Recently, we came across Qixels at a local shop and grabbed Mr K’s attention immediately. They are almost like beados and fuse together once dried! Qixels are small cubes which can be used to make pictures/characters and then you use water to fuse them together. This is suitable for aged 4 and above.
As an ex-nurse, I have always believed that everyone should learn the basic first aid principles as it is an essential life skill which could be very helpful to people around you. That belief has deepened since I became a mother as I realised that it is essential for every parent/carer to learn baby and child first aid. Babies and children are so accident prone – I have lost count how many times I have needed to apply first aid for both of my young children.
Did you know that you can learn first aid with British Red Cross (BRC) online and through courses around the UK? If you would like to learn more about the app and courses (suitable for parents who have kids aged between 0-12 years old), click on the link here.

Are you having a girly birthday party or a pretend spa day with your children? Orbeez Hand Spa might be the answer! This is an ultimate spa experience for your little one. It features a whirlpool of swirling Orbeez plus a 3 in 1 hand and nail care tool.
The hand spa measures 30.5cm x 9cm x 25.5cm. It is suitable for children aged 5 and above. It requires 4 AA batteries to power the waterfall. Setting it up is very simple and straightforward. Make sure you have a hand towel nearby to clean up all the water drips. After installing the batteries, press the waterfall spout into the slot in the basin until it fits snug. Fill the hand spa basin with clean water and pour in water beads but do not overfill the basin with too many water beads. Turn it on and you will see the water beads and water swirl around the spa and the water will cascade down the waterfall. Rest your hands inside the hand spa basin and massage your hands by playing with the water beads or using the nail care tool. Then take your hand out to dry before you buff your nails.
