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 😀
I feel like there’s lots of stuff swirling around in my head at the moment and I’m in the mood for writing it down… Most of it is returning to work worries. It’s been a while. Three and a half years in fact! 😂
Back when the twiglets were babies, whenever I met a mum with older twins, one of the main questions I’d end up asking was ‘when does having twins get easier?’ Always spoken with a slight undertone of crazed desperation, meaning ‘please tell me it gets f**king easier, please, PLEASE!” 🤣 The other day, as I got the twiglets out of the car and they walked, both sensibly holding my hands, into their playgroup, it suddenly struck me that maybe we were actually there… Has it finally got easier?!
It’s inevitable. As kids grow, they become more and more aware of the world and what’s happening around them. It can be tough to realise that as a parent you’re no longer the sole influence on your children’s lives. So how do you cope when your children start to lose their innocence?
Hello! A while ago, we had a fab little break away at Drayton Manor Park. We visited Thomas Land, an attraction for younger visitors and Thomas the Tank Engine fans within the main theme park. I thought I’d write a little review, to share our experience and tips for visiting the theme park and accommodation with toddlers. So I hope this Thomas Land review is useful 🙂
