Part of the enjoyment for me of being in my garden, is the fact that I can get closer to nature. I love hearing the birds sing, and seeing the friendly Robin when i’m digging in the dirt. Birdhouses can help encourage birds into your garden, provide an important function and also look incredibly pretty.
I’m excited, we all are excited! Not only because it’s the weekend, but also because tomorrow we are going on a family bushcraft day with Camp Wilderness. So tonight we are getting our stuff ready for the outdoor adventures we are going to have tomorrow.
The idea of flower pot cakes wasn’t mine originally. I’m not sure where it came from but it’s been in my head for the last year or so. I was in two minds as to whether or not to post this, as my version of flower pot cakes didn’t quite turn out as Pinterstically perfect as I had imagined! However, I’m posting it nether the less, maybe someone will see it and let me know how to perfect it.
Yay it’s officially the first day of Spring! Spring is my favourite season, and for me it signals the start of being able to spend more time in my garden. Today also marks the first day of my new guest post series, Get in Your Garden! which will include weekly guest posts to encourage you to get outside and enjoy your garden as much as I enjoy mine.
This is a great rainy day craft to get the kids involved with, using simple craft materials that you may have lying around. The kids loved getting involved and loved playing with their little snappy crocodiles at the end of it. I just need to think of more animals we can make!
With spring nearly upon us, I am starting a weekly guest post series called Get in Your Garden!. The aim is to encourage individuals, children and families to get outside and enjoy their garden, however large or small. Posts will range from how to tutorials, hints and tips, garden inspiration and family fun activities.
Do your kids have favourite books? Books that they have had since they were tiny but can’t give them up? Mine certainly do! Bitten by the home video bug, my kiddos wanted to show you their five favourite story books.
This year, for their 4th Blog ambassador programme, Mark Warner Holidays have asked us willing entrants what our top ten travel must haves are. Like most mums, my absolute holiday essential is to make sure my kids are happy, so we thought we would hand the task over to them.
