1. Free Food?
Do you ever ‘glean’ food from secret spots? We have a secret apple tree that we visit each year on the side of a quiet country road. We pick apples till our arms hurt and then go home and make every apple recipe ever. This free food experiment in Seattle looks cool… I wonder if it will work?
Have you signed up for My Poppet’s Lucky Draw Project? I am loving getting a little surprise each month in the form of a colouring page created by a cool Aussie illustrator. I have my eye on a few I particularly like to frame and hang, once my walls are finished!
I need to make these Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins from Sally’s Baking Addiction, except without the Nutella. Maybe I’ll try stuffing ours with raspberry jam?
4. Growing Up
My girls seem to be growing up before my eyes… and I don’t mean in a ‘aren’t they tall’ kind of way, but more of a ‘oh crap here comes the teenage years’ kind of way. I’m still trying to adjust my world view and get my head around the fact that one day I will be a parent of teenagers. I’ve already said I am not ready, but I am working on it and this post from The Natural Parents Network might help – 5 Easy Ways to Connect With Teens.
5. Artchoo! Bless You!
I’ve just discovered this beautiful blog fully of art inspiration and ideas for kids and adults. If you or your kids have a hankering to be creative pop over and check out Artchoo. Jeanette’s pinterest boards are gorgeous too!
In the past I have had a bit of an obsession with making printable puppets for my kids, and, of course, sharing them with all of you. So far we’ve made six sets of puppets… and I think it’s time for a new set. Have you got any ideas? Any favorite kid songs or stories you’d love to see made into printable puppets?
Got some random thoughts to share? Perhaps you’ve come across a fab recipe online? Maybe you’ve written a blog post you’re particularly proud of? Please pop over to my facebook page or my google + profile and add your link to the Six on Saturday post!

Love your links – thanks for some interesting things to explore on the weekend. I’ll put in a vote for puppets for 5 cheeky monkeys (teasing the crocodile).

The Olympic swimming pool near Miss E’s school has a massive banana passion fruit vine so every few days I’ve been doing a drive-by waiting for them to ripen! We got heaps of them last year and feasted!!
We have to avoid Nutella in the house because of nut allergies, but you could fill the muffins with Philadelphia chocolate spread (no nuts, really tasty!) or I have made cinnamon coated muffins before and filled with lemon curd. Oh my gosh they are so good, like slightly less guilty versions of donuts!
I’ve now signed up to the Lucky Project too – thanks :)
Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to try out the Nutella cinnamon muffins. Yummo!
