We were sent a craft pack with our very own Gnomes to paint and sparkle, also some beautiful aprons - including the Gnome print apron.  VIEW the POST

Creating a storytime corner in a little girls bedroom

When Dulux sent me this storytime theme idea for a child’s bedroom, I knew instantly that it would be perfect for little Isla and her love of stories. It turned out just how I visioned it, with her little Ollie and Leila bean bag chair in the corner.

I know the ball pool is a general play thing but balls are very boyish. He loves it though. I love the way Noah socialises with the other tots, he watches them very closely, especially at song time 🙂 he loves singing at home time! He watches in ore at all the other children spinning and singing along with the play group leader. I wonder what he’s thinking? Is he contemplating how he does…
