We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

Parrot Toys

I love the fact that having a new pet to love
brings so many learning opportunities for the boys and for me.
They have observed parrots, in the wild and in books, and at the pet shops.
They have researched diet and behaviour, training and what will make Emerald happy.

They pick her special flowers and share their fruit with her, and if we see something she might like, they apply all of their persuasive powers to encourage me to see the necessity of Emerald having that item- lol.

In our cyber researching we have come across a couple of outstanding parrot resources.
The first one is The Parrot Rescue Centre These people are simply fabulous.

The Parrot Rescue Centre is dedicated in improving the lives of suffering, abused and unwanted pet parrots by providing an appropriate environment for their individual needs. One of our main aims is to educate as many people as possible on the correct diet, housing, enrichment and training of parrot

And the other great site is a super friendly and so informative bird forum - Smileys Birds Australia

With all of this inspirational research we have been inspired to make Emerald some new toys and have just placed an order for some nice bits and pieces from the Parrot Rescue Centre and will be on the look out for safe things to use.
