I love crafts that I can do along side my kids and this DIY money box was a great craft that we could all enjoy. After all, why should the kids get to do all the fun stuff! With the start of a new year I’m always keen to make sure that as a family we all try and be a bit more financially savvy, whether it’s with me making sure that I save enough for the school holidays or making sure that the kids know that toys and sweets don’t just magically appear when you ask for them. These DIY money boxes are a great way to have fun crafting together while also having a sneaky little chat about money! I’m also sharing 6 of my favourite DIY money box ideas today so make sure you check those out at the end of the post too!
My kids have always loved messy play activities and from all the parent and toddler groups I’ve visited over the years I know they’re not alone!
I must admit that over the last year I’ve become a bit obsessed with glamping. We’d been before in Essex but once we moved to the South West it seemed like the perfect way to explore, get the kids outside and of course have fun! There are loads of places to go glamping in Cornwall but these are some of my favourites – all of these glamping sites are places that we’ve been to or are on our to-do list to visit shortly!
When I was younger I used to love New Years Eve, lots of fun going out and making some noise! Now I’m older my going out has, err… pretty much stopped but I do have two small people who like to stay up late, party and have fun! There’s no reason why New Years Eve should be all about the grown ups so with that in mind I’ve rounded up these fun New Years Eve activities for kids so they can join in too!
Last week I got some awesome mail though the post, and even though I felt a little bit sorry for my postman who had carried this around, boy was I happy that he did!
