Encouraging Creativity With My Little World

AD | Gifted During the week when Erin is at nursery I know that she is doing lots of fun and creative things with her friends and teachers and I don’t have to worry about screen time. However, now that we’re in the middle of the summer holidays I am constantly looking for new things to do with Erin that don’t include sitting and watching videos on YouTube too often. While I have no problem with Erin using her tablet for some down time I obviously don’t like her being on it all of the time. I was recently introduced

Travel Sized Entertainment For The Whole Family

Being non-drivers we use public transport a lot. If we go for a weekend or few days away we have to get the train and even if we go on holiday we have to get the train to London first. It can be hard sometimes to take enough entertainment for when we travel, and also for our time in hotels, as some things can be bulky and heavy. We recently discovered Printkick where we got a great range of items for me, John and Erin! We all enjoy doing some colouring to kill some time while travelling, especially on the train

Free Activities For Children On A Haven Holiday

Earlier this year we went on our first ever Haven holiday to Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk. Something we were interested in was the different activities suitable for Erin and more importantly, the free activities. We got a great deal on our break and we didn’t want to spend too much money while we were there. As Erin hadn’t ever done anything like this on holiday before we didn’t want to pay for lots of activities she didn’t enjoy. So, I thought I’d share some of the free activities for children on a Haven holiday (please check they’re available at the site

18 Things To Do In 2018!

Last year I feel like we went away an awful lot, probably too much. Due to Erin’s traumatic birth we really didn’t do anything much at all in 2016 and I really wanted to make up for that last year. While going away is lovely and I do love going, I would also really like to do some more things a bit closer to home. We live in beautiful Norfolk and there is so much to do here. There will still be a few holidays thrown in to the mix as well… for good measure of course. I thought I would

Winter Boredom Busters For Toddlers & Giveaway

We’re now at the end of November and it’s pretty cold outside now! Erin and I get stuck indoors a lot of the time due to not being able to drive; we don’t want to get soaked before we even get somewhere! However, spending a few days in a row indoors with a nearly 2 year old means constantly having to think of fun and different things to do so they don’t get bored. Addo Play have some great winter boredom busters for toddlers we’ve been trying some of them out lately. Erin will soon be starting nursery and we’re

Visiting Center Parcs On A Budget

I was very lucky to have some good advice from Katy from Katykicker.com before my first holiday to Center Parcs. Without a few tips from her, I could have ended up spending loads of money that I really didn’t need to. Now, having been myself I thought I’d share with you some ways to save money during your holiday! Book meals in advance For quite a few of the restaurants at Center Parcs you can book your meals in advance online. To do this, you need to pay a £5 deposit per person. However this money is taken off your
