If you’re looking for a creative approach to learning and play, then you’ve come to the right place!

Hi there! I’m Sian, the creator of ‘Teach. Investigate. Play.’ I’m a qualified primary school teacher and mum to three children. I’m really 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.  (You can find some creative ideas in my eBook on the shop page – there’s a free sample here.) 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!


This is me with two out of three children! We love getting outdoors, especially on weekends.
