Easter Fun!

With Easter not far off, I thought I’d give you some ideas for activities and gifts for your little ones. With my little girl only being seven months old, Chocolate is out so I’ve been hunting around for some other alternatives. Here are some lovely things that I came across:

I popped over to Precious Parcels as they always have lovely gifts, but if you have a look you’ll have the same problem as me in deciding as each and every item is gorgeous. If I really had to choose I think I’d go with the Personalised Wooden Blocks

If you and your little ones like doing crafts there’s a whole range of craft kits over at Yellow Moon

Books are always a great alternative to an Easter Egg. Here are a few Easter themed books that I found:

Where are Baby’s Easter Eggs
Spots First Easter
If I were the Easter Bunny
What is Easter?
Happy Easter Maisy

Aww this is lovely. An Egg and Soilder Breakfast Set from Not on the High Street and a talking Easter Bunny from Born Gifted.

Of course, we shouldn’t stray away from the real meaning of Easter and many families will be heading to church to celebrate the event. For us as a family, it’s a time that we spend together and when our son was younger he used to enjoy crafting and baking, but these days unless it flashes out from a wide screen or can be controlled with an X-box controller, it’s “boring”. We’ll have our time again though when Isabelle is older and able to partake. I found a few ideas that you could do with your little ones.

An Easter Chick Napkin Ring
There’s quite a few craft ideas at Good To Know including Easter Tree Decorations, Easter Garlands and Easter Gift Tags.
Easter Hats and Chicks
And lots of crafty ideas on www.littlecraftybugs.co.uk

If cooking’s your thing then have a look at these great recipes:

Iced Easter Biscuits
There’s a selection of recipes on the Net Mums website
Simnel Cake
Chocolate Nests
Hot Cross Buns

We will of course be doing our usual tradition of the Easter Egg Hunt which as much as our son will huff and puff he will love. We’re keeping ours quite basic this year, but on our last trip up to Tesco’s we were very impressed with the selection of Easter Egg Hunt accessories including eggs and baskets. Whatever you decide to do with your family, we hope you have a lovely day.

We have Gumigems!

It seems that our little one has been teething since about two and a half months with stillĀ  no appearance from any peggies! We’ve tried all sorts including traditional teething rings, she has numerous toys with teething bits on them, Bickipegs, and she likes nothing better to chomp on a finger or two.

The other thing that she’s become quite obsessive with is necklaces. She’s already managed to break two of my chains and has nearly strangled her daddy grabbing at his chain. Whilst searching for alternative teething aids, I stumbled across Gumigem teething necklaces. I’d heard of breastfeeding necklaces but was quite fascinated behind the concept of having something that looked stylish that I liked but was also functional, and lets face it all babies want what’s yours! So there you have the story behind the introduction of Gumigem Teething Necklaces.

Whilst the pendant looks hard, it’s actually made from similar material that most baby teethers are made from. They are BPA, PVC, lead, latex and phthalate free, and can be popped in the dishwasher and even sterilised. They also have a breakaway clasp for additional comfort.

This particular Gumigem has also been worn by Denise Van Outen with baby Betsy, and ME!
