Adventures at Home with Mum is moving to Creative educational Play

Hey there, Hello Lovely Readers. Long time since I have written anything but I have some awesome news that I know you will love. I just wanted to fill you in on what I have been up to lately. I have had a long blogging break as some may have noticed, I continued studying my Post-Graduate in Psychology, started Managing my Husbands Company more and invested in a new farm running Black Angus Cattle.  Dimples is now 7 and Little Miss is 3.

But the Best thing is that I had a long break from Social media and now I am back, refreshed and have started a new website.

I would love you all to join me at Creative Educational Play Australia. I am hoping to continue on our Adventures over on that website but in a much more focused way. I will be striving for quality, not quantity. I would love to inspire parents, grandparents and educators to be creative and playful with their children. Mainly though,  I hope to develop a supportive community of like-minded soles who will join me & others on this journey.

I still have the same Pinterest here, But a new Facebook Page Here . So update your Facebook "like" and keep updated with the new Adventures.

You can read more about my new focus by following this link .



I would like to Welcome you to my new Page and I really hope you continue to follow our adventures by joining me there and on Social media again. I would love to have people commenting, sharing, reading and interacting with fellow readers & myself, sharing related early childhood inspiration, opinions and ideas so that we all can grow on this adventure together.

Happy Adventures & I will See you there xx

Interactive Colouring-in characters with Crayola Color Alive


Product review- Crayola Color Alive.

Crayola is changing a child's way of colouring in with color Alive and its virtual colouring effects.  The colouring-in books look like a classic book, lots of cool pictures with details characters to customize, plenty for a child to have fun with.  However there is something really special about these books.
Here are some pics of how we had fun using the Color Alive range, and what I really think of it...

Capturing the imagination, creativity and focus of children (and adults).

Customize.
Color Alive combines colouring with a 4D interactive experience. The colourer-inner, aka creative child can customize their picture using any combination of the colours and then bring their picture to life in a 4D app.   The anticipation for bringing a character or creature to life is really engaging. I found that Dimples coloured in so much more detail and he was focused for much longer than he usually would be. All because he really wanted to create his own pet.



Transform.
Watching the Colouring in that they just completed transform with a spinning magical portal, they'll see their design and creation transform into a 4D figure above their page. They have their own theme music and virtual tricks. They move and make sounds and have fun little individual characteristics.  Dimples eyes widened as he seen the "portal" and all the magical effects before his pet dragon appeared.




Interact.
Children can bring Characters to Life, bringing them off of their drawing and then can interact with the characters, take ‘selfies’ with them, tickle them, play or poke them.  They can also be saved as your own pets or characters for use anywhere, any time, with or without the colouring in page.  Here Miss T laughed at her Medusa sitting on her head, and put it on a forest play mat.  "Snake lady looks real there" she giggled...



Dimples was so excited to show his pop his creation, and they had lots of fun taking selfies of the dragon sitting in the palm of his hand, on his shoulder and on his head.  You could get really clever with this and do some trick photography.  Hey!! That gives me an idea... Stay tuned to my Instagram.




Special effects.
Children will love the "elements" that the characters and creatures represent.  The new books by Crayola contain a set of special crayons can even create virtual Colouring Effects; Special Effects Crayon  add animated effects such as comic symbols, fire, ice sparkles and pixie dust.  Can you see the REAL fire on Dimples Dragon picture below? Pretty amazing really.  Then he used his dragon pet in a balancing act and poked it for a while as it sit above his page.


The products RRP for $7.99 each and are available from all good leading retailers.  The Colouring in pack includes six Crayons, one Special Effects Crayon, 16 Action Coloring Pages, and a FREE app download that makes it all so much fun. 

If you want to check out how amazing it really is, social media #CrayolaAU

I would definitely recommend them, and I would say any child would love one of these magical books as a gift! They are fantastic and really have to be experienced to be appreciated.

Happy Adventures  :)
