As hard as I try sometimes I fall into the trap of repeating the same activities with the children again and again. I want my children to have an incredible childhood its something I'm extremely passionate about. I came across these lovely personalised cards from Loved By Olivia . The cards come with 25 random activities on that you can do with your children and a space on each card where you can mark the date you carried it out. 

Noah understood the concept of the cards a lot more than Eva so we made a game out of choosing an activity from the pack. I held the cards up like you would for a magic trick and asked Noah to pick a random card for us to do. I started to mark the backs of the ones we've already completed so he didn't re pick them.
We've started to do them every weekend as a little something for Noah to get excited about and also a wonderful way for us to really interact with them on an activity we know they're going to enjoy. We made a big agreement that there would be no distractions when we were carrying out the activity so they would always be remembered as special moments for both us and the children.
