Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Easter In Our House

Little Man is a bit too young to really appreciate Easter and what its all about. He’s been spotting – and eating – Lindt Gold Bunnies in shops for months but doesn’t really know why they are there, other than for Mummy to buy and him to eat! Last Easter we bought him a Happyland Pirate Ship and some gold doubloons – chocolate ones of course – as we knew his grandparents and aunties and uncles would no doubt supply copious amounts of chocolate, which they did. The same rule applies this year when he’s going to be getting some Peter Rabbit Figures, a Peter Rabbit Book and probably a few Lindt bunnies. There’s already a huge bucket of Haribo in the kitchen for him, and I suspect more chocolate will be coming as well.

We don’t do Easter cards but if we did I imagine we’d take a look at the Dom and Geri website, who specialise in personalised cards and also offer personalised wrapping paper and banners. They have a great range of Easter cards to choose from, from the cute to the more traditional so you’re bound to find something to suit all tastes. Most cards can be personalised with your own text and even with your own images.

As far as plans for the lovely long Easter weekend go we’ll no doubt be heading down to the local garden centre which has a brilliant steam train running for at least one ride, and to take part in their Easter egg hunt. And we might even make it to our favourite National Trust site Nymans to take part in their’s as well. On Monday we’ll be heading down to visit Nana and Pops as its also Pops’ birthday this weekend, making it the perfect excuse to spend time with family. Fingers crossed this gorgeous weather holds.

Whatever you’re doing this weekend I hope you have a great – and chocolate filled – Easter.
