I dedicate this article to the healthiest activity of the world. It has the power to unite persons of all ages, races, religions, sexes, beliefsystems, it doesn't judge mental or physical conditions.
This activity transformed my life when I was diagnosed with breastcancer and became a "pink" girl. It also gave the biggest possibility to my child of expressing herself without words. Both of us could simply BE ourselves in doing it. Many people with me are involved in doing it, advocating it, LOVING it.
Our days in summer were filled with play. It was a wonderful time in the Netherlands at grandma's and grandpa's house, it gave us the possibility to do many crafts and playtime together. The free moments made me reflect on who I am and why I choose to play in my life.
My favorite craft of this summer, was designed and made by Chanel and me. Especially for the person who signed up first to my Newsletter.
The lucky winner was Aline Bitencourt from Brazil! But soon there will be more special products made by the love team, stay tuned:)

We want to guide our children in becoming independent beings. Able to live confident about themselves outside the safe walls of home or school. A way of supporting our children in the going outside is to talk with them about the good and the bad.
Sometimes it's said that fairy tales are images of life, reflections of the world around us. Simply look at the news and you see the centuries old struggle between good and evil. Life shows us good and beautiful and on the other hand, like in fairy tales the bad and ugly. In stories the good is described as the winner, while the bad is something wrong.
Ik ben erg enthousiast over het boek 'Spelend in beweging' van Angelique Felix. Ik kwam het bij toeval tegen en gebruik de spelen uit het boek zeer regelmatig bij de speelochtenden voor ouders, grootouders en kids van 0-4 jaar die we in het buurtcentrum organiseren.
