Banting Roti Recipe banting roti

Our 10 years sailing the 7 seas on cruise ships, and Hunky Hubby being a chef, means I feel the need to be innovative with very little time and virtually no patience. A favourite in my home are Fajitas….quick to prep, fun to eat and versatile. Having eating fajitas in Mexico and Puerto Rico, these come pretty close and my 5 year old princess loves them too!

Junk to Joy: DIY Cutie Critters 

It’s  amazing how much joy can come from household “junk”.

We used:
Empty egg cartons

Pipe cleaners

Glue

Paper 

Crayons

Scissors 

Stapler

Wool

Add a gorgeous  4 year old to the mix and you have hours of fun!

Method:

Colour paper and cut into strips or wrap wool around the carton rounds. Secure with glue or a stapler and decorate using crayons. Stick pipe cleaners in as legs and you are done!

Rachy spent the next 2 hours introducing her new critter to nature! Pure joy!

Enjoy!!!

Movie Review: Norm of the North (Ster Kinekor)

Rachy’s 4th birthday (which was on the 24th of Jan) celebrations began on the 23rd of January (1 day after the release date of this movie) with a viewing of the new movie Norm of the North.

Splash entertainment definitely made waves with this movie which focuses on a very unique and feisty polar bear who is not only dealing with fitting in, but also with a unique gift – he can talk to humans.

His adventures take us all the way to New York to save the Artic and the story is really held together by 3 very adorable, indestructible little side kicks who literally had me giggling throughout!

Great for kids, entertaining for adults with a feel good element that focuses on family, embracing your uniqueness and doing the right thing.

Lots of adult humour unnoticed to the little ones adds some spark for the parents!

Rachy loved the movie and only really got restless the last 40 minutes or so
which is quite a record. Even then she had her eyes glued to the screen while she climbed all over me!

Great service as always from the Ster Kinekor staff at Cresta Shopping Centre! Take their new special which includes popcorn, candy, a free kids cup and a milkshake (she had the strawberry) instead of the syrupy drink for under R60!

Rachy was dressed to impress, pretty in pink – a princess in every way!!! She nibbled her way through all the popcorn and half the milkshake! Yum!!!

Take your kids to this one. They might even learn a thing or two about the landscape and animals that make up the polar bear’s natural habitat.

Remember to book the love seat!!!

Happy watching!
