Don’t you just love getting two of your favourite things in the whole wide world and combining them together? It’s like chocolate and orange or roasties and mustard or peanut butter and jam. Some things were just meant to belong together. This is one of those times. I am one huge Christmas fan and the second September (yes I’m that Christmas crazy) comes around I am all over the Christmas recipes trying out all the wonderful different combos out there. I think you’ll all agree that I struck gold with this one. I mean mincepie flavoured doughnuts!!! Why had I not thought of that before? They really are as delicious as they sound. (Do you hear the sound of tooting trumpets?) Apologies for the shameless patting oneself on the back but I am so proud of this recipe and I can not wait to hear what you guys think of it too! Let us know what fantastic Christmas mash-ups you guys have tried. Sprout ice cream or roast potato sandwiches maybe? Actually, I could totally eat a roast potato sandwich but that can just be our little secret right? See you soon friends. Help us out! If you have any […]
I absolutely love this time of year. The cooler days and the darker evenings make this the perfect time to snuggle up and get stuck into festive crafts and winter-themed activities. We have been turning our hand at all sorts of winter-themed fun from Christmas writing trays to paint dipped pine cones and I’m not sure who has had the most fun, myself or the kids?! During these frosty days, my two just love sitting down and having fun learning about the winter season. Each year we enjoy marking the occasion with worksheets and projects. A lovely way to celebrate the changing seasons and break up the year with familiar traditions. We have recently stumbled upon a fantastic learning resource that we wanted to share with you guys. This website is geared up to support teachers and home educators with ideas and resources. The lovely people at education.com have even offered us a free printable to share with you! This printable is a winter-inspired word scramble. Neither of the kids has ever tried one of these before so I wasn’t sure how they would take to it. I was aware that this may have been a bit of a challenge […]
There is nothing I love more than a beautiful bowl of comfort food at this time of year. There is just something about scooping from a steamy bowl and knowing your body is being nourished from the delicious goodness inside. Those of you who know me know that my favourite meal in the world is our lemon kale pasta broth but I have to tell you, my friends, that this dish has rivalled it. Boasting the same nutritional benefits and offering the ‘hug in a bowl’ effect I can now proudly say that I have two favourite dishes. On to the recipe… If you’re feeling run down, need a hug or simply fancy a quick easy supper then let this be your go-to. It will warm the cockles of your heart.
I am so excited to be sharing this with you guys today. Quite often we will get asked in our videos what games the kids are playing with and so we thought we would put together a list of our most loved and used resources. We have always been big advocates of learning through play and when we decided to officially unschool our children we started to collect together items that we felt would support their playtime and enhance their exploration and understanding of the world around them. Over time we have learnt which of these items have been great value for money and which ones are merely a fleeting passion. We have thought long and hard about this list and we feel very confident that these items are the ones that are used most in our household. They are the ones that have helped our children understand certain concepts the best and have been a great addition to their educational journey. Abacus. This colourful wooden abacus has been a staple in our home since as long as I can remember. It is a really useful tool to support simple sums up to 100. It visually makes the message of […]
