Leaf Art

Sound the season change klaxon! I reckon we’re approaching optimal time to make autumnal art. Red and orange leaves are littering our parks, and sunny days mean they haven’t yet turned to mush. They’re perfect for little hands to make into stunning art. I love the work of Mehdi Mo’eeni, an Iranian illustrator who creates […]

Great Halloween Costumes for Twins

Dealing with the day-to-day grind of baby twins is pretty full on. More than pretty full-on, actually. But one of the huge perks is that you get to dress them up in hilarious matching outfits. I don’t need the excuse of Halloween to put them into skeleton babygros or pumpkin hats; that’s the kind of […]

And form a band with your mates! We adore this tin can xylophone – team it with a couple of home-made maracas and a kazoo, and […]
