Nestle Creepy Crawly Campaign


Nestle carried out some very interesting research which revealed the challenges parents face in ensuring their kids get the vitamins and minerals they need. Unbelievably, 47% of children have munched on creepy crawlies from the garden, yet 71% refuse to eat a plate of greens, Bugs that topped the list included: worms, caterpillars and snails. So Nestle decided to build a 10ft long caterpillar, made from cereal to tour the UK, helping to show there is there is an easier way to get a whole bowl of good stuff other then munching on a creepy crawly.


As part of Nestle Creepy Crawly campaign,We have been challenged to get creative and make our very own bug using a range of crafts and Nestle Cereals. We were super excited and after munching our way though s few boxes of of favourite cereal, we decided to create our very own Nestle Spider.


You will need
Mini box of Nestle Cereal
4 Pipe Cleaners for the legs
2 Pom Poms
2 Googly eyes
Paint (any colours of your choice)
Some foam shaped pieces or coloured paper to decorate
PVA Glue
Sellotape

How to make
Step 1 - Attach the pipe cleaner legs to the Nestle cereals box using sellotape
Step 2 - Paint your spider and allow to dry



Step 3 - Once dry glue on googly eyes and foam pieces to create desired design



Step 4 - Allow glue to dry, and there you have it your very own Spider. Why don't you have a try and get creative and make your very own bug.






We were given the Nestle Cereals and crafts to help us join in this cool campaign.

Nintendo Wii U - Kirby And The Rainbow Paintbrush


We love getting creative, so to help celebrate the release of Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush on Wii U , We created our very own clay Kirby and had the opportunity to play Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush before its released on the 8th May.


Kirby's latest adventure See's Kirby on a mission to defeat the evil Claycia who has drained Dream Land of all it colour, you the game player need to help Kirby and his friends bring back Dream Land, by exploring the world of clay you can help Kirby tackle obstacles to hunt the collectibles to enable you to move through each level to turn Dream Land back to its full glory.


Playing the game was great fun, you simply tap and draw rainbow lines and hoops to help Kirby travel through each level, ensuring you take out the enemies along the way, the only thing is that you have a limited amount of rainbow rope, so you have to be aware of your rainbow rope power line at the top of the screen to make sure that you don't leave Kirby in a tricky situation.



What we really loved about this game is that the main player plays via the Wii U Gamepad, but up to three players can  join in using Wii controllers to play as Kirbys friend Waddle Dees, this gives Kirby a help hand on his fun adventure.


We really loved playing this cool game, it was great fun to play and we loved collecting the stars and progressing though each level, and are really looking forward to completing the game,The graphics were bright and colourful and kept you hooked wanting to explore more, We really loved using the rainbow ropes to move Kirby through the game. you also have the option to use the Kirby Amiibo at certain stages of the game.


After some cool game play, We were really inspired to create our very own clay Kirby, It was great fun to get messy and see what we could create.
If you need some inspiration then check out Nintendo/Activities for more on how you can create your very own clay Kirby as well as this cool step by step video below.


We had the most amazing time creating our very own clay Kirby and even more fun playing Kirby and The Rainbow Paintbrush.

BullGuard releases free guide for parents to help protect their children online





A Parents’ Guide to Protecting Children Online outlines threats, safeguards and offers advice to help parents provide a safe online platform for kids
London, 16th April 2015: BullGuard, an award-winning global provider of internet and mobile security solutions, has released an informative and thought-provoking guide for parents who may be concerned about keeping their children safe online.

Including reaction to its own recently completed survey, which highlighted parental concerns surrounding effective monitoring of a child’s online activity, the helpful guide outlines the growing need to safeguard children in an online age that’s being driven by increasing use of devices like smartphones and tablets.


Offering tips and advice on how to approach a difficult subject, A Parents’ Guide to Protecting Children Online describes key concerns from a survey of 2,000 UK parents to outline the current situation many face in the digital age. It includes information on how to manage a child’s natural curiosity, the rise of social networking and the reasons why so many struggle to stay one step ahead. Various scenarios that many children might face, such as “stranger danger”, infection from viruses and malware and real modern issues such as cyber-bullying are investigated to help better understand how these problems can be avoided.

Throughout the guide, parents will be introduced to the basics of security for children and will learn how to put measures in place to ensure that they are being protected. The importance of education for children, and to help them better understand the potential consequences of their actions is emphasised, and it’s shown how communication rather than avoidance is a better way of helping kids to enjoy a healthy and rewarding experience online that can enrich social interest and enhance learning.

A Parents’ Guide to Protecting Children Online is available to download for free.

Celebrate With #PabloThePug


We have had the most wonderful Easter half term and what better way to end it, then to celebrate our last Friday of the half term with a mini party with Pablo The Pug.


With the help from ASDA we gathered together for some fun family and games and of course no celebration would be complete without cake.

 

Pablo the Pug is an awesome NEW celebration cake which had just been launched by ASDA, This cute looking Pablo The Pug cake not only looks amazing but it tastes absolutely delicious.


Made with a delicately soft sponge and filled with delicious buttercream and raspberry jam, covered and decorated with soft icing and edible decorations, Every party most defiantly needs a Pablo Pug cake.



We really love this awesome cake, it defiantly had to be on of our all time favourite cakes, normally most celebration cakes come flat with imprinted images or 2D icing but this cool cake looks amazing and tastes delicious. why not party with Pablo The Pug only available at Asda online and instore for only £10.



Pablo loves a party... dancing, eating cake, pinning tails on (paper) donkeys... What's not to like? One day, Pablo had a problem - he'd been invited to two parties at once! He didn't know what to do so he put his thinking party hat on and tried to come up with a solution. After hours of thinking, Pablo dreamed up the perfect answer - cake! He trotted into the kitchen, put on his pinny and baked the world's yummiest, scrummiest cake and decorated it so it looked exactly like him. 'Now I can go to both parties!' laughed Pablo.



 We were given Pablo The Pug cake to taste and share, All thoughts are honest and of that of our own.

We headed down the winding staircase to Cocoa Vault and was greeted warmly by the staff, The children donned on their aprons and we were introduced to the Chocolate process and how the delicious Chocolate that we know and love is made, We had the opportunity to taste a Cocoa Bean as well as the tempered chocolate, delicious.
