August's Bostik Blogger craft box has a back to school theme and we were sent lots of fab craft materials to come up with a simple craft tutorial. Little N is only starting nursery school next month so while it's not proper school it's still a big deal! He will wear a proper little school uniform like the children attending the infant school and most days the nursery children get to play with reception children. For our back to school craft we made a colourful alphabet pencil pot. If you want to see last month's sports themed craft idea you can find it here.

A few months ago I had never even heard of trampoline parks, but now they seem to be everywhere! There are a few that have opened quite locally to us, but my boys are too young to go to them. Gravity Force, who earlier this month opened a new trampoline park in St Albans, Hertfordshire, invited us along to their launch day. They hold special Gravity Tots sessions for little ones from walking age to five. And unlike a lot of places, they don't just get a small sectioned off area of the place. Oh no. During Gravity Tots sessions toddlers and their accompanying adults get the run of the whole venue, including all the trampolines, the dodgeball areas, the slam dunk hoops and the foam pit!

I often see memes and funny posts on Facebook about how mums always dress in stripey tops, skinny jeans and Converse, but truth be told this has always been my favourite look, for years before I even became a mama! I'm drawn to striped clothes like a magpie is drawn to shiny things and at least half of the boys' wardrobes are full of stripes too. To keep our love affair with stripes going right into autumn, Petit Bateau sent the boys and I some of their gorgeous breton tops.

The weather these past few weeks has been utterly glorious and we have been spending as much time as possible exploring the beautiful scenery surrounding where we live, and even when we haven't got anywhere to go, I've been encouraging the boys to play outside in the garden. Only when they're older will they appreciate that we have to make the most of the short British summer! dotcomgiftshop.com sent us some of their classic outdoor games to help make the garden a bit more fun - and wow, have we been having a lot of fun with them!
