Planning with Kids

Check out our guest post on Planning with Kids this month. This is a great site with plenty of ideas for kids including recipes and craft activities as well as some interesting articles on subjects like preparing for school and discipline strategies. As a mother of five kids, Planning Queen knows what she's talking about and her articles are really informative, plus she has some fun and quirky suggestions for things to do at home including lego capes and newspaper swords. So become a fan and start getting organised.


  1. Great new look Jules and thanks for writing such a great guest post for my blog!

  2. So excited to find your blog (I am a regular reader of Planning with Kids), I live in the outer eastern suburbs and have 2 girls, a 3 year old and 4 year old and I'm always looking for ideas!

    One class we go to I would like to share with you is called "Music Together" ( which is a music class held at Uniting Churches around Melbourne. It is run by a qualified music therapist and is not religiously based. My local group charges $11 per family and includes a 45 minute music class followed by morning tea of fairy bread and fresh fruit in the hall where the mums can have a cuppa and the kids can play with assorted toys.

    Before I found this class I thought music workshops were too expensive to take my girls too.

    These school holidays we have gone to quite a few local library activities which are either free or low cost, I can highly recommend any which feature Carp productions ( which are hilarious pantomimes involving the audience.

    Good luck with your blog and I look forward to reading more!


  3. Jules, I love your website and this guest post so much that I blogged about you today!

  4. thanks ladies, so lovely to get positive feedback.

    Ellen - thanks for suggesting Music Together, it sounds great and definitely one I will check out. You're right its so hard to find a good and affordable music class. The pantomines sound really good too, I am going to contact them and see when their next public production is as I love taking the kids to theatre shows.

    Megan - wow, thank you for this great write up. I love your blog btw and I have become a regular reader of Kids Book Review. I am an aunty of seven too so I really relate to your recent post. thanks again
