The Best of the Mummy blogs – Issue 5

BOTB5

Welcome back to #BOTB – our wrap up of the top five Mummy Blogs from the past week.

This week, Planning With Kids nominates 3 education apps you kids should be introduced to, comedian Adam Hills starts the #Smelfie movement, and Be a Fun Mum shows us a simple Easter recipe equivalent to a Christmas gingerbread house.

Let’s recap…

1. 3 of the best educational iPad apps for primary school kids, Planning With Kids

If it’s difficult to tear your children away from their iPod or iPad, have a look at these 3 educational apps that help reinforce learning. They each focus on a different key learning area – times tables, phonics and grammar. If your children’s grubby fingers are constantly getting your devices dirty, try our smudgi sticky screen cleaner to easily clean off little fingerprints.

2. The rainbow surprise cake that is going viral, Kidspot

If you haven’t seen this cake in your social feed somewhere this week, you’ve been living under a rock (or you’re a busy parent and you’ve got better things to do which is probably the more likely scenario). If you haven’t seen it, here it is – pretty pastels mixed up in the shape of a cake heart. Keep the kids clean whilst they help you put this tasty cake together with our personalised Aprons.

3. Managing after school activities, Planning with Kids

Planning with Kids is kicking goals this week (pun intended) with another article making our top 5 – how to plan your children’s after school activities more efficiently. Our Family activity planners can be a big help to keep track of who needs to be where and when.

4. The #Smelfie movement, Adam Hills (recap by Mashable)

After Australian comedian Adam Hills posted a picture of himself changing his daughter’s nappy and tagged #smelfie, the movement went viral. Hills wanted to encourage more dads to change nappies – go Adam!

5. Easter Chick Houses, Be a Fun Mum

An Easter alternative to a Christmas Gingerbread house, The Easter Chicky Birdhouse. The kids are sure to start getting excited about the Easter Bunny coming soon with these around the home. See our 2015 Easter range to help continue the Easter vibes around the home.

Join us again next week for the #BOTB round up.
