So welcome to the first installment of my monthly “Favourites” series… Fashion Now that both my littles are in school and nursery, I’m starting to get a bit of “me” back.

Top 5 Rainy Day Activities For Visually Impaired Children

It’s difficult to keep typically developing children from becoming bored and literally losing their minds on a wild, windy and wet day. Though when you have a SEN child with a visual impairment, you have to think outside the box to come up with appropriate activities that are suitable for their level of sight loss, yet aren’t too easy that they’ll get bored quickly but rather helps them build on a skill, all the while and most importantly being FUN!
