Top 5 Posts of 2019

It’s always fun to see content my readers enjoy the most. Obviously, posts from earlier in the year always have a higher hit rate, since they are around for more of the year, but it still gives a good indication of what REALLY caught your eye. So here they are, the most read posts of 2019:

1. Recycled Cardboard Box Rocket Ship

Perfect for using up old boxes and keeping kids busy on a rainy day.

2. 5 Last Minute World Book Day Costumes

It will be World Book Day again before you know it!

3. Easy-Peasy Origami Cat Tutorial

Word of warning – these are so easy to make, your kids will be churning them out by the dozen!

4. Gift Guide for Kids Starting School

Some lovely gift ideas here that will come in handy again – great for ‘back to school’ gift ideas for older kids too.

5. How to Make a Shark Themed ‘Schultüte’

In Germany, kids get a large cardboard cone filled with treats when they start school. My youngest requested a shark themed one for his. Check out the tutorial if you’d like to adopt this great German tradition.

    Love the cardboard box rocket ship – how cool is that! The last minute World Book day costumes will definitely come in handy this March.

    Oh I love these so much! Especially the box rocket ship. I have just made play doh for my kids to play with after tea, and they are happily moulding it whilst I read blogs!

    My husband hates me doing crafts and activities in the house with the kids (because we usually make lots of mess!!), but it brings out my inner child and my kids love it, so he can get stuffed :D

    I have always found these types of posts interesting for regular readers to catch posts they may have missed or you can read certain posts again. The world boom day costumes will come in handy for sure, we are always stuck for last minute ideas.

    We loved the book day last minute ideals as we found it to be so useful.
