The Great Fruit Shoot Craft Session

With the boys being struck down with chicken pox over the whole of Easter we didn't really do much, so once they were better I was eager to do some fun things with them.
Something that wasn't going to need a lot of energy but something that was going to get them off the sofa and away from the TV.

We were sent an amazing craft kit from Robinson's Fruit Shoots containing everything we needed to have a space craft session.
The plan was to use our creations on an egg hunt, but they boys weren't very willing in doing an egg hunt.
(you know they're really sick when they refuse to have an Easter egg hunt!)


Along with all the arts and crafts we were sent some Fruit Shoots to enjoy whilst crafting.
The boys were over the moon with this as I don't buy them as often as they'd like me too.


Everyone was keen to get crafting, even Noah Mr Unsociable wanted to make some space pictures.

I decided to show them/wow them with my little alien made that I out of a foam egg and then after all being rather impressed they all wanted to make their own.

Oscar and Ru's both turned into red planets rather than aliens, and Noah's was pretty cool a mix between Saturn and an Alien.




The boys are all pretty rubbish at staying hydrated, but having the fruit shoots on the table and them being something they actually enjoy drinking they all made sure they finished their bottles pretty quickly.


Once all the juice was finished the boys decided they wanted to turn them into rockets.
We had a chat about how we could do that and then got down to it.
I cut up some coloured paper of their choice to make wings and a rocket tip and then they stuck them to their bottles.


Along with our rockets and egg aliens we made some alien pictures out of lolly pop sticks and googly eyes.



Noah and Rupert soon lost interest, Noah's Playstation was calling and Ru decided he wanted to nap. The twins however were keen to use absolutely everything in the Mr Maker Craft box.


So anything they could stick on their rockets they used and anything they could make sparkle on their pictures they did.

It was a bit of a glitter party in the end.



Since doing the space arts and crafts Alex has taken a real keen interest in learning all about the different planets and space.

The Little Kids First Big Book Of Space has now become our number one bedtime reading book.
He's also taken it into school for show and tell!


The boys really enjoyed learning all about space and making their own rockets, so a big Thank You Fruit Shoot for helping them figure out what their Thing is!


The Fruit Shoots we were sent were -

 2 Hydro and 2 original Fruit Shoots

NATURALLY FLAVOURED HYDRO

A naturally flavoured spring water drink, Hydro is irresistibly refreshing and tasty – with zero sugar and no artificial colours or flavourings. 
They come in three flavours -

Fruit Shoot
There’s real fruit in every drop of Fruit Shoot and each and every one is filled with multi-vitamins. Better still, we don’t add any sugar, artificial colours or flavourings at all.
There is a vast range of different flavours from Apple and blackcurrant to tropical, so something for everyones taste buds!
Both bottles have re-sealable cap so they can take it with them – and do their thing, wherever they are.

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…
