These cute little pipe cleaner bees are super simple to make and very effective.


With the nicer weather (hopefully) round the corner, it’s time to think about getting out in the garden and planting up the veggie patch. It is also a great time to introduce gardening to your little ones. Subscription boxes can be a great way to do this if you’re not naturally green fingered yourself.

It is also the start of horticultural show season, and my kids love to enter the children’s classes. There are loads of benefits for children entering the shows, and it’s something I’m really passionate about. Have a read of the blog post to see why.

    Some fab ideas Kerry – love the bee pipe cleaners and nothing like handmade Mother’s Day cards of course. I saw an idea the other day which I thought’d I’d share – you buy a white tile, and print out a picture of the kids – glue it to the tile, use sealer and then it makes a great coaster. Think I might try this!
