I love Bonfire Night, there is nothing better than getting wrapped up and going out to the local bonfire & fireworks display with the kids. I have such happy memories of bonfire night when I was little, it was always such a treat and I want my children to have the same happy memories that I do. Bonfire toffee was always something mum used to make for us to take with us to the local display and I always remember there being hotdogs and delicious jacket potatoes too.Read more
Can you feel it in the air? Autumn is here! I’m sat here with my heating on, curled up under a blanket writing this (working from home does have some benefits!). Today I have a bumper collection of awesome arts and activities for you to do with your children this Autumn. I have tried to cover all ages so there is something for children of all ages… even I wouldn’t mind having a go at some of them.Read more
During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. I can’t believe that I have made it to day 24! I am finding it difficult some days to find the time to sit and write but overall I am just loving it.
Today the prompt is ‘broken bones and X-rays’ but I can’t say I have anything exciting to say about either of those so I’m going to be sharing 15 amazing skeleton crafts just to tie in with the X-ray theme 😉 I’m starting off with a really tasty looking treat 😉 Read more
After covering Halloween last week I thought I’d move right on to Bonfire Night. I love Bonfire night, I do think it should just be kept to one night though as there seems to be many different displays happening for a month or so… It really does make it feel less special.
We always go to our local display which is usually on the 5th November. There are certain things like making toffee that has to happen in our house every year without fail; so I’ve included that and some other awesome activities that you can do in preparation for Bonfire night with your kids.
