Convincing the kids to throw out old toys

Convincing the kids to throw out old toys

There will come a time in the year, most likely after Christmas, where you will want to start thinking about having a clear out at home. We did this last weekend and I asked the children to choose some fabulous toys to take to charity, to help make another child's Christmas a happy one. You will want to get rid of your old possessions and pieces of furniture, ready to make room for all the new things you received during the festive season. However, when it comes to clearing out your home, you will also want to get the kids involved and get rid of their old toys.VIEW the POST

Mindful Monsters encouraging the little ones to be in the present #MindfulMonsters

Mindful Monsters encouraging the little ones to be in the present #MindfulMonsters

A little bit of "soft" goes a long way…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I was told that Asda are running a campaign at the moment which supports the charity “Tommy’s” which are a fantastic charity who are funding research into stillbirth, miscarraige and premature babies. So whilst I am rushing to buy my fabric conditioner I got to help support such a great charity too. It made me reflect back on when I was pregnant with both of my little ones, the rush to grab our Persil and Comfort and to make sure all the little clothing items were sparkly clean and terrifically soft. My children are 3 and 2 now, but I still worry about how soft the towels are and how clean their nursery clothes are – so many bugs and illnesses need to be killed off when they get home. I worry no…
