What the kids Wore // Reima

One thing we learned very early was that the quality of clothing we buy for our ski holidays makes a big difference.  The temperature drop is quite considerable and we are not used to snow at home.  The bigger boys spend multiple hours a day outside whilst we are there and I want to feel confident that they are warm, dry and comfortable for it.  The children don't need a lot of clothes when we are away as they live in their thermals

We were sent a few items from Reima and the quality is outstanding.  Reima is a Finnish band committed to keeping kids active without letting the weather get in the way.  Their products are designed for an active childhood. Both Cora and Dylan had a set of thermals that were designed to keep their body heat in and they both found them comfy and warm.

  Dylan and Archie already have the fleeces which are the perfect mid layer and they wore them all week.  They are quick drying (they are pretty much dry when they come out the washing machine) and help keep the warmth in without bulking them up.

Archie was also sent a beautiful blue jacket which he wore every day and we both loved.  It was perfect for skiing with a pocket for his lift pass, adjustable cuffs and a detachable hood, but he will be wearing it all winter as it is a warm, well made coat that can accompany him on his everyday adventures.

We will definitely continue to shop with Reima for warm winter wear!

We Love Rocks

It has been a busy half term and amongst the day trips, lunches out and ice creams we have been looking for free activities, especially ones that involve wearing out the four children.  We recently discovered a facebook group called Love on the rocks that encourages people to paint or draw on rocks and hide them in public places as part of a national hide and seek. The groups (there are lots of local ones too) mean you can share where you have hidden your rocks and find places nearby where others have hidden them.

It became our go-to activity for the week, something to get us out the house and encourage the boys to be active.  They love the hunt, they run from tree to tree searching and the excitement when they find one is brilliant.

Today we headed to the park with friends and managed to find 8 different stones including an alien, a bunny rabbit and a frog.  We examined each one before hiding it somewhere new and the game is never ending as we know by the time we visit again each of the stones will have moved.

My top tips for rock hunts

1) Check on Facebook for local parks or areas that people have hidden them.  Our local park has its own group, but there are national and county groups too.

2) Make sure you are dressed for the weather.  Wellies are a great idea as are warm layers so that you can stay out a bit longer.  The big two are wearing fleeces from Reima here that are warm and quick drying.

3) Take drinks and snacks - sometimes the rocks are hidden really well so it may take you a while!

4) Check the bases of trees and around statues as they seem to be the most popular hiding places.  They aren't always on the ground though.

5) If your children are old enough, then taking a bag and a litter picking stick means you can do a mini park clean at the same time.

6) Hide your own creations whilst you are hunting and don't forget to share where you have hidden them so others can join in the fun!
