What the Kids…

Here’s where you’ll find posts for what the kids did… playing, wearing, doing, and more!

What the Kids Love: Club Petz Backpacks

For my two kids there is something incredibly exciting about having anything matching, I expect they’ll grow out of it when they’re a 13 year old girl and a 12 year old boy but for now I am embracing it and letting them be as matchy matchy as they want! The latest matching thing to get them excited is pretty…

What the Kids Read: Mibo Animal Board Books

We reviewed the gorgeous Hardback (or ‘for best’ as Athena calls them) Mibo Books a while ago, and although we do read them quite often we have to be so careful as Arlo is still in the destructive phase and I don’t want anything to happen to the ‘best’ books! But now he can look at the Lions, Polar Bears…

Toys: Leapfrog Count Along Till

I am always amazed when kids use their imagination, it’s just so special to see. They’re like sponges soaking things up and regurgitating them in play. Ever since Athena was really small she’d pretend she was an ice cream seller underneath the climbing frame at the local park where there’s a little ledge. She’d bellow “Ice creammmmmmm anyoney want some…

Toys: Thomas & Friends Nightlight Toy

Arlo loves trains, still calling them ‘choochoos’ rather than trains, although he can say train of course! We were lucky enough to go and see the premier of the latest Thomas film ‘The Great Race’ last year, went to Thomas Land at Drayton Manor on little holiday and have got lots of Thomas  & Friends related toys and books too…

Shimmer & Shine Genie Toys

Athena hosted her first real playdate this week, inviting one her best preschool friends home after school. She’s had friends over before of course but they were always friends of the family and with their parents too. As well as taking them to the shop and letting them choose a little treat on the way home I also put together…

Exploring imagination with Moana

A couple of weeks ago we finally watched Moana. I think it is a beautiful film and Athena loved it too. I love that the film has a strong female role model; Moana is the daughter of a Polynesian tribe Chief, and is chosen by the ocean to find the lost heart of a goddess Te Feti, the islanders are…

Twinning is Winning

Athena loves shoes, and wellies even more so. Those of you who have followed me on instagram might remember her sporting a fetching pair of yellow wellies last year, but sadly due to the ever-growing nature of toddler feet they’re far too small now! But don’t worry, they fit Arlo now! Crocs sprung to the rescue though and sent her…

What the kids read at Christmas

I’ve got a nice little collection of christmassy books for the kids, enough to fill the little bookcase which was a surprise when I had a sort through and got them all out! We’ve been reading one or two before bed each nice for the last few weeks and three seem to be getting picked more than the others. The…
