Butterfly Rearing & Hatching At Home

If you have not worked with one of these kits I would certainly recommend it! 


We have visited many sites with butterfly exhibits, living and preserved. This is an incredible place! The Victoria Butterfly Gardens, Victoria BC.


An amazing mom from one of our homeschooling/unschooling groups ordered a large kit, that we all split on as a group.

Starting Violin Lessons!

There has been lots of music related excitement around the house. Xander has discovered a great love of the violin.
He has chatted about possibly wanting to try the violin, but one evening not so long ago he came to us and said "I'm really serious about learning, and would like to try."

Print Making for Kids

This is a super simple method of printmaking with really basic materials. You will find tons of inspiration online to create some amazing artwork with your children.


I remember my college printmaking classes, and I have to say they were some of my favourites.

DIY Play Structure - Ideas & Fun!

We have built a few play structures over the years, and I wanted to share a few things fun things with you.



When Xander was around 2.5yrs we decided to build our own play structure and swing set. The sets we were finding were either extremely expensive, or reasonable but made from materials that didn't seem to have a lot of longevity. We started out with one tower, and bought a hardware kit to build what we wanted.

Kids Science - Exploring Matter

Winter has completely inspired Ava to think about changes in the state of matter. She has all kinds of questions about freezing and melt. So this was a fun time to bring out a book that was an old favourite of Xander's.

This is a really fun simple book that explains and demonstrates the states of matter with great visuals and simple experiments. Everything used in the book is super easy to put together with things you most likely already have on hand.




This is one of those many things that most kids become extremely curious about. I loved this book because the kids could even gather most of the materials needed to follow along on their own.
