Colouring in for adults - discover your inner child

Last week I bought some colouring-in books, but not for the kids - for me and a close, school-mum friend of mine for her birthday. When I gave her the gift, the other mums also wanted one. My friend has told me that even before putting pencil to paper, she and her daughter spent ages (and quality time) gazing through the beautiful, intricately detailed pages, deciding which to colour first.

Have you ever found yourself joining in with your child as they colour in their stencils or activity books? When you go to child-friendly cafes and restaurants, do you find yourself covering every square inch of the butcher’s paper with crayon doodles?

Parties - Theme ideas

Your child's party is coming up and you've either decided to have a party at home, go to a park or you've booked a venue. Not only has your original panic attack subsided but you're in the grips of enthusiasm as you're preparing the party plan and scanning Pinterest boards. 

While a dedicated party venue will have everything required and just needs your credit card details, you've decided that for your child's up-coming party there will be a theme and you'll plan everything around it.
