Pompom Craft: Spooky Spiders

When I was a child I used to love making pompoms, and have been eagerly waiting for The Boy to have the fine motor skills to get him started on them as well. I've recently spotted a lot of Christmas crafts on Pinterest using pompoms, but decided to make a more seasonal first attempt with The Boy.

Hallowe'en At Hendrewennol

When you find somewhere that works for you as a family, it can be easy to over-visit and wear out your enthusiasm for the place. Hendrewennol is our new favourite place but we're quite fortunate that as it's a pick-your-own fruit farm it is quite seasonal and therefore we can't overdo our visits. We've visited several times this year; for Easter, fruit picking, exploring the maize maze, and pumpkin picking, but this weekend we went to take part in the haunting Hallowe'en activities which the owners had laid on.

P-P-P-Pick Up A Pumpkin

One of our absolute favourite places to visit for easy outdoor fun on a weekend is our local Pick-Your-Own fruit farm. It's a perfect example of diversification, as not only does Hendrewennol have all the usual berries to harvest during the Summer months, but it also has a themed maize maze (this year in the […]

Autumn Treasure Bag

During the month of September, we are forever scavenging for conkers and acorns, finding colourful leaves and spotting squirrels, with our pockets fit to bursting with the fruits of our labour. When we were […]

Trunki PaddlePak (Review)

The Boy has now reached the age where he'll carry around his belongings in a backpack, and he'll do this happily if said backpack is a cute, green, frog-themed one; green being his favourite colour. During the Summer, his absolute favourite bag was the Trunki Paddlepak that he'd been sent to review, and it went […]

Cray-Pas Oil Pastels (Review)

When I was asked by my headteacher to return to work in September as a class teacher (as opposed to a cover teacher as I've done for four years), I was excited. There are some subjects that I have really missed teaching over the past few years and Art is the main one; I studied […]
