3 of the best tablets for kids and toddlers for Christmas

 

The Leap Pad 2 and Leap Pad Ultra

 

The Leap Pad Ultra [review] It's around 129 pounds exclusive to John Lewis in the UK however we saw Argos also advertising it for much less we think they may be confusing the models so check ! Of note the Ultra has the following feature set: Strong enough for a toddler. 11 apps out of the box with access to 500 more online to buy. Child friendly controls (our 2 year old has some grasp of an iphone but lets face it you want something a little easier) Headphones Up to 9 hours battery life. 7 inch screen with a good 1024x600 resolution Safe ring fenced internet and chat apps that are limited to set dialogues to choose from.

To consider : The leap pad 2 is like a mini version of this without the wifi, not as great at touch sensitivity but still a great tablet for your toddler. Maybe this represents better value.

Bad Points: It looks like a kids toy (toddlers want the adult looking stuff don’t they) I think its design is actually spot on and not too toy like. But just 2 colours to choose from. Misuse of transformer can cause shock!

Breaking up for the Summer

Breaking up for the Summer

Soon enough, your children will be finishing school for one more year and breaking up for the summer. Whether your child is moving up a year or leaving school to go onto college, their school is likely to throw a party to celebrate everybody’s achievements from the past year. These end of year parties are great for your children to let their hair down, celebrate their achievements from the year and to look forward to what the future has in store for them.

 

All children love a good party whether they are 5 or 15 as it is a great time to socialise with friends, eat copious amounts of buffet food and to dance the night away to some of the best party songs in history – Cha Cha Slide anyone?!

 

School discos are also the perfect excuse for girls to dress up in their favourite party frocks and cute heels ready for a night on the dance floor. With a special event coming up, it is always nice to buy a pretty new outfit for the occasion. Everybody loves slipping into something new that they love and feel comfortable in as it usually adds a whole new dimension of confidence in a person.

Keep your Children entertained during the Holidays

Keep your Children entertained during the Holidays

With half term and summer holidays cropping up here, there and everywhere, it can be difficult to keep your children entertained. There are many different ways you can keep your kids amused during the holidays when you are short on cash. Whether you purchase a chunky colouring book from the pound shop along with some crayons or give them some crafty bits such as cardboard and let them run wild with their imaginations, there’s always something you can please them with when you have run out of places to take them. One of the most exciting aspects that I remember from being a child is cooking and baking with my mother. We use to make a great range of delicious foods including pies, pizzas and sugary snacks. Of course, being a child I use to love baking cakes, biscuits and trifles.

 

 

Cooking with your child is a great experience for both yourself and your children. Not only will it help to keep them entertained during the long school holidays, it will also enable you to teach them the fundamentals of basic cooking methods. You will also be able to utilise the food you make and use it for future family meals to ensure nothing goes to waste. Purchasing your catering supplies won’t cost the earth either as the majority of ingredients you will probably have in your kitchen already including eggs, flour and milk. Making cupcakes with your children is a fantastic option as they will be able to have fun decorating them with icing and hundreds and thousands.
