Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about Gin Night. This hallowed occasion is something I look forward to immensely and doesn’t happen as frequently as I’d wish.
I don’t have to pack a lunch for L yet, he gets free school meals because he’s still little. So when it came to sending him off to Barracudas Activity Day Camps over Easter I was thrown!
He needed enough for a full day, it needed to be tasty, filling and ok out of the fridge. Two snacks, at least, plus lunch. I dropped him off at 9am and didn’t have to pick him up until 4.30pm. That’s a lot of time and a lot of food. Not even taking into account all the running around they would be doing.
Inspiring young artists offered chance of a lifetime
Is your child’s imagination constantly running away with them? Are they always drawing on any scrap of paper they can find? After receiving 1,000+ amazing entries and over 20,000 votes last year, the competition that gives budding young artists a chance to let their creativity shine is now open for 2019. This summer, the BIC® KIDS Young Artist Award is giving proud parents across the UK and Republic of Ireland the opportunity to see their child’s drawings graduate from the fridge door to billboards!
We have tried to make L’s room as comfortable and calm as possible, for a good night sleep. But we also made sure he put his own mark on it, picking paint colours, carpet and bedding. He adores his bed and we climb up there to read every night but he wanted it to be more like a sofa, for us and for him, during reading time. So when we saw the Kally Kids Pillow I knew it would perfectly. What I didn’t appreciate were the other benefits it would bring.
L loves dinosaurs and he loves Zuru Smashers, so he was super happy when they released their third series of smashers that were all dino themed. You can only imagine his joy when he received a HUGE Dino Smasher Egg. The Dino Epic Egg to be precise.
Like most kids L loves Slime, it’s squishy, oozy and makes gross sounds when you push it back into a tub! What’s not to love? We’ve got a great set at home from So Slime DIY to easily make slime ourselves and it’s a quick and easy activity to while away a bit of time. When we found they not made slime that changes colour we were super excited to try it.
Disclosure – We have been gifted a fabulous box of Toy Story 4 goodies from shopDisney to celebrate Toy Story 4 hitting the cinemas. All thoughts, opinions and images are my own.
I’m not sure I even know where to start with this. The first Toy Story was released in 1995 when I was 11 years old. It’s magic is something I have grown up with and now with Toy Story 4 soon hitting the cinema screens I am getting ready to share the excitement with L.
