How To Make A Minibeast Hotel

The good weather may have deserted us, but Summer isn't quite over yet! There are still plenty of days out to be had as a family, one last Summer holiday weekend to enjoy and visit festivals or fun days.

Natural Childhood

Dams and Damselflies

We spent last week on holiday in Cornwall at one of our favourite places; Coombe Mill. This little slice of Heaven on Earth is the perfect place to revitalise and refresh, to reconnect with family and to nature.

Inkredible: The Easiest Printer In The World (Review)

I have had a bit of a love-hate relationship with printers over the years. As a teacher they are an indispensable resource; I can't tell you how many letters and labels have been printed out for display purposes, let alone instruction sheets and activity cards, photos for display and children's books. I try to print […]

"All Was Quiet…" 'Gruffalo's Child' Pyjamas (Review)

The Summer in Britain is a tricky one when it comes to children, particularly at night. They're either too hot and become sweaty, or the temperature plummets at night (like it has done in the past week) and then they are left cold and shivering in the middle of the night. When The Boy was […]
