The start of Spring marks the start of the horticultural show season. These are great traditional local community events to get involved in. No longer just for the retired, older population, but are fun for all the family and particularly the kids. Here are 10 Reasons Why We Should be Encouraging Our Children to Enter Horticultural Shows.
We were lucky enough to be invited to attend the LEGO Friends House of Heart Tour at out local intu shopping centre at the weekend.
World Book Day is just around the corner, and even though there is very little time, a fab costume does not have to cost you the earth. If you are stuck for inspiration for a Simple DIY World Book Day Costume then read on.
I am always keen to get outside whatever the weather, and find some outdoor activities for the whole family. So this weekend I decided to take the kids on a footprint hunt, in the hope that we could make some nice plaster casts of any we found.
I have always loved the build up to Christmas, possibly more than the day itself. This year is no exception and I love seeing the excitement build through the eyes of my children. At 4 and 5 they are old enough to understand what Christmas is all about, but young enough to immerse themselves fully in the Christmas magic.
So this year we have decided to join in the madness that is ‘Elf on the Shelf’. The children have read the book that came with our Elf, so hopefully they understand ‘the rules’. They have named him ‘Buddy’. Very original I know, but we all love the film ‘Elf’ so I suppose it was inevitable.
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!
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.
