Half Term Boredom Busters With Clementoni Toys

It only feels like yesterday that the long 6/7 weeks of the summer holidays were over and the kids were finally going back to school and my sanity was about to return.

Now October Half Term is just around the corner and I have only just found out that the boys are off for TWO WEEKS!!!!
Seriously when did that become a thing?

October isn't known for its beautiful weather so I thought I would share a couple of toys that could prevent the kiddies becoming bored.

First ones are for the mini people;

Football mad kids?
Mine are and this has gone down a treat, I've even spotted Noah practising his goal shooting.

Ru was very taken with this and the moment he saw it came with a ball it turned into his new favourite thing.
He's got a great kick on him, but still needs a bit of practise getting it into the goal, the twins have been helping him, by showing him how they do it
This is one of the only toys they have that they actually share nicely!

Some of the key features of the World Cup Winner are;

  • An educational speaking toy that teaches the first letters, numbers from 1 to 5, shapes and colours, how to count and lots of new words,
  • Music mode has lots of amusing songs as well as fun sounds and light effect.
  • Teaches English and Spanish.

Another one for the Little people is the Nursery Rhyme Farm Pad which is suitable from 24 months.

Ru isn't a big talker but he loves singing along to nursery rhymes.
He does usually play them on the iPad but with this farm pad its much more interactive and he loves that he can press the different animals and hear the different sounds they make.
He never really used to be able to tell you what animal belonged to what noise but he's slowly getting there and with the Farm Pad I can see that happening.
This keeps him quite for a good while, this is perfect for calming down time.

Now onto those bigger children who are more harder to please!
If Noah could play on his PlayStation all day every day he would, and he really gets annoyed when I tell him he has to do other things or his brain will rot!
When presenting him with other things to do, normally he will grunt at me and go off in a huff.
Unless its something really cool, just like the Mechanic Laboratory .
As soon as he saw this his face lit up!

As much as Noah pretends he hates making things and being creative, he actually really enjoys it once he gets stuck in.

He is following the instructions stage by stage, and is looking forward to the end result!
Keep an eye on my Instagram to see the end result!

This Mechanic Laboratory will keep him busy all half term, as you can make more than 50 buildings of increasing complexity, you can build helicopters, motorized cranes, cars with electric motors.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Intuition razors are the first 3-in-1 razors to lather, shave and moisturise in one easy step, giving your skin that naturally healthy glow. Simple and convenient, it's the perfect razor for busy women and mums on the go. Save time and money on s…

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
