Now I don’t know if I’m a bad mother or what – but of late, I’m a bit erm…irritable around my kids. Yup. I’m not afraid to admit it. Cute, yes. Sweet, yes. Driving me up the wall, yes. Maybe it’s the fallout after a LONG summer and NOT LONG ENOUGH back at school!
WHATEVER, WHATEVER…but for any other parents out there who want something that’s NOT A SCREEN to keep their kids quiet (whatever happened to the saying ‘kids should be seen but not heard’????!!!) – here are some fabulous activity books and things to TURN THE VOLUME DOWN, or PREFERABLY OFF!
The brilliant brilliant 1000 Activities by Priddy Books is a snip at £5.99 from Amazon.
The FAAAAAAHBULOUS Usbourne Book of Drawing, Doodling and Colouring £5.49 from Amazon.
Monsters Inc? Who needs it! Love these wipe clean Monster Doodle Cards. £2.99 Amazon.
This one is a favourite of my budding FASHIONISTAS. £9.10 from Amazon.

And lastly, put NOSE-PICKING on the back burner with this! £5.49 Amazon….
