A wooden playhouse is the dream birthday or Christmas present for many children. Despite being located just a few feet away from the house, the playhouse is a world of its own to your child. This is the place where they might spend hours daily daydreaming, organising imaginary parties with imaginary friends, or even to hide away after a stern lecture. In other words, a kids playhouse will be an important element of your child’s life. As such, it would be prudent to do plenty of research before committing to buy one – and we’d like to offer some help with your deliberations.
Tips on buying a wooden playhouse
Wooden houses come in many sizes, shapes and theme. In order to buy the perfect house for your child or children, you have to first determine the theme that they like. A gingerbread shaped house? A Swiss cottage? A lodge? A castle tower? Show you children some images and gauge their reaction. After you’ve determined the theme, you can move on to the size. How old are you children? How big of a playhouse do they require? Do you need an activity or swing set attachment? Once you’ve established these criteria, you will be able to quickly filter out unsuitable options.
This past week I have been testing out the latest toy craze of Glam Goo. Yes you heard that right, using goo or slime if you wish to decorate accessories. I suppose it’s kind of a crafty thing but ending up with surprisingly cool items kids can wear or take around with them.
“Slime gets a sprinkle of glitter with Glam Goo customisable and wearable slime”
I had great fun with the two packs of Glam that was sent over to review. First up is the Glam Goo fantasy pack.
This past week I have been reading The Lost Hat: Picnic Adventures Part One to baby girl. It’s the first book in the Kitty Katz Club series by Sarah Milne.
The fascinating thing about this book is that it has an accompanying CD. Throughout the book it tells you when to listen to the appropriate track at that point. I love the interactive way this book brings music and words together.
I remember when I was young getting home late from working evenings and popping a Rustlers burger in the microwave to fend off the hunger. It’s been a while since I’ve had one. So when the Rustlers Burger Hacking challenge came up with Britmums I thought I’d give it a go with the family.
See what we can come up with to turn an on the go snack which to be honest is more associated with students and people in a rush than families into a meal for the whole family. I will take on the challenge!!

With Spring on the way, soon I hope! It will be time to get back on the bikes and go out exploring the gorgeous Cornish countryside. One thing I have never thought of having was a bicycle first aid kit. With so many cars on the roads I believe it’s much safer to go off-road on the bikes. But it is inevitable that everyone will need to ride on the road at some point.
SJ Works got in contact with me a few weeks back asking if I would like to have a look at their bicycle first aid kit. I thought this would be a good time to get prepared for the sunnier, warmer weather that should be arriving shortly.
