We've spent the last few weeks planting vegetable & flower seeds for our garden hoping they'll produce a crop this Summer as good as last year. For the last few years, we've tried to recycle as much as we can in the garden & when growing seeds we try to always use these homemade pots. Not only are they simple to make & of course easy to source, but they're biodegradable too!
We all know the well-known fairy tale "Jack & The Beanstalk" but have you ever grown a beanstalk that Jack could climb? This fun gardening activity not only encourages kids to care for plants & observe them as they grow but also invites them to explore a classic story, & explore some maths skills too.
This International Women's Day I'm particularly thinking of all the amazing women in my life & their beautiful qualities. I hope as my daughter grows up she'll be able to recognize similar characteristics in others & also see them in herself. Today I want to encourage her to think about all she has to offer the world, & to ask "What makes a Strong Girl?"
This gluten & dairy free pancake recipe is a real winner in our house, it's super quick & simple, & the pancakes taste delicious! Perfect to get all the family involved in making pancakes for Shrove Tuesday, or any other day.
Did you see our Magnetic Hearts made from lolly sticks? Well, we couldn't resist making more. This time though we turned them into funky badges. This is a great craft for tweenagers to encourage creativity & self-expression, & would be perfect for any Brownie or Guide Group activity.
