|REVIEW|the game of things

Are you looking for a game to play with older kids, family and friends at Christmas?  We’ve been sent The Game of Things to try out, which we will be using when hosting New Years Eve this year.  

Aimed at over 14’s and recommended for more than 4 people, The Game of Things isn't really a competitive game, it’s more a game of laughs. Younger children can play if they are able to read and write but you need to ‘edit’ the cards first to remove any inappropriate ones! 

|FOOD|chocolate and banana ready brek

T loves Ready Brek and Despicable Me, so I thought I’d make a special Ready Brek for him, fit for minions!

We were recently sent the new DM3 dvd and a DM3 mineez toy so we made a morning of it and enjoyed watching the film after eating our special Ready Brek.

I always like to help T make a Christmas decoration for his Grandparents and Auntie, I know my mum and my sister love having one each year to add to their tree. We usually use them as gift tags on their gifts from him.

This year we are joining in with The Mad House’s Kid Made Christmas decorations daily blog hop along with lots of other great bloggers, pop over and see the amazing crafts that have been made.  Yesterday the fab Le Coin de Mel showed us how to make a gorgeous reindeer advent calendar, which is definitely worth looking at. 

|REVIEW|air hogs micro drone

At the very top of T's wish list is a drone, so when buddy the elf on the shelf sent him one on loan to try out for Father Christmas, he was pretty chuffed.

The Air Hogs DR1 micro race drone is aimed at children aged 8+ but I was pretty confident that T would be able to fly it.

|LETS LEARN|halloween worksheet download

Do you need 5 minutes to yourself this half term?  Drink a hot coffee or even just unload the dishwasher in peace with the aide of our free Halloween worksheet 😉

Half time is great when you get to spend it with your kids (sadly I’m not this one 😢) but we all need 5 minutes to ourselves to catch a breath, don’t we?

|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.
