Jelly Play

We love messy activities in this house. Here’s a quick photo blog post of our jelly play today. We went on a bug and sea creature hunt! My two boys really enjoyed themselves! We used a mini beast hunting set, and some measuring scoops too. We filled some cups and jugs with jelly mix and […]

Kate Middleton, How Dare You Be So Beautiful!

The Royal Baby has arrived in the UK, and I’m guessing the majority of people (worldwide) have heard about it, read about it, or watched some related news regarding it. It’s big news whether you like it or not! I’m not really a Royal fanatic, but I don’t dislike the Royals either. I can take […]

Sea Life Centre Sea Stars Attraction

Recently, we were lucky enough to visit the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham for the launch of their new Sea Stars attraction. We had so much fun! Before you reach the Sea Stars Attraction you pass an open rock pool with a few star fish in, I even stroked one! Although according to my […]

How to Make a Fairy Garden

Over the last 12 months I’ve noticed that Fairy Gardens have become increasingly popular, from tiny fairy doors on trees, to extravagant forests dedicated to our fairy friends. We’ve visited several places that have had some sort of fairy garden, and it’s always proved a magical experience for my boys. With all of this in […]

Dinosaur Activity – DIY Fossils

My two boys love playing with dinosaurs, and they love making dinosaur lands with volcanoes, and hidden dinosaur bones. They have fantastic imaginations, so I thought I’d make their dinosaur adventures even more exciting today by making their very own dinosaur fossils. This dinosaur activity was a huge hit with them! We made our fossils […]

Kid Zinger Review

My two boys love fresh fruit juices, smooth ones of course because they’re fussy like that! They are limited to 150ml of this a day though. They also drink sugar free cordial and also have 150ml minimum of milk each day. After 6pm in our house there is a water-only rule. Sometimes this rule is […]

Real Bedtime Stories for Children

My children love reading books; pop-up books, lift up flap books, fairy tales, magazines, picture books, cook books, and encyclopedia type books. My two boys also love bedtime stories, apparently. Books keep them quiet and calm, and also help them to focus their attention, unless they’re bedtime stories, and then they often have the opposite […]

Whitworths Review

My 4yo loves raisins, he would eat the whole bag if I let him, but they have to be good ones! None of these dry, tiny excuses of raisins, but the big juicy raisins. I have only ever found one brand live up to my 4yo’s expectations, and that is Whitworths. Whitworths raisins are delicious, […]

Sensory Stepping Stones

Here’s our homemade sensory stepping stones activity… My 4yo is all about textures, he adores soft textures, but cannot stand rough textures, so an activity based around textures is highly beneficial for him. My 2yo just loves making a mess and standing on things he thinks he shouldn’t, so a sensory stepping stones activity sounded […]
