As a mum of two young toddlers I am constantly searching for ways to keep them occupied, amused and stimulated without resorting to tv. Don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a place for tv – Harrison has learnt so much from cbeebies and when I need to do housework it’s a lifesaver! As a teacher, I’m aware of the importance of learning but more importantly, the value of creativity, imagination, play and fun!
This blog came about because of a negative comment I received on Facebook about posting photos of the activities I do with the boys, but the positive response I had from family and friends on Facebook and Instagram was overwhelming, with people saying I gave them ideas to do things with their own kids. With that in mind, I set up a Facebook group Activities 4 Kidz and then this blog, to share ideas.
