We've had some great feedback from some of you after our blog post on playrooms, so we thought that we'd share a few more of our feather the nest favourites. Pinterest is full of creative and inspiring ways to decorate your kid's bedrooms, and we've noticed a recent trend where swings and slides are being brought inside and into kids bedrooms and playrooms. We love them. Click on images for links xx
Kids' books: Dear Zoo June 05 2014, 0 Comments
Lift-the-flap books are a favourite in one of the feather the nest team's households, and Rod Campbell's book, 'Dear Zoo', is particularly well loved. The simple drawings and easy to follow to story make 'Dear Zoo' a great gift.
Inspiration board: Playrooms June 03 2014, 0 Comments
As much as I love that our kids enjoy actively setting up imaginary shops, or building train tracks that run the length of our house, there are some afternoons where I wish that I could shut the door and hide the mess that is ensues. I've often thought how great it would be to have a kids playroom where they could leave their imagined worlds set up, all ready to go for tomorrow's dreaming. I'm inspired by all of the below, and hopefully one day, we'll have enough room to make a playroom a reality. Until then, we'll continue with our 'let's just tidy up at the end of each day' mantra.

We love it when people share their clever ideas for kids and think it's even better when they're happy to share them for free! Play kitchens and toy food are a rather big deal in one of the feather the nest team's house at the moment and when she came across these gorgeous free printable fruit, she knew that it was something that she had to share with our feather the nest family.

Kids' Books: The Man From the Land of Fandango April 03 2014, 0 Comments
We think that books should be a vital part of any kids' room and as they often on display as part of a room's decor, we thought that we'd start reviewing and featuring some of our feather the nest team's favourites. We'd love to hear which titles are favourites in your house too - comment below or send us an email and we'll look to include them in this feature.
This week's pick is 'The Man From the Land of Fandango' written by Margaret Mahy. It's circus like nature and hilarious rhymes make 'The Man From the Land of Fandango' a regular bedtime story in one of our team's households. There are loads of onomatopoeic word and the beautifully colourful illustrations offer plenty to look at. Highly recommended x
