30 Days of Science with Little Passports

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.

Baby Bath Towel Gift Set Review

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.

Tips on becoming that Ideal Parent

I’m relatively new to parenting as you know, so I have been reading lots of different articles on how to become the ideal parent. Baby girl is 7 months old and we have now started to use the word ‘no’ with her to start introducing those boundaries. When you say no to her she will stop what ever she’s doing and look up. I feel as if she is listening.

Growing up my mum and dad taught us all about good manners and to be polite. It doesn’t cost anything to be polite.

Here are some good manners to teach your kids.

Simple phrases for young kids to start learning.

I love trawling around Twitter, reading blogs, entering a few competitions and looking out for blogger opportunities. So when I saw Wicked Uncle had put out a tweet looking for bloggers to take up their Wicked Uncle challenge, I answered their call.

You know me I love a challenge!

Book Review: Chloe’s Secret Princess Club by Emma Barnes

Welcome back to Book Review Monday’s and the first stop on the blog tour today. This week’s review is of the kids book Chloe’s Secret Princess Club (Chloe’s Secret Club)

I’m also hosting a giveaway of the book with 3 winners. But more about that later on.

I’ve always loved reading kids books. I’m a big kid at heart! They are quick and easy reads when you have some spare minutes. In fact it took me just an hour to read Chloe’s Secret Princess Club.

Book Description

Chloe never means to get into trouble but sometimes her plans get a little out of control. With her two best friends, she forms a Secret Club dedicated to making their dreams come true – but fantasy and reality don’t always mix!

My Review

I love the pink sparkly front cover. It’s that perfect book for your little princess.

The book introduces us to Chloe, a natural-born dreamer. Her head is away in the clouds most of the time so she’s misses what’s going on around her.

One day she heads home from school with a very disappointing mental maths score in which her obnoxious twin brother  Arther is quick to point out. You see while the test was going on, Chloe was dreaming again. Her parents know what Chloe is like and her mum tells her that she can be anyone she wants if she only puts her mind to it.

Chloe takes this as meaning she can be a real princess. She includes two friends, Aisha and Eliza into her secret and they all form the secret princess club. All three of them come up with their own princess names, secret tasks to undertake and make sure they have lots of sleepovers.

I enjoyed reading along with all their tasks and any little girl would really enjoy this book.

I love the little extras the book includes such as the jam tarts recipe as the back of the book in which the princesses make in the book. Also a little quiz and a how-to guide on starting your own princess club.

I’m very happy to give Chloe’s Secret Princess Club 5 out of 5 stars.
