Easy Activities For Young Kids

Whether it’s a rainy day or a lazy day we all find it hard to occupy our children without it costing the earth. Over the last 18 months I have found numerous activities that my children love that are relatively cheap or even free! Here are the top 24 (two per month at least): Rock […]

Your Second Child

Having a baby is an exciting experience, whether first child or second child, yet your experience with your second child is totally different. With your first child during pregnancy everybody treats you like a pampered pooch, and wants to protect you. You lounge around napping at every opportunity and with good reason. You do all […]

Casdon Kenwood Mixer

My boys have always loved imaginary play, especially baking and cafes. We have wooden food you can dice, plastic veg, wooden pull-apart meats, teapots, coffee machines, tea sets, a cash register, pretty much anything you can imagine would be needed for role-play we have it! We even have a little wooden macaron and fresh cream […]

Recently I saw a post on a social media site about motherhood and its reality, and it really struck a nerve with me. When you think of motherhood you picture children running merrily over hills flying kites whilst proud parents look on and smile, you think of wonderful picnics next to a lake with homemade cakes, […]

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Activity

We love the story about The Very Hungry Caterpillar in our house we always have, and most likely always will. Over the years we have based so many activities on this story from paintings to taste testing, and this time story stones and play dough. My six year is becoming an amazing reader, he is […]

Transport Themed Activity

When your children are under the weather you look for ways to keep them occupied that require a minimal set up and that use the least energy possible for them. My two boys love cars, and trucks, and trains, and tracks, and roads. They also love making a mess. Today they were both under the […]
