I as the parent really enjoyed this activity as it was very minimal set up. The idea behind this was to use Marlowe’s final masterpiece to make a Valentines Day card for daddy.
You don’t have to make a card though, you can just make a really cool heart print to hang on the wall.
We are massive dinosaur fans in this house so after the release of Camp Cretaceous 2, we just had to make our own dinosaur eggs.
It’s a really simple and non messy craft, just needs some assembling by an adult.

This is by no means a permanent measure right now. The government have announced lots of plans to help small businesses come out the other side and that is exactly what I intend on doing.Continue reading Temporary Closure

As many of you know, I’m a Mumma to four as well as a business owner. I know many of you are in a similar situation, that is, having kids and running some kind of business, whether that be full time or a side hustle.
I have struggled for so long to try and stay organised, especially with my online presence as it’s just too time-consuming and I get swallowed in the mound of growing posts and the pressure to create original content.
