Pin Family Activities to do in March!
Arts and Crafts
St. Patrick’s Day crafts and some inspiration and ideas for some simple DIY World Book Day costumes should keep you busy!
A St. Patrick’s Day twist on the classic paper chain. A really simple but effective craft to do with the kids, and a great opportunity to teach them all about St. Patrick’s Day.
Some great ideas for DIY World Book Day costumes. This year we are going as the Gruffalo and the witch from Room on the Broom.
It’s also Mother’s Day at the end of the month, keep your eyes peeled for my bumper round up of Mother’s Day card ideas that the kids can make, coming soon!
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.
Oliver really enjoyed this box. He loved the crafts and planting his pea and poppy seeds and watching them grow!ing
My children love entering our local show, and there are loads of benefits of encouraging kids to get involved.
