Weeds... messy and unloved, overlooked and a little lost.

But there is beauty there when you look at it from the right angle.

That's pretty much how my blog is at the moment.

 Sometimes life gets busy and I've just not had the time to come over here, but I do miss this little corner of the internet.

So a catch up....

My eldest turns 15 soon.... fifteen.

My youngest will be two just before that, and with a 13 year old and a 9 year old in between life is certainly busy.

In the past two years life has been somewhat hectic, I got a job for Netmums which I loved, then I had Noah, and now I'm working as a dinner lady for a local secondary school but also working hard on my freelance graphics designs.

But also being a mum to four I am lucky if I get time to breath let alone do much of anything else!

Noah is a amazingly fun but he is exhausting in equal measures. He still breastfeeds and co sleeps, although he sleeps fine I only really get a hazy nights sleep, I do love having him close and I know these years pass faster than you can imagine but still sleepless nights are hardwork!

So that's where we are... muddling through this roller coaster of life, rocking with the twists and turns and hoping the thrills outway the fear.

Autumn Eye Spy - Free Childrens Activity Print

Here is a great Time filler for everyone - one of my favorite childrens activity for those rainy afternoons, or in fact any time you want to incorporate something fun and seasonal into your day.

This print out sheet I have created is great for learning all about the autumn animals and vegetables you can see around this time of year, it is great free resource to have to help children learn the names of some of the common creatures and vegetables -

Can they spot a Robin? Where are the pumpkins? How many ants can you see? What colour is the apple?  Can you see the turnip? What do you think the hedgehog would like to eat?

There are so many ways you can use this fun print out sheet. A simple eye spy - where you say the name of the vegetable or animal and the child has to point it out, or you can use the more common eye spy method where you and the child use the sheet to help think of things 'eye spy something beginning with L.....' (leek)

You can also use this fun sheet to provock discussions, simply talk through what you can see.

However you decided to use this sheet I do hope you have as much fun with it as we have!

To print this sheet out simply right click and save the image to your computer then print as many times as you require!

Free Printable Autumn Treasure Hunt

I can't quite believe how quickly this year is passing, October is creeping up quicker and quicker, and with it the changing seasons, I must admit I love Autumn, the colours, the changes in nature, the weather. Even when its getting a little cooler it is still nice enough to grab a jumper and get out side!

We are very much an out doors family,  spending a lot of our time outside I am always thinking up things to entertain the children, one of their favorite things is to go on a treasure hunt, they never seem to tire of finding bugs and beasties or blowing a dandelion clock.

I have created this free to print out - Autumn treasure hunt, which is one of our favorites, the children love to see who can find all the things first, or we simply use it as a guide when we are walking, helping us point out some of the things we see at this time of year.

If you would like to print this Treasure hunt simply right click and save the image below to your computer and print out as many times as you require!

It's a great way to help the children learn about nature and the changing seasons, the printable guide gives them something to look at to encourage them to get outside.A great free activity for everyone at home, after school or any time!

Happy Autumn Hunting!
