Time to fly a kite!

A couple of weeks ago, while we were in Liverpool, we decided to take the kids to fly there kites that they bought from the shop at Speke Hall. It wasn't THAT windy but it was quite breezy. It took a few attempts for the kids to get the hang of it. Although, they have flown kites before, it was much easier because we were on a VERY windy beach, which made it easier.

ups and downs

Once they got the hang of it though, they thought it was really great fun and loved running along with the kite to try and catch the breeze! It was great fun watching them, bless. 

ups and downs

They were so proud of themselves once the kite was flying high in the sky! The kites almost got tangled together at one point. I wish my battery on my phone hadn't of died so I could have taken more photos. Actually, I should have taken my camera but forgot. Never mind.

fun with kites

It was really good fun, the kids had a wonderful time, as did I. It's really something all the family can join in on. They also had fun trying to catch the tail of the kite while it was high up in the sky, jumping and reaching for it, aww.

Kids kite flying

We're hoping to go kite flying again. On the beach next time though, when it's windy. I'll be sure to remember my camera next time!!!
Such fun.

How have you been enjoying the summer lately?

Football bookmarks kit {review}

review for yellowmoon

 Yellow moon sent us this lovely football bookmark kit to review. Anyone who reads my blog regually will know that all three of my children LOVE football, so this football bookmark kit was right up there street!

Yellow moon review

This bookmark kit comes in a pack of four. Four individually wrapped assorted book kits! Each kit contains four bookmarks - containing a foam template, self adhesive foam (football related) shapes and instructions. Each bookmark height is 18cm and there is no glue required! The book marks and shapes are brightly coloured which really appealed to my little ones. Ellie said "I love the colours! They look so great" And Charlie especially liked that the "grass" was mounted onto a larger piece of foam, bless him.

ups and downs, smiles and frowns

My little's really could not wait to try these and make themselves a bookmark!
Because the foam shapes are self adhesive, the back of each shape just peels off very easy and sticks onto the bookmark template. They really didn't need any help in making these and got stuck right into them. Ellie loved the "googley eyes" best apparently, hehe.

ups and downs, smiles and frowns

They made there bookmarks really easily themselves. It's a fun, quick, easy arts and crafts activity for any child (aged 5+), especially if they love football!
They're really proud of there football bookmarks and can not wait to show them off at school, when they go back in a few weeks, hehe.

Priced at just £3.95, I would say they are well worth the money. We would definitely recommend them. These would also make a lovely gift for any child that enjoys arts & crafts & being creative. My children really enjoyed making them.
(If only H would let me take his photo!)

Yellowmoon sell a very good selection of kids arts & crafts goodies, as well as many other products. All very reasonably priced, too!
