Ten Fabulous Free Meal Planning Printables

Once a week we sit down as a family and talk about what we loved about that week’s menu and what we want the following week.  It has started to become a real family affair as both the boys are now preparing and cooking at least one meal a week.  I am a sucker when it comes to stationery, so I have gathered together some fabulous free meal planning printables to share with you.

Encouraging kids to garden

We have been lucky enough to have a small garden for the last eight years and we love to make the most of it, but growing our own vegetables and using it as a wonderful place to eat and play.

Sportpax review and giveaway

Both of my boys are sports mad, especially football.  I am lucky that it takes no encouragement on my part to get them outside in t he fresh air playing and with the lighter nights they are outside playing football or cricket with their friends until they are called in.

They both either scoot or walk to and from school and if they are taking the scooter then they really need a backpack for their school things (books, pencil case, PE kit etc) and this is where these fab Sportpax come in.  Sportpax are backpacks with iconic, fun designs in the shape of sports balls. Sportpax bags are tough, resilient and spacious – perfect for cramming in bits for school.

Oreo dirt desserts or chocolate mint puddings

This shop and recipe for Oreo dirt desserts or chocolate mint puddings has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias

We have been busy planting in the garden and to celebrate this I decided to make some Oreo dirt desserts or chocolate mint puddings.  We have made dirt desserts with jelly worms in the past (I was first introduced to them in California) and this time I want to make them a little more adult.
