This week I’ve totally had enough of lockdown. To be fair, I’m not even sure if we’re really in lockdown anymore, are we? I suppose we’re in a sort of limbo, while the lockdown is gradually being lifted. But anyway, as much as there have been some really lovely things about lockdown, it has been a flipping long time now hasn’t it?!
Fancy doing some crafting with your little ones, but short on time or can’t be bothered to traipse round the shops looking for different activities? You probably know by now that I am ALLLLL about ease and convenience when it comes to crafting! So here are some of the best craft kits you can buy to make things a little less painful! 😀
Recently, I’ve been embracing crafting with my kids a little more than in the past. As I’ve said before, I’m not a natural crafter. But being stuck at home during lockdown and doing some home learning with the twiglets has encouraged me to crack out the crafts more often. I still look for simple ideas that are within my limited capabilities though! So in case anyone else is the same, I thought I’d make a list of easy spring craft ideas for you to try with your little ones!
This rainbow finger paint blossom tree craft activity is sooo simple! So I just thought I’d share, in case anyone was looking for a super easy finger painting activity to do with their little ones. It’s perfect for Spring crafting at home and not too messy either, compared to most painting activities!
Helloooo! I hope everyone’s doing ok and keeping well. I’m joining in with the Ordinary Moments linky run by Donna (What The Redhead Said) this week. What with spending so much time at home, we’ve had plenty of ordinary moments this week. But one thing we’ve been doing more of than ever is crafting like crazy!

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 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…
