http://www.tamingthegoblin.com/2014/03/the-sunday-parenting-party-coping-with.html
A couple of weeks ago I got a call from Goblin's nursery asking if they could give him Calpol because he wasn't feeling too good. He'd had a bit of a cold over the weekend but he'd been OK that morning so I'd sent him (one of those difficult decisions where I might have made a different call if ...

Goblin performs his Octonauts puppet show on the blog today 
http://www.tamingthegoblin.com/2014/02/easy-peasy-puppet-show.html
Fortunately we have an Octonauts sticker book so I was able to use that as a reference to copy the characters. I nearly fell off my chair in surprise when Goblin agreed to colour them. Goblin flat out refuses to do colouring in usually. I have never insisted he 'stays in the lines' when ...

When you can't find a printable that fits your child's interests, why not just make your own. 
http://www.tamingthegoblin.com/2014/01/make-your-own-matching-cards.html
There are lots of wonderful blogs that offer printables to help your child with learning. Goblin and I like doing matching and I have scoured the internet looking for good printables over the last 4 years. However I have come to the conclusion that finding a good printable that fits your child's ...

Do you have a baby on the way or know someone else who does?
http://www.tamingthegoblin.com/2014/02/the-sunday-parenting-party-surviving.html
With one new cousin in the bag this week (a beautiful baby girl) and another on the way soon, Goblin is suddenly getting a lot of babies in his life. So I thought I would take this opportunity to pull together a bunch of useful posts for new parents (or even those doing it for a second or third ...

Introduction
Taming the Goblin is a blog about the fun activities and adventures I have with my son, Goblin. You will find educational activities, messy play, cooking, lots of outdoor fun, ideas for outings in the UK, and some adult craft ideas. 
I try to give an honest account of our days which means often the activities don't go quite as planned.
