#LoudnProud | 110216

Thursday, 11 February 2016

My favourite thing about this link is that it gives everyone the opportunity to share something that they are really proud of, to take note of an achievement or milestone no matter how big or small and to feel free to do so without being made to feel like it is wrong to enjoy and celebrate success - because it isn't, and now is your time to shout about it!

Whether it be weight loss or fitness progress, non-scale victories, getting your teenager to actually wear a coat to school, sports or musical achievements, first steps, first words, or even that the bloody dog has finally stopped chewing everyone's shoes - anything goes. If you're happy or proud about it, then come & share with us and let us celebrate with you.

Wish You Were Here? Become a #MarkWarnerMum (or #MarkWarnerDad!) for 2016

Friday, 5 February 2016

Just over a year ago we were fortunate enough to be selected as Mark Warner Holiday ambassadors for 2015. It was an amazing opportunity and we had the most fantastic break at the wonderful Lakitira Beach Resort in Kos, Greece in the October half term last year. Now it's 2016 and while I am sad that our turn as a Mark Warner family has come to an end I am delighted to share details of their search for this year's lucky families - could YOU be a #MarkWarnerMum or #MarkWarnerDad for 2016?

Our holiday with Mark Warner was the best family holiday we have been on, it was truly a fully inclusive experience for the whole family with something for everyone to enjoy, we have come away with lots of wonderful memories, new skills and new friends.

Mark Warner have all of the application details on their website, there are just four simple steps to the process, firstly what type of blogger are you? The serious foodie, Crafting King or Queen, the style guru, adventure junkie, fab photographer, creative writer? Have fun and be creative, and once you have completed your questionnaire and blog please tweet a link to your post tagging @MWHolidays and using the hashtag #MarkWarnerMum or #MarkWarnerDad by Friday 19 February to complete your entry.

Good Luck!

Disney Marvel Kids Interactive Website | Review

Wednesday, 3 February 2016

Having grown up with Disney myself it is wonderful to be able to share the magic with my own children, their stories and movies are well loved by us all and we have a sizeable DVD collection with the old favourites getting a regular outing on our family movie nights. The world of Disney is ever growing and now includes the Marvel Kids Interactive Website for fans of all things Marvel where you can find out more about favourite characters including Spider-Man and the Avengers, watch videos and even play games featuring your child's best loved Marvel hero. You can 'Bring the Thunder' with Thor, join the Avengers in 'Tower Rush' and even try out some web slinging with the amazing Spider-Man. The pages are divided into four sections - games, characters, activities, and videos, which allows your child to easily navigate where they want to go.

If you prefer to limit screen time or just want to keep something fun to hand for a rainy day or a long journey, there are several different Marvel themed printables available for free download in the activities sections including word searches, Sudoku, and mazes.

Internet safety is of course paramount and Disney also have a section dedicated to safety tips & information about how to help your child safely get the best from the net.

The Marvel Kids Interactive Website is a fun way to introduce superheroes to children in an age appropriate way, and allows them to learn about their favourite characters and really immerse themselves in the stories surrounding their special powers and abilities. As a fan of Hulk, H (10) enjoyed reading about how Bruce Banner came to become the 'Jade giant', and playing Gamma Storm Smash as his favourite cartoon hero.

Elsewhere on the website there are competitions as well as activities and games from all of your favourite shows and movies, and news about upcoming releases.
