Brecon Careg & Cadw Team Up with Kids Go Free Vouchers!

We’re so lucky in Wales that we have so many places of interest in close proximity to our homes. From castles and ruins, to museums and parks, I love a good day out and if it’s free then even better! This half term we’ve really been making the  most of the good weather and getting outdoors as much as possible. My girls love going to the local park then walking back home by the stream so they can play poo sticks! I think it’s so important to get kids outdoors rather than have the cooped up inside in front of… [Read More]

How to make paper mache masks

I’ve really enjoyed the summer holidays this year. I feel like we’ve done so much, yet we haven’t spent a fortune. With trips to the park, play dates with friends and fun in the garden, we really have had such a great summer holiday. One of the things that our five year old twin girls really wanted to do was to make masks. We decided to use paper mache for some added fun and mess! If you’d like to make your own masks, all you need is some PVA glue, a jug of water, a balloon, a newspaper, a few… [Read More]

Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station Review: Video Special

Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station is a toy like no other I’ve come across before. Aimed at children over six years old, this product lets children make their own bracelets, necklaces, nail art and figures. Unlike other jewellery making toys available on the market, the difference with Cutie Stix is that children actually get to make the ‘beads’ themselves. This proved to be hours of fun for our five year old twins. Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station costs just £29.99 and is available to buy online here. Cutie Stix are the perfect way for children to make accessories… [Read More]

World Poetry Day with Viking

Today is World Poetry Day and I’ve teamed up with Viking to share with you the importance of writing.
