Red Nose Day Funny Face's With Persil


To celebrate the launch of the limited edition funny faced Red Nose Day bottle of Persil, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher has teamed up with Persil to encourage families across the UK to make their faces funny by getting gunged for money,So the Sky Sports presenter braved 20 litres of bright blue gunge as she took part in a photo shoot to launch the campaign.


Kirsty Gallacher said: “When Persil asked me if I was game for a gunging, I thought why not? The shoot was great fun and the photos are hilarious. It’s for a really fantastic cause, so I’m urging the nation to get involved as well. Persil even tackles gunge, and with a donation from every limited edition funny faced bottle going to the charity - there’s no excuse for not having a go too!”

Excited and inspired we were delighted to get involved and, so with the help of Kirsty's simple gunge recipe we set out to have some messy fun.



Kirsty’s recipe to make gunge in the home.

Ingredients:
350ml of water
3 to 4 drops of blue paint powder. Kids powder paint is best for this, and can be bought cheaply on Amazon 
140g corn flour, available from all good supermarkets

Method: 
1. Add 350ml of tap water to a small saucepan and heat until the water is warm but not boiling. You do not want to use boiling water as you will have to wait for it to cool before you can use your hands to mix the gunge – and we appreciate that you’ll want to get gunging straightaway!
2. Pour 250 ml of the warm water into a bowl (leaving 100ml to one side). Add three to four drops of the blue powder paint until the water is about a shade darker than you want the gunge to be. When you make the gunge, the colour will become diluted slightly. Mix the water and paint well with a spoon, until fully mixed. 
3. Measure 140g of corn flour and place it into a separate large-sized bowl.
4. Pour the coloured water slowly into the bowl with the corn flour. And now for the fun bit… Get stuck in using your fingers to mix the ingredients together until you have a thick paste, and voila – you’re ready to gunge anyone who stands in your way!
Top tip: double the ingredients for double the gunging fun!

  Kirsty’s top tips for gunging:

1.Once the mixture is prepared let it cool for 20-30 minutes before you get messy and why not put your gunge into the fridge for a few minutes for an extra cold surprise!
2. Be sure to wear goggles during the gunging, and keep your mouth closed; it might help to make your face even funnier!
3.Remember to have a camera nearby. Your friends and family members are sure to pull funny faces when the gunge is poured over them, so take a picture to remember the event at a later date
4.Once you have prepared the gunge once, feel free to do it again using different colours, or maybe even some glitter! Go for a bright pink or orange for your child’s favourite colour, or to create a rainbow effect


The boys had the most amazing time playing with the gunge, which then quickly turned into a gunge fight, soon the whole entire kitchen and the boys were covered in light blue gunge. Although it was very messy it was great fun and we certainly will be making the gunge again.


As part of a £1 million donation from Unilever, Persil has produced a limited edition Persil small & mighty liquid bottle which sees its dosing ball swapped for a unique take on a Red Nose, and funny face.  To get involved, head to www.Persil.co.uk for more inspiration on how to make your face funny for money; buy the limited edition bottle; or text PERSIL to 70703 to donate £3. And don’t forget to share your funny faces on Twitter/Facebook using #RNDfunnyface.  


Persil believe that family fun and messy experiences should be embraced, which is why they are inspiring the nation to let loose and have fun with gunge. It’s the perfect way for families across the country to get involved.There are loads of other ways to get involved in Red Nose Day on the Persil website too.

But now Squid Soap have designed an amazing soap which will not only teach your children to wash their hands but will also encourage your children to wash their hands for the recommend time of  20 seconds which can prevent the spread of a harmful gems and bacteria.


What makes Squid Soap unique is that it comes with a small magic ink pad on the top soap pump, so when you push down you will get a small ink dot on your hand, this is then a fantastic reminder for your little one to lather up the soap and wash their hands for 20 seconds or until the ink has gone, this is a fantastic way to encourage children to was their hands thoroughly.


Squid Soap is PH neutral and gentle on little hands and the ink which is used is perfectly safe for all of the family as it is commonly used in food, so its perfect for keeping your hands clean and hygienic.


We were lucky enough to try Squeaky Squid which comes with yellow ink and has a light lemony scent, We really love the concept of Squid Soap my son has even given his approval and wants me to buy this soap all of the time.

Chill Factor Slushy Maker Review


My boys really love slushies, So we were super excited to test out The Chill Factor Slushy Maker, A cool and unique slushy maker which allows you to make delicious slushies in seconds,what is absolutely great is that you do not need any ice, blenders or fancy machinery, Its so simple and easy in a few simple steps

Step 1 - Leave your cool Chill Factor slushy maker in the freezer for 2-6 hours or overnight

Step 2  - Add your favourite squash 
Step 3  - Start squashing your Chill factor cup for around a minute and you will have an amazing slush in a minute.

We were really intrigued and couldn't wait to try, it was to good to be true, but we were so surprised at how simple and effective the Chill Factor was so easy and really cool that we could have a slush so quickly and simply with no mess or fuss. The squash started to form ice crystals, it was amazing to watch, and even better to taste.



So instead of buying slushies in the future we can now make our very own at home, I will certainly be buying a few more of the Chill Factor so we can all have our very own cup.



The actual cup comes comes apart for easy cleaning, Each Chill Factor comes complete with a  lid and a cool spoon straw all of which are reusable again and again,The cup itself is made of a very sturdy yet durable squashable rubber and inside sits the cooling pack, We are really impressed with the Chill Factor and totally love it. what a very cool product, my boys can now make their very own slush.
