In The Playroom is a parenting and lifestyle blog, written by a team of two mums, Anna and Luciana, both living in London. Between us we have five children ranging from three to twelve years old and lots of experience to share.
Anna started this blog in 2012 to share ideas about playing, learning, and life with young children and to document our days out. Since then, the site has grown a lot. As well as taking on new team members and guest contributors, we are also covering more lifestyle, fashion, health and relationships topics in addition to our child focused content.
We love to share kids crafts and activities which are simple and easy for any parent to do with the supplies you probably already have in your home. I’m passionate about sensory play and we also love process based activities, as well as traditional crafts. Since the site has grown, and my kids are starting to get older – we now have regular contributors on the site too, allowing us to keep sharing toddler and preschool activities with you.
Our kids are our helpful volunteers, giving their feedback on toys. They are my inspiration and motivation in coming up with lots of fun play ideas for them to enjoy.
