We're very much looking forward to our Summer Holiday Club during the last two weeks of the summer holidays in August.
That period of the year can be quite daunting for parents. Six weeks for state schools and eight weeks for private schools to fill! Once you factor in a holiday away, perhaps a few days with the grandparents and the odd play date, there will still be weeks to fill whilst us parents have to go to work!
So why not book in with us?
In terms of what...Read Full Post »

If, like with my kids, your children insist on having packed lunches every day at school, it can be a bit of an effort for many reasons. Firstly, you have to actually make it and that adds more busoness to your already busy schedule as a working parent. Also, it's hard to keep it varied sometimes apart from the usual sandwiches, crisps and fruit. AND, all that packaging can add even more environmentally un-friendly waste.
So, how do we make the kids packed lunches environmentally friend...Read Full Post »

I've always believed that art is freedom. It has no boundaries, can be completely unique, it's aimed at everyone and it has its own language.
My daughter, Lola, who's 9, has recently really got in to painting. At home, she often just quietly gets out an old newspaper from the recycling bin, spreads it out on the dining table and just starts painting.
The other day, she painted lots of random sized shapes with different colours. I said to her, 'Wow that's great Lola, what's it mean...Read Full Post »

It feels like summer has arrived today and it's half term, hoorah! And despite the usual connotations with warm weather: getting your shorts on, BBQ's, sunbathing, etc. this is the perfect opportunity to get your kids away from the telly, thier tablets and PS4's and get them outdoors.
The other day I had a lovely time with my kids cycling. We went through two local parks, had a picnic, had fun in the playground, bought some bird feed and fed the ducks, then raced back home and felt grea...Read Full Post »

There's been a lot of press coverage recently about Climate Change. This is now a real and present danger to the future of our planet and it's time for us all to do our bit so we can (literally) save our planet.
Recently, a client asked me which plastic and other products we use as she was conscious about plastic waste and wanted to teach her daughter to try and avoid plastic where possible. This is generally so difficult as so much that we consume generally include plastic! I reassured...Read Full Post »

What a welcome relief, I imagine, that we are now embarking on a four day break. And whatever your religious beliefs, having a long weekend with your family is always an attractive prospect.
For those of us lucky enough to get away, whether it's somewhere hot like a beach in the South of France or the outer echelons of the North Yorkshire moors, no doubt you will have plenty of activtiies to do with the kids.
But what if you're just staying at home? Have you thought of how y...Read Full Post »
