Kids Friendly Energy Balls – After School Snack

This is the After School Snack that I am most excited about for this week.  I am excited about energy balls for two reasons 1) because they are so delicious and nutritious and 2) because they are getting my kids to eat things they would gladly tell you they hate!  Victory is mine….  (I am […]

Homemade Fruit Roll Ups – After School Snack

My kids love a fruit roll up and we buy a lot of them.  The supermarket ones don’t have any nasties in them as far as I can tell except for preservatives, but they are rather expensive and there is quite a lot of packaging involved.  The main thing I can’t stand are the collectible […]

8 Reasons I love Toddlers

It has been a difficult week or so here with two unwell toddlers who are very very grumpy.  I have been struggling with managing two sets of tantrums and two littles needing me so very much.  Rather than sit in the corner having a tantrum with them I decided to put on my positive pants […]

St Patrick’s Day Craft Idea – Toddler Friendly

For this week’s crafts we are channeling my Irish half and going St Patrick’s Day themed.  This St Patrick’s Day craft idea does need a bit of pre preparation; cutting out the necessary shapes before hand, but once this is done it is very simple to do this with your toddler.  You could cut out […]
