Crafts for Kids and Family Travel

We are a family of four with a passion for crafts and travelling. My mom, the L in DLTK, started this website when my sister and I were very young and it has grown since... just like us! We started writing these blog posts so that we could connect with all of you more personally—share our stories, our favourite crafts, our love for holidays and family traditions, and our passion for travelling.

Here are some of our most recent posts, but check out the links below to read some more posts on your favourite topics!

Sydney Opera House.

I don’t know, really...but in photos, the Sydney Opera House always seemed huge to me and while the architecture is certainly unique I realized that once again I’ve been fooled by photography...

We all live here quote.

DLTK’s is a family business that started out as mom’s hobby while on maternity leave with me. So, yep... I’ve been helping out with the site since I was in utero! Now that I am all grown up (a whopping 21 years old!) I am still helping out with site, but I do a lot more than painting paper plates and coloring nowadays.

Exploring Tide Pools
May 2019
Leanne Guenther

Beach at Sofitel Moorea.

"Oh oh oh!" I gasped out, pointing and backing away from the pool of water in front of me. Darren was backing up too so I knew he’d seen it. "That…" he said in a voice slightly higher pitched than normal, "is an eel."...

My Thoughts About Air Tahiti
April 2019

Air Tahiti Nui jet.

I sipped my diet coke while watching a fellow passenger try to shoo a crab out of the baggage claim area. His wife cheered him on as he finally herded the annoyed crustacean back into the ocean. Just another day at the airport in French Polynesia...

A Tale of One Bungalow
April 2019
Leanne Guenther

Bora Bora's lagoon from the air.

I woke up this morning with Charles Dickens famous opening line in my head:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...
That line accurately describes a lot of things in life, I think — parenthood, career, marriage — and, for me, it accurately describes overwater bungalows in French Polynesia. Lol. Here’s my tale...

One Night in Paradise...
April 2019

Sunset over Mt. Otemanu.

I giggled nervously at Darren as he stared wide eyed out the window of our overwater bungalow into the blackness outside. Furniture rattled around the deck, illuminated briefly by flashes of lightning...

How Our Free nights in Paradise Went
April 2019
Leanne Guenther

The lagoonarium had a small beach for children to enjoy.

So Darren and I are on a trip that we’ve been dreaming about for 25 years. The girls are happily in university and we’re officially “empty nesters” trying to reconnect with each other and adapt to life without the titles of “mommy and daddy”. It’s a bit weird! ...

Choosing a Hotel Room
April 2019
Leanne Guenther

Overwater bungalows at St. Regis Bora Bora

When we travelled with the kids we tended to spend a bit more on hotel rooms. Family suites were a favourite choice. Or something with a little balcony that we could sit out on after we settled the girls in bed. Or an RV.Now that we’re travelling as just the two of us, we’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much cheaper it is...
