Very informative post indeed! Child safety should be a major concern for all. Number of accidents due to faulty electrical fittings are increasing these days.

In response to: How to Make Ice Lollies

I make pineapple juice lollies on a regular basis and it freezes without a problem in my standard freezer (maybe the author is getting confused with pineapple stopping jelly setting). They even freeze with rum in (for grown up lollies)

In response to: How to Cope with Moody Children

Sanchari Dutta [Visitor]
well, my experience says that our babies are pretty much dependent on us and if they find any flaw while we are taking care of them, that is when they lose their temper. We being mothers cannot avoid their anger but can cope up with it. I came across this blog on which explains about how one should deal with their angry baby. I found it pretty helpful.

In response to: Home Video

Dawn Purton [Visitor]
I often take videos of my children as they play and also achieving certain milestones. It would be great if there was a way to upload these videos into the daily diary. I don't know how complicated this would make the process of downloading the entire diary upon graduating to school, but my kids toucan learn diaries already hold so many treasured images, I think in addition to that this would be a great feature.

In response to: Planning Activities for the EYFS

Teresa [Visitor]
Thank you so much for this, it has given me some ideas to do with the children I am minding at the moment, it's all been a bit of a shock going back to childminding after being in a setting and up until now I haven't had EY children, I now have a 1yr old and a 2 yr old, so this will help in my planning for the pair of them.

Thank you again.

In response to: Threat to the Regulation of Childminders

Penny Webb [Visitor]
Thank you for highlighting this issue and the petition.

As one of a group of childminders who started the 'ball rolling' for the petition, I can stress how important it is for everyone to read up on the all the possible changes being discussed and if feel as strongly as I do to sign the petition.

Thank you again for making your members aware of the issues.

Yes, you can freeze creme fraiche although it may separate a little in the process, mix it with other ingredients and you'll probably be fine. If you look on the packaging, it will probably state that it is 'Suitable for home freezing'.

If you still wanted a pond or pool you could simply put netting over it so if they were going to fall in the SUCURE net would hold them!
