Chalkola Pens Review

My daughters love anything arty so when we were offered the chance to review some chalk markers, we were happy to give them a try. We were sent 2 packs by Chalkola, who are also offering my readers a 15% saving on purchases.

Chalkola chalk markers are designed to work on blackboards, whiteboards, glass, plastic and other non-porous surfaces. We tried them out on our chalk board, which is a wooden cupboard door that we coated in blackboard paint a couple of years ago, and on a small handheld blackboard. (more…)

Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers for Kids

It’s only 2 weeks to go until the big day – and those Christmas preparations are in full swing! Presents have been bought, the tree is up, the turkey is ordered and now it’s down to sorting out those finishing touches. But while the presents for under the tree may have been bought, what about stocking fillers? It was an orange and a pack of knickers when I was little, but I think my five year old would think Father Christmas had lost it if he was leaving fruit and underwear in her stocking! So instead he will be leaving a few little toys, bubbles, and some chocolate coins. If you are still looking for some inspiration, here’s a roundup of some small gifts that would be perfect to find in those stockings on Christmas morning.
