Rubbish, Ramps and Racing Cars

Rubbish Every day it seems we get rubbish through the door. Does the post man not know how excited I get when I hear the letter box go, only to find its just more rubbish.  Bitterly disappointing! Never fear though as now I have a use for it. The Robot …

Wicked Uncle – A Birthday Surprise – Part Two

On Tuesday I shared an exciting post from my Brother, aka Uncle Alex to the Robot: Wicked Uncle A Birthday Surprise Part One.  He kindly made a video review of the Wicked Uncle website in order to buy his nephew a pretty awesome 1st Birthday present.  You’re back here today …

Wicked Uncle – A Birthday Surprise – Part One

This week is a pretty exciting week for us in the TwoTinyHands household.  The Robot is about to turn a whopping one years old!  I’ve spent the last year getting to know my son and amongst all the sleepless nights and early starts, feeding schedules and day time routines I …

Quiet Time #30DaysWild The Final Day

The final day of a challenge is a special one. A time to reflect back on all the things we have done but also find a little peace quiet amongst our busy lives. With little people though it can be hard to find the quiet times in the day. At …

Let’s Go to The Park

Let’s go to the park!  The Robot has been able to use the swings for a couple of months now and with nicer weather it’s one of our daily go to activities, sometimes more than once.  10 minutes of outdoor play, get some fresh air and clear the head and …

Nature aka Exploring the Garden 

Getting out and exploring nature is such a great idea. We go out and about everyday but on this occasion we decided to explore our back garden. We’ve not got the biggest of gardens, but at least we have some.

Mirror Play

Mirror Play Ever since the Robot was a very little squishy one we’ve always enjoyed a little bit of fun with mirrors.  I think it’s the fascination of seeing himself.   I used to position him under his play gym mirror, he would always grab at it.  Then when a …

Light Play

Light Play When coming up with something for the letter L it took a bit of time.  It wasn’t until I realised that the Robot always stares at the light in the room that I realised we can try another sensory treat.  While I was pregnant I read about light …

Kitchen Play

Kitchen Play The Robot just loves to bang and make noise.  He is also at an age where sitting in the high chair and dutifully watching me cook isn’t working.  So to counteract this we have decided to try play in the kitchen.  I’ve pulled out all the pots and …

Jelly Play

I’ve been putting this one off, I know it’ll be fun for the Robot but I just haven’t plucked up the courage. The Jelly has been in the fridge for two days and today is my usual play deadline, it’s time to get going!

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 …
