Living Arrows | Rain Does Not Stop Play

What The Redhead Said Living Arrows UK Parenting Blog Link Up Khalil Gibran Quote

'You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth' Khalil Gibran.  

It's been 3 months since my last Living Arrows post and I can't quite believe the difference in Iris. She seems to have grown so much both physically and mentally. She's no longer a baby and is now a fully fledged toddler. She's learning to speak with such ease and clarity it really does amaze me. My favourite words this week have been dinosaur and mammoth. Like most people the weather has kept us indoors this last week so we've been doing a lot of indoor play and I've discovered some amazing play accounts on Instagram

My absolute favourite Instagram play resource is Childcare Adventures as Hannah shares snippets of her amazing childcare set ups, some great activities and each week she rounds up some upcoming prompts from lots of fun play accounts. Play prompts are great for when you're stuck indoors but they can be so easily adapted for outdoor play as well. Both myself and Iris have benefited from discovering play prompts, I enjoyed the challenge of creating a farm from things we had and Iris thoroughly enjoyed playing with the animals, letting them drink from the pond, graze on the grass and go to sleep in their pens. It was such a fun way to enjoy our time stuck indoors. Though we are still very much ready for some sunshine!

  1. I always remember thinking how long each day seemed when the children were babies but a month or two flew by and they grew so much in that time. She sounds like a wonderful character x


Thank you for supporting me on my journey to raise awareness about mothers on the autistic spectrum. We do exist, we just need people to know we do!
