World Book Day with Pizza Express

So another year has passed and another World Book day has arrived!   This is one day that the children love to get involved in. Our book corner is huge and in fact is the most used area of the house. BG happily curls up and reads books to her brothers and sister and I…

Dribble Bubbs Review

For the last couple of months I have been trialling the Dribble Bubbs bed sheets and onesies. All I can say is wow. MO still sometimes struggles with setting himself during the day and night. This from researching and talking to other parents of Autistic children, is quite a common thing. I’ve been searching for…

Worry Plaque Review

MO gets extremely anxious because of his autism. If things aren’t exactly right or if our routine changes at all, MO can’t handle it. His stims are on overdrive, he can’t calm down and he is just generally can’t control his anxiety.   So when I was offered the Irish Fairy Door Company’s Worry Plaque…

The Amazing Craft Company Review

What do you do on a typical rainy British day, when your kids don’t want to splash in the puddles anymore and you just want to stay in the warm? That is the question I come up against a lot of the time, especially during the school holidays. So when The Amazing Craft Company approached me…

Educational Worksheets

I was recently approached by Education.com to review their educational worksheets. I chose to do the Autumn Subtraction Worksheet with MO. This was perfect and so simple to use that MO once we explained how to use the sheet, sat and worked through everything by himself. It gave him independence and completely boosted his self…

Sylvanian Families Ice Cream Shop

I was extremely excited to be sent through a Sylvanian Families Ice Cream Shop (RRP £29.99) to review recently. I grew up playing with Sylvanian Families at friends houses and it was always on my Christmas and Birthday lists growing up. In fact Sylvanian Families have been around since 1985 (so their 4 years older then…

More 2 Explore Adventure Belt

One of the main issues I find when travelling around with the children is the safety aspect. MO can be rather unpredictable and can suddenly dart into a road, so if I am pushing the pushchair, having to quickly grab him can be very dangerous for all involved. Also, with crowds or shopping if I…

Food Sensory Play Activity

As my regular readers will know, BBG has trouble with eating and we have just been told to do a lot of food sensory activities to encourage her to eat different textures. added to the mix MO has sensory processing problems, this affects everyday activities including eating and playing. One of the biggest struggles he…

Doddl Cutlery Review

Do you ever struggle to get your child to eat using cutlery? Unfortunately MO really struggles, he does not see the point in cutlery so refuses to use it. I can’t remember a dinner time where we haven’t had to encourage and still fail, to get him to use his knife and folk. I had…

Bibetta Dribble Bib Review

I had the privilege of reviewing the award winning Bibetta Dribble Bib  (RRP £6.99) . I have to say I am extremely impressed and I can see why it received the awards.   There are numerous patterns to these bibs and  I had the pink chevron bib to trial. The designs are simple, yet fun and…

On Monday we ventured to Marsh Farm again. I recently reviewed one of their special character days, and we wanted to go back as they were opening a few attractions to the farm ready for the holidays, and do all the things we didn’t have time for last time. Monday was one of the first…
