Ready for a whole year of exploring through the senses? Welcome to Super Sensory Invitations to Play.
Are there signs of the change in season where you live? There is a definite nip in the air here this week and I am already craving apple crumble. I’m in the north and so expect lots of autumn ideas over the next few weeks. If you are in the south, you can find my archive of lovely spring ideas here.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen we spent a magical weekend at the Just So Festival last month. If you’ve never heard of it, want to see more photos, or find out what my girls think it’s like there – especially from an older kids’ point of view – you can see my review of the festival here. And if you’re tempted to go to next year’s event you might like to know that it will be happening on 19 – 21 August 2016 and they have Early Bird discounted tickets on sale now. Full details are in the review here.

We’ve been guests of the festival for a few years now, and my two consider themselves to be Just So experts. We’re often asked what the festival is like for older children, so here are our thoughts on why the Just So is just so good for tweens.
