Ladybird Sensory Play

I know lots of you follow us on Instagram and watch our stories. If you got round to watching them recently you will know that the boys have started to spot ladybirds/ladybugs whilst out and about exploring the great outdoors. I wanted to build on this once we were back at home so I set a little sensory play up for them. 

I follow lots of inspirational people on Instagram. I was inspired by a wonderful set up by - Makes Sense Toys . It was the perfect time to give it a go and as always was well received by the children.

Schleich Dinosaurs Review

Schleich Dinosaurs Review


Schleich Dinosaurs Review


We were given the opportunity to review some Schleich Dinosaurs. I often admire their figures when I'm out and about shopping. They are so realistic and are a fantastic resource for imaginative play and learning.

Neve has been dinosaur crazy for quite a while now. She has enjoyed dinosaur topics at school twice and her interest in them has never gone away. Dinosaurs have long fascinated and excited children as young minds imagine their colossal size, mighty roars and formidable power. I kept it a secret that we were having this wonderful opportunity as I wanted to suprize her. 

The dinosaurs landed. Neve was at school. She has a loft bedroom so I dotted them on the stairs for her to discover when she got back. She was overjoyed. Squeals at her discovery were heard and she took them up in her bedroom to go and play.

All the bags are fully recyclable and they also do cardboard containers for you to collect your own eggs. As soon as we had finished with the egg container I knew exactly what we could make with them - feeders for our wildlife visitors.
