5 minute fun!


Its easy to get bogged down with the hustle and bustle of Christmas and not have the time or energy to sit down and have a quiet moment with your little ones. As the hype continues over the next few days your overexcited offspring may struggle to settle down and do quieter activities.

5minutefun.com brings super quick fun and educational activities from the makers of CBeebies magazine.  Ideas and activities vary from games to do during the weekly shop to wind downs before bed. From games to make you move to games that make you do maths!

I decided that we should give the dice game a go. Its simple and easy to play. You roll a dice and clap the number it lands on. I soon realised this was going to take some work.

Joseph is quiet a good counter. He can follow the numbers and say the one that comes next. I say one, he says two etc. What I hadn't considered was that he hadn't seen a dice before. Cue excitement and lots of "mine, mine, mine" like a seagull from Finding Nemo, but we persevered and let him keep hold of the dice and got another for rolling. 





It paid off as he started to join in and found the rolling of the dice and Daddy and I clapping hilarious.

There are so many little activities over on 5minutefun.com and its an great resource if you struggle with ideas for things to do with your little one. 

Now, if you tend to avoid the magazine aisle because it generates lots of "please, please. please" consider paying it a visit for a change and take a look at the CBeebies magazine. Just like the 5minutefun.com it is also full of little activities and things to do. Its ideal to have to hand if you're going for appointments, travelling or having what I call chill your beans time! 







Take a look and settle down for 5 minutes of fun.
