Mini masterpieces with Galt 3

Jen and D had a go at crafting with the Galt mini mosaics set. Lots of lovely sticky foam squares – think colour by numbers but a whole lot cuter. We were encouraged to join in with this competition for the little ones to create mini masterpieces. The problem with this was Jen and D loved the set so much they didn’t want to “waste” mosaic bits on it – sorry Galt, but this does mean it is a great kit. So it’s a big thumbs up from my boys.

Parragon books – review roundup* 3

First up, an apology – I am a bad book buddy! My boys receive a book a month they are meant to review, and a pile of books is just sat next to my fireplace. So consider this a book round up if you will, catching up! All the links to buy them are in the Amazon widget* at the end of this post, or I have seen several of them in WHSmiths for less money normally than Amazon. First up… Yuck! Gross! Activities This book has lots of very boyish puzzles, colouring in a sewer maze to free a rat, Jen had fun scribbling through this book. It’s 192 pages and has an RRP of £10. Inside this disgustingly doodly, fabulously foul activity book, you’ll find everything that’s slimy, sludgy, icky and yucky! Including revolting doodles, creepy-crawly colouring and hideous how-to-draws. Plus gross mazes, puzzles and activities galore!
