There will also be a “mix, purchase and play” play dough station for the very little ones. In all, a host of positive and creative activities that will engage and help develop budding creative and conceptual skills. The kiddies section will also be beautifully decorated by Sam Scarborough and promises a visual feast of delightful ideas for kids, such as bunting, a tiny teepee, and a charming gazebo. Sam’s latest book will be on sale in the kiddies’ section and she will be on hand to sign copies.

- An art wall in a kids room is something to be proud of.The handiwork displayed for all to see and not just shoved in a drawe or haphasardly sticky-taped to the fridge.
- The same applies to toys and the clutter on the floor. Give your child a magical play cupboard in their room.
- Sam stresses that older kids who have homework to do need to have the area clearly defined in a way that gives them a sense of importance, so they dont view it as a drudge.
- A colourful pin board is a must they can use it to display anything from information for tasks to good comments from teachers to bits andd pieces that define that corner as their special space.
- Remember, always be ready to change kids get bored easily and even just painting the bunk beds a funky colour will add a new dimension to the room.
