Loch Lomond Faerie Trail

Loch Lomond Faerie Trail is one of the first in my series of free activities for toddlers. For more information on the series, and why I'm doing it, see this post.

Free Toddler Activities and Attractions

As a toddler mum, I'm always looking for new ways to keep my little man entertained. There's only so many episodes of Hey Duggee or visits to the soft play one can take without contemplating spiking your own coffee - even if the wee fella is quite content to watch and do the same thing… Continue reading Free Toddler Activities and Attractions

Homemade Father’s Day Gifts for Kids

So following on from my homemade Mother's Day gifts post in March, I thought it only fair that the dads/gradands/papas get the same treatment! I've based the gifts on both the kind of ability a toddler can join in on, and on the kind of things I think the men in Travis' life would appreciate.… Continue reading Homemade Father’s Day Gifts for Kids

Bringing back some of the nostalgia, I'm hoping to spread the joy to Travis and start a new Easter tradition for us.

Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

Because no matter what age, you're still someone's child! While my ideas of gifts are a bit further reaching… Continue reading Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

Baby and Toddler Swimming Lessons

One of my favourite all-weather activities for Travis is his swimming lessons. We've taken him since he was around 5-6 months old, and he absolutely loves it. Having grown from the baby classes into the toddler classes, it's easy to see progress in terms of his abilities in the water, but also his confidence in… Continue reading Baby and Toddler Swimming Lessons

Mother’s Day Crafts for Toddlers

I can't believe I'm almost celebrating my second Mother's Day as a parent - time really does fly when you're having fun! I don't know about you, but Mother's Day for me is more than just a card and gift kind of holiday, it's about really giving back. It could be because my birthday is… Continue reading Mother’s Day Crafts for Toddlers
