As soon as I saw these sweet girl's hair accessories from Maggie & Em, "sugar and spice and all things nice, that's what little girls are made of" popped into my mind. Do you remember that rhyme too? These beautiful clips and hair ties took me straight back to my Grade 1 school photo which involved little curls tied up in pigtails. I can't remember what was holding them in, but I'd like to imagine...

One of my favourite things watching children grow up is that time when they speak up and say "THIS is my style." and then tell you how they want to dress or want their room to look. Those moments when they ask questions and suggest something different to what we've always done make my heart swell because I want them to do that. I want them to challenge me and what has always been as...

Who else thinks this bear pictured is simply fabulous? Titled "Tell me when you're ready" this bear is part of an installation currently on display in the Federation Court at NGV International by Italian artist Paola Pivi. There are eight of these bears, each adorned in neon-coloured feathers and posing or frolicking in a way that makes you smile. When I saw these bears a few weeks ago, I was amazed to hear from the Senior...

Last time I did a lovely list of rooms, there were five but I found that when it came to my most favourite colour combination ever - pink and grey - I couldn't stop at that number because it would mean leaving one of these lovely rooms out. It was hard enough to only choose seven! Let's pretend I chose one dream room for each day of the week as we look through kids rooms...

A couple months ago I was driving to an event when I spotted this little piece of Melbourne street art. I couldn't help being drawn to this girl, with her messy hair, long dress and bare feet. It was an instant flashback to my own childhood, the difference being that my first bike was canary yellow, like those little flowers she's riding towards. The weeds growing from the pavement around her and the cracks in...

When decorating rooms for children, the traditional hues of baby blue and pink - and sometimes yellow - may spring to mind and it can be tempting to steer clear of those colours in the search for something that feels more grown up and stylish. Today I'm sharing five spaces that I think show how you can use these colours to create absolutely beautiful pink and blue kids rooms that they won't grow out of...

Today on tiny & little we're dipping into the archives to bring you an article by Caroline Roberts of Gardening 4 Kids, a business that encourages children to be outdoors having fun in the garden whilst learning about living a healthy and sustainable life. Caroline spoke with us about little ones getting involved in growing food and shared gardening with kids tips you can try at home, and our latest book review has inspired us...

Have you met Herbert Peabody? If you haven't, allow us to introduce this delightful character who will charmingly teach little ones about their food in the kids book Herbert Peabody and His Extraordinary Vegetable Patch. We met Herbert Peabody at Mulberry Tree Farm, where he tends to his big fruit and vegetable garden and supplies fresh food to the local area which he grows with a dash of magical singing, and it was all kinds...

It has been a while since we shared a party here on tiny & little. Have you missed them as much as we have?! Today we're stepping back in time to one of the lost issues of tiny & little magazine for inspiration to throw a farm fiesta that has me smiling as much today as it did then. The flowers, the chickens, the tractor rides! It's a beautiful children's birthday party put together by...

The lovely ladies over at Culture Mamas, who host events to nourish the minds of parents with art and culture, have started a wonderful new series called Mama Circles. They're creative conversations over lunch that mamas and papas can come along to, with their little ones, to hear about a creative topic then have a discussion with the speaker. I went to last month's session when Di Hilyear from the National Gallery of Victoria spoke...
