During my hunt on Twitter for items to add to my Christmas Gift Guide list, the lovely people at Gotrovo contacted me asking if I would like to review their treasure hunt game.
Ever since I was a kid I have loved treasure hunts. you could always find me and my older sister out hunting for treasures as kids around the old rough mine areas where we lived. We used to find old bits of pottery, old coins and pieces of fool’s gold.
So you can imagine the big kid inside me getting all excited over the chance to review a treasure hunt game!
So What Is Gotrovo?
Gotrovo is a family treasure hunt game suitable for ages 3-8 years old and 1 or more players. The objective of the game is to follow a trail of clues to reach the treasure at the end. You collect gold coins as you go.
I have always been a bit of a Science nerd, well more than a bit! I did my A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. So I am constantly always on the look out for Sciencey articles to read, and now since I have baby girl, its activities I can do with her when she’s older.
A while back I wrote a review on the Little Passports kit that we got to try out, and they actually have their own blog extending on the Little Passports kits that they offer.
Little Passports aim to inspire and educate children about the world through their subscription service and lots of fun stuff to do on their own blog. This month they have been doing the 30 days of Science challenge.
The 30 Days of Science continues on the Little Passports blog with many show-stopping experiments, here are few to get you started.
So grab your kids and start exploring science!
As you all know I’m a huge reader and love all kinds of books. As much as I love blogging I also love to find a few minutes to pick up a book and relax. The most recent book I’ve been reading is Dance With The Dead by James Nally. Suggested by one of my blogger friends Bridie by the Sea.
One of my most favourite genres is crime/thrillers. I always go back to them if I’ve been reading a light fluffy book or reading the same nursery rhyme book for the umpteenth time with baby girl.
Now we are creeping towards Autumn and Winter I find myself reading many more books. Well I used to before baby girl came along. I wonder if I will have the time this year? Probably not. But so long as I can squeeze a book every couple of weeks in I’ll be happy.
Anyway enough of my waffling. So what are my first thought’s on Dance With The Dead?
We love bathtime in our house. So when Bathing Bunnies asked us if we would like to review one of their baby bath towel gift sets we jumped at the chance. Even better is that they have given us a set to give away to one of you, but more about that later on.
Baby girl loves giraffe’s so that was the obvious gift set for us to choose for her. But Bathing Bunnies have a wide range of other animals that are all so very cute. As an extra they do offer personalisation for the hooded towels as well.
The beauty of Europe will never cease to amaze many. It will always be in the long list of preferred traveling destinations in the world. This magical place offers a lot of attractions which makes it difficult to narrow the choices for that family tour you have been planning to do. So, to make things easier, we are suggesting a few of the most beautiful islands you might consider visiting.
We have decided to take up the #BepanthenBedtimeChallenge with Bepanthen. The idea of this challenge is for us to share our bedtime routine and night-time nappy changes experiences with you using Bepanthen nappy care ointment to help protect against the causes of nappy rash.
Up until 4 and half months baby girl used to sleep through the night from about 4 weeks. Now at nearly 7 and half months she wakes up at least twice a night on a good night. She is teething quite bad at the moment and I’m sure this wakes her up during the night.
Therefore I like to use a nappy ointment like Bepanthen to protect her little botty especially now she is teething. I don’t know if it’s connected but she is more prone to nappy rash while she is teething.
