The 7 year old is really into crafts" I sent her a list of toys/games/crafts which I'd be happy to recommend for both gi...

Stationery that will make your friends jealous!

Stationery that will make your friends jealous!

I can't believe that this time in 3 weeks, I'll be packing school lunches and putting out the school uniforms! The summer holidays are flying by and before I know it, they'll be over. I have very mixed feelings about school. I won't deny that I love having mornings to myself and uninterrupted time t...

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.

Travel Activities for 7 and 8 Year Olds

Travel Activities for 7 and 8 Year Olds

It seems only fitting, after writing my last two blogs, to follow up with one for older children.  Personally, I find travelling and entertaining older children less work. Partly because I enjoy some of the activities/games that they enjoy (I guess I'm just a big kid at heart). So, here are 10 a...

Travel Activities for 3 and 4 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...
