Garden Days

This half term has been glorious, and so we haven’t strayed much further than our garden. We had friends over to play and then just a couple of activities; swimming, farm, pond dipping at our local National Trust and Fin spent two 3-hour sessions at his parkour club and came back worn out.

The Petit-Fernand brand create personalised labels and products, which assist your children in every social context. All their products are 100% customisable of which our kids were thrilled to design their own labels for school, nursery and extra curricular activities.  They all discussed together what their favourite logos were, parrots, penguins and a wolf were firm favourites, and then got to choose the background, font and colours of the labels.
