A Willow and Wild Box is a nature inspired monthly subscription box aimed at children aged 3-8 years old. I love my garden and being outside, and I am quite passionate about encouraging my kids to love it too, so the theme of these boxes really appealed to me.
This is lovely activity for the kids to do. It involves two of my favourite things: crafting and growing plants from seed. Making these cute Cress Egg Heads is a really cool way to introduce the concept of food growing from seeds to our children. You can do this activity all year round, and as it only requires a small area of your windowsill it is something everyone can do.
In the coldest months of the year it’s really important to feed the birds in your garden. Wild birds benefit from all year round feeding, but it is particularly important in the winter. When it’s cold, birds need high fat food to give them plenty of energy and to help keep them warm. You can make your own fat balls for birds, and this post gives you step by step instructions on how to do it.
It’s bank holiday Monday and the sun is finally shining! If your looking for a great idea to entertain the kids and keep them cool today, why not try this fab sensory frozen toy activity.

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.
Festival season is truly upon us. I have been to a few festivals in the past pre-children, but have yet to brave them with the kids. It maybe something we look at when the kids are older. If you like me love the festival vibe, but going with the children isn’t an option, why not create a mini festival in your own back garden? This weeks guest post is all about hosting your own mini festival.
