We’re back from our jolly holibobs! Hear all about our week in The Lake District. We talk about England’s deepest Lake and highest mountain. (As usual Frogger and Toad have forgotten most of the things we did!)
We managed to supplement our meals with some healthy foraging in Roan Woods and experienced two different levels of customer service from two pubs owned by the same people.
We get up close and personal with the demonising May bug.
We describe how we enjoyed our trip to Muncaster Castle and whether we think the haunted legends are true.
Finally, join Frogger and Toad for their ‘Score of the Week.’.
Following our week of birthdays, Frogger tells us all about her wee party with her home educating friends and sits in the hot seat as we fire this years birthday quiz at her.
Paul and Frogger have been foraging and we discuss the abundance of food to be found in the hedgerows, the garden and the woods. We talk about how to take the sting out of eating nettles and share some delicious recipes to try out with your own children.
Finally, Toad and Frogger share their Scores of the Week.
Please note there will be no podcast next week, we will return in two weeks time. In June too! (June is busting out all over….)
The birthday season has officially began. On this weeks podcast we celebrate not one, but two big days in our calendar. Firstly, Newt turns 2 closely followed by our eldest amphibian, Frogger. We try our best not to allow our beliefs and healthy eating ideals to slide by creating a low sugar, grain free, nut free chocolate brownie cheese cake.
We discuss our attempts to begin new and inexpensive birthday traditions. We share our ideas for birthday parties, games and food and hope to inspire our listeners to share their own traditions and ideas with us.
Join Frogger and Toad for their ‘Scores Of The Week’.
We’ve had an eggcelent Easter and discuss not only how to blow eggs but also the traditional method of decorating them using melted wax and dyes. Once decorated, we hung our eggs on our seasonal tree, and discuss how to find your own every changing centre piece for free, to sit proudly on display in your home.
It’s St. George’s day at the weekend and Toad tells us the history of George and the Dragon. We talk about traditional British ways to celebrate and encourage our listeners to start their own traditions.
Frogger recites an April poem as we welcome the changing seasons. Finally, Frogger and Toad struggle to narrow down their weekly activities to just one score.
Happy Easter to all of our lovely listeners and a huge thank you for sharing your time with us. We hope you get lots of Easter treats and enjoy your extra long weekend.
On this week’s show we discuss our composting plans and update you on our seed selection as we plant in our vegetable bed.
We visited Whitby abbey, and enjoyed a low sugar packed lunch and share with you our ideas and recipes to enjoy a picnic without compromising healthy eating.
We chat about the Jewish festival of pesach and share a yeast free recipe.
With thanks to mysteries in time, we have moved on to ancient Greece and we discuss how much the children have learned about Greek legends by reading the accompanying book. Toad tells us the story of Persephone.
