Studio creator video maker kit – a review

September 18, 2020 admin 0

#gifted A couple of weeks ago we were very kindly sent the Studio Creator video maker kit to try out. Now normally we are sent things that either excite me, like books, beauty products or coffee or items that excite the kids like games, toys and chocolate but the studio creator perked the interest of both the boys and I and I have a feeling I am going to have to either share this one […]

Through others' eyes

Through Others’ Eyes by Brainstorm Toys

June 7, 2020 admin 0

We love nothing more than a good games night in this house and often try out new board games on the weekends but since lockdown I have been trying to incorporate a few more educational based games to help instil a bit of learning along side the fun for the kids. This week we tried out Through Others’ Eyes by Brainstorm Toys. Through Others’ Eyes is aimed at children over 6, although personally I think […]

What unprecedented weather we are having this year! I have no idea if it is simply coincidental or if the changes forced upon the world by lockdown have had some sort of impact on our weather but I am certainty not complaining and I am most definitely trying to make the most of all this sunshine whilst it lasts. One of the ways we have been enjoying the sun is by playing in the paddling […]

How to teach science with John Adams

April 29, 2020 admin 0

Lock down has turned most parents into stop gap teachers, myself included, with some subjects being easier to navigate than others. For me science is a tricky one, it’s not my strong point and I struggle to make it fun without the help of pre planned lessons, equipment or games, so when John Adams offered to send me two science kits I was more than grateful as it meant I could take a break from […]

Lock down is tough. Home schooling is even tougher. But I am forever grateful that during this time we have both a garden and a village that we can use during the day for exercise and I really feel for those that have limited outdoor space they can’t easily access at the moment.  I am feeling even more grateful for the work opportunities that I am still getting, including  the one we have been working […]

This did however mean that when we decorated her nursery we had to opt for neutral colours and so we chose grey and orange, or grey and fox print wall paper anyway. We already had the wooden wardrobe and chest of draws from when it […]
