This is going to be an interesting section :) I can’t explain (though I’m sure many of you will agree) how hard it can be to keep toddlers and children entertained!

There’s only so many games you can play with them before they get bored and you’re left struggling to think of stimulating things to do with them.

So then you go online and start researching fun things to do with the kids, and though you find lots of ideas, you rarely get around to actually doing any of them, because sometimes it can be a real pain trying all these new things that have no guarantee of being a success, and it’s much easier to go back to the tried and tested safety nets that you know will work.

But of course they only last for so long, and so you’re back to square one, and the cycle continues.

Well, this is where me and my men become useful!

I’ve decided to be a guinea pig and try out lots of different indoor and outdoor toddler and child friendly activities and then report back here to show you all how successful they are; how fun/easy/doable they can be :)

Many people think it’s too commercial, too Americanised and many disagree with the notion of children knocking on stranger’s doors begging for sweets. I can understand that, I appreciate that […]
