Five Ways to Make Childhood Memories Your Children Will Remember!

Top Ways to Make Childhood Memories | The Nursery Collective

by Catherine Nelson-Williams

As a parent in an increasingly faster paced world, I often find myself struggling to find ways to make childhood memories with my kids that are truly meaningful.  I see a lot of other parents around me doing the same. Suddenly as parents, we find ourselves overdoing it to try and “make memories” - like trying to get the perfect family holiday photo so we can pop it on Facebook or Instagram (c’mon admit it, we all do this), and stressing out when our kids won’t co-operate. Or going a little crazy trying to fit in “memory making activities” by doing activities or visiting attractions we can’t even guarantee our kids will even remember.

See the thing is, memories don’t actually have to be made. Memories just ARE.

We can’t choose what our kids actually remember, just as our parents couldn’t choose what we remember from our own childhood. Most kids can’t remember much before the age of 3. If you think about your own childhood memories, you’ll probably remember feelings and moments, times you spent with your family, funny stories and events, right?

Personalised Height Chart: Growscroll Review by TNC Expert Mumma Morrison

Personalised Height Charts | Review by Fi Morrison

by Fi Morrison

I’ve always been a sentimental kind of person. The kind who keeps handwritten notes, dated photographs and small tokens of appreciation and love. To me, these things represent moments in time that I have cherished and want to hold onto for a lifetime. As a first-time mother, my sentimentality increased tenfold. I am always looking for ways to mark the moments of my son’s life so I can remember them for years to come (hence starting my own blog). Countless photographs have been taken; milestone cards, keepsakes and books have been used to document all the special occasions; even birthday cards have been kept as a reminder of these milestones. But it has only been recently that I’ve looked into personalised height charts as another token of my son’s childhood.

Mothers Day Edit

By Fi Morrison

This year is my very first Mother’s Day and I have to be honest, I’m pretty darn excited. Not completely for selfish reasons (although, which mum doesn’t like to have their ONE day of pampering a year?!). I am excited about celebrating almost a year of starting my motherhood journey, and spending time being loved and appreciated by my son (and husband). And as this is our one allocated day of the year to be a little bit spoilt, how can we not take this opportunity to find some amazing Mother’s Day gifts for ourselves (unless you are one of the lucky mums whose husband is a good gift giver… anyone?!). So if you’re looking to give hubby (and your kids) a nudge in the right direction, or find something for your own Mum, make sure you check out this brilliant range of gifts from our Mother’s Day Edit! - Love, Fi xxx
