  • August 19, 2019

This post is in collaboration with Slick Willie’s The summer holidays can be a great time for families to have days out together and enjoy some of the summer sunshine. Children can get over-excited about the holidays when there’s no more school work, uniforms, and early mornings. Before the holidays, there are lots of ways that working mums can plan for the holidays, from booking time off work to scheduling >>

11 Creative Ways To Document Your Child’s Biggest Milestones

  • March 7, 2019

Kids grow up fast – everyone tells you that as soon as you have a baby but you don’t really appreciate how quickly they grow until a few years have whizzed by in a blur. I’ll have an 8-year-old in a couple of months and sometimes it still only feels like 5 minutes ago that I had a newborn baby in my arms. Crying. A lot. Documenting each milestone is >>

5 Steps To Nurturing Your Child's Creativity

My husband and I both went to Art College so we’re both quite creative. Little H seems to be following suit as she’s always drawing and colouring and loves anything arty. I’m happy to encourage her creativity and anything that gets her away from the tv or computer screen. A lot of people believe you’re either born creative or you’re not. Some children have a knack for the arts, able >>

11 Household Chores for 7 year olds

  • May 10, 2018

It’s amazing how messy the house can get when everyone’s at work and school all day isn’t it! I’ve previously blogged some time-saving housework hacks for mums, but I also believe in getting all family members doing their bit. After a day at work, doing the school run and ferrying the child to her clubs, I really don’t feel like coming home and doing loads of housework so I make >>

Win a Snuggle Sac From Room To Grow

  • May 1, 2018

I don’t know about you, but we’re all about getting cosy on the sofa at the weekends and now Little H is older she’s even on board with a lie-in and will happily stay in bed playing, reading or using her tablet. With this winter weather hanging around I’m finding that we’re still using blankets or throws when we’re having a movie afternoon. If you’re the same, then you’ll love >>

Encouraging Kids Into STEM

  • February 12, 2018

I’m a big fan of encouraging kids into STEM subjects, especially girls as the industry is majorly lacking in women.  It’s an area that is so varied there’s something for every child to find exciting whilst also learning valuable skills and getting those little brains working. All ages can get involved, you don’t need to wait until they do these subjects later on at school. Read on to find out how you >>

Hands up who else is bored of the rain? Every weekend this year seems to have been wet and miserable and the weather forecast for the next week or so doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. How on earth do you do keep kids entertained for a whole weekend when you can’t go out for walks or to the park? So until Spring arrives with some sunshine, I’ve made >>

  • January 15, 2018

Arranging a kids’ birthday party is a task many mums dread. There’s so much to organise from deciding whether to invite the whole class or getting your child to pick a select few friends, to finding a venue and organising party games. You can go for a party at home, hire a hall, or go somewhere like soft play and get them to do most of the work for you >>

I didn’t do a book recommendation in November or December as we were just so busy with other things, but I will try to get back on it this year. January’s book recommendation is a lovely personalised book from Family Stories that we received just before Christmas, I’ve lost count of times it’s already been read! There’s a lot of personalised books for children out there but I especially liked the look >>

10 Things To Do With Kids On New Year’s Eve

  • December 18, 2017

Long gone are the days of going ‘out out’ on New Year’s Eve, when you’re a parent it’s all about family nights unless you’re lucky enough to have a babysitter. We used to go out every year with friends, but haven’t since Little H was born. If I’m honest I can’t think of anything worse than going out in town now, I would much rather spend time my family and >>
