This Fall/Autumn Activities, Crafts and Food Roundup is a showcase for all my favourite Autumn things to do with kids and as a family.

There is nothing better for Mother’s Day than a gift from the heart and as a Mum, this free printable mother’s day coupon book is my idea of heaven in a coupon. Mother’s Day has always been the day that my children take charge of the gift-giving and I would take an item of this coupon that a physical gift any day.

Can you feel Spring in the air yet? I think I can and I have started thinking about Spring crafts for kids and spring crafts for preschoolers. We have a fabulous selection of crafts that kids will love here. I love Spring, the garden is filled with vibrant colour after a long, cold winter and the days are getting longer fast. I LOVE spring because it means more outdoor time, butterflies, birds, bugs, flowers and spring showers.
