Peel Procedures to Improve You Skin


You might think having an at-home skincare routine is the key to maintaining permanently healthy skin. However, that is not necessarily true. Caring for your skin on your own is always important no matter what, but sometimes you need a little extra help to get your healthy glow back. A clinical peel procedure could provide exactly the boost you need to improve your skin. However, there are lots of different peels to pick from. Before signing up for any of them, you need to understand the benefits peels provide and what to expect from them.

Using Animals In Education At Home


The early years learning stage is an important time in a child's development, and at the moment, most children are missing out on what they would usually learn at school and nursery as they're isolating at home. But this stage is a great time to introduce topics about animals, and use them as a way to educate children in a lot of aspects of education. 

Games for Educational Purposes
You could play the mini game 'Can you guess the pixelated animal? to help keep little entertained, and teach them about endangered animals. With many parents now trying to come up with ways to keep the kids entertained, this is a great way to keep children's brains active, their eyesight interacting with their brains, and keeping them learning whilst they're not at school with the facts they also give. 

Counting Animals
Maths in early years can be hard to get right, but using animals as a way to get children counting, and adding and subtracting, is an ideal way to utilise them. Counting how many of the same animal are on a sheet, adding them together, and taking them away. I think using a subject as numbers can make it more interactive and want children to join in more. 


The Correct Usage Of Colour
Twinkl have a whole range of animal early years resources and can really benefit children. Colouring sheets are a great way to get children to practise colouring in the lines, looking up animals and making sure they're using the right colours, and even going for and abstract and changing up the colours to create their own design. 

In Stories
Books are a great way to get children's imaginations going, and there are plenty out there that have animals as their main characters. Let your child look for a book that is about their favourite animal, and then they can practise reading it, sounding out the trickier words, and learning new words too. 

Drawing Animals
You can ask your children to look at their favourite animals and think about what shapes makes up their outline - triangles for cat ears, an oval for their face etc. And then get them drawing up their chosen animal using only shapes, to see how they can improvise with shapes to create their animal.

Pecorino Chicken Goujons with Pasta


With everything that is happening at the moment, I seem to have found my love for cooking again. I've been trying new meals every day that we've been stuck at home, and my pecorino chicken goujons are a firm favourite with adults and children alike. 

I adore Italian food and so always opt for making recipes based around Italian flavours, and one of my absolute loves is pecorino cheese. This sharp and salty flavour is ideal for grating over pasta dishes, and can be combined into any recipe to give a salty edge.

Finding The Right Childcare Is Easier Than Ever


Having children is hard work, and finding the right childcare for them can be even harder, especially when you don't know what to look out for. I mean, there are so many options, and ones that work for others might not work for you. 

I guess I am lucky in this instance as I currently work from home, although parenting and working at the same time is a task and half. But I've being looking at job prospects out of the home, and have recently been offered an office based role for an amazing company, and I've been weighing up the pros and cons of this, as well as working out how we'd manage childcare.

4 Ways To Monetise Your Blog


When you're just starting out with your blog, it can seem like one of the most hard and frustrating tasks, to try and work out how to monetise. With so much information to digest right at the start, I can understand why so many people give it up before they've even given it a chance. 

And I get it, people want their words to be seen and shared, and they want to be an 'influencer'. They want to gain the respect of the people and boost their authority in their niche. However, blogging really isn't quite as simple as it seems. Not only is it difficult to drive traffic to a blog, but it's also hard to monetise the traffic that you do receive. 

The problem I've found the most, when it comes to new and upcoming bloggers is that most people ignore the basics of online marketing and then find it excruciatingly difficult to earn anything. But if you go about it the right way, you'll certainly profit in the long run. 

So, here are my 4 ways to monetise your blog...
