Merry Christmas to all xx

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.....

The Little Ones were tucked up in bed, you see, after hanging their stockings by the fire with glee. A quick stop for photos under the Christmas tree and they all went to bed willingly...

Who am I kidding, three children and two cats.... they are far too excited to sleep, I am certain of that.

Getting stuck into 3D puzzles from Kidicraft

What do you do on dark winter evenings and soggy Sundays or even during the Christmas break? As the Little Ones grow older we are finding that we are playing more board games and doing more and more puzzles on days like those, we have dug out some old ones recently and this week we have been having a go at some new super 3D puzzles from Kidicraft.

Fuzzikins play sets review- colour, wash and re-colour

Have you heard of Fuzzikins? Cute fuzzy flocked pets that you can colour in and play with?Two years ago we reviewed Fuzzikins- cosy cats, both the girls enjoyed them then and they were played with for a very long time. The girls were lucky enough to get to choose a new playset each to review recently.

GraviTrax, for big kids and little kids alike!

I am always looking for something different for Christmas, especially for my husband. I like to buy him something that can be opened as a surprise or with an element of fun to go with the things he has asked for, the DIY stuff or the obligatory underwear.

I first saw GraviTrax at Blog On last year and knew immediately that I was going to get some for him for Christmas that year, I knew he would like it and the Little Ones would too.

Little 2 has a bed makeover with a Fab Lab luxury tye dye kit

I recently wrote about fun Little 2 and I had with a Fab Labs bath bomb kit and mentioned that Little 1 had been sent a Fab Labs kit to review too.  Little 1 received a Tye Dye luxury kit and I had the most amazing idea of what to do with it, a bed makeover!

Tactic games review, Flags of the world, Wonders of the world

Sunday afternoons are for chilling in our house, there is no gymnastics on that day so we usually have a quiet one, we often go out for a walk somewhere but recently, with all the illness we have had, we have favoured staying in and watching films or playing games. 

We have been reviewing these two games from Tactic games recently, Flags of the World and Wonders of the World, so what did we think?

An enchanted Christmas at Westonbirt Arboretum, Tetbury

On Friday evening we went to the opening of the annual enchanted Christmas event at Westonbirt Arbouretum in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, this was the third time we had been and it is certainly a fab Christmas family event, the Little Ones loved it and so did us grown-ups too.
