Magical Mud Pies

Get back to basics this summer and make some mud pies with your kids. This summer we are stepping back from our screens (for most of the day anyway) and getting back to basics with our summer activities. When the sun is shining we are going to be heading down to the beach or out to the playground, eating picnics and playing games or doing arts and crafts out in our garden. This is where the memories are made, not sitting behind a screen. We… Read More

Sibling Summer Activities

Make this a summer to remember with an action packed activity schedule that is full of activities for siblings to do together. Being a busy mum of 3 kids, I know how hard it can be to juggle long summer days at home with your kids. We all relish the break from our routines that the school holidays bring with them, but the novelty of long lazy mornings can soon wear off and you start to hear calls of "I'm bored" before you know it… Read More

Do your windows need cleaning? If so, then mix up our awesome outdoor finger painting recipe. It doubles up as a fun window soap for kids which clean's your windows, as they play and create.

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. Snow is not something that my kids have had much experience of yet. I'm pretty sure only my eldest son has seen enough to ride a sledge on. And he is definitely the only one of my kids to have built a snowman outside. Some would say that… Read More

What is your go-to activity for when you just need to get out with your kids? We love to take a trip to the Woods to collect materials for some Creative Nature Collages. You've been trapped inside your house all morning.

Summer Learning Beach Name Collage Summer Learning Beach Name Collage

Head down to the beach and make a fun Name Collage using stones and pebbles. A fun learning activity for preschoolers working on name recognition. When the weather allows (and sometimes when it doesn't) we love to pack up a picnic and head down to our local beach. My kids go mad for a spot of hole digging (in pursuit of treasure usually), sandcastle building and paddling fun. It's also great to bring some of our activities down to the beach. There's nothing like a… Read More
