On a week where L had been focusing on The Three Little Pigs at school and we had read, watched and listened to various bland and boring versions of the story seemingly thousands of times we needed a bit more excitement in our topic. Thankfully we discovered Readmio, or should I say, Readmio discovered us and we were enamoured.Continue reading Readmio – Review
I’m literally trying to write this review and help my one son with his school work for the day. It isn’t going well. It has taken nearly 15 minutes for me to get to this point whilst busy trying to explain a contraction. I didn’t know what a contraction was until this morning, well at least I didn’t know the name for one, look at me using contractions!
The thing is I’m fed up getting up at 5am so I can write in peace, doing school work all day, Monday to Friday then heading off to my day job all weekend. I am super lucky that I only have to worry about one child’s education and luckier still that my employer has let me my normal 4 days of mid week hours into the weekend. I am lucky and I know that. It doesn’t change the fact that I am tired, so very tired.Continue reading Making Home Learning Fun with Busy Things
As you know I’ve been on a quest to find some different ways to make sure Halloween stays fun this year.
I’ve found balloons and cakes and bugs and crafts. I’ve even found mini breaks away and experience days. Halloween is sure to be fun this year and different in many ways. I’m happy that L won’t miss out just because he can’t go trick or treating with all his friends like he wants.Continue reading Our Halloween 2020
Tomorrow (9th October) sees the launch of the new Ben 10 Power Trip video game and we’ve been lucky enough to have had a few days in advance to see what it’s all about. I’ve popped the game trailer below, so you can see what it’s all about.Continue reading Ben 10 Power Trip – Video Game Review
Last week we received the Pokémon Carry Case Playset to review. L loves Pikachu and know sof Pokémon, but has never watched the cartoons on TV or played the games. It’s more just something he’s picked up on school, but I thought this great set could change things.Continue reading Pokémon Carry Case Playset
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!Continue reading Show and Tell with Tiny Pop
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.Continue reading Playmobil Dinos – Review
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.Continue reading Summer Holidays at Roarr!
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.Continue reading Diggerland Kent
We have been lucky enough to have been sent a lovely box of the new Season 8 Roblox toys from Jazwares so that we can review them.
L is a big fan of Roblox and though he doesn’t play the game much, mainly because I don’t understand it, I’m rubbish at these things, he really likes watching Roblox videos and playing with the toys.Continue reading New Roblox Season 8 Toys
