Christmas Snowflake the magical read by Wonderbly

Christmas is just weeks away!

Can you believe that just a few weeks, we have been looking forward to it all year round and now it’s here I need more time to prepare.

If you anytime like us Christmas Eve is just as magical as the day it’s self, it’s the day were we all prepare for the big man in red to visit and drop all the presents. We have a routine on Christmas Eve where we leave out reindeer food for them to see our house, the children unwrap new pyjamas to go to bed in, we leave out Mince Pies and a drink for Santa then watch a Christmas Film before bed.

This year we have decided to read a Christmas story to the children but finding the right one was more difficult than we thought as there are hundreds of them, all of them with the same sort of story lines. I wanted something my children would remember we did as a tradition, a story that they could read to their children, something that would make the holiday special.

I looked online and saw a company called Wonderbly who do personalised books for children and there newest book is called The Christmas Snowflake, the title sounded interesting so I had a look, on the site I was able to add the names of all the members of the family into the story line.

This story has it all, excitement, magic, something that all the family can relate to and the very end is a decoration we can place onto our Christmas Tree which I though was an amazing touch and something we could keep and place on our tree every year.

Page after page is filled with Christmas joy keeping the attention of kids as they follow their own journey throughout the story

I can’t wait to read this to my children on Christmas Eve to get them in the mood for Santa so they can go to bed excited, it’s not just a story book it’s a memory that we can keep forever to look back on when they were younger and read it to their children some day.

Pretty Gifted Wrapping…Pretty Good Idea

Christmas is coming fast around the corner and getting in your wrapping paper in now is a pretty good idea as we all know how much of a pain it is when you do all your shopping, get it home and suddenly you remember you didn’t pick the paper.

I come across a company called Pretty Gifted, they do personalised wrapping paper to your needs for any occasion not just for Christmas you can use it for Birthdays or a surprised gifts.

I had a look on their website  and it was really simple and easy to use, I put in the message I wanted, the colour I wanted it to be written in and just checked out.

The long parcel arrived I opened it like an excited child to see what I had made, it turned out a lot better than I had expected.

The paper was glossy and thick (don’t you just hate it when you at the end of wrapping something and your finger goes through the paper!!) I wrapped what I needed and there was plenty to spare for future gifts.

I was so impressed by the quality of this Pretty Gifted paper that I’m going to have to order some more when my teen hit a certain age (just for embarrassments sake)

I highly recommend it for personal gifts your going to gift just so it has that personal loved tough before they have even unwrapped it.

Children happy with Appy Drinks

If your children is anything like mine then they go through so much juice in a week all sorts of flavours and all sorts of brands.

The juices we tend to get our children (there’s 5 of them bear in mind) the large bottles for a couple of quid and even then getting them all to decide on a flavour they actually collectively like is a mission and a half.

The big ones like strong juice where as my little ones like the cartons and pouches which is easier because there are no spills or accidents, also I may stress at this point I have fussy little ones so getting them to drink the pouches is hard when they don’t believe you what flavour is inside.

I stumbled across Appy drinks a company that do pouch juices of all flavours for children, the difference being the covers are of cartoon characters and children’s TV shows, so I thought that I would give them a go.

The parcel arrived and in it was boxes filled with pouches of juice, the boxes were bright and colourful with children’s TV shows on them, there was Dora the Explorer, TMNT and Freddie’s favourite show Paw Patrol.

Once the kids saw the characters on the juice its didn’t matter what flavours they was they were more than happy to try them!

They came in Orange, Apple and Mixed Fruits. The children loved them from our 1-year-old to the teenagers, they tasted great and were low in sugar so I didn’t have to worry about how much juice they were drinking.

Before I knew it they were all gone and I didn’t even get a look in at trying one, I shall defiantly be getting these again and shall be trying the children’s snacks they do also.

The elder kids rated them 10 out of 10

The little ones rated them 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 20 out of 10
