Struggling To Keep Your Kids Busy This Summer?

We’ve all been there, but when you are looking for something both original and exciting to do with your children over the summer it can be extremely frustrating. 
No matter what you might have tried before, you probably want to try and introduce your children to something brand new - and that is where it can get difficult. 

Something that always works well is to make it vaguely educational, even if only a little. This means that you are happy as the parent, and they are happy at having found something new to do with the summer holidays. 
Let’s have a look at a few examples of the kind of activity you can carry out which suits these particular parameters.

Crafts

If you think your children have something of a creative streak, you might want to try and bring it out and make the most of ity possible. 
This is a great thing to do at any time of year, summer included, and it will also mean that you are encouraging in your vkids something which can see them through the rest of their life. If you haven't done this before, think about what kind of art or craft your children are likely to enjoy. Whatever you think that is, you are bound to find something that works, and it is well worth doing. To make it more effective, consider getting involved yourself - this is something you could even just do at home if you wanted to, it’s that easy to get into.




Sports

Summer is the ideal time for getting your kids into sport, but one of the hardest decisions here is which sport to get them into. If you are bored of the old favorites, why not think about trying something new with the kids? 
You could take them on some kids golf lessons, for example, or you could try and get them into a game like cricket or tennis. It really doesn’t matter what the sport is, as long as you think it is something they will be able to enjoy and which you can easily get them into in your local area. Make sure you are happy with it, too - some sports might be too dangerous for kids of a certain age or disposition.
If you successfully get your children into a sport, you will probably more likely consider it a summer well spent, so this is definitely worth thinking about.




Classes

It might be that you want to make the most of the holiday by continuing the education - albeit in an extra-curricular sense.
This is not the ideal option for all children, but for some it just might be. 
If you think your child has a particular gift for something or other, then there is nothing wrong with encouraging them to learn more about that subject over the summer holidays. 
Just make sure that they genuinely want to do it and that they do not feel as though they are pushed into it in any sense.

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!

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…
