December PP

I have an article in Practical Parenting this month. Actually, I'm pleased to say I have articles coming out in the next 4 issues, so stay tuned.

This month's is a really simple idea for sand play. Most kids love playing in the sand pit and I've written about an idea for imaginative play for all those animal lovers out there. It's on page 82 of December's PP, so have a look if you get a chance.


  1. Congratulations on having your articles published Belinda! I will have to pick myself up a copy. We certainly bought your early learning book at the right time, we are having lots of fun with your ideas over the holidays so far.

    Wishing you and the family a very happy new year.

  2. Love it Belinda - this was how I have discovered your blog - I actually read this article, tried it out and then blogged about it as such a great idea for little ones. As you know - we created Dino World at our place in the sandpit, and even 2 months on, we still get out there and enjoy moving the landscape around, changing the animals/dinosaurs over and so on. Thanks again - you have some amazing activities and suggestions that I am going to try out~
