This probably sounds like a bit of an odd title for a post! But hear me out! So far I am actually quite enjoying lockdown. And surprisingly I have a few different reasons as to why!! So here’s why I’m enjoying lockdown…
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 EYFS space 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.
Well, you all know we are big rainbow fans here! So I was thrilled when we were kindly sent some Rainbow Blopens from John Adams to try. I wasn’t asked to write a blog review but we really loved this product so I wanted to share 🙂
A while ago, C got in a total rage after school. Not all that uncommon. But this was pretty extreme. Eventually it culminated with her running into the road without looking. I was really scared to think about what could have happened and it has made me reevaluate a few things. So I just thought I’d write a quick post about dealing with child anger and what I’ve learned from this experience.
Now I’m not a nutritional expert by any means, but I thought I’d pull together a list of tips to encourage healthy eating in children. They’re written from my perspective as a mum of twins who has sometimes torn her hair out trying to get her kids to eat healthily!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, or you follow me on Instagram, you might know that I’m pretty shocking at doing craft or messy play or any of that shiz at home with the twigs. Unfortunately the twigs didn’t get the memo and bloody love all that stuff. And occasionally I do like to be slightly less crap and will force myself to whack out the old craft supplies on a rainy day. When I do though, I need simple ideas. And you all know I love rainbows, so I thought I’d pull together a selection of easy rainbow craft activities for toddlers. You know, just in case any other mamas out there are a bit lacking in the old creativity department too! So here you go 😀
There are sooo many parenting blogs out there these days – how do you know which ones to follow for the most useful, entertaining content? I thought I would share with you some of the best parenting blogs out there (in my humble opinion).
Since we entered the world of childcare and now school, there have been occasions where I’ve faced a dilemma that I find really tricky as a parent. How do you know when kids are too sick for school?
At Christmas, we had our first experience of attending a school show. The twiglets had their Reception Christmas concert. Cute little kids on a stage singing – what could be more lovely, right? Well it was lovely. But simultaneously a bit of a bloody nightmare! So I thought I’d share some tips for attending school shows for anyone who hasn’t had this joy yet…
