The girls had a lot of fun with the Mega Loop Kit and spent ages trying to make the biggest bubbles. We are waiting for the sun to come out so we can take the kit to the park too! I’m sure the girls will have plenty of fun as will any other children there.

Blowing big bubbles

You can create all kinds of bubble magic with this special solution and there is more than enough for a few sessions of bubble making. If you do run out, you can buy more on Amazon easily! It isn’t recommended to use this kit on a slippery surface however we couldn’t help but try out on our landing as there was more space. Hopefully the weather improves soon and we can set up at the park for hours of bubble fun!

I got carried away myself joining in making big bubbles along with the girls and know everyone will enjoy this kit. The only issue we found was that we enjoyed ourselves so much I almost forgot to take ANY photos! Check out the Uncle Bubble Video below though.

Our Thoughts

Honestly, we love the Herodrive vehicles, the girls have been playing with them non-stop. The Batman Police Car is so much fun with the Batman noises! The Herodrive cars really are super speedy. They are perfect for high-speed chases through the flat. Personally, I think these would make a fab alternative to chocolate this Easter and the perfect gift for any little one. Izzy says the herodrive vehicles are so cool and she loves them, she call the speed squad mini Batman car, Baby Batman and the Batman Police Car, big Batman.

#MakeChristmasBearable With Teddy Mountain UK

I’ve been sharing the #MakeChristmasBearable campaign by Teddy Mountain UK over my social media recently. They are running a daily giveaway until 25th December. Each day someone who has been nominated will be picked to win their own Bear kit. The idea is to nominate someone who deserves to win a bear, perhaps they’ve had a tough year or just generally struggling and feeling low. With your nominations, you can help  #MakeChristmasBearable this year. 

#MakeChristmasBearable Campaign

#MakeChristmasBearable

Each day you can nominate someone you feel deserves to win a Teddy Mountain Bear. Simply comment on any of their social media platforms with who and why you think they deserve to win. The winner is announced via Facebook Live videos on their page each evening. I think this is an absolutely lovely campaign. I know many people who most definitely deserve to win and would love their own bear. Because of this, I  would like to help raise as much awareness about the #MakeChristmasBearable campaign.

A New Purple Friend

Amethyst the Gumdrop Pony

As I have been helping share the campaign Teddy Mountain UK kindly sent me a gorgeous new friend, their Gumdrop Pony. I was overwhelmed by their kindness and thought I’d use my new friend to help spread the campaign so others feel that too. I ran a few polls on Twitter to give my new friend a name. After a day of polls we finally named her Amethyst which I love!

Naming Poll

Teddy Mountain UK

Teddy Mountain UK have a huge range of fantastic bear kits to make yourself at home. These kits are fab and I know lots of smiles will appear due to their campaign. Teddy Mountain UK have kindly given me several shout-outs during their Facebook live videos for sharing #MakeChristmasBearable so I wanted to share a blog post too. Hopefully, it will help raise even more awareness for such a lovely campaign.

How To Nominate

I know many of my readers struggle this time of year and I’m sure many can think of someone who does too. Together we can help put a smile on a few more faces by sharing and nominating people to win daily.

With 13 more days to go and a prize each day, why not pop over to Teddy Mountain UK’s Facebook page and nominate a friend. I’m sure it will mean the world to whoever you win it for and could #MakeChristmasBearable for them!

This is a fantastic campaign and I would love it if you could share, nominate or even just watch a video and see what Teddy Mountain UK are doing 

Discussing Feelings With My Mood Stars

We’ve been discussing feelings with My Mood Stars this week from Wendy Woo. As mental health and wellness is the focus on the blog right now these fit in perfectly! Being able to discuss our feelings is important and learning that from an early age can only be beneficial. 

My Mood Stars

My Mood Stars

My Mood Stars are a fun developmental aid which encourages children to learn about and discuss their feelings. Through imaginative play children can find fun ways to share their feelings. There are 8 stars in total, Happy, Sad, Sleepy, Shy, Scared, Silly, Cross & Surprised. My Mood Stars comes with a Velcro board for the stars to attach to for £29.99

The Idea Behind My Mood Stars
 
Self-confident children in touch with their feelings find it easier to flourish in social situations. Indeed personal, social and emotional development and communication are key aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage in the UK. Children who understand and can express and manage their own emotions, as well as those around them, are more likely to develop a positive sense of self and be assured and inquisitive learners.

Discussing Feelings

Discussing Feelings With My Mood Stars

We’ve spent the week discussing & drawing what makes us feel each feeling. We began with finding one thing for each feeling and I was pleased to see the girls could easily come up with ideas. We received a My Mood Stars book to record our feelings in which you can buy for £5.99.

Feeling Scared

Eva really enjoyed drawing each feeling and came up with some great pictures!

Feeling Happy

We’ve used the board to throw Stars when we want to discuss a feeling too. Angry has been used quite a bit with the girls off school and arguing. It’s had a very positive effect as they then take the time to listen to each other.

Discussing feelings with my mood stars

Another activity we have enjoyed is looking back at our day and through feelings and what made us feel that way. From waking up Cross because there’s too much noise in the building to feeling Happy because we watched a film. It’s lovely to see the girls discussing their feelings and I love the whole idea behind My Mood Stars.

You can also buy a fantastic rhyming book called Rat’s Musical Band written by Wendy White which the girls really enjoyed reading. It really flows nicely and appeals to children with colourful illustrations by Claire Rollinson. This is just £9.99 on the Wendy Woo Site.

Another lovely addition to the Wendy Woo Site we were kindly sent are cute baby Tooth Pockets. The girls love these and now can’t wait until they lose a tooth! Right now they are only £2!
