LUCAS LOVES... LITTLE CAR BISCUITS 0

In our house the Tiny Teddy biscuit is a pretty popular treat.

We have gone one better and have Tiny Car biscuits.  Home made so we know what is in them, cute and easy to make.  That's more than one better isn't it?  I make that to be 3 or 4 better.

3 TIPS TO CREATE A CONSTRUCTION THEME CAKE 0

Parties are fun, but decorating the birthday cake can be a daunting task if you're not a baker, or don't feel like you're very creative.   I think I'm quite creative, but still the task of decorating a cake seems so foreign.

Let's be honest, there's so many wonderful, gorgeous cakes out there, the pressure that we put on ourselves can sometimes be crazy.  

Here are 3 tips to creating a great Construction theme cake. 

LUCAS LOVES.... RIVERS ROADS AND RAILS 0

River Roads and Rails game for 6 yr olds

Rivers, Roads and Rails game is a huge favourite in our house at the moment.

The idea behind the game is really simple.  Each tile has a variety of the River, Road or Rail. Some tiles have all three, others might have the River stopping at a Dam or a tunnel where the Rail starts.  

LUCAS LOVES.... MONZA 0

MONZA Race Board Game -  The colourful wooden racing cars weave back and forth as they speed around the track on their race to the finish line.

The wooden dice and the cutest cars makes this board game a stunning visually as well as a fun game to play. Even Lucas was entranced by the little cars.

NOT JUST BATH TOYS 0

We have an old house and we don't have a bath.  For a long time Lucas was washed in the laundry tub, then he outgrew that and we put a plastic bath at the bottom of the shower for his bath time.

Now he is really good at having a shower and he mostly enjoys it.   Usually he takes a car in there to drive around the walls.  The colour changing cars that change with the water temperature were the best thing to get him into the shower for a while.
