H&A Bathtime Buddies – Making Bathtime Fun

I love bath time. We enjoy cuddles and laughs and talk about what happened in school and what we have to look forward to the next day. Yes, bath time can be quite a while in our home.

Sometimes, we do have tears as my little one hates to have water poured over her head while washing her hair. Make that most times.

We have noticed that having fun bath accessories ease the stress of hair washing and the crying is soon forgotten. We have used H & A products before and found them to be super fun.

We were recently sent  an Alphabet Set to try out.

I love this set. The reasons are manifold.

First of all – they are a good number of alphabets, 65 to be exact so you can create a number of words from them.

They come in a handy case that has holes on the lid (brilliant idea), so that all you need do is scoop them up after bath time into the case and turn it over so that all the water drains out. The result – dry foam letters for the next bath time. They don’t get that awful black gunge from being wet. And it would be quite a trial trying to dry out all the letters.

The alphabets are ideal for spelling. My 6 year old has spelling every week so I have been making him spell out his words in the bath. He loves it and doesn’t realise that he is learning in the bath!

My three year old is learning to recognize letters and sound out the phonic sounds so we practice those in the bath too.

Yes, we do kill quite a few birds with one stone!!

H&A have a wonderful range of products for children and they incorporate a lot of Disney characters which children love.

And here’s a short poem incorporating what H&A means to us –

 

Bathtime buddies from H&A
The perfect answer to bathtime play.
Crayons, squirters, foam and books,
You really need to take a look.
Frozen, Jake and Me to You
Princesses, Minnie, Doc Mcstuffins too
Spongebob, Planes , Thomas and Friends
With H and A the fun never ends.
There are no more tears, it’s always fun
You should see the happiness on Little One.
There’s giggles and laughs and gleeful shouts
The only problem is getting out!
They love it so and thanks to H&A
Bath time is exciting at the end of day.

How to Boost Creativity in Children

Mostly, the things that are challenging for parents are discovering the born talent of their kids and grooming it to the best of the kid’s ability. Make sure you do not ignore the first comings of the child regarding arts and crafts. As soon as you discover some of the signs, make sure you get started with the things to make your child grab the ability to make it to the best. Whether it is arts, singing, dancing, acting or anything else, provide him the courage to do it.

If you have got any of the mentioned characteristics in your child then here is what you have to do with them to boost creativity:

Arts

The speed and interest of your child in making drawings and coloring can tell a lot about his/her interest in arts and crafts. Get him a set of brushes, paints, clays, colors and canvases and unleash the artist within him. If he likes this then take him to view art galleries and architecture places.

Music

The children who are interested in music or are fond of dancing can easily be detected as soon as you play the jam. They may start singing the tone you had played previously or might start dancing just as you turn on the music. You can buy these kids CDs of their favorite songs. If you sense something else than singing then maybe he likes to play instruments. While teaching him any musical instrument, you will come to know what he really is into. Get him/her enrolled in the art lessons. Appreciate his paintings and encourage to draw more. Hang all his paintings in his room or your living room to make him feel inspired.

Performing

Watch your kid with his friends. If he is getting involved into some kiddy drama or acting as a famous actor then it is pretty clear that he/she is into acting or stage performance.Take him to the plays the kids of his age do and observe his reaction. Ask him whether he/she likes it or not. If yes, then enroll him/her in stage plays at school to learn more about theatre.

Kiwicrate helps the children develop and explore various things to make them aware of the talent that lies within them. The creativity and the curiosity just begins here. They engage children into activities and playdates. Now starting creative projects for your kid isn’t hard enough, all thanks to Kiwicrate.

Littlest Pet Shop Playsets – A Review

Littlest Pet Shop toys have always been a big hit in out house. We have the old pets that are magnetic and can stick on the refrigerator and are really cute.

When we received an opportunity to review Littlest Pet Shop sets, we didn’t waste time in saying yet.

We received two sets  – Blythe’s Bedroom and Littlest Pet Shop Style Set

Both the sets come with an amazing number of pieces that help you decorate the shop/bedroom and make it your own.

The Littlest Pet Shop Style set comes with over 135 pieces and 3 pets – Minka Mark, Kitery Banter and Sunil Nevla pets which are really sweet.

Blythe’s Bedroom includes Blythe and Penny Ling and over 95 pieces.

The sets are very easy to set up as the instructions are very clear. Once set up, you can use the easy glide panels to attach the Deco bits and give the set your own personal touch.

The deco bits are little shapes that can be attached to the holes in the panels so you can create patterns or stick them on at random to have each panel look different. I loved these ‘Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil’ deco bits.

As easy as they are to set up, they are that easy to take apart, which means that they are easy to store. This doesn’t mean that they fall apart when being played with as they are quite secure.

You can also stack them vertically or horizontally to create your own Littlest Pet Shop World.

lps3

There is a bonus – if you download the app on iOS or Android and scan the little mark on the pet, you can take the pet ‘into’ the app and have a play. This is quite an interesting part of the toys and I have been asked to get the whole set of figures so that they can have more pets to play with. (yeah, right!!)

The colours of the sets are pink and purple which would greatly appeal. I would say that the targeted age range is about right as the set up does require that you follow instructions.

P1000392

Full marks for quality as one expects from Hasbro.

The sets provide many hours of play as you can rearrange the sets to change the look as often as you like.

P1000390

I love the attention to detail – the little flowers, the lamps, the pet food.

The Littlest Pet Shop Style set is priced at around £39.99 and Blythe’s Bedroom at about £29.99
