Having a toddler is fun and exciting. Everyday is a new adventure with your little tot!
Children love to explore different areas in your house like your closet and even your laundry room. They enjoy tinkering with toys and that includes serious stuff mum and dad owns! Keeping them busy is definitely a task for the creative mind. Here are some things you can do to make the little one preoccupied.
Give them puzzles.

This will not only make them stay put for a while but also tests their brain development. Activities like this help them become more patient and learn to have critical thinking. Later on in life, they will thank you for teaching these skills.

A little sweeping the floor is already a big task for children. Teaching them this will make them feel like adults and they will learn how to keep their mess to a minimum. It’s nothing like child labour, I promise! Continue reading
As a consumer, you want to be sure of the products that you buy. You need to know that your money is being invested in items that will serve their purpose for as long as you need them. To ensure this, you need to refer to a list of requirements before finally making your purchase. From necessities to little luxuries, you have a range of considerations to make. These considerations become even weightier when the item in question is going to be used by your entire family — an item like a trampoline.
Trampolines can become an extraordinary investment. They’re not just an opportunity to be briefly airborne. Think about it. You and your spouse could use it to bond with the children. Your children could use it for their birthday parties. The entire family could use it as a fun, exhilarating, and creative way to get fit and shed a few pounds. With these in mind then, you would want to buy a high-quality trampoline — one that is proven to be safe and durable for everyone in your family to use. An ideal way to go about this is to scrutinise the trampoline parts built into the fun contraption.
Trampolines are assembled with the mat, the net, the pad, and the springs, or in the case of springless trampolines, with elastic bands. There are also accessories that you could get such as the ladder (which you should never leave on the trampoline when there are little kids about), weather covers (to keep it durable), and safety parts like the anchor kit (to hold it down securely when it’s windy).
When you’re inspecting the mat, look for heavy duty stitching. You’ll want to get a guarantee from the shop you’re buying from that the mat will hold up to the jumps and tricks your kids might perform on the trampoline. You’ll want to ask how many people the mat can accommodate at one time, how much weight it can take, and the length of time it takes before you need to replace it. Aside from the durability, make sure that the mat is UV-treated and has been tested for quality and safety by a relevant organisation.
As the year comes to an end, we make resolutions to become better persons, have better bodies and a lot more things. More often than not, we forget these resolutions days after we make them. For some, the New Year is the time to start anew – a clean slate. But in reality, anytime is the best time to have a fresh start.
No matter when you’ll decide to have it, the important thing is your purpose of finding your true self. Here are some things you can do to be your best self.

And do not count. If you give your neighbour a gift for Christmas, don’t expect anything in return. The best feeling in the world is being able to share your blessings.

A little movement in the body is necessary for a healthy life. You can take 30 minutes to jump on your backyard trampoline and you’re good for the day. Producing more endorphins make you a happier person, too!

Start your day with one everyday. It will affect your mood the entire day. It’s also contagious! 😉
It’s all about your insight about life. If you let negativity come your way, no change will ever happen. If there will be some change it’s not always going to be good. That’s why have some positivity and share your light.
Being a parent can be the best thing in the world but there are also some challenging times along the way. Not everyone has all the tricks in the world to keep their kids entertained or have them disciplined. It takes years and years to learn how to do both at the same time.
One of the things parents and their children need is a fun time together. You can’t always be disciplining them. You need to show them your fun side too! Your kids shouldn’t see you as someone dangerous to them but someone they can do things without fear. You know what’s the best way to show them you’re a fun person? Jumping on the trampoline, of course! Continue reading
Christmas is just a few weeks away and starting to buy the presents isn’t a bad idea. Why not start early than having to join the rush when you already have the time and freedom now? Besides, most of the sales start a month before anyway.
When you do your Christmas shopping, starting off with a list is good. Make one with all the names of the people you want to give gifts too. This will make it a quick and easy trip to the mall. Some people opt to go online shopping instead. This way you can send the gift directly to your loved one’s doorstep. Some retailers even offer free gift-wrappings. Isn’t that neat?
If you have zero to little idea what to give your loved ones this Christmas, here are some ideas.
- Portable Bluetooth speakers.

Your eldest son will love playing his favourite EDM tracks without having to plug his smartphone in. You know how kids are constantly on their phone, they just can’t live without it!
- Digital point-and-shoot camera.
Gone are the days people lug big cameras around. It can be such a hassle especially when you travel. This small camera works fine and is easier to use even for the elderly.
- Electric Coffee Mug.
We all know someone who’s constantly on the go. This coffee mug can be plugged in a car and the coffee stays hot throughout the car ride.
- Backyard Trampoline.
It’s the best toy for anyone and everyone at any age. It can be a kid’s jumping mat, mum’s yoga mat and dad’s physical therapy gym. Grandma and grandpa can even use it too. Definitely the best gift a family can receive.
- Warm Scarf.
Everyone needs a scarf for travels and the cold weather that’s arriving a few short months after Christmas. It’s a great accessory too.
