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. Continue reading
Recently we were sent a Russell the dream sheepdog from Sweet Dreamers, the creators of the iconic Ewan the dream sheep. The Toddler has had a Ewan since she was very small, so we knew already how fab Russell was likely to be. And we weren’t disappointed! Since The Toddler moved from a cot to a bed, she’s had a few unsettled nights where she’s fallen onto the floor or woken with no covers on so the timing of Russell was perfect! This is the story of Bella and Russell…
A cuddly companion
The Toddler has inherited her siblings’ love of cuddly toys, so the minute she saw Russell she was in love! Nicknamed ‘My Purple Dog’, Russell has pretty much been by The Toddler’s side since he arrived and when he’s not he sits happily at the end of here bed. Because the toy is soft and cuddly, it makes a wonderful sleeping buddy too, even without batteries for the sounds and lights. Continue reading
We were recently lucky enough to be invited to Alton Towers courtesy of Cbeebies magazine, to learn a little more about the publication itself, and to have a look around the newly opened Cbeebies Land Alton Towers. How could I resist?
The Preschooler has had a subscription to the Cbeebies magazine for some time now, and we love the way that each issue seems to cater for his interests so well. The Preschooler was especially pleased with the swashbuckling pirates edition, and from my point of the view the magazine is a wonderful way to enhance his learning ahead of his school start in September. So I was intrigued to see what our day at Alton Towers would have in store for us! Continue reading
As part of the wonderfully beautiful Frugi Family, the kids and I were delighted to be sent this beautiful limited edition Frugi long sleeved t-shirt to commemorate the royal birthday! Prince George turns one today and we’re honoured to be able to celebrate with him!
A child’s first birthday is a wonderful occasion for any family, and I have such happy memories of each and every first birthday party we’ve been lucky enough to hold at home. Each of my three have had a special birthday outfit which is now lovingly packed away into memory boxes. Mainly for me, I suspect. So how wonderful is it that Frugi has brought out this George and the Dragons t-shirt to celebrate baby George’s birthday? A true memory box outfit if ever I saw one!
