12 Days of Parenting is back!17:45:00
12 Days of Parenting is back for another year and i'm so excited I've typed 5 out to the first 8 words wrong!
This year, things are working a little different, there will be no brand involvement, no need to subscribe (though we would love you to if you wish) and no competitions. However we will be writing for the love of it and giving you plenty to read, from 12 tips to get you through the season to 12 best parts of 2016, we hope you will join us and find plenty of amazing posts to read.
Our main theme this year is '12 Moments of parenting' and will be made up of 12 mini themes. Each mini theme is set around the number 12, which of course we've borrowed from the traditional '12 days of Christmas'. You can write your posts about Christmas, the festive season or any other religious or cultural festivities that you celebrate around this time of the year. Everyone is included!
Each post needs to relate to parenting in some way, but you can customise the mini themes to suit your own writing as long as you stay within the context stated above.
The mini themes are as follows:12 ways to stay organised / things to do to prepare for Christmas / the season
12 things I love about Christmas / the season
12 things to do on Christmas / the season day or during Christmas / the season
12 gift ideas for Christmas / the season
12 Christmas / the season traditions
12 activities to do with children during Christmas / the season
12 things Christmas / the season means to me
12 ways to wrap up Christmas / the season
12 wishes / hopes / dreams / for the new year
12 acts of kindness
12 highlights of 2016
