilities!

I hope that kiddy bedtime on this Christmas Eve was swift and painless with minimal requests for water and bathroom trips. I hope that the kiddies requested the shortest bedtime stories from the bookshelves. I hope that the gift wrapping was efficient with minimal RSI and few paper cuts. I hope there was love and laughter and sweet treats and good drinks. Merry Christmas Eve! Now what to Netflix?

This is what happens when you let Miss Almost-3 choose a birthday cake for her grandad out of the @awwcookbooks birthday cakes book. She goes with the Hickory Dickory Dock cake. You then remember that according to Chinese custom it's a huge faux pas to give clocks and watches as a gift. The passing of time and all. Sorry Dad.

Took our Kitchen Roll "Telescope" for a spin at our local garden centre this afternoon. They were most effective at spotting "wild animals" in the "jungle." (Apologies fellow shoppers for any alarm caused.) Don't try telling her these are actually binoculars and not a telescope. She's clearly almost-3 and clearly knows better than everybody else.

In 2 weekends' time kiddies around the world will be tucked into bed eagerly anticipating waking up the next morning to Christmas. What books do you predict will be read on Christmas Eve at your place?This book is currently the most requested Christmas book here. "L'âne Trotro et Zaza fêtent Noël" by Bénédicte Guettier. Given to us by our gorgeous friend @peregrinationgourmande. I "translate" it into English (really drawing on my distant memories of high school French) and Miss 3 doesn't…

Mavis Mod Podge the Unicorn knew that the other ponies were laughing at her as she took to the #ohhandyolympics Equestrian Arena. But the Organising Committee had deemed that she could compete (cause @handywithscissors and I are for accepting all types.) Soon after she raced her head deflated and she was put out to pasture. What a glorious Olympic tale though!  This is by far the most hilarious craft project we've ever undertaken. We brought a half-finished papier-mached ballon home from…
