Ariel Bath Styling Doll | Review

Violet recently received this fun bath hair styling doll. The kids really don't have many bath toys, so it was nice to try out something different for a change, this Disney Ariel Styling doll is really great, she comes with added hair accessories and jewellery. Violet honestly didn't want to get out of the bath once she had this doll to play with! Hours of fun, she's even played with it not in the bath.

The main added feature is that Ariels Eyes, lips and Hair change in the water. Which is great and fun to watch once Violet dunks her in! Her eye shadow turns pink, her hair stripe turns from dark blue to an aqua type colour and her lips turn pink.

Ariel has really long and curly hair and with the added accessories we've had a great time styling it like at a hair salon. The styling head itself is sat in a cradle which can be attached the the bathroom tiles with suckers to keep it in place. 

Great toy for the bath Violet really approves and even her big brother has had fun playing with it!

Mottisfont National Trust | Our Day 1st Sept

We visited Mottisfont back in the summer and i have had no time to share these beautiful pictures!
We had a fantastic time at this National Trust one of my absolute favourite for sure.. Lots of things for kids to do and climb and the weather was amazing also which topped it off!

They also had a special event on sharing the life of  Beatrix Potter through here books in little fairy doors that you could find around the forest, it was wonderful the kids really got in to it and new enjoyed guessing who was in each door.

The stables had a lovely restaurant, we packed a picnic like we always do but enjoyed some yummy ice creams to cool us down. The flower garden was beautiful and hidden behind some walls, the kids loved the waterfalls and took every opportunity to get wet to cool off!!

They have lots of things going on over half October half term, which we will definitely be going to. Im also looking to seeing Autumn at Mottisfont as I'm sure it will look very different but still beautiful!

Anyway heres my picture spam enjoy x

LadyBird Learning Books with Topsy & Tim

The children have been enjoying some fun learning books recently from the Ladybird range. They have a great choice of different learning books available for many ages. From as young as 3 these books can help little ones put pen to paper before they head off to big school. 

Violet has been practicing her writing with the 'first' books, we haven't got to the sums yet but I'm sure she'll get the swing of things once she settles in school. The basic dots to follow are really great for this age, tracing can help with learning the basics then practicing free hand.

We've all enjoyed using the telling the time book! So much fun changing the hands and getting them spot on with what the book reads, as well as making conversation between us with what time we do things etc. The Our Day book is a great read and really visually shows the children what we get up to in a full day as well as teaching them how to tell the time!

Alister has really enjoyed the Im ready for science book, finding out the basics of how to grow seeds, where things come from and why different things happen. Its really answered a lot of the questions that he has had recently so has been very useful. Alister especially loves the emergency Rescue book. Looking at all the different modes of transport we use to help people in need at the fastest to. These books go in to great depth without being complicated and Alister finds he can read them well himself.

Definitely check out these books if your looking for something fun and interesting yet great for home learning.
