Sorry its been a while.

Sorry its been a while. Life has been busy and I am afraid I have been concentrating on other things happening in my life. I am afraid the website has been temporarily at the bottom of the list.

I do really enjoy writing my blogs and putting the projects on my project page. However I aim to only write when I am fully focussed and not to just tick a box to say I have done it. If you know what I mean. Hopefully, it means I wont just bore you with waffle.  

The boys have been busy back at school, leading to early nights as they have been shattered. There has been lots of playing with cars and vehicles. Take a look at the project section to see Balloon powered Lego vehicles added tonight. This was a surprising and very enjoyable project, the boys and me had lots of fun doing. I highly recommended it you have a child who is Lego mad!

‘Quote/extract: taken from website education.com’

‘Teaching is one of the most challenging and complex jobs on the planet. Our digital resources, tools, and learning materials are developed by educational experts to incorporate leading pedagogical practices. They are useful in any type of teaching moment and many can be used to support national education standards.

Empowered Educators

From school teachers and tutors to home schoolers and parents, engaged adults are the key to unlocking each child’s potential and drive to learn. We empower all kinds of educators to teach kids by providing the best educational resources in any form or device to be used at home, at school, and everywhere in-between.

Unique Experiences

There is no such thing as “one size fits all” in education; each educator and child has unique challenges and goals. We celebrate the diversity of our users by offering differentiated resources that can meet a wide range of educational needs – and raise kids’ confidence in learning.

Conscientious and Supportive

We continue to provide academically sound content of the highest caliber and welcome input from our users as we address issues of equity, diversity, inclusively and representation. Since we know there are many different approaches to teaching and education, we develop our materials to complement these different philosophies across subjects and grades’.

Not just arts and crafts!

Hi with the rain come back to haunt us and Scarlett fever! We have been stuck in doors! Both boys are really into science at the moment

Curious minds! 

So to pass the time we have been revisiting some of our old favourite science experiments and some new. The boys are really curious about volcanos at the moment as they have been studying dinosaurs at school last term. So this project was by far the most exciting. They also loved the t-shirts and colour exploring. These have been added to the project section – Please take a look if you have a child with a curious mind. The aim of my website is all things ‘creative’ some of the topics to be covered in the long-term plan will be simple and affordable Arts and crafts, cooking, science, exploring play and anything else creative. with kids. More science coming along with junk modelling.

Feel free to comment, like, share and follow.

yeah the sun is shining at long last!

Well here we are a few days in to the school Easter holidays. What started as wet meant we have been having fun trying to chill with endless playing- car racetracks building, indoor sleepovers in a tent, marble runs, dvds, reading, the house being taken over by star troupers dress up yesterday on a mission to save the world from a superhero, colouring and junk modelling (more to come on that soon). What started as a wet cold not hopeful week keeping us in doors has now Finally changed for the better. What a difference it makes when the sun is shining! We have managed to get in to the garden today and enjoyed the blue sky playing tennis, badminton and football. We also managed to do some planting ready for the long awaited summer- My hopes of weeding pushed it a little bit to far, oh well- might as well play instead, ‘enjoy the small moments’!. Ever hopeful that the sun will remain shining – I have posted a few projects we have done in the past for the garden. In case you are looking for ideas over the break ( you know the drill – take a look in the project section, like, comment and share).

Enjoy!IMG_0353IMG_0355 emmasxxx
