I was recently contacted by Cheeky Chompers, who were keen to share something with me. I don’t know why on earth I’ve never heard of Cheeky Chompers before! With four children who have all suffered white badly with teething, this is one brand I definitely should have known about! At the moment Elsie has a back tooth coming through and to say the last two weeks have been a nightmare would be an understatement! For some reason, reflux babies experience a worsening of symptoms during teething which is just grim. So any relief we can give her is welcomed, and it looks as though Cheeky Chompers have some really fantastic products for just this purpose. I love the idea of dribble bibs and blankets with a soft, chewable edge for little ones to relieve their gums! Such a simple but fantastic idea. So when Cheeky Chompers asked me if I’d like to take the latest addition, Chewy, on an adventure I could hardly say no! This is our Cheeky Chomper Adventure with Chewy, as told in photos…
This Christmas, I’ve failed miserably at the whole Christmas crafts for the kids thing. I had so many ideas pinned and yet so little time to do them. This is definitely something I intend to change next year, as with Bella about to start school in September, my time with her is running out. I did, however, manage this activity. We made a Christmas Treasure box for Elsie and it was fantastic. Elsie still plays with the treasure box now, and we placed it under the Christmas tree to distract her from the baubles and lights. And yes, it works! Here’s how to make a Christmas Treasure Box for babies.

We’re taking part in Adventure of Adam’s Tuff Spot A-X challenge once more and this time our letter is X!
I have to admit, x-ray was the first thing that came to mind and I don’t usually stick to the first thing at all, but I could see so much potential for this one! Recent events have dictated this one in fact. Not only have we recently done a dolly hospital at home, but poor old me has only gone and broken bones too! The kids have been asking lots of questions about my poor broken toes, and what it was like having an x-ray, so I couldn’t really pass this opportunity up. So here we have it: Tuff Spot A-Z: X is for X-ray!
First of all, I want to say how pleased I am that this activity worked so well. THANK YOU Teach Preschool!
Since the kids were already up to date with what a broken bone is, and what a plaster cast looks like, all we needed to talk about prior to this activity was what an x-ray actually was. We used YouTube to watch a couple of videos of kids going to the hospital to have an x-ray, and the kids were enthralled watching the big camera. But no x-ray pictures! Good old Google Images came up with lots though, and we spent some time talking about what we could see on the photos. (more…)
