- TRIGGER WARNING - this post may contain content which some readers may find distressing 😉 . On stories today, I mentioned that we had an announcement to make... for 8 weeks, beginning July 27th through until September 21st, The Small Folk will be closed, as our little tribe will be travelling the north-eastern states of Australia. We are SO excited for our trip and cannot wait to share our daily adventures will you all, but this unfortunately means we will be unable to fulfil any store orders during this time. The great news is, that during the next 6 weeks before we leave, most items will be entirely restocked - beginning tomorrow night with our enormous felt range! Set your alarms for 5.30pm, as the following items will be back in store, and won't be available again until we return mid-September: • felt alphabets (15 available) • the entire fruit and vegetable collection • pizzas, sushi, fish & chips and sandwich sets • river play mats, mossy mats, platypus ponds and duck ponds • pine trees and baobab trees • teepees and campfires • toadstools and rocks • strawberry, pumpkin and teapot houses & • rainbow gnomes If there is anything in particular that you need prior the store closing, please let us know and we'll do our very best to get it in for you, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask ☺️ . How beautiful is this image by @onwillowsbend, using our felt alphabet and crayon resist painting to reveal new sight words. Thank you for sharing this little slice of magic with us ✨ . #thesmallfolkstore #thesmallfolk #felttoys #feltalphabet #alphabet

- Another day, another huge delivery! 📦 We've just jumped on and restocked a stack of sold out items, including our much loved wooden paint holder sets, which flew out the door just a few weeks ago! Here is a full run down of the items now available: • ANIMAL PLAY: piglets, lambs, ducks, horses, roosters, white hens, donkeys, swans, deers, squirrels and giraffe babies • BLOCK PLAY: natural blocks, coloured blocks and cave stackers • KITCHEN PLAY: clothes lines and brooms • CREATE: 3 and 6 jar paint holders, large journals and pencil cases As well as the full collection of sandpit tools, some felt balls and one sneaky little piki basket I found hidden away! Just in case you missed our restock announcement last night, our entire felt range was replenished, including our hugely popular fruits and vegetables and most small world play items. For those who ordered last night, I'll be packing your orders tomorrow, so feel free to grab items tonight and I'll combine them with what you already have. Just use the code 'localgypsy' and your second round of shipping will be removed. Happy Friday lovely ones! 💛 . #thesmallfolkstore #thesmallfolk

- Just recently, I've realised that meal planning needs to become a major priority within our family unit. Although it's something we've done well in the past, our current home/school/work/store/life juggle has pushed this element further and further down the to-do list. Our present "plan" of a week here and a week there, every so often, really isn't working for us and I know we have the potential to save a fortune on our weekly (daily 🙈) grocery bill - not to mention saving our own sanity come 5pm! When we DO plan our meals in advance, I've noticed there is a significant reduction in the amount of food we waste, and the flow from those sometimes frantic afternoon hours, into the evening, is all the more calm with this preparedness. A few weeks ago, some of you mentioned you were interested in the types of meals we share as a family, and also some examples of snacks that our kids love to eat. I'm the first to admit that cooking is most definitely not my forte, and is the one thing I feel least confident about in my role as mother and wife - but that's probably all the more reason to share - keeping me accountable and pushing me to try new things, as well as document the go-to, fail-safe options that we all adore. Tell me, are you a meal planner? Weekly/fortnightly/monthly? And what rhythms have you put into place within your family to ensure this remains a priority? .
