With summer holidays hitting their peak, and the weather not always remembering that, we’re all looking for fun ways to keep the little ones busy.
So here are our favourite blogs that are filled to the brim with creative ideas to keep the kids happy all summer -whether the sun shines or not!
From DIY guides on edible play dough to pretty tea cups made of toilet rolls, the gorgeous ideas on Handmade Charlotte are pretty as a picture and so fun to do. Don’t miss out on the fabulous recipes on the site too – there are plenty of fun choices for children to help you with as well as ones for you to cook up for them.
