Baby play – Egg carton & Nature

7th 08 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

 

Neive has LOVED all the time outside over the last few weeks (lets hope for more sun though) and has been very keen to touch all the plants and flowers. I made up a little nature egg box for her to discover the other day and it was a hit, the egg box just as much as the flower, stick and leaves.

She is in her 8th leap at the moment so she is really getting to grips with cause and effect and working out how things work and what she needs to do, and in what order to get the resutls she is looking for.

Summer Sand Bucket List

28th 07 2017. Posted in Family & Life by elliekelly

 

When I was a kid the 8 weeks I had off for summer seemed like an eternity. Now I can’t even seen to fit in a picnic before the summers out.

Not this year! I am making a list of all the family things I would like us to do, and of course that means it will all happen…. well if I do more than half I will be pleased.

 

  1. Lido – we have a few around us, Guildford and Aldershot so i need to get a few peeps together and get going.
  2. Fruit picking – I have only done this once for an anniversary date in 2013 with Mr Kelly and i would love to go with Neive as she is a BIG fan of strawberries and raspberries.
  3. The Zoo – Marwell would be our choice
  4. Aquarium – I have heard Sea Life in Brighton is good
  5. Festival – A one-day festival, I don’t have any of the weekends off that the big family festivals are on so we need to find a one day one that’s not too far.
  6. Farm – We might look for a new one but I think we will end up going back to Bocketts Farm for a day as we were impressed when we went for Neive party.
  7. Beach – we normally go to Mudeford or Avon so we need to plan this in for a day trip so Neive can feel the sand between her toes.
  8. A picnic in the park – this is a plan with friends every year and I don’t think we have manged it yet between work and the weather.

 

We went fruit picking before I even managed to publish this list! One done 🙂

  Being a parent is bloody hard work, I did know this before I became one but now I reallllly know it. So I am very mindful not to judge parents or any parenting. But, this I just can’t get my head around. I’m going to try not to have to big a rant. Siblings […]

Bocketts Farm – family day out

14th 07 2017. Posted in Family & Life by elliekelly

  As well as Neive’s party we did want to have a quite family day with her to celebrate, at the last minute we decided on Bocketts Farm in Leatherhead. We thought something with close up animal opportunities would be better than the Zoo at her age and none of us were quite up for […]

Eric Carle 1st Birthday

10th 07 2017. Posted in Buttons Parties, Family & Life by elliekelly

  That was the fastest year EVER!   I know it’s a cliché and everyone tells you how quickly they grow up but I really couldn’t comprehend just how fast time was going to go, or how fast Neive was going to grow up. She is walking around and it seems so normal that it’s […]

Baby sensory play with ice

19th 06 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

  This is the perfect baby sensory play on days as hot as these! It’s sooo hot!! I do love the sun and the heat but i would rather be on holiday when it’s this hot, by a pool with a cold drink. Running around after a baby and hosting kid’s parties in 30+ heat […]

Baby play with balloons

19th 06 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

  So simple and yet so much fun. With a garage full of balloon and helium Neive has been playing with a balloon for some time. When she was around 54 and a half months old I would tie a loop in the end of the string and put it around her foot. She loved […]

BFG Dream Jar

  We made 185 dream jars at the Fleet Food Festival at the end of May. They were such a hit we ran out before the end of the day! So many people around the festival who has seen the kids with them came to ask how they were created, so i thought I would […]

How to make Pass the Parcel

12th 06 2017. Posted in Parties by elliekelly

  When i started in children’s parties over 10 years ago I think it would be fair to say I was not a fan of pass the parcel. So I changed the way we played it to ensure the we didnt have any tears and now  I love watching children play this game. This is […]

Baby box sensory play

6th 06 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

  The classic baby in a box game. I must say Neive wasn’t as keen to go inside the box as i thought she would be. We haven’t done lots of play with tunnels yet though so i think she was a bit unsure. I cut some holes in the top of the box and […]
