SYN FREE Chicken and Spinach Curry

I saw someone post this recipe but then, as usual lost the post so I scoured the web, looked at a few and wangled one up myself, which is my favouritist thing to do in the kitchen, make a recipe my own and then share with you lovelies!

What you need:
3 Chicken breasts (cubed)
2tbsp Medium Curry Powder 
1tsp Ground Ginger
1 large garlic clove
1 large onion (diced)
3 handfuls of Spinach
1 tin chopped tomatoes
250g Pasatta
1 chicken stock pot 

Fry your onion and garlic and fry for a couple of minutes.
Add the diced chicken and fry until golden brown.
Add the curry powder (i used 2 tbsp and couldnt really taste it so added more, if your unsure add less and add more to taste!) and fry for another minute or so before adding the tomatoes and passata.
Stir in the ginger and add the stock pot. 
Cook for around 15/20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. 
In the last minute add the spinach and cook until its wilted down.
Serve with Rice and (if your lucky enough to not be following SW) a yummy warm Naan bread! MMMMM!!!!


Tasty Tuesdays on

Cereal Box Football Pitch.

What better way to celebrate the impending World Cup than with you very own football pitch made from a cereal box! 

Join The Number Constellations.

This was a great activity to get Jenson to think about the order of numbers. He isn't too confident at counting yet and this really helped him.

What you need:

Black paper
Star stickers
Sticky numbers

Starting simple for my Evie, Evie didn't really get it I didn't think she would as she's not even 2 I wasn't to fussed, but I like to involve her now she doesn't have a nap time when we used to focus on things like this. 

And I made 2 for Jenson but focused on 1-5.

Jenson did really well we used his favourite counting book as a tool to help him turning the pages to find the next number. I think it worked well. 

DIY Space Tunnel.

Our crawl through space tunnel was an amazing hit with the kids and (for once) it looked great!

What you need:

large cardboard box
battery operated fairy lights 
screwdriver (or something to make small holes in your box)
sticky tape
dark blanket 
(ours wasn't free standing so we had to wedge it between our pouffe and a full wash basket, if you wanted it free standing you could use a deep box and not open it up so they could just sit inside!!)

It was really easy to make make  holes in your box to poke the fairy light heads into, holes for the planets to hang from cover with a blanket and there you have it play time!!


Shape Matching Rockets

This activity was so easy to prep, low maintenance and quick too. Whats not to love right? These shape matching rockets are a great way to get tots recognising and naming shapes as well as exploring space.

Space Play Dough.

This was my most favourite play dough we have ever played with! If you have followed me from the beginning you will now how STRESSED I got the last time I made play dough. I did think this was heading that way but (luckily Dean was home and took control of the monsters!!
