FOUR WAYS TO MAKE RAINY AUTUMN FUN

From a bright idea for rainy days to rain coats your kids won’t mind wearing, we round up four of our favourite transitional pieces for your Mini Resident

 

1 Rainy colouring days
Let your child create their own vision of the city with a fantastic colour-in map of London. The giant poster features some of the capital’s most famous landmarks, and is perfect for little ones with a creative streak. £9.90 from stonegift.com

2 Curl up with a book
Lost Dr Seuss stories are being republished this autumn, much to the delight of adults and children alike. The new book, Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories, resurrects four of Seuss’s lost tales. To mark the occasion, Art.co.uk have released a range of new prints featuring the Dr, as well as some of the book’s other much-loved characters. With bold colours and variety of stylish frames to choose from, they’ll look good in children’s rooms from nursery age right up to teenage. art.co.uk

4 Cosy interiors 
The Daydreamer chair from west London-based Sofa Workshop is created especially for young people who love to lounge – with one arm higher than the other, it provides the perfect set-up for dangling legs over one side. We love the Sanderson Capuchins Chintz fabric that this one’s upholstered in, too. £1,629.
