Yay it’s officially the first day of Spring! Spring is my favourite season, and for me it signals the start of being able to spend more time in my garden. Today also marks the first day of my new guest post series, Get in Your Garden! which will include weekly guest posts to encourage you to get outside and enjoy your garden as much as I enjoy mine.
These Peg and Pipe Cleaner Crocodiles are a great rainy day craft for children. Using just simple craft materials that you may have lying around already. The kids loved getting involved and loved playing with their little snappy crocodiles at the end of it. I just need to think of more animals we can make!
With spring nearly upon us, I am starting a weekly guest post series called Get in Your Garden!. The aim is to encourage individuals, children and families to get outside and enjoy their garden, however large or small. Posts will range from how to tutorials, hints and tips, garden inspiration and family fun activities.
Do your kids have favourite books? Books that they have had since they were tiny but can’t give them up? Mine certainly do! Bitten by the home video bug, my kiddos wanted to show you their five favourite story books.
This year, for their 4th Blog ambassador programme, Mark Warner Holidays have asked us willing entrants what our top ten travel must haves are. Like most mums, my absolute holiday essential is to make sure my kids are happy, so we thought we would hand the task over to them.
I love baking, and I really enjoying baking with my children. OK so it’s far messier when they are around (I’m not the tidiest baker myself to be honest!), and it does tend to take twice as long to get anything done, but I genuinely enjoy it. As a bonus I think they do too, beyond the licking of the spoon and enjoying the results! This marshmallow rice crispie heart recipe is a simple take on a classic that the children can get involved in making and eating!
I’ve read loads of these bucket list posts before, and I always think that they are a great idea and I should write one! So after turning 39 just over a week ago, I got thinking about all the things I would like to do before I turn 40. So here is my bucket list for my 40th Year.
