Zuru Smashers Dino Eggs With Smyths Toys

[Gifted for review]

I don't know about your kids but our son, JJ, loves pretty much anything dinosaur related! So he was super exited when he first tried the Zuru Smashers range last year.

When we heard about the new dinosaur themed range the excitement reached fever pitch! As our box of gifted Dino Smashers arrived there were squeaks of joy and JJ was excited to get smashing!

Teaching Your Kids To Respect School Rules

Collaborative Post

Rules are a huge element of school life and children must try their best to respect the rules if they hope to do well throughout their education. Children, however, are not born knowing how to follow rules and just like reading and writing it's something that has to be taught.

Here are some tips on how to achieve this from an international school in Spain.

Low Budget Rock Painting

Over the last couple of years rock painting has become really popular and you can often spot decorated rocks and pebbles whilst out and about, but especially in local parks or nature reserves.

JJ and I have wanted to try this for a while and after we gave it a try on our recent visit to Wordsworth House we thought we'd try it at home. I soon discovered that the special pens can be a little pricey! With prices starting at £12 and going upwards to £25, this craft does can be pricey! But at Wordsworth House I found a more affordable way to rock paint and now it's time to share it with you!
