During the Easter holidays we were lucky enough to spend a week in North Devon. Just around the corner from where we were staying was The Big Sheep. Sadly we were not blessed with nice weather whilst we were away, and on an overcast day with showers predicted we were looking for some family fun. Billed as an all weather family attraction we headed to The Big Sheep to investigate.
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.
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.
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.
It feels like Autumn has arrived, but there are still ways in which you can enjoy your garden. One of the things I love about growing my own fruit and vegetables is using them in my culinary creations. I have yet, however to turn them into alcohol!
Summer is starting to draw to a close, and Autumn is just around the corner. It is also time for my Get in Your Garden! Guest post series to start drawing to a close. But not without a few more great posts, that hopefully show you that your garden is still the best place to be.
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.
