Hello September!

10 ideas of fabulous things to make, do and celebrate in September with your children!


Here is my monthly post, which I post at the beginning of every month. I am looking ahead at the month and suggesting 10 things you could do with your children. These things will focus on celebrating the season and special events in that month.

Here goes:

  1. Plant bulbs… that time again to get planting ready for the spring! Last year we planted bulbs in individual pots ready to give as gifts. 2016-02-22 16.52.15
  2. Pick apples – it is great for children to have a real experience of where our food comes from, find somewhere local to pick your own, then get cooking with them…. apple pie…….apple crumble. Could even try some apple bobbing!
  3. Spot signs of early Autumn – as you are out and about can you see any early signs that autumn is on it’s way?
  4. Cook a meal together When I cook with Tom it tends to be snacks rather than a main course. Recently we cook a savoury tart together for dinner, he was super chuffed to cooking something that the whole family were going to enjoy. IMG_20160817_183534.jpg
  5. Visit somewhere newNational trust free visit during 8-11th Sept or  Open house London visit amazing buildings in London.
  6. Harvest time….. is a great time to talk about how blessed we are to have so much food and how some have very little or even none. Involve your child in getting together some food and taking it to a local food bank or charity.
  7. A September festival– Find out about local festivals, here are a couple that are local to us: Totally Thames festival and Royal Greenwich tall ships festival.
  8. Food glorious food……… so simple printing with fruit and vegetables.
  9. Have a late picnic Make the most of light evenings and have a late picnic in the park or even have fish and chips on the beach!
  10. Try a new fruit or vegetable Let your child choose a different fruit or vegetable at the supermarket or greengrocers amd see if they enjoy it!!??!

Here are some suggestion of some fab picture books for September:

Goodbye Summer, hello Autumn by Kenard Pak – This book looks fab, I haven’t actually read as it release later in September. 51JGoJa3bXL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_

Let’s plan ahead:

Sorry going to have to mention it but if you are hoping to go to see a Father Christmas at a popular place then most bookings start in September, so keep at watch out!

My favourite posts from August:
