Hi there, my name is Nadia and I am a Mom to three wonderful kids. I have a passion for childhood education and love creating intentional learning opportunities at home. 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 fun 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 simple activities that you can easily replicate at home (in a classroom setting) and printable activities that should minimize the prep for you. I also love to to share parenting tips, parenting reflections and 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.
Want to work with Fun With Mama?
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.
My interests: I love kids activities, home organization ideas, photography, computers, reading books and anything tech related.
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.
About my kids:
I have three kids ages 10, 8 and 3! 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.

About My Photography
I am often asked this question so i fugred it would just be a lot easier if I post about it here.
What do I use to take pictures with? I have a DSLR Canon 5D Mark III. I shoot pictures both with my DSLR and my Iphone 6+.
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 (I have the first version of this one.)
Where did you learn to take pictures on your DSLR? My favorite place filled with the most wonderful information and classes is definitely ClickinMoms. It is a wonderful community and I am so happy to be a part of it. Check it out and try a free trial!
