There's a huge adjustment when a new baby arrives, especially for other little family members. I still remember watching my two-year-old stepping into her big sister shoes. It was certainly a tricky time for her and as her mother I remember feeling so much guilt. Suddenly all the time I usually spent with my little girl was being absorbed by the new baby. The brain fog I experienced, made it so difficult to come up with new interesting play ideas. It was at that time that my little girl decided daddy was her favourite, which was admittedly a relief, albeit a little heart-breaking too.
If I'd been gifted some Happy Little People activity cards at that time, I think I would have cried tears of joy. I could have referred to them during the in-between newborn moments when I really needed some inspiration for fun toddler activities. Likewise, the cards would also have given my husband great age-appropriate play ideas.
That's why I'm so delighted to now be stocking the entire Happy Little People Activity card collection. The First Year card deck has been really popular since its launch last year and now you can order a little something for the siblings. Choose from the Second Year, Third Year and Kinder Years sets.
Did you know, I'm happy to wrap a sibling's item separately? Feel free to let me know the sibling's name, and I'll include a little gift tag with the child's name. I bet a surprise gift would bring a big smile to a little face. After all, the more happy little people, the merrier the parents.
