5 cool snowman crafts for kids 1

Snow isn't the only way to build a snowman. If you don't have access to the cold stuff, raid your craft supplies instead and paint or make your own snowman. Whilst you keep warm and cosy inside.

And he is definitely the only one of my kids to have built a snowman outside. Some would say that… Read More

Bubble Wrap Christmas Activities for Kids

Looking for ways to recycle your Holiday packaging? Use some of your Bubble Wrap in one of our fun Christmas Activities.  Instead of of battling the stores in the run up to Christmas, I like to shop from the comfort of my sofa. It's then a mad dash to unpack the home delivery boxes and find hiding places for everything before the kids return home from school. This is getting harder and harder the older they get. I'm just hoping that they don't take a… Read More
