Why You Need A World Map In Your Home

When we moved house there was one room I was most excited about. Our dining room. We had never had a proper place for us to sit and have our meals, a table to craft at and bake cakes. I honestly haven’t got the words to explain my need for a dining room and my excitement.  Weirdly enough this is …

#MySundayPhoto – Daddy’s Girl

“Mummy you are always angry!” “Daddy you are lovely!” That pretty much sums up my entire week in a nutshell and it’s devastating. I think it’s natural that one parent is more strict than the other, and clearly that is me right now. Or that’s what the girls are perceiving it as. P3 has always been my little shadow but …

Colouring Fun With BIC Kids

Art was my favourite subject as a child. I would spend so much time doodling drawings and creating stories with my artwork. I probably went through a lot of art materials and have tried out many different varieties. Thankfully my girls are following in my footsteps of creativity. They love to sit and draw. It sounds a little silly but …

Siblings 2017 – May

Is anyone else getting super annoyed by the ever changing weather? I know we are in England and it’s expected but my golly I don’t know whether I am coming or going. I never know whether to pack winter coats or dress them in summer dresses. P2 especially has wanted to wear her sandals even when it is raining. This …

Project Mc2 Dolls Review

My girls are gradually steering away from the Peppa Pig episodes and moving onto more grown up programmes. We actually never watch live television and rely solely on our Netflix subscription and YouTube to keep the girls entertained. I’ve started to introduce them to more programmes that are less animated and much more life like. One of the Ines I’m …

Crayola Doodle Delirium Board Game Review

I have been a fan of Crayola for a very long time. It is my go to brand for drawing and painting material for the kids because quite frankly, they wash off everything! I recently was made aware that Crayola are now producing games and this completely excited me as I’ve been trying to gather a bigger collection of board …

Clementoni Princess Magnetic Drawing Board Review

My girls really enjoy getting crafty and drawing. Sometimes I feel incredible guilt when I am just far too busy to entertain the mess that getting creative can bring. Over the years I have come to love Magnetic Drawing Boards and we’ve had many different shapes and sizes of them. Recently P2 was sent her very own Disney Princess Magnetic …

Sports Craft #BostikBloggers

Life has been pretty hectic the past few weeks. What with all the walking we’ve been doing due to car issues, constant child demands and being vitamin D lacking, I have just been completely exhausted. So when the Bostik box arrived this month I was rather excited to be able to let the girls craft away on their own. As …

Jungle Craft #BostikBloggers

Normally when my Bostik box arrives I plan an activity for the kids to create so that it’s more adult led and they can focus a bit better. But this time I handed over the reigns to my seven year old. Getting crafty keeps her calm when she’s having a bit of a bad behaviour day. I think it helps …

Weather Craft Fun #BostikBloggers

This months theme is definitely appropriate. The weather is finally feeling warmer and brighter which generally makes things feel happier for me. Of course we are in England and the weather is never really certain. We were sent another box of fun craft supplies from Bostik and this month I came up with an idea. I originally wanted a weather …

Dragon Craft Idea For Kids #BostikBlogger

This month’s theme for the #BostikBlogger campaign was Dragons. My girls seem obsessed with dragons and dinosaurs at the moment so this was quite an exciting project for them. I decided to give them some helpful tips but to pretty much allow them to make it by themselves. So here we have a dragon craft idea for kids. A friendly …

Teaching My Daughter About Money With thinkmoney

We were recently challenged by thinkmoney to decorate a piggy bank but to also think about what financial advice we want our girls to carry with them until they’re older. I was certainly never good with money and spent my very early “grown up” life in debt and borrowing money from my Grandad constantly. Meeting my hubby changed things, he …

Crafty DIY For All The Family

Let’s face it, DIY jobs around the house aren’t actually that fun! In fact, they are more of a chore that you leave on a list of things that need doing for as long as you possibly can.    With the kids off school for summer these jobs are just going to get put off for even longer! Firstly you …

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …
