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.

How To Teach Kids Spanish With One Third Stories

  • April 5, 2018

Being able to speak another language is an amazing skill to have, and the younger the child the easier it is to pick up a new language.

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.

3 Really Easy Kids’ Science Experiments

  • February 20, 2017

Little H has been learning about science and engineering at school so we thought we’d do some fun science experiments at home. It’s also a good way to tempt her away from her tablet – this kid is obsessed!
