Top 5 Free Easter Printable Activities

Aaaaaaa Easter, a time of year where we seem to end up spending our hard earned money on chocolate and sweets? How many eggs do you buy for your children, I've bought mine one each as I know they will get more from various family members and friends?

I wrote a blog post last week showing some alternative gifts that you could buy from Great Gizmos but even then I was thinking do we really need to be buying presents for this occasion?

Since then, I've been searching the internet for ideas of things to do at Easter that don't involve spending money.

I was one of the lucky people to sign up to Snazaroo and receive a free Easter face painting kit, so the girls will be made into cute little bunnies.

I also managed to find quite a few sites with free printable activities for the children to be doing over the Easter weekend. With so many to choose from I decided to share with you my favourites.

Here are my top 5 picks for free Easter Printable Activities :

Creme Egg Milkshake Recipe

If you hadn't already notice all the aisles full of Easter eggs, I'm going to let you know that Easter is fast approaching. One of my all time favourite Easter treats has to be a Cadbury Creme Egg and the all important question is how do you I eat mine??

creme egg how do you eat yours

Normally I like to bite the top off and then lick the cream out of the inside mmmmm. This year I decided to change things up a little, instead of eating them, why not drink them?? So here is my recipe for Creme Egg milkshake.

Baby Suffering With Colic? You're Not Alone

Having four kids, I have had my fair share of ups and downs, sleepless nights and moments of panic where I just didn't know what to do with myself or my little one. I remember feeling very alone at times, not wanting to burden others with my troubles. One of those times was when Gracie as a baby was suffering with colic.

Baby colic or infantile colic is described as when your little one is in distress/crying which last for more than three hours a day and more than three days a week. Obviously this is just a guideline, your baby may cry more or less.

Colic usually starts within those first few weeks of your babies life, an already tough time for parents as they try to adjust to a new life/new routine. I myself remember walking round in a daze sometimes from being so tired.

Infacol want to offer parents some much needed help and support. They have opened up a virtual colic support clinc. Here you can type your questions and get video answers from a medically trained midwife.

This lovely company are forever expanding and have recently introduced a new product to their range, 'Yummy Yoghurts Greek Style'. I was lucky enough to be sent one of each of the new flavours for me  Layla to try and some goodies to help us get into the Greek spirit of things.

My girls are huge fans of dressing up and couldn't wait to be made into tiny titans. We were provided with a sheet, a golden rope and a wreath, all we needed to do was get a little creative.

Read With Me #15

Hi there. Welcome to this weeks #ReadWithMe. Thanks so much to everyone that linked up last week, there was a good selection of books, both adult and childrens that were recommended, I've added a few to my to read list.

I thought I would highlight a couple of my favourite posts that linked up last week.

The first post is from Happiness in Learning. She talked about just why she loves books, the feelings they envoke in her, I could relate to a lot of what she said.

The second post is from Umeandthekids. She wrote a wonderful post all about bedtime stories and just why you are never to old for them. Something I completely agree with, books are important whatever age you are and good story at night time certainly doesn't hurt.

This week, even though I still have well over 100 books to be read on my kindle, I actually decided to re read the 50 shades of grey series. Do any of you like to re read books? Do you have a go to book that you will quite happily read time and time again??

Now it's time for the link up. If you are new here please take a look at the introduction post. If you are regular, you know the drill :) come and link up all those book related posts, new or old, reviews, personal posts, all are welcome. It is appreciated if you take the time to comment on atleast 2 other posts that link up and as I always I would really love it if you could display my badge. Happy reading.


Love Lines by Diana Nixon - The Blog Tour

Last month saw the re release of Diana Nixon's book Love Lines. I was lucky enough to review another one Diana's books The Souls of Rain, so I was really excited to be able to join in with the blog tour to let you know a little bit more about this book.
The synopsis
The traces of supernatural powers have always been crossing the world of human beings. Many people know about the existence of healers, mind readers, oneiromancers and wizards. But for centuries their lives have been kept secret and no one has ever heard about Dever, a kingdom of mysteries and magic.
Neither has Eileen Clark, whose life has never been different from the one other teenagers have.
Everything changes the day Eileen receives an invitation to join the ranks of Dever’s students.
Nothing will ever be the same again…
New life, new friends, new enemies…
love lines diana nixon
And love so powerful that no magic will be able to destroy…

The book is all about the paranormal. 
Eileen Clark is a normal girl as far as she is aware. A couple of weeks before herself and her long time friend, Amanda Fairey, are due to leave for university, she starts having these recurrent dreams/nightmares. Someone is with her in these dreams but who?
Undecided on what they mean, they seek out a fortune teller, a lady who later turns out to be not quite as she seems.
"You are marked by the fire, your wings are shining in the sunlight"
Still just as confused, Eileen is then invited to a school that she has never heard of, Dever.
