*Ad

Having two children who love to keep busy means that I am always on the lookout for plenty of fun activities that will not only challenge them but also bring them joy so when Julia from Treasure Seasons Project Boxes asked if we would like to review her summer box I was thrilled. With 12 well-thought-out projects aimed at all ages, a 50-page detailed magazine with clear instructions and photos as well as nearly all the tools you’ll need to carry each activity out, this bumper box seemed absolutely perfect for my boys. This is how we got on…

We all know that finding the right childcare for the kid’s school breaks can be a bit of a task. Not only do you have to work out the logistics of getting your child/children to Grandparent’s homes, the childminder, to friends and so on, you also have that worry that their full needs may not be met and that they won’t get enough mental stimulation or exercise being away from school. Being a parent brings so many decisions and guilt, doesn’t it? But have you ever considered a kids activity day camp instead of the other usual options?

Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!

Unless you haven’t been following me for very long, you’ll know that we have just had the holiday of a lifetime in Florida (I may have mentioned it once or twice!) I’ve been on Instagram sharing my brilliant photos, I’ve popped some albums up on my personal Facebook page and I’ve even written a few blogs in the couple of weeks since coming home but there was something that wasn’t documented, there were things I didn’t want to take photos of and there were memories I am going to block out forever. Yes, my kids still acted like kids! Continue reading “Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!”
