The Autistic Guide to Adventure
Outdoor adventuring can be life changing - it makes you physically and mentally stronger, takes you to new places and introduces you to new friends, as well as being an exhilarating challenge - but it can be stressful when there are unexpected social and sensory challenges involved.
I was kindly sent a copy of The Autistic Guide to Adventure: Active Pursuits from Archery to Wild Swimming for Tweens and Teens (Jessica Kingsley Publishing) by Allie Mason, autistic adventurer.
Our dogs are part of the family and we love walking them and adventuring with them. So it's super important to make sure they are safe and healthy. Here is a review of the Dr. Doggy products we were kindly sent.
There are lots of products on the market and it can be hard to know which one is the best. We were kindly sent the Ultimate Dog Protection Pack from Dr. Doggy.
Magnetic Fishing Game
Toys are a must on all Christmas lists and Jaques of London have been the proud producers of family toys and games since 1795. This Magnetic Fishing Game for Kids (£9.99) is the ideal gift.
My Magnetic Calendar
I don't know about your children but my boys are forever insisting they don't need a coat whereas practical old mum here is constantly saying it is going to rain today! My children are always asking me what day it is and what month. So when Jaques of London kindly sent us this Magnetic Calender for Kids to review I was very pleased.
Ecoblaze Swedish Torch
White Horse Energy kindly gifted me their new Ecoblaze Swedish Torch to try. I had organised a full moon swim with my wild swimming group so we decided to all go as a family and take the Swedish Torch with us. I cooked up pizza for the family and packed drinks and torches.
Chinese Checkers Game
When we go away on holiday I really like the kids (and me!) to have a digital detox so we use it as an excuse to have no phones, tablets or devices. We try to make it a reset for all of us and enjoy life without technology for a bit. So it was very fortuitous that Jaques of London sent us this handmade and hand finished Chinese Checkers game board to try just before our half term trip to the Lake District.
