Summer holidays, you either love them or hate them. I am never sure about which camp I am in. I love spending time with the children but do worry about the cost of summer activities. I relish not having to get up each morning and giving up the school routine, but I don’t like hearing the words “I’m Bored” That is why I came up with the bored jar (about four years ago).
One of the things that I love about the school holidays is the amount of time we get to spend together as a family and it reminds me that I need to make time for the kids during term time.
Autumn is a lovely time of year to enjoy activities outside as a family, and kids don’t have to look far to find fun things to do as the hot summer days disperse and the leaves change colour and fall.
We are loving the beautiful weather this summer and making the most of it with some fab DIY giant garden games. I love garden games for keeping kids off electronics and as they are perfect for families to play as a group.
There is something magical about fairy gardens. To have your own little world with fairies, plants, moss, doors furniture and a little bit of pixie dust. As an adult, I have a huge love for fairy gardens and I know that they enchant most children too. They are also a great way to encourage children to garden.
