It's almost time to be thinking of the end of the school year. Not yet, but almost. This blog post has some rather lovely ideas for teachers gifts. Unique, unusual and sweet.
You may not be allowed to use your old toilet rolls in nursery schools anymore - health and safety, didn't ya know! - but you can still use them at home, as this here website shows with it's host of toilet paper roll crafts.
Where have the days of leisurely lunches gone? I miss them, and am grateful they'll be back some day soon! In the meantime, here are 10 Restaurant Waiting Games For Kids.
It's sometimes really hard to know what to do with your one year old! They're in that inbetween phase where they can't do much independently, but are too small for just lying on the play gym. This post has 15 independent activities to do with one year olds, which is a great help!
Bath time is so much fun in our house, but no where near as fun as this! Actually I feel quite bad about every plain and boring bath ever. Here are 20 baths that are quick and easy to set up. Enjoy!
Thinking of summer evenings, barbecues and children playing in the garden, I thought these firefly crafts are such a lovely idea for an evening garden party! Actually I could see a kids party turned adult party (my birthday is two days before my oldest daughter's) featuring these as a kids party craft, decorating the garden for the adult party. What a cute idea!
It's a few weeks now to the next half term and a little while yet till summer, but there's no harm in being prepared, and this blog post, filled with printable travel games, will help you get ready for your next trip.
What's in a box? Ikatbag has a post full of fabulous ideas of things to make with boxes! She has a postbox, puppet show, dog kennel, pirate ship and more. Seriously, I could see my children going mad for these! One way to spend a rainy spring day.
There's sunshine in my neck of the woods today, and I'm almost tempted to go outside and cut the grass. And maybe weed a little. That temptation normally fades when I open the door and find the sunshine didn't bring any warmth though. If you're braver than me, here's a fun list of activities to do with toddlers in the garden.
This is such a sweet, simple and free idea. You just need a bag, and you can fill it with bath foams or random toys from around the house, or even buy one of the ELC storyboards. If you want to put a bit of effort in, cut out pictures from a children's magazine, even. Place them all in the bag, and draw out a picture at a time, making up the story as you go!
Do you know what sensory play is? I've never really understood the purpose, but my daughter loves it. This list from (a pretty new blog) Two Cheeky Frogs is great for sensory box ideas.
We have a bit of a break now between observances and days, so its time to sort things out at base camp, isn't it. I love this idea for slow and steady spring cleaning, you know, without breaking much of a sweat!
Tomorrow is officially the first day of Spring. Congratulations! You made it through another winter! Why not use this cute Grassy Haired Friend as a fun project for introducing gardening to young children?
