If there are any parents out there, like me, thinking there is only 6 weeks until the Summer Holidays. It is essential to plan your time. Especially if you are needing to take annual leave and book kids clubs. It is really tricky to plan quite so far in advance, you can never guarantee the weather is going to be perfect. Here are some fun activities you can do spare of the moment, any day of the holidays.

Between the candy, costumes, and parties, Halloween is a holiday that can take a surprising toll on your bank account, especially in our house! If you want to get in the spirit by dressing up your house in spooky finery, but want to make sure you have money left in your pocket for Christmas, here are a few tips to help you save on the creepiest, coolest Halloween décor.
Did you know that wildlife populations worldwide have declined by 52% since 1970? WWF with its #WearitWild are raising awareness about this decline so that we can raise money to help them protect precious species and their habitats. Like the tiger, 95% of wild tigers have disappeared in the last century taking the total number to just 3,200 in 2010. How can there be just over 3,000 tigers left in the wild?
Isla absolutely adores Cinderella at the moment, the Disney classic version and we went to the cinema to see the new film which is amazing. She was also very lucky to receive some beautiful goodies from the Disney Store to help her celebrate her love for Princess Cinderella and princesses in general.
We love dressing up in the Constant household, and if you saw my husbands #icebucketchallenge recently you will see where it all stems from, we have a dressing up box with lots of fun items in it but the best outfits are ones we were recently sent from Jokers Masquerade. Jake and the Neverland pirate and Tinkerbell – amazingly adorable outfits for my little ones.
Halloween was great fun this year and Isla’s first, Noah dressed up as Dracula that Daddy got him last year and Isla was a skeleton that Nanny & Grandad bought her. I think she liked her outfit, I know she probably didn’t even notice anything was different, bless her, but I thought she looked very cute and the suit was really cosy. It was a cold Halloween’s day and in Cornwall it was chucking it down, so I am glad she had a nice warm outfit to snuggle in. It was funny though as soon as I took the outfit off – she had black fluff all in between her toes! It made me chuckle. How can you be scared of a little beaut like this?
