Back in 2011 I sat with my 2 kids, then 3 months and 21 months old looking for ideas to do with them on the Internet I discovered a few ideas that were “Toddler Ideas” but as I sat there I discovered that nothing that we did looked anything like the crafts had or the activities despite being toddler were aimed at much older children. I then started to explore what I could do and decided to start Rainy Day Mum and share those ideas.
It’s now 4 and a half years later and our family has evolved and so has our site. What we can do with the kids has changed as well – no longer are activities simple instead we focus on family activities. How, together as a family we can grow and learn. Whether it’s through travel, recipes, activities, crafts, book based learning I aim to share what matters to you.
About Me – Cerys
I am Cerys – a marine biologist, environmental educator, computer science teacher, mum, crafter, writer, cook and gardener. I am one of those people that never stop I can’t just sit and do nothing I have to be doing something which leads to lots of activities to support the kids learning at school, get creative as a family, DIY projects, recipes that I experiment with the in the kitchen and travel so that the kids can learn about the world around them and different places.
Meet the family
J was born August 2009 and is my little monkey, he loves all things nature and wants to be a Jungle Explorer when he grows up. A book worm he’s fascinated by Non-fiction books although loves sitting down together and reading a story book together. He started school in September 2013.
The other little monkey is T born in March 2011 she’s been at home with me since then and will be going to preschool for the first time in September 2014 and starting school the following year. What she wants to be when she grows up changes every day but varies from a Racing Car drive, to post man, to a mermaid depending on her mood. She loves nothing more than digging in the dirt and making flower cakes in the garden.
