Do you have room to play?

If you are not so fortunate to have a separate space for a play room then the 6-week summer holidays can hammer home how the younger members of the family can take over the house.

Toys, toys and more toys!  In our house, they are everywhere… I swear they multiply overnight. They are everywhere, in the living room (obviously), in the dining area, in the kitchen, hallway, and bedrooms… much to my frustration they even make it into the down stairs loo.
