Outdoor Cooking with your Little One's 

As the temperatures are set to reach 21/22 degrees this is perfect weather for a BBQ or some form of outdoor cooking. Why not bring some fun into cooking and get your little one involved? 

First lets take a look at why children of all ages can (and should) learn outdoor cooking

  1. It is extremely fun and builds relationships. There is nothing better than getting everybody involved in chopping, mixing and stirring. Cooking is a fun bonding activity. 
  2. It increases self-sufficiency - when you earn how to cook, you will never starve. Teaching your child to cook a variety of things will give them a head start in life. They will learn how to be safe, whether a food is cooked properly and ultimately set them up for life.
  3. You will encourage a sense of responsibility - When you assign a meal to a young chef in the making, your installing incredible responsibility to them. Whether a small or big meal, you are ultimately sending a positive message to your child about your belief in their abilities. 
  4. It also fosters creativity as it lets their imagination run wild in thinking of recipes 
  5. It is also an excellent education builder that involves learning core subjects vital in life such as Maths, Science and Comprehension. Reading and learning recipes is comprehension, making sense of measurements is all about maths and the process of cooking is the best way to learn about science. 

If the prospect of mess or staining of clothes is worrying you we have the perfect solution with our personalised aprons. An apron, a simple piece of cloth that makes a difference. People have always taken it for granted, yet this is an effective safety device during cooking. Shop our personalised apron collection here:

A Trip to Lytham St Anne's Beach 

It seems that according to social media, that Bank Holidays are made for heading to the beach and as it is meant to be glorious sunshine this weekend we think it is a brilliant idea and a great day out for the family. One of our favourite beaches to go to is Lytham St Annes as there is so much going for all the family to enjoy. 

Between the promenade and the road are the beautiful dunes which provide a pleasant walk and retreat from the traffic. There are plenty of desire lines to follow which lead you to the beach. A stunning little walk to be enjoyed with the family. 

The miniature railway has been popular with young and old for many years. It’s a magnet for little ones begging mummy and daddy to take them for a ride on the train and taking in the beautiful sights. 

Nearby is the paddling pool which is very popular in summer, and next to it an attractive bandstand. Your little one can splash about and have some fun in the water. 

Located at Lytham St Annes Beach is a boating lake where you can have all kinds of safe fun, messing about in the water. You can ride in little boats, feed the ducks and mess about on floats. For all you golf lovers there is a range of golfing facilities to suit a range of ages. You will also find a range of shops, restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlours to satisfy your little ones hungry tummy's.
