Seasonal fun does not have to come from a store. In fact it can be found in my kitchen!
I am a big believer in an a unplugged childhood and children being creative and having fun away form screens. #unplugged childhood is absolutely my most favourite Instagram hashtag too, do take a look you can get some fabulously inspiring ideas.
Another place to find great play ideas is on Pinterest particularly at this time of year. Creative ideas for Halloween abound and I have loved seeing decorated carved peppers, spooky spider soup, mummies wrapped up in toilet paper and some lovely Halloween home-made outfits.
It’s all great fun and wonderful for a child’s imagination and creativity
As a nation I think Halloween has been embraced as time to be creative and I love that so much of it is homemade/handmade fun rather than shop bought.
Long may this continue and thrifty fun and resourcefulness be a big part of our children’s playtime
Over at DFS their is a brilliant guide to creating a sofa den It really is the recipe for the very best sofa den ever in the history of sofa dens and your child just needs your sofa, a bit of time and their imagination. Now that’s family budgeting in action right there!
This would be a really fun thing to do over Halloween. Why not just print of the guide and set your kids to work .
My kids took this perfectly ordinary table added sofa cushion and made a spooctacular den
My kids wanted to create a Halloween den under the table so they used the sofa den guide to make the most excellently spooky entrance
