The Royal Australian Mint: Country-Wide Scavenger Hunt!

Mummy Confession: I am guilty of being a tap-n-go mum! How many mums have limited their amount of physically taking out notes and coins in this modern age of convenience and the availability of “tap-n-go”? I can say that I am certainly guilty!

Playing Games With Your Young Child (Not Your Everyday “Bored” Games)

I’ve asked a fellow mum to write a bit about games that are great for young children, and it just so happens that this mum reviews games with her children and has a website and podcast dedicated to these reviews! I’ll let her do all of the talking, and hopefully she can suggest some great games for your children that not only provoke imagination and learning AND don’t push you to the brink of insanity or boredom! Anitra Smith has been a stay-at-home mom since 2008, but she used to be a software engineer and a giant nerd. Now she Read More
