|GIVEAWAY!|rubiks junior



T loves his Rubik’s cube, but he struggles with it a bit, he loves twisting it round and trying in vain to get a side filled with just one colour but he’s not yet managed it.

We’ve recently become John Adams Rubik's bloggers , which we were thrilled about. And were sent some Rubiks junior animal puzzles, these have proved to be much better for our little puzzle solver.

|REVIEW|monster island dvd - out now!!!



With Halloween coming up there’s no better time to share a spooky family film and Monster Island fits the bill perfectly! 

Just the right balance of spookiness and a great storyline, it’s definitely a film we’ll watch time and time again. 

|MAKE|Hexbug cardboard roll bats



Love Halloween crafts?  Well this activity is just for you then!  We saw Red Ted Art share a great craft on their Instagram stories for fantastic litte cardboard roll people which moved around using Hexbugs!  I knew I had to give that a go but wanted to change it up a bit for Halloween.


|FOOD|spooky snack mix



I don't usually let T have this many sweets but as it's Halloween a few treats don't hurt do they?

This snack mix is super easy and is made mostly from ingredients found at the supermarket. 

It was perfect for sitting down with a new monster DVD (review coming soon!) as a nice little treat.

|LET'S LEARN|What we learned this week - week 6


Week 6???? I know it's week 6 and this is only my first actual update, if you were waiting for this after I promised I'd be writing up how we get on, sorry, life just got in the way.

If you've no idea what I'm talking about, let me briefly explain. During the school holidays, T asked me to start doing 'activities' with him again it's something that we used to do a lot when we had Fridays together. Now we have time each day together I decided to dedicate time each day for some one to one time. Just he and I during the week, and with Daddy at the weekends.
