Homelearning made fun with Learning Resources #competition

We are big fans of Learning Resources in the Constant household, they have some incredible resources that are fun, engaging and aid education. The perfect concoction for homelearning and lockdown.

Fun LEGO lockdown activities #letsbuildtogether

We all love LEGO in the Constant house, it's the one thing that I still do now as a grown up that I did as a child (apart from making pretend restaurants of course).

Creating a pretend restaurant at home during lockdown

This was a big hit with our little ones over the Easter weekend: Daddy turned the dining room into a pretend restaurant and created a menu for them to choose their dinners.

Brightening up our learning with homeschooling stationery

Brightening up our learning with homeschooling stationery

Yes, I have a small obsession with stationery and so I thought it was only right to brighten up the kiddies homeschooling by getting them some new bits and pieces.

Here are my favourite Paperchase items to add some fun for after the Easter holidays, it's a back to school haul if you will. VIEW the POST

Day 1 of homeschooling complete

Day 1 of homeschooling complete

It might sound crazy to celebrate Day 1 of homeschooling, it is important to me to give ourselves a pat on the back though. Yesterday was the first day I had to do the combined homeschooling and working from home thing. It was lots of fun and stressful, all in one. But I think the stress was only due to the pressure I put upon myself. VIEW the POST

Doing something for yourself with home learning

Finding the time to do something for yourself, selfishly, when you are a parent can be a struggle or sometimes feel impossible. It really doesn’t have to be and it’s taken me a good few months of deliberating to work this out. I have been offered the chance to complete a home learning course with NCC, to do something for myself and who knows where it might lead. I am hoping a better knowledge of the world around me in terms of blog and day time job will make me do better!
