Glimmies, It’s A Kind Of Magic!

The Magic Of Play

We all love to have a little bit of magic in our lives, this especially applies to children as they are yet to fully understand the World in which they live and the concepts of Science.

To actually witness magic in the making is somewhat of a thrill. I myself love to watch a good magic trick and since having children have learnt how to perform a few of my own tricks to stun and amaze my little ones.

As a child light can be a fairly magical concept, as we wake each morning the sun rises and as we settle down to sleep the sun sets making way for the moon to cast its subtle glow.…

Making Math’s Memorable With MathsRockx

Our son J is quite talented at Maths but seems to find memorising information, particularly his Times Tables fairly difficult.

I was therefore rather pleased when were recently asked to review the MathsRockx App, a program specifically designed to help children revise and to learn their Times Tables through combining Music and Maths.

The MathsRockx App

Music is massively beneficial to many aspects of children’s learning, the MathsRockx app uses Music to help trigger memories and to learn specific information. By combining Music, Maths and visual cues, the MathsRockx App offers children a stimulating platform to recall mathematical information.

Much like we often find ourselves singing along to those catchy tunes on the radio, children are able to absorb the information through listening and singing along to the app and then over time will learn their Times Tables much like they would learn a song.…

The Finding Dory Nemo And Friends AquaBeads Set Review

I Am An AquaBeader!

I am very pleased to tell you that I was recently chosen to be a part of the ‘Aquabeaders’ online group. As part of this I will be sharing and promoting a wide range of Aquabeads sets and products with you, my wonderful readers.

What Are Aquabeads?

Aquabeads are small, coloured beads which when sprayed with water become sticky and can mould together to create a 2D design. There are a range of similar products including Hama Beads and Hot Beads also on the market but they require a hot iron to bond the beads together and are therefore far less suitable for young children.…

Happy #UnBoxing Day With Num-Noms

We were recently asked to take part in the Num-Noms #UnboxingDay campaign which of course we agreed to and were then very kindly sent the latest packs from Series 3.1 and the all new Series 1 Lights edition Num-Noms to unwrap and review.

To make the whole experience a little more authentic I decided to send the Num-Noms Santa’s way to be wrapped and opened on the big day along with E’s other parcels. E was rather delighted upon opening her Num-Noms as you will see in the video below.


The Num-Noms UnBoxing Day Campaign

Whilst today has been ridiculously busy with it being Boxing Day (aka the almighty tidy up) we somehow managed to find the time to fit in a little filming to celebrate the #Unboxing Day campaign.…

The Benefits Of Board Games – What A Performance!

The Benefits Of Board Games

We have a cupboard in the living room filled to the rafters with board games, they are such a simple yet effective way to spend time together as a family. Our family has a busy schedule with work, school, nursery and a whole host of extra curricular activities, I often feel that there is little time for us to get together and relax, chat, giggle, and simply enjoy being a family.

Board games are a fantastic tool for the promotion of communication, providing a relaxing atmosphere to laugh, share stories and to let off some steam.…
