Lockdown Lives: Gabi Gandolfini

this event has no time specified

What to expect

Gabi Gandolfini wears many hats: mum-of-two, blogger and Disney connoisseur, to name a few! Originally from Brazil, she moved to the UK when she was 19 and has been living here ever since. Gabi's an expert in how to do Disney like a pro - especially with young kids, and has loads of resources available if you're hoping to do the same. Her Instagram is filled with vibrant photos, tips on travelling with kids, and tons of positive parenting authenticity.

With lockdown changing family life in almost every way, with her kids out of school, Gabi made the decision not to stick to a strict homeschooling curriculum during this time. As so many of us are attempting to homeschool our children, we're excited to hear about this refreshing approach to lockdown learning. Every parent knows their child best and it's up to you to find the best learning routine for them, so it's always interesting to hear how different parents are tackling this particular time. In Kidadl's Lockdown Lives, she'll be explaining why she made this choice and what her alternative take on homeschooling has looked like over the past few months. She'll be stressing the importance of listening to your child and paying attention to their ideas in order to plan out the activities for the day.

Catch Gabi in a live Q&A on the Kidadl Instagram page on Thursday 14th May at 5pm, where she'll be giving all her alternative homeschooling tips and talking about how her life has changed since being in lockdown. Don't miss it!

At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.

We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.

Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.

Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
