Archibold Clutterbuck and friends

My extensive hunt for a fun and exciting geography resource for my 7 year old came to an end when I found an absolutely brilliant children’s geography pack! ArchilboldClutterbuck is and has been the perfect find and I no longer spend endless night trying to create and find fun filled resources.

So why is it so good?

It isn’t just the fact that you receive a world map, ‘Continents explorer journal’ and stickers, it is more than the physical items. The website is bursting with information, endless facts and short videos. The best part is, it isn’t like trying to get a 7 year old to read the dictionary(!), it is fun, colourful and engaging. Everything is simple enough for children to understand, yet the information is there too, so no compromises on that front! 

Continents Explorer Journal 

This is, as the title states, a journal for your little one to fill in. It is exceptionally well designed, not just a notebook for kids to fill in. It has colour, pictures, lovely sections for children to draw animals, or transport or celebrations from around the world and more. 
I love the way it is set. Each continent has enough space and pages to write out all the facts the children learn. Each continent page starts with a few facts, so things like population, number of countries, longest river, largest country, smallest country and so on. This works well for us, it enables my 7 year to comprehend what are important facts, and how to make a concise list without having to write pages and pages. 

An added bonus, always welcome in this house, is the quality of the paper. We tend to erase a lot! Some papers can only withstand so much of constant erasing and writing, but this journal has passed that test with flying colours. Brilliant quality! 


For what I paid, I was already impressed with the journal and world map plus stickers. However, the website is, well let’s say, icing on the cake! Little person has spent so long looking through each section, ‘wowing and ooohing’! 
The website has lots of different sections, covering flags, continents, environments, indigenous people, Kaia’s worldy adventure,Archie’s top 5, galleries and activities! 

Whilst looking at Africa today, little person was able to (only using the website) pick up on mountains, animals, indigenous people and deserts! We’ve also enjoyed Kaia’s adventure! Top 5 videos have been an added bonus, they’re nice and short but full of factual info, making it easy to remember! 
With so many sections, so much is covered on the website, I can see this being easily used as a stand alone resource for geography. That is exactly what we have been doing, and it’s made geography planning and teaching simple but absolutely fun! 

So hop along and take a look at the website:

Yipee adventure box - bug hunting theme

Yippee adventure box - bug hunting theme box  We  received  the marvellous Yippee  adventure box to trial, and after having enjoyed the  activities  with both 7 and 3 year old,  I  felt a review was worthwhile.  Yippee boxes are  designed  to encourage science,  technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM), and 'To  facilitate fun and special family  experiences.' Upon opening the 'Bug box' both kids were  overwhelmed   with  the contents and eagerly dived in, so off we were, on our yippee  adventure! What's in the box? The bug box arrived with two categories of activities, 'Bug homes' and 'Go on a bug adventure'.  Bug homes Bug homes activities  were all about that, making, creating and designing homes for  little  creatures. The  first  activity little person dived into was, making his  spider web and spider. The activities can be easily carried out by children, except using the scissors..

Fusha House arabic

I was kindly offered the opportunity to complete a free session using FushaHouse arabic. Arabic has been a language that I've always wanted to learn, and it's also a language I've been passionate about. As little person has taken to writing and reading in English, Arabic was the second language I wanted him to learn. When learning a language, it is important to find resources that are easy to use, especially for younger learners. Over time I have tried so many books, apps and websites, but if the resource isn't exciting or encapsulating, young leaners loose interest very quickly. There is nothing worse than spending so much money and zero use. Nevertheless, I believe we have found a resource that ticks all the boxes. FushaHouse offers interactive learning, it is also child user friendly and the pace enables children to feel at ease, without feeling overwhelmed very quickly into the process. A lot of language resources seem to very quickly move on from basics to

Endangered animals activity pack

We recently received this wonderful fact filled pack from Archiboldclutterbuck (to read more about Archiboldclutterbuck  resources click here). Contents and what we think The pack is made up of an activity booklet and a poster. The poster is a great visual tool; with in depth (but not overbearing-too much to read) information about 6 critically endangered animals across the globe. Each animal is listed with a fact file (for instance type of animal, habitat etc), and reason as to why they are critically endangered. For each animal listed there is a beautiful photograph; I do believe having photography in such posters and texts is important , as it really does bring the whole concept and idea to 'life'. We love the poster as it's a great size, vibrant and easy to understand, with all the vital information but without too much to read, making it a perfect poster!  The activity pack is what you would ideally expect when teaching endangered animals. Learning fo
