Ideas for Little People is taking a bit of a break. The ideas remain here as an archive.

The internet is packed with brilliant ideas for activities to do with the kids, plus a large number of terrifyingly complicated and entirely impractical ones.
As a frazzled parent of young children, I know what a struggle it is to find enough time to sleep. Let alone find time to trawl through hundreds of parenting blogs, podcasts and videos for inspiration.

Ideas for Little People aims to make life for frazzled parents just a little bit easier. It sends subscribers a free weekly email with brilliant and simple activities for kids, hand-picked from the best of the web. See sample weekly emails.


  • are aimed at 2-6 year olds.
  • come with short descriptions and material lists.
  • have suggested ages, often with adaptations for younger or older children.

To receive brilliant and simple activities for kids each week, subscribe for free, to Ideas for Little People.

Ideas for Little People is free of charge to all users and subscribers. The site keeps me inspired and engaged. But also has to help pay my mortgage, clothe my kids, and eat, and stuff. So I use affiliate links, write product reviews and welcome advertising and sponsorship where it is appropriate to the content of Ideas for Little People. I accept freebies too (we all love a freebie). Nevertheless, my reviews are honest, whether good or bad, and my recommendations are sincere.
