The other weekend we took a family trip with our under 3’s to Legoland at Windsor and I have to say that despite being with the 2 little ones we had a great time. Noah was able to go on many things and there was quite a lot to do for Isla too.

We had an incredible day at Legoland today. Noah loved it and luckily he is just 0.9 metres so he could go on rides which he was over the moon about. His favourite being the scarab ride.
As any parent will relate, keeping the kids toys tidy in the house can be hardwork. Making sure you have the right storage options and also making sure the toys are accessible to the children. We decided bunk beds saved us the best amount of space at the moment, as the children share a room. When we buy our own house and the children have their own bedrooms, this will not be the case. So I am starting to look at options that will be perfect for saving space.
The toys in this house are everywhere. It’s the smallest ones that cause me the most problems though: Lego! We’ve all seen that doodle online where the Mum is stepping on Lego all the time. That’s our house. Noah is a typical boy, loves his Lego and Cars. Isla loves her dolls and soft toys. Keeping them all tidy is hard work, so I like to make life easy by having the right storage.
Today has been super chilled, I’ve had time to relax and crochet, watch a bit of Dexter, played games with the kids. I loved watching them do Noah’s Lego together. They have never done this before! They’ve been brilliant this weekend, I wonder if it’s because we’ve had a chilled one.
I find it hard to get out shopping, so I frequently miss the trends or what is hot in the shops. I like to find out what is popular, or too cool for school! So I thought I would put together this helpful list of great toys for children this Christmas. They are not expensive and a variety of toys for primary school ages. So here is the 2017 toy gift guide:
I like to set myself tasks, sometimes they are tiny things and sometimes very large tasks. The Summer Holidays are great as there is no rushing around on the school runs. This usually means I can get more done, as I am around the home a bit more than term time. With that in mind, I have a mini bucket list of things to do in the Summer Holidays around our family home. Some of these tasks would be a fun thing to do with the kiddies too.
Kids love to see how things work and craft their own creations, so building is a fun pastime for parents to share with their little ones to have fun and help them develop. Of course, actual construction and real tools can be dangerous for children, so there are only certain kinds of building activities that would be suitable for playtime. Some games like Jenga focus on structural design and challenge you to build properly to maintain the stability of the blocks. Even without a designated board game or special building materials, kids tend to find ways to build things out of whatever they can find. Thus, to keep their hands out of mischief and give yourselves something cool to do as a family, consider the following seven kinds of building projects that are kid-friendly:
Today it was Daddy day care, I came home to a completely packed car, ready for camping tomorrow. The kids looked like they had had lots of fun at home with Daddy! I captured them comparing Lego Create the World books from Sainsbury’s. They have nearly got all the cards, I think there will be some swapping with friends coming on!
I unleashed the Sharpies with little Isla today and she was really good with them… We coloured in some of her LEGO friends magazine, it was very therapeutic. It was nice to have some mindfulness time with my little lady!
