4 Ways to Prepare your Child for Pre-School

4 Ways to Prepare your Child for Pre-School

It's hard to believe that we are at the end of July already and that in a months time, the schools and pre-schools will (hopefully) be getting ready to reopen. For most of us, we are used to this routine and look forward to having our mornings to ourselves but for some, this September will bring hug...

Travel Activities for 7 and 8 Year Olds

Travel Activities for 3 and 4 Year Olds

It's hard to believe that school holidays are nearly here and although most of us won't leave Ireland this summer,  I'm sure a lot plan on going away in a caravan/tent, to a summer house, an Airbnb, a hotel or to stay at home but do day trips. With this in  mind, I thought I'd write a short blog w...

Fidget Toys

Fidget Toys

We are in the midst of a new fidget toy craze which includes the popper and the 'remote control'. Although I don't stock either, we have several in our house and I can happily say that they are cool toys. However, I do suspect that in 6 months time, ours will be at the bottom of a drawer along wit...

What can you get for €2?

What can you get for €2?

Not much is what most people would answer to this question! Maybe a cup of tea or coffee, depending on where you buy it. Or a bag of crisps and a small chocolate bar. Let's face it, €2 doesn't go very far any more and yet, it's what a lot of children get for their pocket money. Now, with school ...
