Orchard Toys Jungle Heads & Tails Review

This year Erin has really gotten into playing games this year and we are lucky to have a nice collection from Orchard Toys already. We recently received the new Jungle Heads & Tails game, which is aimed at children from 18 months to roughly 3 years old. On the day the game arrived, Erin spied it on my desk and wanted to play immediately. Jungle Heads & Tail is a lovely simple game. The box comes with 24 really chunky and colourful cards which show either the head or ‘tail’ part of a jungle animal. You also get a bit

5 Favourite Toys Of A 2 Year Old

Erin will be turning 3 in January which isn’t very far away at all and over the past year the way that she plays has really changed. She seems to have gone from really basic toys to being really imaginative in the blink of an eye so I thought I would write about what some of her favourite toys have been since she turned 2. Peppa Pig Kitchen My Mum got this for Erin from Morrisons I think in the Black Friday sale in 2017 and it ended up being a Christmas present. At the time, it was only £20

Mess Free Creativity With Little Brian Paint Sticks

Since Erin started nursery back in January she very quickly found a love for anything creative and the messier, the better. I, on the other hand, have a bit of a thing about how much mess there is. It’s not that particularly mind the mess and cleaning it all up afterwards, it’s more when things like paints or play-doh get mixed together and ruined. Because of this, I think I tend to put off doing too many crafty activities with Erin which really, is a shame because I know she enjoys it so much. So, when we were sent a

Preparing For Nappy Free Nights With B-Sensible

Erin has been potty trained for a good few months and she’s at the stage where she is 99% free from any accidents now. However, she is still wearing nappies at night time as it’s quite unpredictable whether she will wake up dry or not. We have been thinking about preparing for nappy free nights for a little while now and will be taking steps to achieve this soon such as cutting down milk before bed. One thing that I was a bit worried about though was getting a mattress protector. I don’t know why but a lot of what

Why We Won’t Be Raising Erin To Believe In Santa

Erin was born on New Year’s Day so her birthday is only a week after Christmas. Erin’s first Christmas meant that she was nearly 1 and really didn’t understand anything about it so at this point, we hadn’t really made up our minds about what we were going to tell her. Now that she’s nearly 3 and going to nursery with other children, we have had to make a decision. Although I was brought up to believe in Santa I think I realised quite early on that he wasn’t real.

Afternoon Tea And Pamper Treat For Two With Red Letter Days

Being someone who is self-employed and works from home means having very little ‘me’ time. Don’t get me wrong, I have days where Erin is at nursery and John is at work so I have the house to myself but then I have work and cleaning to do. I have my nails done for special occasions only like going on holiday and I think I’ve had my hair done 2-3 times since Erin was born nearly 3 years ago. So, when Red Letter Days got in touch to see if I would like to test out one of their experiences,

Choosing Morocco As A Family Holiday Destination

John and I love to travel and while we haven’t been to the most adventurous destinations on offer yet, we do want Erin to grow up discovering new and exciting places with us. When it comes to booking holidays it can be all too easy to go for an easy option or to pick somewhere that’s well-known for being popular for families to travel to. However, there are loads of great places that you may not have thought of and one of them is Morocco which is in North Africa. The flight time is only around 4 hours from the
