Life with pre-schoolers
Thoughts on life with a pre-schooler from some familiar faces. What a typical day’s like, what’s to love, the challenging stuff, and musings in hindsight, from those who’ve been there.
Changing the colour of a flower
A transformation using transpiration!
Blowing up balloons with air pressure
No need to huff and puff to blow balloons up; let an empty bottle do it for you!
Bending water with static electricity
Did you know you can bend water without touching it? Strange, but true!
Making a lava lamp
You have to agree … lava lamps are pretty groovy!
Looking for something gloopy and slimy? Look no further!
It can be hard to find the time to eat together as a family but there are plenty of reasons why it’s great to gather around the table as often as possible. Your kids will tend to eat a wider variety of foods and have better table manners for starters!
Here Ben and Jude whip up a family favourite – pulled pork on homemade sliders, with kid-friendly coleslaw.
Garden to plate
Ben makes yummy tomato soup using fresh tomatoes from his garden, which he tops with (freshly-picked) green bean salad and a cottage cheese toasty. Fresh and tasty!
Meals without meat
Want to cook more meat-free meals but lack inspiration? Ben puts a vegetarian spin on a couple of family favourites – bolognese and lasagna.
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Ben’s choice for kick-starting his family’s day? Oats, in the form of muesli and porridge.
