I love smaller outlets online, who sell gifts that can be personalised. One of the places I have discovered recently is BookBlock and their range of personalised puzzles.
We had some lovely weather at the weekend, so nice, that we were able to have a picnic in the garden with friends for the first time since the first COVID lockdown in march 2020. It was a glorious day and everyone enjoyed themselves eating and drinking and playing games in the garden. Days like this all together are so lovely.
As a parent it can be hard sometimes to find the balance between allowing your children to try a range of things and spending money on things they don’t stick at. Of course we all want them to try new things, and trying things is how they come to find hobbies that they really enjoy and want to stick at. However, there is equally nothing more frustrating than buying some expensive kit that never sees the light of day. Hands up if you’ve been there!
Whatever your situation, you will no doubt be thinking ahead to the Easter Holidays and what you will and won’t be able to do with your children under the current Welsh Government Restrictions.
With more snow forecast over the next couple of weeks and some icy weather on its way, I thought I would put together a quick list of the important things to keep in mind when children are playing in the snow. We want this to be a fun experience for everyone, not one where everyone ends up crying or moaning!
It’s taken me a good few years of muddy, wet, welly walks with the children to figure out which the best socks are for this purpose, but this is what I’ve discovered.
Come and have fun on the farm. Grab your coloured pencils, smell that country air and explore farmyards and fields full of chirpy chickens, prancing pigs, cavorting cows, noisy tractors, friendly farmers and much more besides.
Lockdown and home schooling has been difficult for adults and children alike, so why not bring some fun and enjoyment to February half term. Although your little ones may be bored of staying at home by now, there are still a few things to look forward to and plenty of ways to make it enjoyable for your children!
