As the old saying goes: life goes on. That doesn’t just mean that you should leave the past behind you, but that you should be prepared for the present and future to sweep you along. You need to make sure that you’re ready for whatever comes your way. Of course, when you have a family, you might feel as though your life should be more static and stable. It’s ironic then that this is the time when you may well find the most, and most significant, changes occurring in all of your lives. The key is to be prepared for them so that you can hit the ground running when they do. With that in mind, here are three important steps your family will probably take during your life.
With 4th of July coming up I thought it would be fun to share this easy paper bag craft for kids with you. We love crafts using materials that are easily available or crafting with recycled materials so this Uncle Sam kids craft is perfect. Although we like in the UK rather than the USA I love teaching my kids about other countries celebrations and traditions, frankly they love any excuse to make something and have a bit of a celebration. This craft is also great because you can use it as a puppet once you’ve made it too so it’s perfect for keeping the kids busy and happy! As well as this cool craft I’ve shared loads more fun 4th July crafts for kids and American flag crafts so make sure you check them all out at the end of this post.
With the sun shining and summer finally reaching us it’s a great time to go strawberry picking in Essex. Although we’ve recently moved away from the area we’ve had some great times strawberry picking in Essex and there are probably more PYO farms than where we live now! We’ve visited a few of the ones below but the others are recommendations or fruit farms on our to-do list and frankly they all sound fantastic.
With half term upon us it’s the perfect opportunity to get the kids outside in the garden. They get some fresh air and fun, you get them away from staring at a screen and still get to sit around with a cup of tea, sounds like a win win situation to me! Today I’m working alongside Wayfair to share my ten favourite games for kids to play in the garden, there’s a great mix of things you can do for free, classic games they’ll love and umm… one rather oversized game that I’d desperately love too so as long as the weather stays dry I’m sure there will be something that’s perfect for your kids too.
Fathers Day is just round the corner so today I’m sharing this cute little Fathers Day printable that I’ve designed, you can print it off for free and it’s a fun thing for the kids to fill out and give to their dad on the day!
