How To Throw A Dinosaur Themed Party: J’s First Birthday

As many of you will know, J turned 1 last week! We spent a long time deciding how to celebrate his birthday, and settled on 2 family parties. We live in Solihull, but my family live in London, and Luke’s family live in Stockton. Therefore, we decided to host a party at each of our parent’s homes, so that we could invite lots of family and family friends without the need for them to travel. As J is too young to tell us what sort of party he would like, we chose a theme ourselves – dinosaurs! Here’s how to throw your own dinosaur themed party:  Continue reading “How To Throw A Dinosaur Themed Party: J’s First Birthday”

Lullabies at Bedtime

As bad as it sounds, J’s bedtime is one of my favourite times of the day!! Not because I’m desperate for him to go to sleep (although, after his colicky witching hour between 5 and 6pm, it’s quite a relief), but because of our lovely bedtime routine.

August 2017: Music Events for Children

music events

Watching live music is a magical experience for young children. It is mesmerising to see musicians playing, singers singing, and dancers dancing. Live performance is inspiring and exciting, teaching children about different ways to move and learn. Furthermore, it can be used to encourage all forms of interaction, and spark your child’s imagination in ways you didn’t know were possible. Many orchestras, theatres, and town halls have music events for children. These are more relaxed performances, which allow children the chance to join in. Here are some of the most interesting music events for children in July 2017 – book your tickets now! Continue reading “August 2017: Music Events for Children”
