After Easter egg hunt we were left with loads of plastic eggs. So I made this Montessori-inspired sound set. Max had to match sounds, pairing every red egg with one green egg

I am planning to show you the best toys out there that we love playing with every Tuesday. Please let me know what you think about this idea in comments below.
We start with this Magformers Math 87 Set from @magformersuk’s educational range. Magformers magnetic pieces allow builders of all ages and abilities to easily create anything in 2D or 3D. The educational value of this set is in a provided selection of basic shapes as well as a wonderful activity book that gives a number of great activities for learning patterns, numbers, shapes and much more.

How long ago did you go for a romantic getaway without your children last time? I can't stress enough how important it is to take a short break from parenting from time to time. This weekend my wife and I are exploring Canterbury while our boys are spending quality time with grandma. So it's the win-win-win situation.
I posted more photos on my Instagram stories. Have a look if you want to found out why Canterbury is worth visiting

If your child loves all kind of vehicles like Max does, The Ultimate Book of Vehicles with a number of moving parts is a must have for you. In a fun and engaging way, the book shows how a fish factory ship works, how the rocket is launched into space, how an excavator demolishes buildings and a crane builds them.

At first it seems quite easy to get the paper ball into a bottle by blowing it in, but it always gets out unless you use a straw to focus the air

We used this stacker with three rods to play Towers of Hanoi. The rules of the game are quite simple. At the start, all the disks are on one side, with the largest disk on the bottom and the smallest on the top. The object of the game is to move all the disks over to the other side. You can only move one disk per move, and you can only move the top disk on a stack. Disks can only be moved to empty stacks or on top of larger disks. Parents can play this game too, just add extra discs.

Over the weekend we celebrated Alex's and Max's birthday. Thank you @LEGO for hosting the party and for making them feel extra special on that day. The boys, their friends, and all the parents had lots of fun playing party games using just LEGO bricks! Here are some ideas for throwing your own party:
