Comfortable Yet Stylish Children’s Clothing With Sense Organics

Quality Is Key With Children’s Clothing

If there’s one thing that I feel strongly about when it comes to clothing for our children it is ensuring that the clothes which they wear are high quality. Kids clothing needs to be hard-wearing and able to withstand the test of time, being regularly washed and occasionally taking a quick spin in the tumble dryer when needs must.

E was recently sent two rather beautiful pieces of clothing (a reversible, long-sleeved top and a pair of pants) from Sense Organics to wear, share and review.

Making Less Mess At Meal Times With The Beach Huts Wipe Easy TableCloth

Since having children I have found that there are a number of essential items which I can no longer live without. How I ever survived before children without carrying wet wipes I will never know. How we ever ate from a table without some form of protective cloth or covering is also questionable.

Following having our first-born I very quickly realised that meal times were akin to painting in that they were equally as messy. I quickly purchased a tablecloth to protect the table during meal times and to add a smidgen of colour to our rather dated kitchen.

We have used a tablecloth ever since to keep the table permanently protected as our children not only eat at the table but they also enjoy colouring carrying out various creative and rather messy activities such as painting, using play dough, using clay, baking and colouring.…

Thinking On Your Feet With The 5 Second Rule Junior Board Game

Each Sunday we make time to sit down together as a family and to either watch a movie or to play a board game. Rather than moping over the weekend coming to a close, we try to distract ourselves from the week ahead with some rest and relaxation as a family.

Playing board games is hugely beneficial to all involved, especially children. Board games can teach children a vast array of both simple and complex life skills including:

Learning to take turns Building patience and understanding of others Learning how to accept loss Building concentration skills Learning how to read others facial expressions and body language Building tactical thinking skills Learning how to deal with competition Exercising and keeping the brain active How to deal with pressure and time limits Learning how to work effectively as a team member The 5 Second Rule Junior Edition Board Game

We were recently sent the ‘5 Second Rule Junior Board Game‘ to play and to review.…
