If your a regular to my blog you will know that I love to make jam, and I often enter it into our local horticultural shows. This recipe hasn’t failed me yet, winning first place in every class I’ve entered it in. It really does make a lovely raspberry jam.
Week #20 already of my Get in Your Garden! guest post series, and this week we look at how you can enjoy the feeling of grass between your toes even if you haven’t got space for a lawn!
This little craft was prompted again by one of our local horticultural shows. There was a class for a decorated wooden spoon for children aged between 5-7 years. We have decorated wooden spoons in the past, and the kids loved it, so Isla was really keen to enter. When I asked her what animal she wanted to turn her wooden spoon into, she of course said a Flamingo! Or mingo as she calls them, her favourite animal (probably because they’re pink!). So together we crafted this little wooden spoon flamingo.
Summer holidays are here, and barbecue season is upon us. All we need is the sun to shine, and then there is no excuse not to Get in Your Garden! and get the barbecue started. If you need more convincing then this post is for you!
If you like peanut butter, then you will love these chocolate peanut butter balls! They taste amazing and are really simple to make. They are great to do with the kids on those rainy days of the holidays. Isla loves making these, and of course eating them afterwards!
This is a really lovely simple kids craft to make a paper plate Bumble Bee. It is equally suited to both pre-school children and primary school age children. You would just need more parental involvement with the younger kids. Perfect for rainy days in the holidays.
Now it’s the holidays there is no excuse not to get outside and enjoy your garden (well apart from the weather that is!). If you want some ideas of activities that you can do outside with the kids, then this post is for you.
The last few weeks have seen a lot of first and lasts for my children. Culminating in Oliver leaving Pre-school and Isla finishing her first year at Primary school on Friday. Everything is happening so fast, and emotionally I am struggling to keep up.
