Rainy Weekend Days and how we survive them

As the weather has been so cold and rainy for the last 2 weeks, we have decided to stay home most weekends and keep warm and cosy! However, with 3 children that isn't always as lovely and relaxing as it sounds!

I find that most weekends the kids want to stay home and play after their busy week at school, sometimes staying home with them drives me mad but there are definitely ways to make it more bearable and it means i get to save money!

My children (like most) are tablet/iphone obsessed and would play games on their devices all weekend long if i let them. I don't like to see them spending all of their weekend on their tablets so i'm usually the one to go hunting around the house looking for fun things to do with them.

K is the youngest and he loves to bake cakes, we usually do some baking most weekends so I know he's done his favourite thing and he's happy. The older ones are harder to entertain, because they would prefer to be playing on their tablets!

Games always go down well with my children, they love trying new games but still love playing their old favourites such as Dobble and Game of Life. This week we have tried 2 new games, the first one is Top Trumps cards. My partner was shocked that i had never played it before or that i never had any as a child! This game was a little too hard for 4 year old K to understand so we played it after he went to bed. 

Top Trumps is fun and quick and easy, it can drag on for a long time but if you limit yourself to 10 minutes only it's not so bad. I like games that don't require any set up if it's a quick game before bedtime, so this one is perfect! There are plenty different Top Trumps cards to collect, our girls chose Shopkins and Trolls

We also tried this PJ Masks game, my youngest is a big fan and he really enjoyed the game, although he didn't really follow the rules of the game too well!
The game comes with all the PJ Masks characters, playing cards, Romeo's Lab and 15 robots. The object of the game is to work together as a team to defeat the Robots from taking over.  It's quite easy to follow but some 4 year olds may find it difficult like my little boy did. Definitely worth a go for rainy day fun for all PJ Masks fans!

This game includes 1x Game Board, 33x Playing Cards, 4x Movers, 15x Robots, 15x Robot Bases, 1x Romeo's Lab, 1x Romeo's Lab Base & instructions. 

This game is suitable for 1-4 players. Suitable for ages 4 years and up. 
Playing Time: 20 minutes

Kids love to play games and toys that they haven't seen in a long time, so before you go out splashing cash on new games maybe have a look at the back of the cupboards to see if you can find their old favourites?

Thanks for Reading :-) Enjoy your weekend however you choose to spend it!
