Going To The Dark Side With The Aquabeads Star Wars Kylo Ren & Stormtrooper Set

Both of my boys (both J and the hubby) are rather partial to anything Sci-Fi based, J was therefore rather pleased when we were recently sent the Aquabeads Star Wars Kylo Ren & Stormtrooper Set to put to the test and to review.

What Are Aquabeads?

For those of you that aren’t aware, Aquabeads are small, coloured beads which can be placed upon a crafting board and when sprayed with water stick together to create a range of 2D designs. There are a wide range of similar products also available on the market but most of these require either a hot iron to bond the beads or simply fall apart after use.… Read more from this post

Keeping It Together With Mums Office Diaries

I am one of those Mum’s that cannot cope without my diary close to hand. I run by a schedule and have endless lists for this, that and the other all of which are neatly stored within my diary so that I can keep on top of the delicate juggling act that is parenting.

I’m One Of ‘Those Mothers…’

People often comment on how organised I am and without blowing my own trumpet I will admit that I am often that parent… You know the annoying Mother that seems to know when and where everything is happening. I have many a time been asked “What’s your secret Rach?… Read more from this post

National Science Week With The Project MC2 H2O Nail Science Lab Kit

Did you know it was National Science Week this week? As part of the celebrations we were very kindly asked to join forces with ‘Project Mc2’ and carry out some experiments of our own with the ‘Project MC2 H2O Nail Science Lab Kit‘.

Our little lady may only be three-years of age but she already takes great pleasure in getting glammed up whether it’s having her hair styled, playing with her Mummy’s makeup or painting her nails. She was therefore delighted when we received the ‘Project MC2 H2O Nail Science Lab Kit’ to put to the test.

Project Mc2

Project MC2 (pronounced ‘Project MC-Squared) is an online (Netflix) American TV series set in the fictitious city of Maywood Glen, California.… Read more from this post

Tech For Tots With Kidoland

Like most children these days my kids love their tablets and I’m not referring to the daily dosage of vitamin supplements that I sneak into their food.

Tablet Time

Whilst I don’t mind the kids using the IPads for educational and entertainment purposes I certainly have some strict rules and regulations when it comes to limiting their time and the content on their tablets. I keep a very close eye on what the kids are playing, viewing and using on their tablets as I am more than aware of the dangers of technology these days.

Thankfully I’ve found that there in fact are a range of apps which tick the parental boxes and are actually able to offer our children some form of educational entertainment which is a hole lot better than the endless hours of random surprise eggs and other youtube clips that kids seem to binge-watch these days.… Read more from this post

My Little Helper And The Casdon Hetty Mop And Bucket Set

As you already know I’m a bit of a OCD freak especially when it comes to cleaning the house. I have a daily routine which I try to get out of the way whilst E is at Nursery but as this isn’t always the case, there are times when the children are asked to be patient whilst Mummy here runs around trying to get things sorted and shiny-clean so that we can get on with our day.

E often tries to get involved with the cleaning but as she is still a little small to be pushing around a heavy hoover or sweating over a steam mop, I go for the safer option and usually hand her a damp cloth and ask her to wipe the surfaces instead.… Read more from this post

Pilot Ollie & Pilot Polly’s Amazing Adventures Review

Our household has always enjoyed reading books, reading is part of our daily routine and we have an extensive collection of books which the children enjoy.

I am particularly keen on reading books which provide educational information to the children through an informal and enjoyable format. Books which offer the children support and understanding of the World in which they live are hugely beneficial not only for them but for us as parents.

Anything which can offer a little guidance and support here and there for children certainly gets my thumbs up, this is certainly the case for three travel based books which we were recently sent to read and review.… Read more from this post
