Take this opportunity to teach moneymaking craft projects that are both fun and profitable. Continue reading “3 Profitable Craft Projects to Keep Kids Creative during Quarantine”

*Contains Amazon Affiliate links

Even though home learning was sprung on us due to the Covid-19 lockdown, I’ve actually found it quite good fun coming up with different activities for the boys each day. I know it can be really hard when you have more than one child and it is even harder when their age gaps are that little bit bigger as not everything can be done by each of them. With this in mind, I’ve had no option but to find fun activities for both children to get involved with. This usually results in me setting something a little more challenging Continue reading “11 Fun Space Themed Home Learning Activities”

7 Chicken Pox Survival Activities Tried and Tested

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that last week we were hit with the dreaded chicken pox. I knew it was going to be a tricky period because I have one of the most active children I have ever met and he wasn’t unwell with the spots. He had been pretty run down in the lead up to it but this had passed and he was still his usual ‘ants in his pants’ self. With that in mind, I turned to some fellow bloggers to find out what brilliant chicken pox survival activities they had previously written about or could recommend Continue reading “7 Chicken Pox Survival Activities Tried and Tested”

Review: Room on the Broom

*Gifted Tickets

When I heard that the ‘Room on the Broom’ production was coming to The Haymarket Theatre in Basingstoke, I just knew we had to go and see it. Julia Donaldson’s books have become a popular choice in our house along with the films, so to be able to see one brought to life on the stage I thought it was the perfect first show for Jake to attend.
