Planning a party for one is
already a lot of work, let alone
when you have twins! Keeping
both (or more!) happy in one go
can be challenging. But luckily
there are a lot of reasourses on
the internet to make this easier.
This month we will take a look
at a couple of possible themes
for multiples that could keep even the pigeon pairs happy! Also
some tips for saving some money along the way.
Kind Regards

folded (origami) from scrapbooking paper. Went to Lory Park
Zoo for the morning. At 2 she was more aware and wanted
Hello Kitty (big party and homebaked Hello Kitty cake and
cupcakes). This year we didn’t do a party as it was too close

invited our friends around for boerewors rolls:-)

ADD/ADHD Workshop
SAMBA presented an ADD/ADHD workshop on 03 August 2013 at the
LIFE CARSTENHOF CLINIC in Midrand. 14 people attended the workshop
which was lead by
Tia Bosua Gruenenfelder.
The following topics were discussed:
• What do we understand under ADD/ADHD
• Identification
• Medication Alternatives
• Parental Guidance: persistent persuasion
Some people’s children were already diagnosed with ADHD and some people just suspected ADHD with their children, but no diagnoses were made. Attendees had a chance
to discuss their children’s behaviour and
concerns and shared experiences with each
other. We got valuable information on how to
manage, treat and discipline children who has
been diagnosed with ADHD.
Usefull websites
Information is power and at the end of the
day, everybody walked out with more knowledge on this condition and that it is treatable.
Thank you very much to Tia, for her time and
effort she put in to discuss ADHD with the
attendees. Thank you to LIFE Carstenhof Clinic
for using their facilities.

Multiple birthday party ideas
Written by: Nancy Arnold
Throwing a birthday celebration for twins can be
quite the challenge. You’ll need to plan a celebration that makes each child feel special. Your kids
will need to share the spotlight, while also feeling
like their personal interests and hopes are being
fulfilled. Planning a celebration that meets each
child’s unique aspirations and personality can be
daunting, but fear not! We have all the tips and
tricks you’ll need to plan a perfect celebration for
your twins’ birthday party!
Invitations
Celebrations begin with the invitations. Inform
your guests of your celebration with the right
kids birthday invitations. If you can’t find the
invitations you’re looking for, try creating your
own. Order inexpensive kids birthday invitations
online, or try making your own from scratch. You
can even get your kids involved. They’ll love adding personal touches to their birthday invitations.
Your guests will enjoy receiving an invite you and
your kids worked hard on.
Booklet, Accordion, and Multifold Cards
A great way to incorporate both of your children
into your invites is via multi paged invitations.
There’s a variety of multi-page invitation card designs to choose from; including booklet, accordion, and multifold cards. Booklet invitations are a
great choice if you’re planning on adding a lot of
photographs and text to your invite. They provide
8 pages of design space. Tri-fold, or accordion invitations consists of 6 pages. Multi paged invites
will give you plenty of space to cover your celebration’s details, while also giving you a chance
to dedicate specific pages to each child.
Party Decorations
After you find the invitations that are right for
your celebration, you can start thinking about
party decorations. Choose decorations that
match the interests and personality of your twins.
You can even include the twins in the decorating
process. Let them choose the celebration theme
and color scheme. They will enjoy the celebration
even more knowing they helped put it together!
Cater the celebration to the interest of both
children be letting each child choose a decoration
theme and color scheme. Whether it’s dinosaurs
and princesses, pirates and Barbies, or black and
white, it will be fun to find a creative way to fit
the pieces together. If you’re trying to plan your
INDEX
party on a budget, there are a ton of fun DIY
decorations you can put together for next to
nothing.
Handmade flag garland design process.
Add color and definition to any boring wall or
ceiling with handmade garland. You can make
garland out of almost anything. Try using paper, a stencil, and ribbon to create beautiful flag
garland. Start by creating a triangle stencil out of
cardboard. Then use the stencil to trace your triangles, or flags, onto colorful construction paper.
Cut out the flags and punch two holes near the
top. Add ribbon and you have colorful piece of
garland to adorn your venue with.
To incorporate the twin theme into this project,
let the children help decorate the flags. Before
you punch holes in the flags, divide the flags in
half and give a pile to each child. They can use
markers, colored pencils, crayons, or paint to
decorate the flags. Then string the decorated
flags onto the ribbon. This craft project will make
for a fun bonding experience! Your kids will have
to work together to complete it and the finished
project will show the unique flags created by
each child.
Party Favors
Looking for a fun and easy party favor for your
birthday celebration? Teach the kids how to make
candy necklaces. This project is super fun, easy, and
delicious. Start by setting out dental floss and dishes
of candy or cereal. Fruit Loops, Cheerios, and Lifesavers are all great choices. Supervise the children as the
string their necklaces together and help them out
when needed. Your guests will love taking this home
as a keepsake of your party.
Party Activities
You’ll need to provide your kids with fun party
games and activities to keep them entertained
throughout their celebration. Try choosing games
that coincide with your party theme. It’s never a
bad idea to have a craft station setup for the kids to
enjoy. Try setting up a cupcake decorating station.
Everyone will enjoy this activity. Start by putting
out a few dishes of frosting, sprinkles, and candies.
Then buy or bake a batch of cupcakes. Let each twin
choose a flavor for the cupcakes and color for the
frosting. Supervise the children as they have fun
making beautiful cupcakes they then get to eat!
Enjoy Your Celebration
Hope these twin party suggestions help you plan a
wonderful birthday celebration! Remember to include your children in the party planning process!
They will surely have a few ideas you never would
have thought of. Have fun planning your celebration!

water broke, and the twins were delivered via emergency c – section.
Booth were admitted to NICU, but luckily there were no complications
and our girls were fit to and healthy enough to return home to us on
the same day, 3 weeks later. They are 4mounths old, and doing very
well.
• Florah and Moeketsi Maxeke welcome their twins Kamohelo Onthatile
and Reamohetswe Remoratile born on the 25th February 2013 via elective c – section at 37 week at the Krugersdorp Private Hospital. Kamohelo weighed in at 2.905kg and Reamohetswe at 2.980kg.

Welcome to New Members
One of the main aims of SAMBA is to put members in contact with each other to provide
moral support and to get to know other parents who are travelling the same road as you.
Many of us do not have the time at this stage to get very involved due to bed rest, the knowledge
that we won’t have the time once the babies arrive or just feeling a little overwhelmed.
If you would like to chat to another member on this list who either stays in your area or has similar
circumstances to you please contact either Alice Badenhorst or your Chairlady for details.

Our 2nd Expectant Parents seminar for 2013 was

For the 1st time in 3 years we had a very small
group of 19 couples. We nevertheless had a wonderful seminar. One couple was expecting triplets
and the rest twins.
MY COMMITTEE:

Dad Talk
BY Stephen Roberts –
Father of pigeon pair (6 years) and 1
Singleton (5 months).
Breastfeeding multiples
BY Erika Steyn – Mother of 4 children
(2 singletons and twins)
Each topic was someone’s favourite amongst the delegates.
Fedics served delicious snacks
during tea break and we ended
the seminar off with a very exciting raffle.
Since the group was smaller
than usual, there was a lot of
interaction and questions from
the delegates. The feedback
we received was very good and
positive.
We hosted the seminar at The Netcare St Augustines Hospital Caritas Boardroom. We had a very small group of 8 delegates attend the seminar.
There was one exhibitor, Marshmallow Images photography which took photos of the event.
Topics and Speakers included the following:
a) Premmies and NICU
Kerryn Else covered this topic with her own experiences as well. She stressed
the importance of choosing the right hospital with adequate NICU as well as a
good Paediatrician.
b) Breastfeeding
Lactation Consultant Penny Reimers was well received and a high light of the
seminar. Very professional and informative.
c) Practical Hints and Tips
Kerryn Else gave a brief overview of this topic. The parents benefitted from
this tremendously.
d) Caregivers / Night Nurses
Mandy Steyn from Aupairs Exclusive explained the night nursing system of 3
to 6 months at a time.
e) Equipment
Jolene Simionato shared her tips on the equipment which is essential when
having multiples.
f) From a Dad’s point of view
Andre van Kooten stole the show and was the highlight of the day’s event. He
had most of the dads in stitches when explaining his own experience.

seminar was a complete success.
We would like to give a huge thanks to all the sponsors and

20th saw an extremely successful Expectant Parents Seminar hosted at the Mediclinic Panorama,
by the SAMBA Western Cape committee. We had
12 couples attend. Amongst the delegates we had
two couples expecting triplets and the rest expecting twins. One couple’s twins had already been

should be considering.

to do and what not to do!! His talk was definitely the highlight of the dads’ afternoon!!
1. Lousanne Terblanche mother of B/G twins and
national SAMBA Seminar Co-Ordinator covered
the basics of multiple terminology which was a
great introduction to the afternoon.
A big thank you to Lousanne Terblanche, National

way from Johannesburg, to help us out on the
day.
2. Mari Loubser mother of twin girls shared her
story of what it was like to experience her girls
time in NICU and the struggles of caring for
premature babies. The moms enjoyed listening
to Mari’s story and all felt it was an important
issue to discuss.
Thanks to our fabulous sponsors! We were able
to raffle off some wonderful prizes during the
afternoon. A Big Thank You goes to all our large
sponsors and especially to our local ones Double
Trouble and The Mom and Baby House for their
support and generous contributions to the raffle
and/or delegates goodie bags.
3. Carol Cowburn mother of twin boy and girl
shared her experience of breastfeeding twins
and tips on how she was able to successfully
breastfeed her children’s first year. Carol’s story
was met with vivid interest and questions. A
huge topic on all the moms minds and really
helped to start getting them prepared and
equip them with the confidence to have a go!
A special thanks also goes to Mediclinic Panorama

Overall a tremendously successful afternoon and
we look forward to the next one.

Puppet Fun: Making and Playing With Puppets
By Christie Burnett
I am taking a little time offline this week to spend
with family and to try and kick the final symptoms
of my recent illness. Fortunately, I have some
great blogging friends who have offered to help
me out with a series of fabulous guest posts. I
hope you all enjoy this playful post by Cathy from
NurtureStore.
be proud of. Almost anything can be turned into
a puppet with a little imagination, so make use
of what you already have. We love to raid our
recycling box for craft materials, seeing what we
can use for hats and clothes. Pens and pencils are
good for drawing on faces but in our house it’s
stick-on googly eyes which really make a prized
puppet!
Puppet play is a real favourite in our house. I’ve
been using puppets with my daughters since they
were babies and now they are five and eight it’s
wonderful to see them making puppets of their
own and using them in their games. I love them
because they encourage so much creative play,
from the original gluing and sticking to create
them, to all the language and imagination that
appears when they start to tell stories with them.
My girls love them because they are able to make
any kind of puppet their imaginations dream up
and then bring them to life.
Egg cartons/boxes are great for animals such as
crocodiles and dragons, as they provide a ready
mouth you can open up.
Lollipop sticks are versatile too, and only need one
of your child’s drawings stuck to them to bring
their character to life. Or use photographs of the
faces of people your child loves to make unique
family of puppets.
how to make a peg dollWooden spoons or clothes
pegs already have a ‘head’ on them, ready to be
transformed with pens and pencils. Pieces of material, wrapping paper, wool and ribbons all make
beautiful clothes
how to make finger puppetsYou can easily transform your child’s drawing into a finger puppet
by sticking it on to cardboard and cutting out
two holes near the bottom, just big enough for
your child to poke their fingers through and make
‘legs’.
Here are some of our favourite ways to make puppets with ideas for how to use them in play.
Gloves make practical puppets too, as they are so
easy to wear.
How to make a puppet
You can of course buy puppets but creating your
own gives your child a very special toy they can

Making food fun for kids helps them learn
about all the important food groups. Vegtables are usually not a favourite. In a creative
way you can help them to try all the new
good foods they need to grow up healthy and
strong.
Petite Lasagnas
(makes 12)
12 oz raw ground turkey/chicken
¼ tsp salt, divided
¼ tsp pepper
1 cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped mushrooms
14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes, or tomato sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp dried oregano, divided
½ tsp dried basil
1 ½ cups part skim ricotta cheese
24 small square wonton wrappers
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 180ºC Heat a large pan. Add the turkey, onions, mushrooms, salt, and
pepper. Crumble the meat and saute the mixture for about 10 minutes, or until the turkey is cooked through. Add the garlic and stir constantly for 30 seconds.
2. Add the crushed tomatoes and 2 tsp of oregano. Bring the pan to a gentle boil. Reduce
the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, a pinch of salt and pepper, the remaining teaspoon of oregano, and the basil. Stir to mix well. Set aside.
4. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1 wonton wrapper into
each of the 12 cups, pressing firmly in the bottom of the cup and up the sides.
5. Using half of the ricotta mixture, divide it among the 12 muffin cups. Next, using half
of the turkey tomato sauce, spoon it evenly over each of the ricotta filled cups. Sprinkle
with 2 tsp of mozzarella.
6. Gently press another wonton wrapper on top of the mozzarella layer.
7. Repeat the process by distributing the remaining ricotta, then the remaining tomato
sauce, and finally the rest of the shredded mozzarella.
8. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
9. Let the cups cool, remove them from the pan, and serve!

DISCOUNT
If you have any suggestions for me regarding
discounts, please contact me and I will follow it
up. Please do not contact the organisations directly (unless indicated otherwise on the table)
as it creates confusion with the organisations if
they deal with many SAMBA members asking
for discount. It also makes it difficult to coordinate all the different discounts available and
communicate those to all SAMBA members.
The various organisations have requested
one SAMBA person to deal with and SAMBA
would like to honour this request as all our
members stand to lose if we do not comply.
Your co-operation is appreciated and should
you fail to co-operate, your membership will be
revoked.
If you experience any difficulty with discounts
offered please inform me so that I can follow up
and rectify misunderstandings.
Please be aware that any member found abusing the privileges of SAMBA membership discounts (buying for friends, selling for profit, etc)
will have their membership revoked immediately
and no membership fees returned! All suppliers
will be notified not to grant any further discounts to these ex-members.
Prices listed or communicated via fax, e-mail or
phone is only an indication and not a quote!!!
SAMBA is only the messenger between the
distributor and the member. A lot of the goods
are subject to fluctuations in the exchange rate
therefore only invoices and official quotes from
the distributor is a final indication of the cost.
It can also happen that retailers have these
products stocked at lower prices as most of
the distributors do not carry large quantities of
stock and therefore only have stock at the latest
exchange rate.
Please remember that SAMBA does not make
any profit on the discount products sold and we
are given the best prices by the suppliers that
they are willing to give and have no control over
these prices.

INDEX
During the first months of your bubba’s life she
is thought of as an “external foetus.”
With the ubbaBubba®, your little bundle is as
close as she can get to being in the same
environment as she was in utero - wrapped
up tight where it’s warm and dark and being quietly lulled to sleep by a familiar
heartbeat and rhythm. Research finds this close contact and environment helps newborns (especially premature bubbas) to adapt to life outside the womb with much
less crying and a deepened sense of security.The ubbaBubba® is perfectly versatile,
meaning that as your bubba grows and becomes more curious, she can be turned
around to face the world. This is why we like to think of the ubbaBubba® as the perfect “Womb with a view”! This versatility means that you can ‘wear’ your bubba for
as long as you are both comfortable.
