It was five years ago today that the first Time Travelling With Kids blog post appeared. I started it, partly, in order to entertain and/or enlighten adults and kids who are already history aficionados, but mostly to help parents and teachers spark an interest in kids who aren’t. So, Happy 5th Birthday, blog. And Happy […]


This year, spark an interest in history by consulting this site on your kids’ birthdays to show them the historic happenings for that date. https://www.onthisday.com/events/january/5


Today is my great-niece’s 8th birthday. Like all little girls (actually, like almost all girls, regardless of age), she likes jewellery. Each month, I’ll share the history of a birthstone, with hers, the garnet, being first up. https://www.jewelsforme.com/garnet-meaning


Since this is Queen Victoria’s birth month (May 24th, 1819), a Victorian birthday party might find favour with kids born in this month. (Or even ones who just like Victorian Times.)

January 4th brings the first of our family birthdays, namely that of a young lady, who turned seven today. Over the next year, I will, each month, present ideas for an historically-themed birthday party for young history buffs. Since the one pictures has always been big on princesses, and her daddy (the kid in the […]

Or nine, if you go by actual February 29th celebrations. When leaplings can officially celebrate their birthdays in common (non-leap years) depends […]


Birthdays are a time when kids can look up what was going on in the world when they first arrived in it or find out if anything of historic importance took place on the same date, albeit a different year. Some will fare better than others in this regard. No one famous was born on […]


Since January 4th marks our family’s first birthday of the year, it seems as good a time as any to talk about the history of birthdays. My great-niece Layla is four today, which makes this her Grand Birthday, the birthday on which someone turns the age of their birth date. For her, that means turning […]


Abraham Lincoln once said, “We cannot escape history”. He was right. We can’t. Every day of the year has history attached to it. Take today, for example: ·       In 1187, October 2nd was the day Saladin captured Jerusalem. ·       In 1452, October 2nd was the day on which the Duke and Duchess of York welcomed […]
