365 Learn and Play Recommended Resources

Here you’ll find recommended resources for kids learning, play activities and parenting. I’ve also included some links to learn about inspiring kids and adults.

Parenting is hard work. Here are some high-quality parenting resources that are helpful and easy to digest:

  • A Fine Parent has practical articles on positive parenting as well as master classes
  • Motherwell talks about parenting challenges and advice in a genuine way
  • Just in Time is an excellent free resource. You can sign up for free newsletters that cover each month of a child’s development from prenatal to years 4 and 5

These are a few of my favourite online resources for learning ideas.

  • Acorns and Aprons This nature inspired home school website has beautiful inspiration for learning outdoors
  • Mini Mad Things I love this Australian blog! They have so many inspiring process craft ideas
  • Teachers pay Teachers Did you know that you can access free resources on this site? Just type in your area of interest and filter for “free”. There are lots of quality materials to use with your children.
  • Kathryn @cardboardfolk on Instagram has amazing ideas for using cardboard in play and art
