Baby Sensory: Exploring Magical Worlds With Your Little One

Baby Sensory is a huge craze in the UK at the moment! It is built on the idea that:

A sensory environment rich in sights, sounds, smells, tastes and textures promotes brain growth, increases the capacity for intellectual development, and forms the foundation for all future learning. (Dr. Lin Day, founder of Baby Sensory)

Babies learn through play and through experience. The more new sensations your baby is exposed to, the faster they can make the connections in their brains needed to learn. Allowing them to explore freely promotes creativity and curiosity, which in turns results in stronger minds. At least, that’s the theory behind it!

Autumn Music With Your Toddler: September

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”
