Drawing Prompts for Inspiration
Use the Instagram #365Mumtastic daily prompts as inspiration for your child’s drawings: “What can I draw, Mum?” Try giving them the daily prompt – then take a photo of their creation for the Instagram community to see!
Connecting with others
Bake Muffins: Make one batch of Carrot and Quinoa Muffins for afternoon tea for the kids and take the second batch around to an elderly neighbour. Stop in for a chat.
Picnic: Call a friend and ask if she’s free for lunch then take around a picnic to enjoy with her and her kids.
