Drumond Park Dig In and Rapidough Giveaway

To celebrate Easter, we’ve got together with Drumond Park to offer one lucky winner the chance to win this fun prize pair of Dig In! and Rapidough games to enjoy with their family. We have both of these games, and you can click to read our reviews of both within this blog post

Dig In!

(rrp £19.99, age 8-99!)

This is a fabulously easy, but deceptively challenging and frantically fun game, suitable for all ages, from about 8 upwards – and perfect for Easter holiday gatherings and get-togethers! In this ridiculously simple game up to four players at a time dig into a bowl of colourful everyday items to find the six objects pictured on their card. Each card has pictures of six very recognisable items – an ice cream, dog, plane, rabbit, boat, scissors, starfish, teddy etc. – on it; each one a particular colour. Using both hands you have just 15 seconds to rummage through the contents of the bowl and find all of your objects before the timer goes off!

Mummy Conversations with Canesten, and Win £100 Amazon Voucher

As a parent, I believe it’s important to be open with your kids whatever the topic. I’ve always strived to have a close relationship with my children where they feel comfortable to come to me with any worries or questions they have about any situation. I’d much rather that, than see them suffering in silence and being unsure where to turn to help.

I’ve always been a boy mum until now, but within the next week I’m due to have our first little girl so I’ll be entering into the world of mother-daughter relationships, which I’m sure brings lots of new joys and challenges!

With girls in particular, there are lots of personal issues that might need Mum’s help and advice, including intimate health. Canesten® believes that if you feel more comfortable with your own body you are more likely to reach your full potential. It’s always a parent’s desire to support their children to reach their full potential and help them become confident and educated individuals, feeling in control in all sorts of situations, and this should extend to intimate health too. This is why Canesten® wants to empower women to feel more comfortable, also when they discuss intimate health, including issues like thrush, with their children.

WILF Books Review & Giveaway

WILF Books are a new books subscription box, which carefully tailors it’s contents to your child. Their mission is to get the perfect books to each child, and as well as sending out suitable books they also offer to redistribute any unwanted books to other children to make sure every book goes to a home where it will be loved and read.

I was interested in trying out the boxes, so WILF books sent us across a couple of boxes – one for my eldest Z who is 8 and half years old, and one for my younger two boys T and R who are 5 and half, and almost seven. They can also send picture books for younger children, so the boxes are suitable for any age as they put them together specially for your child. You can even let them know your child’s interests and give them specific ideas to make sure that they have all the info they need to pick the perfect books!

The WILF Books Boxes

Each box contains a minimum of three books, and some boxes will contain more books. These are the books we got in our boxes. I was really happy with the selections in both of them.
