Welcome to Dandelion Songs!

"We are two mothers who want our children to know what childhood was like. Before Nintendos, before computers. Before fear of freedom. What it was like for us, and for our mothers, and their mothers. We want them to know adventure, to know play, to know the world. And not the controlled, organised world that modern mothers seem to think they are tied to, but the real, natural world that is here on our doorstep. Come and join us on an adventure in childhood."

Having a summer birthday, or even when they have a few friends around on a warm summers day is a great opportunity to let them have a water fight. It's definitely a 'more the merrier' game. And I have been astonished to have more than one young visitor who has never had one. Imagine.

They don't need fancy big water guns. Any plastic container will do. A hose is great fun, although you might consider limiting the time they use it as they use huge amounts of water. Also, you need to be sure they play fair as it can often be the cause of fights over who turn it is!

this is a lovely blog with lovely, simple ideas that really work. with all the toys that one can buy now, we tend to forget that children's imagintion are so brilliant. I love to hear my kids play their make-believe games. I'll be checking this blog regularly, do keep up the good work.
