STEAM AHEAD! DIY FOR KIDS: A Review

STEAM AHEAD! DIY FOR KIDS: A Review

In an age of tablets, laptops, androids and everything electronic it is easy for children to miss out on the skills of how to complete DIY activities and let’s face it, those of us who were kids when there weren’t devices are pretty rusty when it comes to these fun skills, well look no further…

Steam Ahead is an activity packed book for parents and kids aged 4-10, it introduces our kids to the magic of electronics, game and toy designing, printing, understanding basic scientific principles and most importantly, they’ll have a blast making them.

STEM or STEAM is an acronym and stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

If the fact that this book is on £1.57 for the kindle version and £7.87 for the paperback, but it is literally packed out with activities!

How often do we say that we buy kids expensive gifts and the end up making their own games out of the box or wrapping paper? Well now they have their very own guide of how to make their own games and it also improves their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

We know how hard it is to get kids to actually sit down and concentrate, well this guide gives them fun activities to create using their brains and hands which ultimately will improve their concentration skills, plus it’s a great bonding activity for parent and child or even for siblings/friends to do together and build their team work skills.

There are coloured difficult levels to work out what is best for which child, how great is that?! We all know kids develop at different levels and paces, now you have a guide of 1-5 difficult level.

What is even better is the activities are actually projects that kids WILL want to do, light up dance pads, pop up cards (great with Christmas around the corner), handmade soaps, bubble blowers, cloud lanterns etc. It’s so exciting!

The book also contains a list of materials so you can be prepared for doing the activities, there’s a full list at the back and short lists on each activities page, plus the activities themselves are short and easy to follow.

Kids like to move at a fast pace and it’s always best not to over complicate building new skills, so this guide is perfect for simplifying activities and making them easy to read.

The bright colours, great pictures and easy to read instructions make this the perfect guide for kids, with Christmas around the corner why not give your child the gift of skills and fun (plus it’s super cheap to buy).

Overall this book is the perfect activity filled, educational and most importantly fun guide you could get for yourself and your children, what are you waiting for…here are the links you need:

Christmas Gift Guide Request

It’s that time of year again!

I’m currently building my Christmas Gift Guide which will be released on the 1st December 2016.

In there will be some favourite toys that boys have tried and tested, but I need some companies to work with to fill it up!

So if you want your product to feature in my guide then get in touch!

I will also be having a section all about newborns, Nicole will be 3 months old by Christmas and both of my boys were very young at their first Christmas’s, it’s so hard to know what to buy for a newborn, but I’ll be helping all my readers get some great ideas.

Don’t hesitate, get in touch!

Merry Christmas! x

A break from blogging

So  I’ve had a bit of a break from blogging the last few months. I’ve really missed it and feel there are so many things I have missed recording about my little monkey’s.

To re-cap I have two little boys Jack (2.5 yrs) and Michael (1.5 yrs) and write about all the trials and tribulations of being their mummy. Since I stopped blogging things have changed quite a lot, I am now expect a baby GIRL!

I will talk about my pregnancy more in upcoming posts but I’m still in shock it is a girl!

I just wanted to write a quick post about why I haven’t been blogging for a while, there has been no major reason other than life just getting in the way.

So now I have my 2yr old, 1 yr old, 20 weeks Pregnancy and my wedding in 8 weeks! Safe to say I have plenty to write about…..

Halloween with kids ideas!

I had so many ideas for Halloween with the boys but unfortunately they got struck down with a sickness bug, they are recovering now, but since they are too young to understand Halloween I saw no need to dress them up when it would benefit them more having a cosy day in their PJs. Plus it’s the one night a month they spend at Nanny’s house, so they’re having a quiet one!

But saying that I do love Halloween and think kids are adorable dressed up for it! I really wanted to do Jack dressed as Chucky and Mikey as the baby from The Adam’s Family. I then saw a friend of mine on Facebook, Harriet, who has a baby the same age as Mikey, dressed her and her son Luca up for a Halloween competition and won 1st and 2nd Place!

Like me, Harriet likes to create a lot of homemade sensory activities for her son, she gets creative and look at the results!

Harriet was kind enough to let me use her pictures for this post!

So there you go a fun and creative way to dress up with your little on for Halloween.

If any readers have pictures of their cute little ones, comment with them or send them in via Facebook or Twitter!

Happy Halloween!
