Two of my favourite hashtags on Instagram are #Nochildleftindoors and #Lastchildinthewoods. I love the days where I’ve had occasion to use them, and I love the days where we are the only people walking the woodland paths. The downside of these much-loved hashtags when you have young children, however, is that I have to get out from under my duvet, dress up like the Michellin-man, and get out in the woods with them – which I generally enjoy, but only when I’m kitted out right.

You don’t have to scroll back too far through our pages to know that we’re huge Project MC2 fans around here, and have more than a few of the products in our collection. The latest to amuse my girls is the Smart Pixel Purse.
I saw a picture of mitten Christmas tree ornaments and thought it would be a really sweet way of tracking growth in the early years, but also a personalised gift tag that can be kept by adding the child’s name and age so we set about making just that: personalised mitten gift tags.

I can’t really believe we’re already at the ‘Christmas crafts’ stage of the year’s Bostik Bloggers, but here we are! We don’t even have a Christmas tree yet, but we have been making ornaments using the goodies from our Bostik Bloggers craft box.
I seem to have amassed a collection of polystyrene balls and stars over the last year, and thought they might make a nice Christmas tree ornament – specially since they’re shatter proof and won’t add much weight to the Christmas ornament box.
My girls are very independent and can happily get lost in their own role-play games for hours. So long as I provide fresh water and some snacks from time to time, they can spend whole blocks of days lost in their small world game play – you know, where the toys in front of them are a whole world? Some of their favourites for pretend play right now are a dolls house and a play kitchen, but over time there have been other favourites, like a parking garage with a vehicle lift and a wooden tree toy with platforms and swings.
I thought I’d share some of the best luxury role-play gifts for kids that they’ll come back to again and again.

As the old saying goes, there’s an app for everything! When you’re expecting, there are plenty apps to help you out. Great pregnancy apps offer smart tips, important health information, and a whole lot more, including some unexpected surprises. Some are even designed with the needs of dads-to-be in mind! We’ve scoured Google Play and the App Store to bring you five worth trying.
I can’t quite believe how quickly the months seem to pass at the moment, but here we are again, ready with our next #BostikBloggers project, this time Bonfire Night Snack Jars that can be used for your fireworks snacking, but we are filling ours with Smores Cheesecake.
The #BostikBlogger theme this month is Bonfire Night, so we wanted to do something with fireworks.
For this craft we used an empty jar and a variety of Bostik Glitter Pens per person.Read more: Bonfire Night Snack Jars #BostikBloggers
By the time you reach week 12, your little one is growing faster than ever – and you’re probably starting to feel a bit hungrier. While you definitely deserve some goodies, it’s important to treat yourself and your baby to the best possible nutrition. With this in mind, here are a dozen ideas for healthy, easy pregnancy snacks.
Whether you’re visiting for New Year’s Eve in Nottingham or are looking for a place to visit during the summer, Nottingham offers fun and excitement for the whole family.
But while the famous heroic outlaw is certainly one of the most popular reasons people visit the Midlands city of Nottingham, once you get there you’ll find there’s plenty more to do and see. A family day trip can easily turn into a weekend break or even a holiday as there’s so much to see and do!
But before you start making plans to explore Sherwood Forest and take a trip to Nottingham Castle, let me share some of my favourite things to do and see. One of the bonuses of home education is the ability to learn ‘hands-on’ is why historic cities like Nottingham are so helpful.
By exploring these cities or even just visiting for a day, children can learn so much! Below I’ve put together a list of some of Nottingham’s seasonal events for the rest of the year and some for next year as well. There’s always something going on in Nottingham. So, whatever time of year your family decides to visit you’ll be sure to find something both fun and educational on offer.Read more: Educational And Exciting Nottingham Is The Place To Go
As you know, we’re big fans of Project MC2 in this house. We’ve had a decent variety of Project MC2 dolls and the Project MC2 Spy Bag is still our favourite from the product range, but my girls were pretty excited by the Project MC2 Crayon Makeup Science Kit.
