Tried a new local spot for lunch today. The chef is really cute and uses all natural ingredients. He takes cuddles as payment. Would highly recommend. Didn’t hubby do an amazing job with Arlo’s mud kitchen?!? He used two old pallets, a recycled sink along with a collection of kitchen Op shop finds. We even found a working tap!!!! Arlo cant get enough of his mud kitchen and I’m so grateful to have this outdoor space at home while we are currently in lockdown.
Who else has been doing daily walks with their family? I’ve never seen so many families out walking together. It’s pretty special to see! I love how kind people are being, crossing to make sure they are keeping a safe distance. Giving a friendly wave or hello as we past them. It’s these kind gestures that show that we are in this together 🥰 And...with next to no traffic it means you can do tiktok’s in the middle of the road and entertain your neighbours 😝 Swipe across if you’re in need of some entertainment too!
Quarantine activity: 235 😂 Here’s proof that water play doesn’t have to be messy! I simply filled a few ziplock bags with coloured water and stuck them to the window with some tape. Easy peasy sensory play that encourages movement and great for visual attention! If your ever looking for more inspiration I have two highlights in my stories. One for baby play and also one for toddler play full of different activities that I do with Arlo.
On day 8 we built a fort! This quarantine life, is just not bad 😏 Anyone else moved the bed into the lounge room or built a fort with the kiddies?! ⛺️ #jkphotochallenge
Our very own hero! It’s hard sharing the person we love with the rest of the world. To all the other healthcare workers who are showing up to each shift, protecting and saving lives, leaving your family for someone else’s, working long hours and pushing yourself physically and emotionally. We see you. Thank you. Your family understands the world needs you too but we miss you and love you the most ✨ #healthcareheroes
Quarantine activity: 103 😂 4 weeks at home with the kiddo’s! You’ve got this Mumma!! So what to do with the kids at home? I’ll be sharing some of my easy free play ideas on here over the next few weeks....Like... how about a ballon party!!!! Chuck on some music and fill your lounge room with ballons. Seriously, this will keep them entertained for AGES! 🎈
Our Montessori home tour is now live on the blog! While most people are stuck at home I thought it would be a good time to share a little project I’ve been working on in our home. • I am a Montessori kid myself and recently purchased @themontessorinotebook to refresh my memory and apply the Montessori theory in my own home to help me lead and support Arlo. Hopefully this will help give you a visual of our home and how I have set up Montessori spaces for Arlo. Here’s a little peak at how I have set up our bathroom, to see more of the spaces I have set up head over to www.jessieandjake.com (link in profile)
This is what washing baskets were really made for 😝💦 Bath time outside with our @littledragonskincare We’ve been using this brand since Arlo was a newborn. Good news is that you can still get it delivered to your home during this time in quarantine. Even better news is that you can use code JESSIE15 for 15% off! #shoplocal #supportsmallbusiness
Quarantine crew 👊 Probably wearing sweats for the next four weeks, eating loads of snacks and watching way too much Disney Plus...Sooo...Basically our normal routine 🙈😝 Stay safe and be kind NZ 👊
Who needs plates?! We love a pancake board, cheese board, salad board.....pretty much any meal that can be constructed at the table to everyones personal preference! We can now add a bagel board to our list! The best part? Its all only one dish so there's very little clean up! It’s time to get on board ... Get it! 😝🤣
“Quarantine? What quarantine? You mean my everyday life?!” Stay at home mums everywhere 🙌😝🙌
NEW BROWS, WHO DIS? Ever considered cosmetic tattooing? But don’t really know what’s it’s all about?! Check out my IG stories! So excited that I get to wake up to these brows EVERYDAY! How beautiful did these combination eyebrows done by @pro_brows_bynicole turn out?! 👏
