As a mum of two boys, I know how difficult it can sometimes be to entertain little ones - especially during the strange times in which we find ourselves in 2021 - so I've created a couple of activities to share with you!
HOW TO - Make little ice boats and race them with your toddler
If you've read the story of Little Fluff, this activity lets you act out the beginning of his journey, which is when he sailed on an ice boat from the North Pole to the beach.
You can make multiple Little Fluffs and race them across if you want. That's what my son and I have done. Hope you enjoy it!
HOW TO - Make a Flying Witch on a Broomstick
In this video I show you how to make a flying with on a broomstick your toddler. The witch is one of the main characters in my book, Wand, the second book in the Explaining the Unexplainable series.
For this activity, you will need:
- Witch Printable
- Paper Straw
- Sellotape/Scotch Tape
Flying Witch Printable
HOW TO - Make a Witch's Garden
For those of you who have read my book Wand, you may be wondering where the witch got the peas, carrots and taters from to cook with her meal. Well, I'll tell you, she had a garden! And I am going to show you how to make a witch's garden.

As they usually do, changes bring up feelings for children. Happy to see friends, possibly a little overwhelmed, confusion on why we can only see people outdoors during the pandemic, anxiousness?
I wanted to be able to talk about these feelings with my boys. I want to help them recognise the emotions they feel.
So I made a simple emotions chart to help them identify what they are feeling.
Most of the ones I found online were a bit above my kids level of understanding or you had to pay or subscribe to download.
I have put this one for free, with no obligation to subscribe, for you guys to download if you think it might be helpful for your little ones.
Simply right-click on the pictures below to save them to your computer. Enjoy colouring them!
