    Travel Toys

    It is that time of year again when we will be embarking on the summer holidays from school. Whether its a flight, train or car journey we will be travelling for day trips and the need to entertainment is required! My two are not great travellers, we listen to podcasts and stories but having a few compact and interesting toys really help.

    Here are a few suggestions of toys that are great for taking out and about:

    Christmas Themes

    written by Laura

    One of my favourite things to do when giving gifts to my children is to put a few things together that fit under one theme. The Wooden Play Den makes this super easy for you by sorting toys into categories on the website and I’m going to showcase some of our favourite toys by theme here.

    Autumn Treasures

    by Laura

    Autumn is the season of nature’s bounty: so many natural treasures can be observed and collected at this time of year. It’s the perfect time of year to get out and about and discover the changing world around us. It can be really fun to get your little ones to join you on an adventure into nature this time of year, I often find they are super little spotters, always looking for something to fill their pockets. Conkers and acorns are a real favourite for my two to collect – we love using them to aid in learning too, counting and sorting are great activities to do.

    Winter Play

    written by Laura

    Winter can be such a magical time of year, frost, low sun shining through bare branches, cosy days warm inside. Hot Chocolates, games and the beginnings of the return of greenery and light. Equally, it can be super easy to get stuck in the dark, wet days lacking in inspiration – never ending rain, mud and dampness. There are some toys that I come back to every winter, and specific activities that I find I rely on to fill our days this time of year.
