The Cool Food School Cooking Utensils
My daughter is almost 5 years old and she has recently taken a very keen interest in helping me to cook. I really want her to get involved but a lot of the knives and peelers I use are far too sharp for her to go near so she has to stick with pouring etc which she isn't happy about of course. So when I spotted these fabulous cooking utensils from The Cool Food School I thought they were brilliant. There's a great safety food peeler which means children can help peel carrots and potatoes without the worry of their fingers getting hurt. The kiddies food kutter is also fab, it's strong enough to cut but the knife has rounded teeth so no sharp edges. I love them both and can't wait to give them to Harlow so she can finally join me in cooking the dinner. The safety food peeler and kiddies food kutter are £10 each and can be purchased online from The Cool Food School. Definitely something different and a great way to encourage independence and a love of food in the kitchen.
Living Twig Indian Stick Insect Kit
I absolutely loved keeping stick insects as a kid. Myself and my friend would hatch the eggs and go out on a hunt round our neighbourhood to find them food. They were good times and it brings back lots of happy memories. I'm glad to see you can still buy something very similar today with this cool Living Twig Indian Stick Insect Kit from Gifts For Little Hands. At only £15 it's sure to bring hours of enjoyment plus it's a great way to introduce young children to a very easy to keep pet. It'll help them learn responsibilities of looking after something which is alive and they are pretty cool. This kit comes with a little habitat to keep your new pets in so it can be used again and again.
Greener Beauty Gift Set
Something I always love to receive for my kids at Christmas time is a nice gift set. We use up shampoo, toiletries and bath bombs so quickly in our house. The kids love them but it's not always a gift people would think of giving. I love this Bobo's Bath Fun Gift Box from Greener Beauty. It has some lovely Child's Farm Shampoo, Konjac Pore Refiner and a Rainbow Waffle Bath Bomb. My kids would love this and definitely use it all at bath times. Priced at £18.00 it comes in a beautiful box with a £10 gift card to spend online at Greener Beauty. Such a nice gift to give.
Tender Leaf Toys Stacking Garden Friends
I do love a wooden toy, they always seem to be eco friendly not to mention super sturdy. It doesn't matter if they get dropped or bashed as they always seem to survive the onslaught of little hands. That's why this Tender Leaf Stacking Garden Friends toy is the perfect gift this Christmas. It comes in a drawstring bag, perfect for storage, and is full of cute garden creatures ready to stack and play. At £20 it's a perfectly priced gift that'll last through the ages. It's the kind of toy you keep and give to your grandchildren etc. It's available to buy from the lovely Le Jeux Boutique so head over to their website and check it out.
