Show and Tell with Tiny Pop

Last weekend we got sent a fab box of crafting goodies from The Creation Station so we could get creative and make some things based around some amazing Tiny Pop shows like My Little Pony, Super Grover 2.0 and Cookie’s Crumby Pictures. We had a blast making everything and better still thanks to Tiny Pop’s latest idea, Show and Tell, we’ve been able to share our creations with them for an opportunity for them to be featured on air and maybe even win a prize!

Back to School Help from Learning Resources

Well that’s it, he’s back to school. Today is the end of his first week and we have had a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Tears, anxiety, worry, excitement, joy. I won’t say it’s been great to have him back in school, but it hasn’t been bad either. Just another change to get used to. Overall it’s been tough but manageable.

Taking the Bioglan Omega-3 Challenge

Omega-3 helps keep our hearts, brains and vision healthy, great! But how do we make sure we’re getting enough of it? What even is enough of it? Do we just have to eat all the fish? What if you don’t like fish? Or you need to eat so much of it you run out of time to eat other things? Helpfully Bioglan are here to help in a practical way.

Playmobil Dinos – Review

We are so lucky to have been sent some of the Playmobil Dinos sets to review and it was fair to say from the moment they arrived L was rather excited, but due to some less than desirable behaviour he had to wait a little while until he could open them. Not great for me as I like to crack on with reviews but sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do as a parent.

Summer Holidays at Roarr!

We spent a very happy and hot day at Roarr! with a very happy and hot child this week. During lockdown I had asked L to write down anything that he wanted to do once we were able and visiting the dinosaurs was on that list, so when we were gifted tickets to visit I couldn’t wait to tell him.

Getting Through Lockdown

Oh my word the last few months have been weird. In the weeks preceding lockdown I had come to the realisation that my mental health was really suffering and I needed some help, but then of course it became a lot harder to come by. 

The initial few weeks of lockdown were just what I needed, something to focus my energy and my mind on, then as it became the new normal things started to slip again. So I focused on the smaller things I could do to make everything a little bit better.

Diggerland Kent

Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to be guests at Diggerland Kent. We had a fabulous time but then lockdown happened and it just didn’t feel like the right time to be writing about this great day out we had enjoyed, that now, no one else could. With the easing of restrictions it’s great to see that Diggerland is back and ready for visitors so here is a little bit about our experience.
