Kids activities all week long with NurtureStore’s Play planner
If you’d like to have a copy of the weekly play planner delivered straight to your e-mail in box, just pop your e-mail address in the box below. The planner will arrive on a Sunday, ready and waiting with a week’s worth of play ideas for the week ahead.
This week’s Play Planner is sponsored by Jo Jingles, nationwide music, movement and singing classes for babies and pre-schoolers.
With nationwide sessions in more than 700 centres across the UK and Ireland and with over 90 franchisees, Jo Jingles offers well-established, structured classes that are fun, interactive and educational for little ones. Exposure to music and singing at a young age is highly beneficial to early years’ development, helping with speech development and coordination. Singing also builds and strengthens the bonds of trust and communication between adults and children and involving a young baby in musical sessions from an early age can help to encourage their self-expression and confidence in later life.
You can find them on their website, join them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
With less than two weeks until the holiday weekend the NurtureStore house is now full on baking, painting and generally bursting with Easter crafts! I’ve got a great idea today for an Easter creation station, which invites the children to glue, stick, paint, tear and create to their hearts content.
This lovely craft idea is brought to you in association with Hallmark. They are also full of the joys of spring and you can visit their site for a great range of greetings cards and gifts. They have lots of Easter fun, games and giveaways happening on their facebook page - so do hop on over to take a look and join in.

Over on NutureStore’s Facebook page we’ve been discussing the trickiest part of the day. There were lots of votes for organising the kids to get up, dressed and out of the door in the morning, and wrangling them into bed a night. According to a recent survey, one in four adults are stressed everyday, which over time can have a negative effect on your long-term health.
So, this month AXA PPP healthcare are focussing on taking steps to reduce every day and work related stress. They have lots of tips and advice in their Stress Centre which you can use, and they’re also running a competition to win a weekend away to the five-star Stobo Castle in Scotland – how’s that for some lovely chill-out me-time!
