I love Halloween, and this year with a little more free time on my hands, I’ve gone all out! The kids have loved helping with these simple Halloween crafts to decorate the house in time for our little party. Here are 4 simple ideas for making Halloween inspired decorations that the kids can get involved with.
With Halloween around the corner, it’s a great excuse to do some ghost crafts. I’ve been meaning to try out some ghosts for a few years, but just never got around to it. So this is my first attempt, and I was really pleased with the outcome. I have a feeling ghost crafts will be featuring in our Halloween celebrations for years to come!
I love the Autumn, when the leaves start to fall, and the nights start to draw in. As a family we love getting outdoors, and just because the weather isn’t as good, it doesn’t put us off! I have been meaning to do a scavenger hunt for the kids for ages now, but what better time to do it than the beginning of Autumn, when there are loads of acorns, conkers and other treasures to find!
I first made this chutney last Christmas, and was amazed not only how good it tasted, but also how well received it was by my guests. Such any easy recipe too, who thought you could have such a lovely chutney with minimal effort! Great with cheese, pate and biscuits at Christmas and any time of the year!
We had a family day out at Legoland, Windsor a few weeks ago. The kids were really looking forward to it (as were we!) and typically the good old British weather quite literally rained on our plans. However we weren’t about to let a little bit of rain ruin our Legoland fun.
Clarabelle, our little second hand caravan, had her first outing of the year to a lovely spot in North Norfolk. We were lucky enough to go for just over a week in August, and the kids loved our little caravan adventure.
When you have children there are so many milestones, weaning, their first steps, their first words, potty training, sleeping through the night! to name but a few. However nothing quite prepared me for my eldest, Isla, starting school. The end of an era, a pivotal moment in her childhood, has proved to be an emotional time.
Tomorrow is a massive milestone for my daughter, her first day at school! I felt I needed to write this, more for me than her, but hopefully she can look back at this and realise how much I love her, and how proud I am of her…
