The blog

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Nicola and I'm a stay-at-home mum to two little boys: "Wugs" (3.5) and "Dooey" (2).  We are a multi-cultural family.  My husband is Malaysian and I am British. We have recently moved to the UK from Singapore where we lived for four years and where my children were born.

The inspiration for the activities on this blog primarily come from the interests and needs of my eldest son, Wugs. When Wugs was younger we noticed he was repulsed by certain textures (jelly, paint - anything that stuck to his hand and made it "dirty").  I searched for ideas on how to help him explore his world confidently. I came across websites promoting sensory play and adapted them to Wugs' interests at the time.  The activities have since evolved to include different playful learning experiences with a recent focus on the Montessori style of learning, using hands-on activities to demonstrate spiritual truths and to include the interests of his younger brother, Dooey.

I hope you enjoy reading and feel inspired!

(Very Important: Almost all the activities on this blog have required adult supervision, especially where I have used items that could potentially be a choking hazard or poisonous to a child.  Please take the necessary precautions if you are following any of these activities).
