I never thought I would be writing this thank you post. Adventures of Adam has come such a long way since the blog went live 15 months ago. 445 posts later and thanks to your support we have made it to the final of the MAD Blog Awards for Best Pre School Blog!
The blog originally started as a way to document our adventures following an horrendous pregnancy with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It has since developed into a resource for parents using “play activities that do not cost the earth but will mean the world to your little one“. Why not check out our most popular posts to see more of our adventures.
Here are a few of our blogging highlights:
This was where it all began. Our first ever challenge. It was where I looked at everyday objects around the house and saw them in a new light -they were turned into play opportunities.
We LOVE our Tuff Spot – so much so that we set ourselves the challenge of creating a different Tuff Spot activity for each letter of the alphabet. Alongside this we hosted the Tuff Spot A-Z Blog Hop where bloggers showcased their own activities. Adventures of Adam readers also participated by sharing their Tuff Spot adventures on our Facebook page.
Each day during our Sensory Play Challenge we used a different sensory prompt. We were joined by bloggers from around the world in our Blog Hop as well as Adventures of Adam readers. As a result of the challenge we have over 150 sensory play activities.
* Raising awareness of Hyperemesis Gravidarum
I spent my entire pregnancy bed bound because of HG and know I will have to go through it again as we would like Adam to have a sibling. I have made it my mission to find HG friendly play activities so that Mums can still be part of their children’s play whilst they are ill.
During the past 15 months I have also become a Trustee of the Pregnancy Sickness Support charity, created the 2014 and 2015 videos for International Hyperemesis Gravidarum Awareness Day and raised money for Pregnancy Sickness Support by completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
