New? Start here

Welcome to The ladybirds’ adventures. I’m Claire and I love sharing inspiration for having seasonal fun with young children.

I love reading and discovering new blogs. When I find a new blog it’s nice to get to know who writes it and what it is about. So I thought I’d make it easy for you to get to know us and also give you an overview of the types of posts you will find here as well as answer a few questions you may have.

1. Who are we?

I’m Claire, a married mummy of two little girls, living in Cheshire. F was born in April 2013 and E was born in June 2016.

If you want to find out more try my about us page or by reading the posts in “my family” category.

2 – What is the ladybirds’ adventures about?

This blog is where I document our family adventures, big and small. I also share lots of ideas for other parents to find inspiration for having seasonal fun with young children. We love spending time outdoors, messy play, art and crafts, children’s books and learning through play. I know that not everyone has time to search Pinterest for ideas of fun things to do with their children so I’ll do all the searching for you so you can spend more time having fun with your children.

We also love exploring the UK sharing our adventures and recommending great days out and holidays for young families. I love cooking and baking too so you’ll find a few recipes for easy family food along the way too.

3. Where else can you find me?

I love Instagram, so much so that I have set up my own hashtag #mycolourfulkids. You can also find me sharing lots of ideas for seasonal play, crafts, books, days out and family food on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter as well. If you want to have more seasonal fun with your children then I’ll do the hard work finding the ideas for you.

4. Do I work with brands?

Yes, I do accept reviews and sponsored posts if I think my readers will be interested in them. I am always honest in my reviews, find out more on my disclosure page.

If you are a brand or PR company and you have a product, event or other opportunity that you believe would be a good fit for my family and readers please see my work with me page or email me at

5. How can you interact with me?
