Giveaway (Collaborative Post)¦ Whether it’s GCSEs, A Levels or SATs, end of year exams are always stressful for children. It’s important to make sure that they get enough sleep, food and drink in the run up to exams. Try to make sure they don’t study so much that they burn themselves either. Gently remind them that frequent breaks are healthy and actually help the brain to retain more. Perhaps you could buy treats for them to snack on for a boost in these breaks. Another little boost could be some new stationery!
Excitement is mounting about the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing this weekend. We know who our semi-finalists are, and now we know what dances they’ll do to what music. The competition is close and we can only guess who will be victoriously holding that glitterball trophy on Saturday 15th December. Fortunately, once the final sequinned dress has left the stage at the grand final, the fun can still continue! The Strictly Come Dancing Board Game is a great game to play with all the family over Christmas to relinquish your post-Strictly blues.
I’ve been aware of Wilberry’s soft toys for some time now, as they sell them in a shop called Francis Iles which is local to me and is featured in my Kent Christmas shopping guide. These toys are made using beautiful materials and look and feel good quality. However, they are really affordable prices. Designed and produced by The Puppet Company, a new range called Wilberry Dancers has recently been released.
I recently went to the Blog On Toys conference in Manchester. One of the biggest highlights for me was that Nintendo were there with Labo. If you’re not aware of it already, cardboard and technology combine for customisable fun with Labo and Nintendo Switch. Let me show you how awesome it is – and as a bonus, Nintendo have kindly provided me with a Labo Variety Kit and Customisation Set to giveaway!
Wow, I can hardly believe that September is here! It’s a busy month for us with hubby’s birthday, Autumn’s 2nd birthday and an anniversary. We’re also going to be Godparents later this month and I have a blogging conference to attend. Everything is beginning to feel very autumnal now – and of course the kids are back to school! We’ve been testing out some of Spearmark’s back to school range, including a Locksy Ultraclip lunch box. Here I explain more and give you the chance to win some of the range!
