How to make heart shaped sugar cubes

One of the highlights of my days as the boys get older is afternoon tea.  Once they get home from school we sit down to after school snacks and a pot of tea.  I don't take sugar, however, the MIL always sugared the boys tea and they love adding a sugar lump, so we have mad fun making our own heart shaped sugar cubes. painted heart shaped sugar cubes Even better I love the fact that we have my mum's sugar tongs and bowl and it makes it such an experience. heart shaped sugar cubes

Weetabuddies – it is OK to play with your food!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet one in six kids in the UK do not eat breakfast.  I have two very different kids in this house, Maxi will not leave the house without breakfast and Mini would skip it given the chance.  So we jumped at the chance to become representatives for Weetabix and help promote their Weetabuddies campaign and have a go at creating our own Weetabuddy. Weetabix have created the ‘Weetabuddies’ to encourage families to get creative at breakfast whilst having a healthy start to the day. 10891588_10152734370568101_6559429063517595713_n So what is a Weetabuddy?  They are a range of characters to make breakfast a little more fun! You can meet all the characters here on the Weetabuddy site.
