Number Fishing Tuff Spot

Number Fishing Tuff Spot

It is #RhymeTime again and this fortnights Nursery Rhyme is “1,2,3,4,5 Once I Caught A Fish Alive”. As the rhyme involves numbers it is obviously one of Adam’s favourites. (This post contains affiliate links) We decided to create a number fishing Tuff Spot. First we needed a boat. We recently bought Adam a Build Your Own Play Centre for his birthday. The versatile construction kit allows you to make a house, a tent, football goal or a boat. It is easy to build – even I was able to follow the instructions and create the boat! To create the sea out...

Yellow Car Game Busy Bag

Are you travelling this Summer with little ones? Do you need to occupy your children on a long car journey? Then we have just the thing. We have teamed up with bloggers from around the world to bring you a Little Travellers Busy Bag Blog Hop. During a car journey my family like to play ‘The Yellow Car Game’.

Top 10 Summer Water Walls

Top 10 Summer Water Walls

Summer is just around the corner, although it is pouring down with rain in the UK whilst I am writing. Last year Adam’s favourite summer activity was our DIY water wall. It was made from recycled plastic bottles so it didn’t cost us anything to make. Adam spent many happy hours playing and experimenting with different ways to get the water to fall through the bottles . If you are looking to create your own water wall this summer then we have just the thing for you. Here are our Top 10 Summer Water Walls: We love the different types of recycled materials Where...

Little Raindrop Storytelling Basket

The Summer in the UK, especially here in Norfolk, is yet to start. Adam is still wearing his winter coat and it is currently pouring down with rain. Despite dreams of a warm summer and spending hours playing in the garden it is best to have some indoor activities up your sleeve ‘just in case’ we have too many rainy days. Luckily, Something 2 Offer is hosting a fantastic A to Z Rainy Day Activities series to give you lots of ideas. We have the letter R – our chance to make a rain inspired story telling basket.

Dry Like Me Review + WIN

Dry Like Me Review + WIN

Potty training is something I have dreaded. I have heard several horror stories of defiant toddlers, many many accidents and it taking weeks or months of wet clothes. Adam wasn’t displaying any signs of readiness – in fact we had bought a potty when Adam was 18 months old and we were yet to get him to sit on it. Adam also lacked the communication skills needed to tell us when he needed to go to the toilet. However, as Adam neared his third birthday and we had the Easter holiday to try potty training away from the usual day to day distractions we decided to...
Hyperemesis Gravidarum Awareness Day 2015

Hyperemesis Gravidarum Awareness Day 201...

How quickly time flies when you are not suffering from HG. It doesn’t seem five minutes ago since 2014’s Hyperemesis Gravidarum Awareness Day yet every second of my HG pregnancy with Adam was torture. I spent 245 days vomiting and was bed bound the entire time. This year I created my third HG Awareness Day video for Pregnancy Sickness Support, a charity I am extremely proud to be a trustee of. Each year I believe making the video will get easier, yet each year I sit with tears streaming down my face. I never got to see how bad I looked during my pregnancy. The...
