Start the school day the SKIPPY® Peanut Butter way

American style SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is really popular in our house and I loved it when I was challenged me to make a super fun breakfast for the kiddies before school. Ensuring the kiddies go to school with a full tummy is important to me and getting healthy foods in is a great bonus. It’s always fun to get creative at mealtimes, especially breakfast which is always a rush in our house.  VIEW the POST

Fun bonding activities for the whole family to enjoy

Fun bonding activities for the whole family to enjoy

Spending time with family can be very challenging especially in our busy modern world. If you are struggling to do so, you and your family should designate a specific family time at least once during the week to spend time together and enjoy each other’s company. The best way to bond with family is to do activities that everyone will enjoy and outings to cool places where you can learn and have fun. We have had lots of fun over lockdown and are enjoying new bonding activities that we will continue to do together. VIEW the POST

Time School: We Will Honour Them book review

I have been trying to read a lot more this year, I think I have read more books since January than I have in the past 5 years. I forgot how much I love to read, I could sit and read for hours when I get into a good book. I remember a few months back I had nearly finished the book and so I kept going, it was 2am before I put the book down. Today I am honoured to share an excerpt and competition to win a copy of Time School: We Will Honour Them. The new book by Nikki Young.

How to help your kids get better sleep

How to help your kids get better sleep

Getting your little ones to sleep can be a struggle every night when it comes to bed time. Whether they have too much energy in them to sleep, the room is too light or they just don’t have a good daily routine having your kid fight the need for sleep can be stressful and annoying. One of my silver linings of Lockdown is the time to review things as a family. Understanding how much sleep your kids needs is also important, finding out can be a great place to start.

Fun games to play at home during lockdown

We love playing fun games as a family, albeit we have a little man that doesn’t like to lose, we have been trying new games and old games together. Like Scrabble, something Daddy and I used to play when we were younger. I remember having game afternoons, on a Sunday, with my siblings and Mum growing up. We liked Mouse Trap! Great game. Some of these games were meant to be travelling with us to Dubai. I stocked up on these little games as they are the perfect size to have in a backpack. I knew we would have long waits at the airport, the plane journey was long and I thought they would be fun to play with our friends when we got to Dubai. As we didn’t go, they actually still came in very handy as we have been playing them throughout lockdown. They are great family fun…

How to toddler proof your garden

How to toddler proof your garden

We want our children to play outside and reap all the scientifically proven benefits that spending time in a garden can bring. Studies have shown that patients in hospitals who have a view of nature outside their window tend to recover faster than those without. Although having a little explorer or two can pose a challenge as we want to ensure that they are always safe. It seems so long since I had a toddler roaming around, but I thought these toddler proof tips were useful. VIEW the POST
