Shopping for tween & teen girls -- some favourite brands
While it felt like a very slow and steady journey into adolescence for my boys, it appeared to happen completely overnight for Ivy! I don't know if this is a difference between boys and girls, but for Ivy it has certainly been a huge year of growing and changing quickly. She will turn 12 in ...

Get reading with Storytime Magazine!
The other day I was saying to my husband: we really should find some more gripping things to read for Fergus, our seven-year-old son. His sisters love reading and being read to, but our boy, well… he could use a little bit of encouragement. It must have been a sign --  Esther, the next day, ...

Banana Boxers, the best boxer-shorts for all of the boys!
You know how we sometimes love the mummy-and-me styles? Well, it turns out that guys love daddy-and-me items equally so! Last Christmas, I got all of my boys matching Banana Boxers undershorts and they were the biggest hit. Pim and Casper (and Bram!) really embraced the fact that they got their own 'big boy underwear' ...

Fabulous fall fashion from The Simple Folk
Fall is here! Last week we enjoyed perhaps the last summery days in Amsterdam, but since then the autumn chill is definitely in the air.

Clothing allowance -- when, and how much to give?
A few months ago we started giving Sara a clothing allowance. She is now 15 years old, and it seemed appropriate to start giving her some financial independence and ownership of her choices concerning style and fashion. With the decision of giving her 'clothing money', as we say here in The Netherlands, came the immediate ...

How does your garden grow? Spring provides the perfect opportunity to embrace growing both flowers and vegetables with children. Whether you have a garden, window box space or a small ledge inside, children can learn so much from the experience of growing something themselves. It can really demonstrate to them exactly how the process of photosynthesis works as well as help with learning the cycle of how a little seed can flourish and then be used to create something delicious! Emma tells us how wonderful it is to grow ! “We love growing our own tomatoes and then enjoying tasty bruschettas and rich tomato sauces for both pasta and pizza. It is remarkably simple and the children absolutely love the process of watching the seeds grow. It also teaches them patience (whilst waiting for the tomatoes to grow), resilience (when things do not go quite as planned) and of course helps with embracing all nature has to offer.” Link in bio for her best tips. @the_flourisher_ #babyccinokids #babyccinoeats

Start collecting and pressing Spring flowers as you go on walks and little wanders. A collection can make the most special monogrammed letter. It’s a simple task and a satisfying project and it will mean so much to the grandparent, mother, sister, friend, spouse, or newborn baby that receives it. Great for birthdays, christenings, showers, anniversaries, and really any celebration of a loved one! See this post from @laraoflondon! Link in bio. #babyccinokids #banyccinocrafts
