Easy, Quick Toddler Craft: Pom Pom Bugs

We have hundreds of pom poms in this house! That might be a slight exaggeration…but I bet we’re not far off! Although pom poms are great for a whole bunch of playful and educational activities, such as  improving fine motor skills with a super easy pom pom based game or learning about colours and sizes with this Super Speedy Sorting Game, we needed to do something that would…thin the numbers slightly. So I came up with this great quick bug themed craft that’s perfect for older kids to do by themselves, or for parents to do really quickly and...

Do It Yourself: Photo Wall

As I mentioned in my last post, our weekend was crazy busy, what with rearranging all the furniture and generally decluttering our teeny tiny flat.

And I have to say, he looked preeeeetttyyy damn adorable with his crown eating his dinner watching Robin Hood. Crowns aren’t just for girls, you know. I could never limit the toys Luke plays with by...

Pancake Day!

Happy (belated) Pancake day everyone! There’s no better way to celebrate today than having pancakes for breakfast. Am I right? Yeah, I thought so! So make your day amazing with 100g of plain flour, a pinch of salt, 2 eggs and 300ml of milk together in a big bowl. Luke helped with the whole thing, even the egg cracking. (It’s a good idea to put a plate under a bowl when letting LO’s crack the eggs, that way any spillages can be scooped back up)....
