Hello, welcome! I am so glad you are here. This is the new, improved, grown up Creative Playhouse, and I am so excited to be back!
If you have followed us for a while, you will know that I started blogging in 2011, 6 years ago, here, on the original Creative Playhouse. I loved sharing the play activities Jake and I were doing at home when he was a toddler, and I loved being part of a great supportive community of other bloggers and parents who were passionate about creating play and learning opportunities for young children.
After my second child, Poppy, was born, I found it hard to keep up with blogging our activities, but managed for a little while, but with the breakdown of my relationship, and a relocation from Jersey to the UK, I couldn’t keep everything going and sadly, Creative Playhouse lay dormant for a long time.
Now, Im back! Jake is 7, and Poppy is 5!! We are happily settled in England, and I am excited to be blogging again, and so to celebrate that, I decided to start afresh, here!
The old site will remain, and you can find all your old favourites there, like Bubble Dough, and 15 Play Ideas to Help Children Relax, and lots more… and you can now look forward to even more fun here! We will be sharing all sorts of simple creative play activities, including:
- Art activities, ideas and inspiration for children
- Homemade toys
- Sensory play
- Creative play recipes
- Play dough recipes, ideas and activities
- Lego ideas and creations
- Nature play
- Outdoor play and adventures
- Children’s book recommendations
- Science and discovery play for young children
- Pretend and imaginary play ideasand probably a little bit more…
I am so excited to be sharing our ideas and activities again, and I can’t wait to read your comments and see what you think! I would love for you to join us over on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram too. If you are a blogger and want to collaborative I would love to hear from you too – on social media, as mentioned, or email me.
On Instagram you will get a look at our day to day life, meet the rest of our family and animals, and see what fun Jake and Poppy get up to when they’re at home. Id love to see what you are up to too – follow and tag me @Creativeplayhouse! You can also find me over one Twitter, and Stumble Upon too!
