What we did today... keeping kids busy...

Got inspired by a Facebook photo post from allbymykid.com

We walked on the beach and pick up pebbles (you can use shells) , got home and got messy cleaning them with soapy water, then we attempted to decorate our stones with markers. You could use glitter, stickers,... Don't look like much but was good entertainment for a 4 years old! :)

This is our version made in Sweden, couple of weeks ago.

Celeb Mum on Instagram

Instagram is an amazing social media platform to get inspired and informed. It's an easy way to connect with like-minded people and see the world through the eyes of many different viewpoints and experiences. You can get a glimpse into the life of celeb mummies, see the human side of their experience as a parent, not just from glossy magazines pictures. We like the raw beauty about being able to see how someone balances it all - careers and motherhood.

Some Chalk Fun

Sometime it's not difficult to keep the little ones occupied... Today we played with sidewalk chalk. Here's some ideas, games and cool ideas to do with with sidewalk / terrace / driveway chalk. It's fun for all ages and the possibilities are endless.

We tried drawing pictures, hopscotch, body outline trace, chalk rainbow and Tic Tac Toe and next time City Map, Treasure Map,Connect the Dots... And surprisingly cleaning up is also lots of fun!

More Safe Nails, yes please

Today we are playing again with one of our favorite girly product, Snails Nail Polish! Remember our post "Safe Glame for little girls" from last year? This water-base nail polish for kids is 100% safe, it does not contain any toluene, formaldehyde, dibutylphthalate (DBP), bisphenol A (BPA). There is nothing toxic about this product, made from only three ingredients Water, Acrylic Polymer & Non Toxic Colorants. Snails Kids are free from harsh chemical odors.

 This is a fantastic product safe for the little ones, your interior and the clothes, thanks to the water-soluble formula. And this time it even better with the addition of Snail Top Coat, with its oxygen technology it seals the polish for up to 2 days and respects the natural physiology of the nail.

Ramadan Kareem... with love.

Wishing you a beautiful and meaningful Ramadan in music with love,

Share some love this Ramadan with Comfort Creation

After an overwhelming success, Comfort Creations “SHARES A TOUCH OF LOVE THIS RAMADAN" is back again this year. We supported this great initiative last year and would love to encourage you again this year to participate.

This is a charity campaign that encourages the people of the UAE to donate clothes to those less fortunate than themselves as part of their charitable acts during the Holy Month.
Comfort Creations donation booths will be at four malls across the UAE, at Deira City Centre, Mall of the Emirates, Mirdif City Centre and Lamcy Plaza from 15th to 31st July in collaboration with UAE Red Crescent, who will distribute the apparel collected to those in need. All clothes will be collected in giant Comfort Creations bottles, which will be individually decorated with the hand prints of each donor, creating a colourful and physical representation of their charitable acts. All visitors to the stand will receive a Comfort Creations fragrance drawer liner and every person who donates will be thanked with a 750ml bottle from the new Comfort Creations range.

This is an easy way to participate in the beauty of the Holy month of Ramadan and spread some love and generosity. Thanks for sharing!

To support the campaign, track its success and for further information, follow www.facebook.com/comfortzonearabia
