Mince Pie Cookie Recipe

I love a good mince pie but the kids aren't as bigger fans as me so I came up with a recipe that still has that festive feel but is a bit more appealing to the children.

These cookies are similar to those that you can purchase at Millie's Cookies, sweet, delicious and doughy.

The mince meat just gives them that Christmas touch.

Gaining Independence The Trunki ToddlePak

I am a huge fan of Trunki. I recently reviewed their BoostaPak and was extremely impressed with just how useful it was so when they released their newest product, the ToddlePak, I was eager to put it to the test.

Available in 7 different designs, there is one to suit every child's personality. You can choose from :

Purple Owl
Red Fox
Orange Monkey
Green Dinosaur
Yellow Lion
Pink or Blue 

Each one is bright and fun, making the idea of wearing it appealing to your little ones. I chose the purple owl. 

LeapFrog LeapPad XDi Ultra Review

Being a LeapFrog Ambassador means I get to bring you all the latest news and reviews. This month I was fortunate to be sent the latest LeapPad to test and try, well I say me but it's the kids who have are the real testers.

Win A Christmas Book

We all love a good book and that's made even better when it has a Christmas theme to it. The Reindeer Rebellion by Lisa Trumbauer defnitely fits the bill.

Signs of Good Times To Come

So at some point in the future we will finally own our very own house, how close we are to this remains to be seen because the process keeps hitting some rather substantial bumps.

However whilst we wait I have started thinking about what I want our new home to look like.

When we rented we were never allowed to hang things on the walls but this is something I want to change.

I love word art and I want our forever home to be filled with signs of positivity and messages of love.

I've already bought a couple of things ready, these are pictured to the right, I found these in Pound Stretcher and the total cost for the two signs and the coasters was a tiny £5, got to love a bargain. Below I have put together a little mood board showcasing few of the signs/pictures that I'm planning to purchase.

Read With Me #47

Hello and welcome to another Read With Me. Can you believe we are in the last week of November??

read with me
Following on from last weeks posts discussing Christmas I was so pleased to see some lovely Christmassy posts linked up.

My favourite had to be the ultimate Christmas book list from Small People Big Ideas, some I had heard of, others I hadn't.

Here are few more Christmas books which I'd like to recommend.

Santa's Beard by Matilda Tristram and TOm Duxbury, illustrated wonderfully by Nick Sharratt.

The Jolly Christmas Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg

The Polar Pack Book Review

Books are brilliant because not only can you read them again and again, getting lost in the story but you can also build on them, expand and extend the tales by creating activities to explore more about what they've read. Madeleine Rogers, founder of the Hove based children's designer Mibo has written a series of books which saves you some time and effort on the creative side. Included in the set is The Polar Pack, The Jungle Crew and The Safari Set.

I was kindly sent The Polar Pack for my girls to read and enjoy.
