In light of Australia's first ever loneliness awareness week. I thought it would be a good time to have our guest Jess from Darkwood Counselling jump in and write a blog post. Jess has a passion for working with women and in particular the complex journeys that we take from bump to beyond into motherhood.
Please jump over to www.darkwoodcounselling.com to get in touch with Jess if you would like to chat with her. Jess is available in person, via phone or zoom for your time together.
I like to keep our colour scheme neutral and soft, this allows timber or painted furniture pieces to flow in the space. To add depth you can add texture, patterns or colour tones. Add these to bed linen or prints on the wall, I’m about to introduce a wall colour but it will be soft and still tie all our pieces together. One of my favourite things in my home that I’ve used in several rooms are the long wooden hanging hooks, we hang our favourite pieces including hats, baskets, dresses, bags. It’s almost like a work of art and keeps the eye interested.
There are so many fun experiences for children in nature. Nature play is time spent playing outdoors in nature. True nature play is free and unstructured play that is led completely by the child. Why not try some of these ideas with your little ones.
- Go on a nature scavenger hunt. Use materials from nature such as seed, rocks and leaves to make interesting patterns and art and craft projects
- Enjoy a muddy puddle, yes! Ge muddy! Try make mud pies and mud castles.
And what’s even better…. Nature play is really simple!!
