Hey lovelies, I’m Sian ! (pronounced Sharn) I’m a mum of 3, primary teacher and insta-blogger who is PASSIONATE about play and learning, simple crafts and activities using everyday items.
I’m Sian, the one woman band behind the creator of ‘Teach. Investigate. Play.’ I’m a primary school teacher turned blogger and mum to three children. I’m super passionate about providing fun, easy and low-cost ideas for parents and teachers. I know both the challenges of being a full-time working mum and a ‘stay-at-home mum’ having experienced both at one stage or another.
I originally created Teach. Investigate. Play whilst staying at home with my daughter. I wanted to make sure the activities we did were not only educational, but fun and engaging too. I started posting on Instagram a few times a week to interact with other parents in a similar situation and that has now grown to daily posts about the activities we do.
For me one of the most important things to do during this crazy journey called parenthood is to stay connected. It can be a lonely old ride at times so I urge you to get involved with the wider Teach. Investigate. Play community. Having like-minded people to share my ideas with has honestly saved my sanity on more than one occasion! You can do that by joining The Creative Play Hub groups over on Facebook.
What I loved the most was connecting with like-minded parents and educators which led to me finding a beautiful community. Friendships have blossomed which in turn have led to fabulous collaborations, from which, EVERYDAYPLAYHACKS was born.
