Children’s Theme Tunes That You Can’t Help But Bop Along To

Children’s Theme Tunes That You Can’t Help But Bop Along To

As me and a friend sat having a hot drink yesterday whilst the kids played our conversation, as always, turned to the boys and what they are now into. Both have suddenly become more grown-up and their attitudes and tastes are definitely reflecting this. We were cracking up at one another discussing what shows we now have to endure instead of the far too familiar sound of Peppa Pig and one thing we both noticed was that we had a secret love of singing and bopping about to the children’s theme tunes of these shows they are now watching.

Making Learning Fun with Little House of Science

*Collaborative Post

Back in the day, when I was at school, you were there to learn and this meant the classes were usually pretty serious. I always did well in the interactive classes– Music, Science, English– but I struggled with Maths from the start. For me, it was always explained in a very complicated way. If I can relate information I am given to practical situations and it seems logical to me I can take it all in and learn and perhaps if it had all been made more fun I may have been much more engaged. It wasn’t until I failed my Maths GCSE and had to re-do a year at college that I found a teacher who finally made it all ‘click’. Continue reading “Making Learning Fun with Little House of Science”

Our Trip to Little Street

Little Street is an indoor play centre with a twist:

“Responding to children’s love of role play, we have created a realistic street designed with little people in mind. Featuring a supermarket, construction site, cafe, beauty salon, fire service, medical centre and more; our Little Street is a scaled down version of a typical town, inspiring children to explore life in the world around them”

Little Street Website

After I featured it in my post 10 Activities To Do With Your Kids In The Winter I felt that it was only right that I visited Little Street and found out exactly how good it was for myself… we were not disappointed.

Halloween Fun at Wellington Country Park

Halloween may not be for everyone but for me it is one of my favourite times of the year. This is most probably down to the fact that my birthday is the next day and I always loved to celebrate it as a child with a Halloween themed party.

Even now, each year I decorate the house, buy pumpkins and get the treats in for the trick or treaters. As Halloween tends to fall inside or just after half term it is gradually turning into a larger event and that is absolutely fine by me!

The Importance of Getting Kids Gardening

Gardening, for me, has developed into a big hobby over the last 5 years or so. Once you get the bug for it, it can become so therapeutic, fun, can capture your imagination and allow you to start designing. I am a novice and definitely still have a lot to learn, but that should not stop anybody from starting up, even if you only have a few pots.

We love discovering new areas, researching where is good with kids and getting to know new places. This Easter was no exception and we found so many fun activities to do with children, that I thought I’d document it for you all.
