Cooking With Kids. 4 Ingredient Herby Flat Breads

After following Jamie Oliver on Instagram, I came across a picture of his Easy Flatbread. I knew right away this would make a great lunch for the monsters. The recipe is so easy to follow that toddlers can make it themselves!

Activity Time. Dinosaur Sensory Bin.

Our Rice and Pom Pom Sensory Bin lasted a good couple of days before we started getting bored of it and it seemed like a shame to just throw out perfectly good rice, don't worry I didn't cook it I reused it in a new sensory bin!

Activity Time. Rice and Pom Pom Sensory Bin.

Now I love a sensory bin! The monsters love a sensory bin! In this house, we all love a sensory bin! I had seen some amazing wall mazes on some blogs that I thought would go well with a pom pom sensory bin....

Activity Time. Indoor Snow.

Now for a long time I've wanted to try this! Indoor Snow...amazing right?  Especially as the winter in the UK has somewhat lacked snow (gutted!). I got onto Pinterest to search for a suitable 'recipe' and quickly came across  D.I.Y Indoor Snowman on Modern Parents Messy Kids blog. I then sent the hubby of to Morrisons with a shopping list to collect my goodies...

Activity Time. Toddler Yoga with Cosmic Kids Yoga.

Day 6 of the #wmlplayeachday was explore....I really wanted us to explore something new and as they both really enjoy dancing I thought we could explore the ways our bodies move with a spot of baby/toddler yoga!

It took me quite a while to find something that was engaging for them as much as me (as well as being able to find what I was looking for as a lot of pregnancy yoga came up).  I eventually stumbled across Cosmic Kids Yoga and found the YouTube posts to be perfect for Jenson and Evie it kept their attention and was bright and colourful with a really friendly host.

The way it works is the host Jaimie tells a story, an interactive adventure for you all to go on and the yoga moves are incorporated into the adventure. 

We started with Episode 1 "Squish the fish" and immediately Evie got started copying me and watching Jaimie (Jenson on the other hand was having a huffy moment for some reason and wouldn't join in but his eyes didn't move from the screen on the laptop and I would watch him grinning at the story...when all of a sudden he would remember that he was supposed to be huffy!

Jenson finally came to join us 5 minutes in (then huffed his way through the remaining 10 minutes) to the 15 minute programme. They wanted to do another episode which I opened episode 2 whilst I made some lunch and I could hear their giggling from the kitchen!

It is definitely something I will return to and has been bookmarked on my laptop for future use!

Sorry for the blurred pics!

Activity Time. Monster Puppets.

Our inspiration for this activity came from Happy Hooligans though we took it in another direction and went for monster hand puppets instead of a hanging mobile.


So lets go back to one crazy mad morning in February 2014 I had posted a status update on Facebook and a photo on Instagram to tell all my friends about my hectic morning making 'quick and easy' play dough I had found on Pinterest (more on this later!)....a few friends suggested I should write a blog myself so here I am, with a blog that is a lot bigger than I ever expected it would, or could, be...

Click above to meet us and then read on for all about us!
(it is on a loop so I'm sorry about that!!)

I'll start by introducing myself and my beauts...

I am Becky a married stay at home Mummy to:

Ellie (Dec '04)

  Jenson (May '11), 

Evie (June '12)

and Elsie (October '13)

I was a nursery nurse for 12 years so I thought being a stay at home Mummy would come easy...don't get me wrong I adore my kids and after working full time through my way through my eldest girls toddler years I'm so grateful that we are now in a position that I can stay home but sometimes it's so crazy and so stressful! 
I am a great lover of all things mummy blog's have to offer BUT I, and more than a few of my friends, don't feel they are always 100% real because we aren't always Super Duper Mummy (sometimes just Super Mum has to do!!) and activities aren't always as perfect and straightforward as they first may seem!

I will share all the things that us Mummy's come across and tell you how it really is , not to scare you but to prepare you! Which brings me nicely to the play dough story! ''Quick and Easy'' the post on Pinterest told me so I thought oh good I can get it done in and out the kitchen before the 2 toddlers realised I was gone and not out of the room long enough for Elsie to start screaming at the fact she couldn't see me! ''you can whip this up in seconds'' the Mumma said (it took a good half an hour) ''you will be out of the kitchen before the kids even notice your gone'' she said (erm Elsie started crying as soon as my hands were in the gloopy pre-play dough mess, Jenson was at the gate wanting to 'help') ''mess free'' was promised (myself, Elsie, Jenson and my living room carpet were covered in flour and red food colouring not to mention the disaster area my kitchen had became! Evie on the other hand stayed out of the chaos quietly playing in her play tent! 

The good part came 1 or so hours later when all had calmed down kitchen cleaned, carpet hoovered, Elsie fast asleep after a mammoth screaming fit and Jenson and Evie sat enjoying playing with the playdough cupcake activity I'd set up for them...that was when I could take 5 minutes to enjoy a cup of coffee (and sneaky chocolate biscuit or 3 in the kitchen).

So if you wish to follow my crazy family and the madness that comes everyday follow me and join in the madness (or just sit back and laugh along with me as I relive my best (and worst) days with you, and all the bits inbetween.
