Top 10 ways to Create Awesome Memories
Don’t they just grow up fast! We know this more than anyone else. So let’s make these days ones to remember - we want to help you create moments that forge memories that last a lifetime. We asked a few Mums for their favourite ways to create special awesome childhood memories and they came back with some real gems! Don’t worry, these memories don’t have to be created by an extravagant fan fare of planned out vacations that cost an arm and a leg; we have compiled a list of 10 best ways to create awesome memories that fit in to a regular day.
Whatever you love from cooking to riding a Harley and anything in between, share it with your kids! There’s no guarantee that they will love it at the time but in these moments you’re teaching them the importance of being an individual and finding things that they like to do. They will thank you for it. Stevie from My Tribe of Six certainly does now.
An easy way to create memories is go for an adventure or explore together. The moments that our Mums remembered were the simple adventures with their Mums at the neighbourhood parks & beaches. Nothing like a bit of fresh air! Top trick, you can even turn a quick trip to the shops in to an adventure by taking the scooters.
Kids always remember their favourite meals that their Mum cooked and bring back home. So why not get them to help – there might be a few more dishes but the memories will be worth it. And who doesn’t love a bit of home baking they might even get to lick the bowl.
Scooting around is not only fun, it puts both you and your children on an even playing flied. With both of you on two wheels a race is never too far around the corner - not to mention it’s great for a bit of fitness as well.
"Spending time outdoors together, cooking and making music. My kids are obsessed with scootering. We walk pretty much everywhere so they always like to bring their scooters. We’ve been out and about on the cycle tracks and boardwalks, it’s been a lot of fun. The best thing is seeing how happy they are to be sharing the experience with me."

Time is the best gift. Make one on one time or special outings a priority every now and then. It’s much needed time to laugh, catch up and reconnect.
Double the fun! Join your children in their interests: they’ll be excited at the chance to share these moments with you, their smile will be worth it.

Reverse the roles! Let your child teach you something they will feel empowered and excited that they get to be the teacher plus they develop skills confidence and communication.
Get your creative juices flowing. Make a poster, build a plane even decorating a flower pot – it’s always fun if it’s something that they can use or hang up in their room!
Mindfulness is the word of the moment, but it is for a reason. Take a step back with your children from the stresses of the day, perhaps simply from technology. Reinvigorate with any activity that clears your head.
