I can’t quite believe how quickly the months seem to pass at the moment, but here we are again, ready with our next #BostikBloggers project, this time Bonfire Night Snack Jars that can be used for your fireworks snacking, but we are filling ours with Smores Cheesecake.
The #BostikBlogger theme this month is Bonfire Night, so we wanted to do something with fireworks.
For this craft we used an empty jar and a variety of Bostik Glitter Pens per person.Read more: Bonfire Night Snack Jars #BostikBloggers

Whether you’re visiting for New Year’s Eve in Nottingham or are looking for a place to visit during the summer, Nottingham offers fun and excitement for the whole family.
But while the famous heroic outlaw is certainly one of the most popular reasons people visit the Midlands city of Nottingham, once you get there you’ll find there’s plenty more to do and see. A family day trip can easily turn into a weekend break or even a holiday as there’s so much to see and do!
But before you start making plans to explore Sherwood Forest and take a trip to Nottingham Castle, let me share some of my favourite things to do and see. One of the bonuses of home education is the ability to learn ‘hands-on’ is why historic cities like Nottingham are so helpful.
By exploring these cities or even just visiting for a day, children can learn so much! Below I’ve put together a list of some of Nottingham’s seasonal events for the rest of the year and some for next year as well. There’s always something going on in Nottingham. So, whatever time of year your family decides to visit you’ll be sure to find something both fun and educational on offer.Read more: Educational And Exciting Nottingham Is The Place To Go
As you know, we’re big fans of Project MC2 in this house. We’ve had a decent variety of Project MC2 dolls and the Project MC2 Spy Bag is still our favourite from the product range, but my girls were pretty excited by the Project MC2 Crayon Makeup Science Kit.

I’ve mentioned a few times how my girls just love teeny tiny collectibles, so when we had the opportunity to review a new range of collectible toys – the Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots dolls – we jumped at it.
As it happens, these arrived the same week Aviya lost her bed-time buddy, her favourite cuddle toy, which seems to have remained behind somewhere while we were on holiday, so these have temporarily dulled the wailing and gnashing of teeth while I scramble to find it.

There are 45 of these doll combinations to collect, and they come in a little cheaper at £4.99 (compared to £7.99 for the big sister).

Aviya may be only five years old, but she has a serious love for snow globes and is building quite the collection, but we do sometimes have tears as she likes to play with them, and snow globes aren’t exactly made from the strongest glass. That’s the main reason I loved the idea of My Mermaid Lagoon, a magical mermaid world with no water but glittery kenetic sand.

Once you have a room beautifully decorated and you have food all good to go, you need to have a few games to keep your young adventurers occupied for an hour and a half (or two hours, or whatever). We always have parties somewhere with lots of room to run around, or in the woods so there’s plenty to keep the kids busy without the need for magicians or other paid entertainment. That said, we do like having some themed games at our parties, and if you do, here’s a run-down for you:

The end of summer, like many others in this parenting journey, is one of those where I constantly find myself reaching for sugary, sweet, quick energy foods that normally involve being covered in chocolate and pretty much both terrible for me, and not really providing long term solutions, any nutrition, or really helping with the energy problems.
