Introducing Club Hub UK

My little Robot is 10 months old now and it’s safe to say that I am thoroughly in the swing of things.  Day in day out, we have a routine, we know where we have to be and when.  We’re like a little team! There was a time however where …

Ice Play

Ice Play It’s probably not the best time of the year to tackle this project.  It’s been sleeting outside on and off all week so not the warmest.  Plough on regardless!  I’ve been making ice all week especially to do this.  I went to the freezer this morning and Dave …

Two Tiny Hand Painting

Hand Painting We got given a hand painting present as a birth present for the Robot.  It sat on the side for about six weeks, I was eager to use it.  The trouble with new-born babies hands is that they are clasped tight shut.  They don’t open them to make …

Play Your Home-Made Guitar

The Robot loves his maracas and he loves a good drum on anything he can hit.  Now it’s time to introduce string, more importantly my home-made guitar.   All you need is a baking tin and elastic bands.  Put bands on the tin and ta da you have a guitar!  Hand …

Finger Painting the Clean Way!

My chosen Play activity this week is Finger Painting with a difference. I first saw this done at the baby toddler group that I go to with the Robot.  He was about 4 months old so couldn’t really take part as lets face it, he couldn’t even sit up let …

Edible Painting with your Baby!

My chosen Play activity this week is Edible Painting.  I must be mad. You make edible paint with corn flour, water and food colouring.  I used 100g of corn flour.  Heat up some water so it’s warm in the kettle.  In a pan on the stove put the cornflour on …

Feeding the Ducks

Most blog posts I write seem to mention the fact that I go walking with the Robot a lot, so why change a habit of a life time.  He is getting to an age that he is  noticing things more around him and he loves the ducks. He follows them …

Cooking with Babies

The Robot and I quite often cook together.  He’s 8 months old, so we don’t actually cook together, I’m not that crazy.  He will sit in his high chair and watch me cook and bake.  It’s great as I can witter at him and he likes to listen!  Sometimes I’ll …

The Importance of Reading to your Child

I love reading, I’ve always been a bookworm.  I struggle at the moment to fit a book in, I find this hard.  I am channelling this frustration into reading with the Robot.  He was a few weeks old when we popped into the local library and got his first library …

Airplanes With Your Baby

Airplanes Also known as the Superman game.  Laying on your back with your knees bent up, lay your little one on your shins and let them fly by moving your legs around.  This one is great for your core stomach muscles too, get toning! Robot loves this game, especially now …

Alphabet Challenge

In the middle of the night I got all excited about doing a series of blog posts that follow the alphabet.  Each week doing something that begins with the next letter of the alphabet. Am I crazy? You could say that I am a little sleep deprived and have had …
