Join us for a Plasticine Softeez Twitter Party

We have had a very exciting delivery of some fantastic Plasticine Softeez goodies in advance of the Twitter Party which we will be hosting next week on Wednesday 5th August from 2-4pm. The party is to showcase the new Plasticine Softeez range for Autumn/Winter from Flair which is aimed at children ages 3-7 years. New Plasticine Softeez has the stability of original Plasticine and still never dries out, but is softer and easier to model with than the original which makes it perfect for little hands. Here's a sneak peak of what we will be playing with during the party.

I have to say I am really excited about this party as the pack is awesome with so many fun games and activities to play during the party. I loved Plasticine as a kid so I can't wait to see how Plasticine Softeez compares. If you would like to join us and see what we think of the range make sure you are following @mmeeee and @UKMumsTV on Twitter and search for the #PlasticineSofteez hashtag, there will be plenty of opportunities to win prizes and get involved in the fun. 

Paw Patrol: Marshall and Chase on the Case DVD & Activity Sheets

We are big Paw Patrol fans here so were only too happy to review the latest Paw Patrol DVD Marshall and Chase on the Case which was released today, the 27th July.

The latest Paw Patrol Adventures

Join Ryder and his pup pals on their heroic adventures in eight brand new episodes, when family favourite Paw Patrol: Marshall and Chase on the Case scampers onto DVD from 27th July.

This action-packed preschool adventure series from Nickelodeon and loved by parents and children alike returns as the perfect summer holiday watch. Starring six brave pups - Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Zuma, Rubble, and Skye, this time they undertake a new batch of educational escapades led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder.

Having burst onto our screens for the first time last year, teaching that there is no adventure too big and no pup too small, the Paw Patrol delighted children and their parents, and this summer their amazing activities are back again. From fighting fire and rescuing monkeys to aiding baby owls, the Paw Patrol is always on guard in Adventure Bay. Marshall, a clumsy firefighting pup, is all action, but combined with Chase - the leading police pup - they make the perfect duo to tackle any problem – as long as it does not involve cats or feathers, because Chase is horribly allergic!

No matter how big the task, the fun-loving friends will always have smile on their faces. But have they finally met an obstacle they cannot overcome? When Ryder goes on a hike along Big View Trail he gets into trouble – will he be able to rally the troops in time?

Get ready for the must-have DVD for little boys and girls, when family favourite Paw Patrol: Marshall and Chase on the Case arrives on the 27th July. You can watch the trailer below.

Fun Activity Paw Patrol Sheets 

To keep your little Paw Patrol fans entertained this summer there are also some fun activity sheets available to download from here. We love the colouring sheets and the Spot the Difference, great for the recent rainy days we have had.

*Disclaimer: I received a copy of Paw Patrol: Marshall and Chase on the Case on DVD.

My Little Legoland Driver - 204/365

First day of the school holidays today so we headed to Legoland. We love it there, so much to see and do it's always a fun day out. The highlight for Ben today was getting his driving licence after whizzing about the driving school course. We also checked out the new Lego Friends show in Heartlake City which the kids enjoyed, especially the twins who were clapping and dancing along to the songs. We never made it to the duplo Splash park so that's definitely on our hit list for our next visit.

365 Catch up: 191/365 - 203/365

Sports Day - 191/365

Ben's first school sports day was lots of fun for all the family and ended with a picnic on the field which was perfect for such a sunny day. 

Teepee Time - 192/365
With such lovely sunny weather it was definitely time to get the teepee out. 

Jungle Explorers - 193/365
The Twinkies and Ben are loving their new "secret club" hidden in the trees in the back of the garden. 

Giddy Up - 194/365
Everything is more fun when you have a twin around to share it with. 

Big Brother Hugs - 195/365
They do love each other. 

First Pigtails - 196/365
A certain little girl insisted she had her hair in pigtails and was ever so proud of herself when she did. 

Twos - 197/365
Two hats, two cars, two shoes (his twin sister's) - yep it's all about the twos today.

Some Light Reading - 198/365

Zoey picked up one of Daddy's books today and didn't want to leave it down. 

Sleepy Heads - 199/365

My little Twinkies, as close as can be. 

Party Princess - 200/365

Our little princess Zoey dancing about in her party dress on the farm today. Loving that her hair has finally started to grow and she has curls too like Zachary and Ben. 

Cheeky Monkeys - 201/365

The twins at school pick up time looking forward to collecting their big brother. 

Cowboy Ben - 202/365

For the past week or so I have been hearing Ben tell me about the cowboy outfit they were making in his class for the school fashion show and how one of the kids would get to model it on the day.  He was very pleased with himself when it turned out he was the one who got to wear it and strut his stuff in front of the school. I think Reception Year did an amazing job and I'm very proud of my little cowboy Ben. 

School's Out - 203/365

Finally it's the last day of Reception. I think we are all very much ready for the six weeks holidays. Looking back at photos from the first and last day of Ben's Reception Year it's clear to see he has changed a huge amount in the past 46 weeks, no longer baby faced, he's a real little boy now.

Water Play - 190/365

Zachary loves nothing better than playing outside with trucks, boats, water and shovels. He was in his element today playing with his dumper truck and a a big plastic boat, shovelling water from one to the other.
