Aquafresh Brushtime

VIDEO FEATURE ADVISORY 


How to make brush time fun Getting your children to brush their teeth can be a nightmare for parents, in fact a new survey saw 80% of parents say their children get angry and throw major temper tantrums when it comes to brushtime.

These statistics were revealed in a report commissioned by Aquafresh to celebrate the release of Disney∙Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ in cinemas out now. Disney∙Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ is based in Headquarters, inside 11-year old Riley’s mind.

Like all of us Riley is guided by her emotions, Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness, the voices inside her head, as they advise her through everyday life. These emotions and more are also experienced by children and their parents during brushtime.

The report also revealed that one in 10 parents admit that they actually send their children to bed without brushing their teeth. As tooth care is such a vital aspect of life for growing children it is important that they are encouraged to have clean teeth and see brushing as a positive and exciting activity to do in the morning and before bed.

 If you’re looking to bring the fun to brushtime, watch our video with Child Behavioural Expert Lorraine Thomas who has provided her top tips on how to make brushing teeth enjoyable. From character themed tooth brushes, to fun involving the whole family, our video with child behavioural expert Lorraine Thomas covers it all.

Fathers Day Gift Idea - British Tea Lovers

Fathers Day Gift Idea - British Tea Lovers
Fathers Day Gift Idea - British Tea Lovers

I am a coffee person, there is no doubt about that. I like the odd herbal or fruity tea at work, but when it comes to a cuppa I'm coffee all the way.

My Hubby however, likes tea. He'll join me in a coffee at breakfast but if he has a brew in the day it's tea. If he's poorly, he goes for tea. If he's (hee hee) hungover, he goes for tea. When we visit friends and family, he has tea.

So when British Tea Lovers offered me the chance to sample their Father's Day Gift Tin with English Breakfast Tea I jumped at the chance because I knew he would be able to tell me if it was any good.

We received their smart looking limited edition Father's Day tin packed full of Ceylon black tea, and a rather sweet strawberry tea strainer (because it is loose tea). The tin is a good size and Hubby is looking forward to being able to fill it with his bits and bobs (like fellas do!)

I made a pot of the tea and we both tried it, and it really is very nice! We prefered to give it a longer time brewing than suggested on the tin, but that's a personal preference. Even as a coffee drinker I enjoy this tea. In fact, I have split the tin and two and taken half of it to work with me to share with my tea-drinking colleagues! And they like it too! Hubby wouldn't let me take all of it to work.... he wants the rest at home for himself!

So.... if the Daddy in your life likes tea then I can recommend British Tea Lover's Father Day Gift Tin. It would be a great addition to his breakfast in bed! And don't forget that cute little strawberry shaped strainer if you're used to tea bags.

Day Out With Nana

Earlier this week Jack came bounding out of school with a letter inviting people up to Lancaster University for a Community Family Fun Day. It was on a day when Nana was coming to visit, and the weather was beautiful so I figured why the heck not?

We packed up a picnic, slapped on the sun cream, and off we went! Apart from Jack once calling into the sports centre, its the first time the kids have been to the Uni. I'm not as familiar with it as I could be myself (after all, I went to St. Martins College in town, it was Hubby who went to the Uni), and we were trying to explain to the boys that this massive place - that looked like a small town - was actually a kind of school for grown ups. They loved the place though.

We found the picnic and crafts area and tucked into our butties, fruit, and treats in the sunshine while we watched the crafts going on at tables all around us and work out what we fancied trying first!

There was an air-drying clay table which drew their attention first. The idea was to make little plaques with imprints of leaves and flowers which you could then hang in your garden. My lot just enjoyed mashing and bashing the clay. In the end it was my little Artist Tom who actually made something to bring home - a cut out of a leaf with a real leaf imprint. It's on my kitchen window ledge now drying off. George made something he insists is a snail (but actually looks like a poo), that's on the window ledge too. Jack wasn't bothered about making anything to bring home from that table - he was more worried about having clay all over his hands! They chose to skip the table where people were crocheting with plastic bags (shame, coz I fancied that one, but it was impossible with a grabby grabby Freddie in the sling) and went straight to the bottle painting table instead. Tom lost interest and wanted to run about for a while in the sun, but Jack and George poured metallic paint into little bottles and made pretty patterns with them. They are ALSO drying out in the kitchen and can be hung from our tree in a few days. They do look lovely!

Everything else what was going on was a little bit grown up for my lot - assorted talks and demonstrations - and since the weather was still amazing we skipped off to Fairfield Orchard instead and let the kids run round in the trees and long grass for a bit.

It was an AWESOME day! And they went to bed early, tired, and very very happy!
