Make a tape city for kids!

#parenting   #kbn   #ece

Doing activities with my kids. Decorating cakes too.
Introduction
Hi! I'm Jamie. My husband and I have 3 boys, Henry [a preschooler], George [a toddler] and Louis [my baby]. I'm a baker's wife and a hands on mom trying to figure out this parenting thing.

I'm the kid blogger and creator of Hands on : as we grow, a blog all about the kids activities that I do at home with the boys. We're full of energy and excitement and we sneak in learning opportunities wherever we can. But most importantly, we like to have fun with all of it.

I also own a bakery with my husband and decorate cakes! I do wedding cakes, specialty birthday cakes, plus the typical sheet cakes.

EXCELLENT FOOD! Outstanding burgers! And we all loved the fried ice cream for dessert. I loved the low-key atmosphere. And the Stellanator looks like a challenge we'll have to come back for!
