Crafting Chinese New Year

Have you heard of Yellow Moon? I buy some of our craft supplies from there as my son’s school receives a small payment every time we shop. I couldn’t resist a bag of Chinese New Year foam stamps and today the 3 year old was happy to sit and sort them. There were 20 different stickers so this kept her busy for a while!

Crafting Chinese New Year

We thought we’d make a Chinese lantern so I cut out the centre of a paper plate and placed tissue paper behind it. Little Sis decorated it with her stickers and we made a small tassle from red wool to make it look like a lantern.

A baking day

This morning Big Brother and Daddy went on their annual trip to the Model Engineering Show at Ally Pally. Little Sis and I stayed at home to hide from the snow which was falling and decided to have a baking session. First up was chocolate muffins, followed by Minion biscuits. Little Sis enjoyed playing with the biscuit dough so much she required a clean set of clothes!

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: The Return of Harmony

When I was little I was obsessed with My Little Pony. For a good few years I collected them and every birthday and Christmas I asked for a new set. I played with them for hours and hours. My own daughter received some of the newer version for her own birthday and it’s sweet watching her playing with them too. I really wish I had kept all my old toys for her to play with!

She was recently sent a new DVD to review – My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: The Return of Harmony trots on to DVD today (12th January 2015). Not only can My Little Pony fans enjoy 138 minutes of magical adventure, The Return of Harmony is also released as a limited edition DVD which includes a special MY LITTLE PONY toy!

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: The Return of Harmony

The Return of Harmony is the first part of the second season of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic which is based on the line of toys manufactured by Hasbro. In this instalment, an ancient evil known as ‘Discord’ escapes his stone prison and Twilight Sparkle and her friends discover that the Elements of Harmony have been stolen! It’s up to the gang to ward against Discord’s mind games, and retrieve all the elements in time to save Equestria from falling into chaos.

Celebrate the New Year and bring the magic home with My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: The Return of Harmony on DVD and digital download. My children enjoyed watching it and my daughter loved the addition of the My Little Pony to play with. The DVD includes 6 episodes and a couple of bonus features too. We’ll definitely be looking out for more My Little Pony adventures!
