“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
So last week was our second week of home learning. (I’m loathe to call it homeschooling – somehow I don’t feel it’s quite the same thing!) It’s still going really well. The twiglets’ behaviour is so much easier to manage when we have a bit of structure to our days. As a parent, I’ve never really been one for strict routines but right now it definitely feels right for us! H is so much more unsettled and difficult at the weekends when he has more freedom. I think I might have to keep it going through the Easter holidays at this rate!
Most of us parents are always on the lookout for ideas of activities to keep our kids entertained and happy. Especially at the moment, when lots of us find ourselves in the position of attempting to homeschool our children to some extent while schools are closed. If you have a space-mad little one and you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, then look no further! Here are 25 fun and easy space-themed EYFS activities you can do at home with your child.
So, this post is not exactly reinventing the wheel! Obstacle courses are not anything new – in fact they’ve probably been around pretty much forever. But I just wanted to let you know, in case you didn’t already, that it is SO simple to set up a really basic obstacle course for your kids. You can literally use any old sh*te you have lying around :’) So here you go: how to make an easy obstacle course…
It’s so important to get children excited about Science from an early age. To celebrate British Science Week, we were lucky enough to receive some lovely STEM toys from Learning Resources. This post will show you how Learning Resources can help you bring Science to life at home in an easy and fun way.
