Lambs, spring and Easter fun #littleloves

Lambs, spring and Easter fun #littleloves

What a gorgeous, warm and sunny weekend we had. The rest of the week has been cooler and more unsettled though. We had a busy weekend making the most of the weather and a quieter week getting ready for Easter.


I shared a blog post on Wednesday – 20 children’s books to read this spring. These are most of the books that we have been reading this week.

Children's Books To Read This Spring


On Sunday we went to a local farm and myself and F saw a sheep give birth to twin lambs. I also watched as F cuddled a lamb and then had a cuddle myself. You can read more in Lambing at Blaze farm.

Food made Easter cards for her grandparents on Wednesday. She loves stickers so I couldn’t resist these Easter themed foam ones. She had lots of fun while I prepared dinner and her grandparents will love the cards.


Sun hats and sun cream was needed here on Sunday. I also dressed my girls in matching outfits on Saturday. I can’t make my mind up if it is cute or not. F enjoys it though.


I heard on twitter this week that not one but two of my Easter activity blog posts had been included in a blog post on 10 traditions to start this Easter. I’m so flattered that someone thought they are good enough to include in a post like this.

One of the posts, Easter sensory bag is from 3 years ago but I had improved it and pinned it on Pinterest a few weeks back. I’m so glad I made the effort. The other post was from a few weeks back, Easter play dough.

Some of you may remember that I only went self-hosted a couple of months back and part of the reason was to try and improve my blog as I was not happy with it. Not many people know I blog and I had decided to either stop or make it into something I am proud of. This makes me think I am moving in the right direction.

And lastly ….

I hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend. Our’s is very busy so I’ll probably be playing catch up with commenting on Tuesday.

    Aww wow how magical being able to see twin lambs being born! I love the matching outfits – I’m currently expecting our second daughter and I may have already picked up a few twinning outfits 🙂 #LittleLoves

    Aw I love the matching outfits, they look very cute – especially the dungarees. You can really see that you’ve made an effort with your blog lately, it’s looking fab. I would agree that it’s hard letting people you know that you blog – not many people know that I do either. I think it’s this age old ‘vulnerability’ thing – I just feel so self-conscious and side open to judgement. It’s a weird one. Glad you enjoyed the sunshine this week 🙂 x

    This is such a lovely Spring post to read full of seasonal sparkles. Sensory play rocks, I work with ASD students so we incorporate sensory play into a lot of our work and have found it really helpful with my own children too. It can be simple yet so much fun. Happy Easter.
