Hiii! I had seen Chalkola chalk markers on various accounts I follow over on Instagram, and thought they looked amazing. Such vibrant, beautiful colours! So I was over the moon when Chalkola contacted me to see if we would like to try out some of their products. I hope you enjoy my review of Chalkola chalk markers – here is what we thought 🙂
Helloooo! Stamping is such a super easy way of creating lovely crafts with little ones. And the best thing is you can often use materials you have lying round the house! So I thought I’d share a little round-up of colourful stamping activities for kids. Enjoy!
The twiglets are five! I still can hardly believe it really – where has the time gone?! At the moment we’re still in some sort of semi-lockdown limbo state, which meant no party this year. But we tried really hard to make sure the twigs still had a lovely birthday to remember 🙂
I wrote a little letter for my twins’ fifth birthday, so I thought I’d share it 🙂
Welcome back to another of my little crafty round-ups! As you probably know by now, when it comes to me and crafting with my kids, the focus is most definitely on SIMPLE and COLOURFUL! So I thought I’d share some fab easy under the sea craft ideas I’ve found 🙂
This week we went on a search for pretty wildflowers. A friend had posted some lovely photos on her Instagram of a field of those giant daisies (I forget what they’re called!) They looked so lovely and were quite near us so we decided to head there and check them out.
Have your kids seen the second Trolls film – Trolls World Tour – yet? We rented it on Amazon for a couple of days near the start of lockdown, and the twigs are OBSESSED! Their 5th birthday is coming up so of course we have got them some Trolls goodies. So I just thought I’d share a little round-up of some of the best Trolls World Tour gift ideas for kids that are out there at the moment. (Don’t worry – we did NOT buy all of these for the twiglets haha!!!)
The other day I took H out by himself – just the two of us. And it was so lovely, it got me thinking. Spending one on one time with our twins has always been something we’ve struggled with. There are so many reasons why it only seems to ever happen very rarely. But it’s so nice when it does happen, and I also think it’s really important for children, particularly siblings and twins or multiples. So we’re determined to make sure one on one time with our twins happens more often!
This week has been another fairly uneventful week really. Just more of the same, pretty much. More trying (and basically failing) to muster up some motivation for delivering home learning. More staying at home, mostly. So visiting Painshill Park for Father’s Day today was quite a nice welcome break from the norm and we had a really lovely day 🙂
We’ve been doing a LOT of crafting lately, what with most of our time being spent at home. You may well know by now that crafting does not come very naturally to me! So I am always in search of ways to make crafting with the twiglets easier. Therefore I was thrilled when toucanBox got in touch and offered to send us one of their readymade craft kits to try. So here is my toucanBox craft kit review 🙂
This week I’ve totally had enough of lockdown. To be fair, I’m not even sure if we’re really in lockdown anymore, are we? I suppose we’re in a sort of limbo, while the lockdown is gradually being lifted. But anyway, as much as there have been some really lovely things about lockdown, it has been a flipping long time now hasn’t it?!
