Hi there, my name is Nadia and I am a Mom to three wonderful kids. I love creating memorably moments for us to share as a family. Besides going on family adventures around the world, I also have a passion for childhood education and enjoy creating intentional learning opportunities at home. On Fun With Mama, you get a glimpse into my life as a mother. Each of my social media accounts shows you a different side of what being a mother means to me.
Check out my social media accounts here:
Learning + Teaching
As a parent (and teacher at heart) I can relate to many of your challenges as well as the many perks of having children at home (or at school.) I find that teaching children between the ages of 2 to 10 is extremely rewarding and a lot of fun. Plus, you really don’t need a degree in teaching to be able to connect with your children through these simple activities at home.
Children at this age learn through their five senses and their imagination is at it’s peak. I know that Mom’s (and teachers) today are busy and need simple educational activities and ideas. I try my best to create activities that you can easily replicate at home (or in a classroom setting)
Family Travel and Adventures
As a family we love to travel, with over 50 flights under our belts with children, I enjoy sharing my travel tips and secrets with readers. Family holiday’s are a great way to connect with your children and I love sharing fun places we go to as well as what we did to make the trip more enjoyable for our family. We have also begun to incorporate a lot of video reviews and vlogs on our travel experiences.
What you will find on Fun With Mama
On my blog, you will find different blog posts that relate to motherhood and family life.
These include: kids fashion ideas, educational activities, printable activity packs, parenting tips, home organization, family lifestyle, favorite books, local Southen California activities for kids, family vacation ideas ,travel experiences, product reviews and even my favorite quotes.
I love connecting with other moms and teachers. I hope to inspire mothers to have as much fun as they can with their children while they are still young. These moments are fleeting. Make the best of them. I want to show Mom’s how easy it is to actually create intentional learning opportunities for their child while bonding with their kids. I want my children to look back on these years and remember that I tried to create magic for them and that I enjoyed every single moment of their childhood and love. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to e-mail me at anytime! I truly love connecting with my readers.

I am a Southern California mom blogger, but more importantly a mother of 3 who inspire me to reach for my dreams! I was born and raised in America (California to be exact) for 17 years before moving to South Africa and meeting my future husband. I lived in South Africa for approximately 10 years before relocating back to the USA with a husband and three kinds in tow.
I am constantly taking new photography classes and you can see my growth through my blog’s pictures, especially through Fun With Mama’s Instagram.

Traveling with children tips
About my kids:
I have three kids ages 11, 9 and 4! My children are my product testers and are an integral part of Fun With Mama! They inspire the magic in me. I love spending time with them, teaching them and encouraging them to reach for their dreams. I am a firm believer that you can only grow as high as you aim to reach. One day, when my children are reading this I want them to know that this blog was inspired by and dedicated to them. They allowed me to find my own dreams, they encourage me to reach higher and they celebrate each milestone and goal we reach. As they grow older I am always taken aback by their own unique ideas and twists. They are honest in their reviews and love sharing with other families what they liked and didn’t like about activities and products. I am amazed to see how each of them can now responsibly set up activities for each other too.
You can find my children’s YouTube channel: Fun With Mama’s Kids YouTube Channel. This channel is geared towards children ages 2-12. This will include videos where they are together. On this channel you will find fun science experiments

About My Photography
I am often asked this question so i figured it would just be a lot easier if I post about it here. These are affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.
Which lenses do I use? That is a great question. My 24-70 L II Lens pretty much lives on my camera but I do change it up and use my other lenses too.
I currently own the following Lenses:
Canon Lenses: EF 50mm f/1.4 | EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM | Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 II (I have the second version of this one.) |
