I think it's fair to say that when a future pub quiz question begins with 'in which year' that you can confidently answer with '2016'. I mean, what hasn't happened this year? For better for worse it has been a generation defining year for so many reasons, allow our newsletter to give you a little escapism whilst you wander through our wonderful world.
Winter waves its dazzling wand making everything in view feel that little bit more magical. Spirits are high, excitement builds, families get together in the cosiest of surroundings. If that all sounds far too chirpy and you need a Scrooge-like opposing angle then Christmas trees are responsible for around 1,000 trips to A&E in the UK every year !
We love this time of year as the focus is always on the children yet we understand that it can be quite stressful organising everything. Fortunately for you, our Little Kickers elves have a few tricks up their sleeves to keep your merry team entertained!
The kids are becoming increasingly observant which makes it even harder to keep little secrets a mystery. Here at Little Kickers we've put together a few ideas to help you keep the magic of Christmas alive in your household.
We were very pleased to speak to Dr Ranj from ITV's This Morning about a video he produced which is already saving lives. 'We have to be vigilant of children and the hazards that lie around the house like small items from Christmas crackers and half completed building sets. With the small colourful items proving irresistable to children, it's vital that parents are able to deal with the situation should it ever arise'
Needless to say our friend Santa is a very very busy guy. So we thought we would make his life a little easier by passing on this template he asked to us to send you. Here the children can write all their wishes in their best writing, but remember, Santa wants to know what you're going to do for others too. Will you be helping lay the table? Will you help in looking after a brother or sister?
Looking to keep the kids entertained this winter? Keep little hands busy in the kitchen with these festive recipes. With just a little guidance the children will be able create some winter treats, perhaps save one for Santa?
