Weekly Roundup 01: Go easy on us too

When we were kids, we all thought the grownups had life totally figured out - right?

They knew when to replace the toilet roll, how to get to the cool park on the far side of town, why vegetables were important... they just knew it all!

But it looks a little different from this side of the glass.  We're desperately trying to stay one step ahead of our kids' needs - next size clothes, variety in their diet, new conversations round the dinner table. 

That's what THE SUDS are all about: a little inspiration to draw on through the week as you think up new adventures with your little ones.

This week: a note from Brook; an extremely wholesome baked porridge; cute kids furniture; creative gardening and Halloween activities.

Inspiring Confident Parents

GRASP's founder, Brook, on how the shift from instinct- vs. information-led decisions has left many parents in a state of constant worry: "Parents need more encouragement, not more instructions... Parents need simple products that take care of the new questions and worries that we’re told we should care about, so that we can go back to parenting confidently".

Chunky monkey banana baked oatmeal

ambitious kitchen chunky monkey oatmeal

We've been following Chicago-based Ambitious Kitchen for 5-6 years now, and it's genuinely changed the way we approach family cooking. This baked porridge recipe is easy to put together, suitable for all ages, and a wonderful warm treat for a rainy October morning.

The play kit by Lalo

We love the values of the Lalo founders who believe the job of being a parent is more important than the task of shopping for it. We love this Scandinavian style play set that puts the design in designated play space.

Build your own botanical garden

learn how to build your own mini, self-sustaining terrarium with this class

The Botanical Boys’ terrarium-making workshops are a brilliant way to spend a couple of hours in Coal Drops Yard - which is a great place to spend an afternoon with kids already. You get all the kit and know-how to build gorgeous, self-sustaining (and self-contained!) living gardens. Prices start at £48 - and look out for their Christmas wreath special!

Book yourself in here.

And finally, make your own halloween decorations

Halloween decorations you can make at home

We love this deceptively easy-to-make cat bunting that little ones can help make in time for Halloween. Just cut out cat face shapes from craft paper, hole punch the eyes, and string on to fairy lights (you’ll be digging them out for Christmas soon enough anyway). Get the full instructions - and a bunch of other Halloween craft ideas - over at Good Housekeeping.

Get making!

This game-changing dispensing and scrubbing silicone bath time brush gives your kids a better wash every bath time with lots of lather while gently massaging with super-soft silicone bristles.

Pebbl is uniquely designed for kids hands. It empowers them to wash and look after their own skin health and hygiene. Pebbl builds dexterity, develops gross and fine motor skills and encourages sensory play and awareness.

Made from durable, LFGB-approved food-grade silicone, it's also dishwasher safe for easy cleansing to prevent growth of mould and bacteria.
