Making Brushing Your Teeth Fun For Kids

Thanks to Aimee for this guest post on making brushing your teeth fun for kids.

 

Taking care of kids isn’t for the faint hearted, and morning and bedtime routines can feel like the toughest of battles. Trying to get your child to stand and brush their teeth for 2 minutes twice a day might seem hard enough never mind getting them to have fun as well!

It isn’t always easy but it is crucial to form these good oral care habits from an early age. And they will thank you for it later.

Thankfully kids have the wildest imaginations, so the job doesn’t have to be entirely up to you.

You can share it with – The Tooth Fairy.

Appeal to your child’s fun and vivid imagination by conjuring up this classic and well-loved tale of the magic tooth fairy who collects shiny and healthy teeth in return for rewards. The better story you conjure up, the more your child is going to want to make her happy.

Living Arrows 1/52 (2018)

It’s the start of a brand new year so I thought I would join in with the weekly Living Arrows linky run by Donna over at What The Redhead Said

The idea behind Living Arrows is to celebrate childhood. It’s name is taken from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

I will aim to post every Monday sharing a photo of baby girl of what we have been up to the previous week. I think it’s a wonderful idea to document how much she is developing and growing everyday. She is currently 23 months old and time is flying by quickly. Plus with a new baby arriving in April there will be lots more photos to share this coming year!

This past week has been baby girl’s second Christmas. She doesn’t understand the concept of Christmas but thoroughly enjoyed opening all her presents. My husband and I didn’t buy her a lot as we knew family would. Tearing open the wrapping paper and playing with the cardboard was her highlight!  Oh and her new kitchen! All we have had all week is her going around with her kettle and a cup saying “cup of tea?” then taking it away from you!

JoJo Siwa Microphone and Bodacious Bow Review

We love to watch JoJo Siwa on YouTube. Such a talented young lady, JoJo started her career on the TV show Dance Moms and has since released her own hit song. My baby girl is very much into her singing (in her toddler speak!) and dancing around the living room to JoJo. So when we got the opportunity to review the Microphone and Bodacious Bow from Flair we got a tad excited. Yes I know I’m a big kid as well!

The age range of these products is around 3-8 years. JoJo also has a singing doll available in the range.

Kids Christmas Gift Guide 2017

It’s that time of year again for Christmas Shopping. You may remember my Christmas guide from last year where I did a selection of items for babies and kids. This year as baby girl is older I have put together a kids gift guide for all ages of children. Some bits will be suitable for younger and some bits for older children.

I do hope you find something suitable for your children.

Happy Shopping!

Arty Apple Personalised Wall Art Review

We left all of baby girls wall stickers on her old bedroom wall in our old house as they were too hard to get off without damaging the paintwork. So this is the perfect opportunity to have a hunt around for some new artwork and prints for her bedroom walls, and we have been very lucky in that Arty Apple came along and offered up a review of a product on her site we knew exactly what to choose – personalised wall art.
