Collaborative Post It’s accepted that pretty much everybody needs to get themselves a car or some sort of vehicle nowadays.

Do you ever wonder what would happen if you could hop across to an parallel universe? I often think about how things might be in an alternate dimension. It’s fun to think about the things I might do without the consequences of them going against me in my ‘real life’.

Gifted Autumn and I really enjoy sensory play. Of course, it’s great for her development too. Amongst other things, it helps to develop fine motor skills and aid creativity. We recently tried out Gelli Baff, Slime Baff and Slime Play from Zimpli Kids. View Post
