Having fun with the #HandAScavengerHunt

I love a challenge and it sure was to find the items on the #HandAScavengerHunt. Tots100 and H&A have come up with a fun summer activity for us grown ups. It is to find the following items;

  1. Something blue
  2. A rainbow
  3. Something that grows
  4. A summer creepy crawly (butterflies, ladybirds, beetles)
  5. A circle
  6. A red front door
  7. A ball
  8. Something on wheels
  9. H&A Frozen Olaf Bath & Shower Bubbles
  10. H&A Frozen Olaf Colour Change Wash Mitt

Then all you do is write a blog post and share it on Twitter or Instagram tagging @tots100 and using the hashtag #HandAScavengerHunt. It is worth entering as the prize is heaps of Frozen goodies my daughter would love.

This is my entry for @Tots100 and H&A’s scavenger hunt.

Walk The Plank With A Turkey Galleon boat for the #TurkeyTractorChallenge

When I saw that there was a British Turkey & Red Tractor Recipe Challenge we just had to take part. We were cutting it fine time-wise so unfortunately I don’t think there is any more time to enter. Usually I enter ahead of time so I can encourage other people to take part, but sorry not this time.


Red Tractor food standards cover a range of UK products, including meat, dairy, cereals and fruit and vegetables. Just look for the logo on pack to ensure that the product has been produced to some of the most comprehensive and respected standards in the world. The logo ensures food is traceable, safe to eat and has been produced responsibly – from farms to fork! More info can be found at www.redtractor.org.uk. This challenge is designed to help raise awareness of The Red Tractor logo.

I really wondered what to do for this; often pirate themed food fits more of a dessert theme rather than a main course. So I set the children thinking, in the end they decided that we should make a galleon boat; ambitions; yes! Anyway, they loved getting dressed up for the occasion and pretending to help! So we decided to use Red Tractor turkey mince which we combined with onions, mushrooms and parsley. It is a simple recipe which the children also enjoy baking with chicken or sausage meat. So they followed the recipe and then we decorated the galleon afterwards. Here is the result!

Anyone for tennis?

We are definitely not the sportiest of families; but my girls and I dance and the boys enjoy BMX and hubby loves road biking. We were looking for things to do over the summer so when I noticed the Tots100 competition to try tennis I thought it was a great idea for a day out. I popped into the shops and picked up some rackets and tennis balls and headed to the nearest court which for us is next to the playground. It was deserted!

This weekend (1st & 2nd August) was the last weekend of the Great British Tennis Weekend, run by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) where clubs all over the country opened their doors to give anyone the chance to play tennis for FREE.

As a result of our hours worth of tennis my son now wants lessons! We had a great time and every time we drive past the courts I end up getting asked when we can next play. We followed up the playing with some strawberry picking and some traditional strawberries and cream in the park. A superb days activities and 3 happy exercised and well fed children can’t be bad!
