I have always wanted to try making bath bombs, but it’s been on my craft to do list for a while now. The lovely people from Craftiosity sent me one of their monthly craft boxes to review. I was so excited when I found out that it was a bath bomb kit!
I am on a mission at the moment to reorganise and de-clutter my house. Clear house, clear mind and all that! Part of that process is to get rid of what we don’t use or need anymore. We have boxes and boxes of clothes and toys that the kids have outgrown, and I have started listing them on eBay
I am always on the lookout for things that will encourage my children’s curiosity and imagination. This ceiling mounted illuminated solar system just does that, and Oliver just loves it!
Autumn is officially here, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. I love the changing of the seasons, and love wrapping up warm and finding some outdoor Autumn activities to do with the kids. So if you’re stuck for ideas, here are a few of our favourite things to do when the leaves start to fall.
This is yet another great rainy day activity. Play slime is really easy to make, with the base being 3 simple ingredients that you may already have at home. The slime itself is very tactile, and can provide hours of entertainment for your little ones.
This is a recipe I came up with to try and get my children eating more red meat, whilst introducing some new flavours to them. This Moroccan inspired meatball recipe is for soft succulent lamb meatballs in a rich aromatic sauce which has a perfect blend of sweetness and spice. I’ve included a FREE printable recipe card for you at the end in case you want to try it yourself.
If your children are anything like the mine, the more they grow the more ‘stuff’ they tend to accumulate. I thought once we got rid of the high chairs, change tables and bulky bouncers I would have more space, but boy was I wrong. Instead they accumulate so many toys and books, and the older they get the bigger their toys get! They also seem to have great reluctance to get rid of anything from their younger years.
With this in mind, I am constantly on the look out for new ways to organise my children’s bedroom. The latest of which is we are considering purchasing cabin beds and here is why.
I’m thrilled to say that we are now part of the Bostik blogger team, where each month we are sent a box full of themed crafty goodies to inspire us on our next craft project.
For our first month, the theme is Monsters! and who doesn’t love a monster. Monsters are great because you can really let your imagination run wild. They can be any colour, shape that you want and as cute or scary as you desire.
