The Wombles

Wimbledon Common Windmill

I always get inspiration from activities that I do with the children in my Nanny job. As you know, we haven’t really been going anywhere due to lockdown. So as I live in Wimbledon and I frequent the common often, I had thought about doing a quick blog on the loveable Wombles.

Then it snowed!

The snow was magical in Wimbledon Park.

More to books…

I am missing libraries and book shops, so my go to website is world of It’s a second hand website with good quality books.

There is a mural of the Wombles in Wimbledon centre, across from the station.

Why not share the Wombles with your little ones during lockdown?

A sad part of lockdown is the litter being left behind, especially overflowing bins and coffee cups discarded. Perhaps litter picking isn’t advisable in these times, but we can encourage our little ones to take their litter home and be good examples, as children really are our future!

The Wombles are rare but sometimes you can get a sneaky peak of them!
When lockdown is over, hopefully, the annual half marathon will be back on, it’s such a fun day. You can cheer on all the runners and maybe spot a Womble.

Show me your snow creations or Womble fun.
