Boo and I have been in the Halloween Spirit for a while now, we have been making lots of lovely things including Spooky Halloween Puppets and a Giant Witch. So when I saw that Kate over at Crafts on Sea had created an eBook called 30 Halloween Crafts of Kids I jumped at the chance to have a look!
There is a whole range of activities in the book – and the only issue I had was deciding which Boo and I should try first! Kate says in her introduction that these crafts are ‘designed to be easy, simple and most importantly fun’ and she gets it right! Boo is 2 and wants to be involved in everything when we are crafting, and for some crafts we do it’s not always possible. For most of these crafts Boo could be the driving force and she had so much more fun! Read More…
I love this time of year, it’s time to get crafty, go on at least a hundred conker hunts and do lots and lots of reading. I must confess I have gone a bit mad recently and bought tons of new books for both Boo and myself (getting ready to hibernate over the winter – so that’s ok right?). I thought I would share 10 of the best Halloween Books for toddlers that we have discovered this year, as who doesn’t love a good ghost story?!
It’s been ages since I have shared the books we have loved so I thought it was about time I did one! This month has been a bit spooky already – getting in the spirit for Halloween I think! I will be sharing some of the best Halloween themed books for toddlers next week so keep an eye out for that! But here are the books we’ve read this month.
We have been so lucky this month, to have been sent such wonderful books to review – Boo is very pleased indeed! One of the books we have been asked to have a look at is Sausage and Chips in Space by Rick Joyce and illustrated by Cassie Gregory.
I love finding a new author or series that I love (I can’t wait to share my post for September’s Books we’ve loved!), and the same goes for children’s books too – I love finding something that I know Boo is going to love. And when it’s a new author there is the added excitement of discovering the other books that they have written. When I was asked if I would like to review Molly Maybe and the Ghost Train I jumped at the chance as I am always on the look out for new books for Boo and I to read together.
Molly Maybe and the Ghost Train is a large paperback book which is aimed at children aged 3+ so Boo is a little bit on the young side, yet it has not stopped her thoroughly enjoying the book and she loves the illustrations. The added fun of the special pages which need the book to be turned around or opened up are such a great feature and she always gets excited when we reach those pages. Read More…
