DIY- GUESS WHO IS WHO

Guess who is who was one of my favorite games when I was little. I spent hours trying to guess the character the other player had chosen.

Is it a boy or a girl? Has he blue eyes? Is she wearing a hat?

This easy diy will take it back for you and your children. Do you want to try?

best books about outdoor activities with kids + a game

I remember my chilhood days, always running outside with my friends. Our legs and later, our bicycles, were our best adventure friends. Nowadays we live in a city and my kids are rising without contact with Nature. This is the reason why I began the search for the best books about outdoor activities with kids.

I have made a selection, some of them are in English and other in Spanish, but we hope the language will not be a problem, because nature speaks a unique language, the language of freedom. 

We wish these books help our family to get back outside. If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure this spring or summer, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this post.

PARIS KIDS city guide by MILK magazine

When most of my friends think on Paris with kids, DISNEYLAND PARIS is what it comes to their mind.

But this is not my idea of Paris with kids. What I really want is showing them the Madeleine Church, wander accross Montmartre streets and squares or  sit down and enjoy the time passing by in my favorite square: Place des Vosgues, a place where time seems to have stopped.

I want to show them the spectacular city views from the top of l’Arc du triumph, to buy a book in Shakespeare & Co bookstore and read it afterwards in Shakespeare & Co Café. I want to show them the impressive Eiffel tower, to follow the aroma of a croissant or a pain au chocolat and taste a hot chocolate at ANGELINA. It will be wonderful to join the  TILT KIDS art festival and  stare at the windows of any department store during Christmas. And of course, to touch the gargles on the top of Notre Dame and make a treasure hunt at the LOUVRE museum organized by THATMuse. 

Paris is a magical city! If you are going to Paris with kids, I would you follow the recommend addresses included in the brand new PARIS KIDS city guide published by MILK magazine.

ENJOY, LEARNING IS FUN

THE KID SHOULD SEE THIS blog

You know that around here we are always looking to approach our interests and inquisitiveness to our little ones. We do not believe in a world for kids, but in kids living the same world as we do and enjoying it.

I recently read an article with declarations from actress Reese Witherspoon where she states that the media world, and maybe the world in general, does not understand the full spectrum of the female experience.

If I have to define myself, I do not want to use mum as my first and only attribute, and this is definitively  how I want my children to perceive it.  I am an engineer, a traveler, a curious person, a photography addict, a continuous learner, a mum, and many other things that define myself at the same level, without having to choose only one or categorising one in front of the other.

We do not believe in tags: “mum’s blogs, kid’s content“, but in opening our mind to everything that can interest us and fulfill our needs to learn. As Reese says: “Women want real substance and premium thought-provoking, well-made content” . I will add that men and children need that too. No genders, race or age involved in such predicament.

This is why I want to introduce you Rion Nakaya, a design director, video producer and lifelong learner who loves storytelling, sustainable tech, well-designed spaces, and wandering the halls of small science museums. She is mum of 2 kids and founder of TKSST (The Kid Should See This) a video blog with content that children love, but that it has not been developed with them in mind. You are going to love it!

Come and see.

London with kids: The best resources to plan your trip

Londres-con-niños-urbanexplorer-cuteandkids-blog

London is huge. It’s made up of 32 boroughs and each has its own identity: from the hipster East in Hackney, to the touristy West End in the City of Westminster.

I really love this city. We’ve been in London manytimes, but soon will be the first time we will go with kids. That’s the reason why I am looking for the best plans for visiting London with kids.

GOOGLE LENS, GOOGLE MAPS and the helpful red guiding fox

GUIDING-FOX-GOOGLE-MAPS-AUGMENTED-REALITY-CUTEANDKIDS-BLOG

Today I was discussing with some friends that the world is changing so  fast, that it will arrive a moment when I will not able to follow what is going on. Sometimes I feel so exhausted, that I think about one of Mafalda’s famous quotes: “Stop the world that I want to get off!”.

Growing up, I remember my father telling my mum in the car:  Josefa, take the map and look how we can get to… 

And now, thirty years later, 30 yeats that have gone like thunder, I am reading about AR, and how a cute red fox will guide me through Madrid in an app installed in my own smartphone. If you stop for a moment to think about it, it seems crazy, doesn’t it?

ENJOY, MUSEUMS&ART

Ordrupgaard Museum- Art Playground 2018

Do you remember Alice in Wonderland? Alice fell into the hole under the hedge and woke up in a magical garden, full of funny creatures and an amazing new landscape.

This is exactly how my children feel when we visit the gardens of the Ordrupgaard Museum in Charlottenlund, a city 8 km north of Copenhagen. A magical Wonderland appears under the trees: a pine cone house, a gigantic mushroom, a mirror where you can see yourself reflected forever and their favorite one: Olafur Eliasson’s Vær i vejret (Weather the Weather), a ring that emits a gust of fog depending where the wind blows. Magical, believe me.

Now they will inaugurate two new works in the park and I fear my children will want to move there forever.
