Do your children like to create cubby houses inside the house? 
What a perfect way to spend a wet, sleepy Sunday than to build, rebuild, imagine and play for hours in your very own cubby, made with love and laughter!
Children love to create the magical, often "invisible" world of being in a cubby, or a far-away land. Giggles and gorgeous funny memories are made inside a wrap of blankets, held up by chair arms, pegs and buckets! 
How about trying it out in your home, you and your children will LOVE it!
If you're looking for a Pink Poppy tent, check this one out.....beautiful, fun and sure to take your Pink Poppy's to a far-away place!......Enjoy xxx

The delight, the sheer delight....!

Birthday morning. Early start to the day. She is wide awake and looking for the BIRTHDAY bonanza!
As she sees the gifts sitting at the end of her bed, she smiles, she giggles and she then shrills with delight!
 "Its my birthday!!". The whole family is now awake.....
Her attention is drawn immediately to the pink parcel, tied up with purple ribbon. She reads he card.
She carefully lifts the tape.
She giggles again, to find in her pretty parcel a Pink Poppy " Decorate A Crown Kit - for her party with 5 of her friends! What a joy, how exciting. The best news after opening this parcel....was that FIVE of her favorite friends were joining her to celebrate her birthday,  complete with party food, games and so much JOY! This was the best birthday EVER......xx

Staying Home....

What is your child's favourite activity to do at home? Is it dressing up? Is it painting and craft? Tending the garden or baking? Perhaps staying in their PJ's all day, and reading books and playing on their devices?Staying at home ALL day is so cosy and comforting for children. A day of rest and relaxation is what everyone needs sometimes - especially kids. A day to take stock, breathe deep and play, draw, colour and create.Why not stay at home one day soon and and enjoy your home, your place.....xx

Our Pink Poppy Colouring In Competition has now CLOSED. 

Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more competition updates, in the future!....xx 

If there is one thing that settles a small group of gorgeous, gregarious girls down - its a packet of sparkly pens and pencils and a delightful colouring in sheet! This is a PERFECT way to start a party, as your pint-sized guest start to arrive.....It is a good neutral "leveler" - where little ones can focus on their job, whilst being part of a larger, laughing group! Colouring In is a great activity and development tool for young children. It can promote self confidence and creativity, whilst giving children the freedom to "do their own thing", within the printed lines. Dots, stripes, shapes and splodges all "work" - when you're colouring in! Why not encourage your little Pink Poppy's to experiment with colour, whilst increasing their hand-eye co-ordination and limitless creativity these holidays! Have FUN!

Do you have a family pet? What is it? A dog, a cat, perhaps a chicken or a bird? Do your children long for an usual pet? A pet crocodile? A pet turtle, a pig or a donkey?
Kids learn a lot from animals. No matter how small they are (goldfish still have needs!). The learn to nurture, feed, clean and care for another being. They become responsible for another living creature. The can build up a friendship and a fun loving emotional bond, with this animal. 
Teaching children, from an early age, to care for something other than themselves is invaluable. Much like older siblings, who often have an inbuilt nurturing ability. Being a part of a caring and considerate family and community - as a child - builds amazing adults......and pet owners for years to come. Enjoy you children, your family,
your pets and your community!.....xx

Do you like to make or buy your cakes and treats for kids parties and special occasions?
Interestingly, many Australian families are getting into the baking phenomena, inspired by the latest craze of cooking and baking shows! How do you celebrate a family members birthday? Do you have several cakes - to cater to everyone's tastes - gluten-free, egg-free, or simply doesn't-like-pavlova, nut and / or chocolate allergy, etc etc....The CAKE is always the focal point of the party! Whats you favourite birthday cake? 
Yes, Pink Poppy's, we all can have our fav cake, and eat it too!.......Happy Birthday to those born in JUNE xx

Holiday dreaming......
Are you dreaming of your next holiday?
Are you spending time thinking about the cooler, crisp-air, cold climate holidays verses the warmer, tropical paradises you and your family could be enjoying?
What appeals to your family when it comes to breaking away from the ordinary? Is there a "me-time" factored into your holidays plans or is it just all about the children?
Whether your daydreaming, day tripping or taking a large amount of "time-out" this season - make sure it is suitable for YOU and you FAMILY. 

Happy kids = happy parents = happy holiday!!

How many days until....

As children, there are often so many things to look forward to. Their next party, singing class at school, taking the dog for her next walk - somethings are very significant, some things not so much.
The latest date to look forward is "mums birthday", in June.
Although "mum" isn't too excited at the prospect of turning another year older, Miss 6 is over the moon!
She counts down the days left in the month of May, and as soon as June swings around, its all about the next birthday!
How life is so sweet, when your excited about the smallest things. The spirit of a child is a wonderfully complex, yet simple thing. 

What are you looking forward to......?

 Travel with tots…..Traveling on holidays with little ones can be fun, it can also be a challenge. The destination in the end is usually worth it though….that is the final goal, the end result, the moment to look forward to!Try to stay calm, pack plenty of healthy snacks, colouring in books and pencils, small games and puzzles in their own backpack, for your children to engage with. Train, plane or automobile journeys can all become tiresome, long and arduous! Often children don’t have the understanding of what travel is all about - they are unfamiliar and sometimes anxious, as they leave their home with just a packed bag and one favourite toy.Try to explain the process to them and stay calm yourself….and remember, you’re going on holidays….yippee!!

Cooking class……..It’s a cold, wet and grey day outside. The garden party planned for her bestfriend’s birthday has been postposed, due to the force of mother nature. Not a great way to kick start a weekend for her or you! 

What to do…..Hhhmm? Let’s COOK! 

Cooking or baking with little ones is truly an invaluable, educational experience. As much as the mess and the clean-up aftermath may not appeal – the actual practice of home cooking is a joyful skill they may take them well into adulthood. Cooking at home provides a number of great lessons – the art of ingredient choice, nutritional value of food, safety awareness in and around the kitchen, what actually “works” and what doesn’t, cleanliness and tidiness and most of all patience! Cooking with your children also provides you all with a strong connection and loving family bond…..

Here’s to enjoying that wet weekend after all!....xx

To dear Tooth Fairy,
Please can I keep my tooth this time? I know you like to fly away with them, far far away, but this time, I would like to keep my tooth! My friends say you make necklaces out of children’s teeth! My mum tells me you keep them, and they help build new fairy houses.  Some people even believe you grind them up to make magic fairy dust out of them! I am not sure what you do with all those teeth, but all I know is that this time around I would LOVE to keep my tooth. The reason’s the first tooth I have lost, and I don’t want to let it go. I promise next time I will let you keep it!
Love from Me x

PS You must have really strong wings to carry all those teeth and gold coins around!

Reading – whose turn is it?.....

Reading is wonderful! Children learn to read at their own time, at their own pace. Don’t force it, yet don’t ignore it. Enjoy the art of reading, comprehension and imagination with your children, each step of their way. Reading is so enjoyable, it might become a battle of whose turn it is tonight to read the book! Fast or slow, eager or reluctant…the best part about learning and mastering the art of reading is to enjoy each and every moment, together!

Ballet or Soccer or…. ?

Activities. The choices are limitless…Is she the one who enjoys 

pirouetting around in a pink chiffon skirt, laughing and loving each 

moment and movement, with her ballerina friends…or is running 

fast and skilfully around a fresh grassy field with the sun in her hair 

and the wind in her boots more her style? Perhaps she is into 

swimming like a mermaid, silently gliding through warm water each 

week as she builds confidence as a competition swimmer? 

Does she have the voice of a nightingale, who loves to enchant 
through her singing? Perhaps she loves to read, and become "that 
character” in her favourite story book?

Our young girls – the women of our future - have so many  opportunities to individually shine! 

What activities makes your little lady shine?....

A very special day…………….

As her little eyes open slowly, and the sunlight gently filters 

in, the feeling of wonderment sharply arrives in her little 

sleepy head! “Today” has finally arrived! The day which has 

been talked about, dreamed about, thought long &hard about, counted down to…..25, 18, 11, 7, 6, 5,4,3,2,….

Yes…today is her birthday. Her day, when friends and family

 will celebrate with her, love her and remember with her! 

We wish you every beautiful Pink Poppy wish for your little girl’s birthday, and may all her dreams come true…..x

What is your favourite colour?...............

Red, orange, purple, indigo or blue? Is it a rainbow of colours, that’s are truly special to you? Some days the choice is simple, it’s straight forward. Most days our favourite colour is PINK! However, some days purple creeps in… as does gold, silver, aqua and green. Colours, like feeling, moods, expressions and laughter, move with the day and the wind. The most beautiful part about having a favourite colour, is that it can change, depending on your day, your week, or even the next party you find yourself invited to! Enjoy your rainbow day, today and ever day!....xx
