Fun Additions to Your Garden That Your Kids Will Love

Out of all the places in the home, the garden is perhaps the most magical and mysterious for children when they’re young. If you have a large garden, then it could seem like a forest to their young innocent eyes, but there are times when our gardens are just dull, boring and lifeless because we simply didn’t put the time and effort into them. If you want to give your kids a backyard wonderland to explore and become inspired by, then here are a couple of fun and unique additions to add to your garden.

How To Get Your Family Back In The Garden

Picture Source We’ve all been there. Maintaining a garden is difficult, and once you let standards slip it becomes hard to find the motivation to get back out there. The overgrown weeds, dying plants, and tacky, old garden furniture are all things which aren’t quite as appealing anymore; there’s little to motivate the family to relax in the garden on a warm summer’s day or any kind of day, for that matter. Still, much like giving that cluttered living room or the broken cabinets in the kitchen a makeover, you’ll thank yourself for tackling that unappealing task later. Here are… [Read More]

Fun-filled Half-Term Ideas to Keep Kids Busy

With half term almost upon us, parents are getting panicky about what to do during the break.  I’m sure we’d all love to just stay home, build blanket dens and eat pizza all week, but unfortunately, employers aren’t so liberal when it comes to doling out week-long holidays.  So what to do with the kids?  It’s important to find them something that will keep them busy, but not anything so nonsensical that it will deter them from the inevitable stack of homework (or destroy the house!).  As a compromise, I’ve thought up a list of fun and educational activities to… [Read More]

Car Safety Tips for Travelling with Kids

With new changes in the laws regarding car seats for children I thought now would be a good time to address this, along with some other car safety tips when travelling with children. The new child car seat laws mean that manufacturers aren’t allowed to introduce new models of backless booster seats for children shorter than 125cm or weighing less than 22kg. This means companies will only be able to manufacture new backless booster products for children over 125cm tall or heavier than 22kg, which ever comes first. The reason behind this is because backless car seats offer less protection in the event… [Read More]

Traveling With A Timid Child

Image source For children, traveling should be an exciting time. It should be an opportunity to explore new horizons, see the world outside of their own and gain experiences that you can only learn through doing rather than seeing. It makes sense that, as parents, you want your children to be able to travel and enjoy the time you spend away. Of course, there are some children for whom the idea might be more difficult. Whether it be because of special needs or just a general timidity about the world around them, for some children, they need their comfort zone…. [Read More]
