Octonaut Birthday

The Octonauts (TV show) are all the rage with the grandsons at present (less so with Ms 4). So when it was Master 6’s birthday recently I guess the choice of a cake was a no-brainer.

Luckily for him he has talented parents. Mum made the great cake, and Dad with his artistic skills did the icing and the octonaut cut-outs. Great team work! A definite hit with Master 6, almost as big as his octoport from the other Nanna 🙂

Octonauts to your stations!

Fun for grandchildren

Master 3 and I recently borrowed this toy from the Darwin Toy Library and it was a big hit with both of us as well as Master nearly 6, big brother.

If you have grandchildren you might be interested in it. There is an A to Z alphabet on the mat, the animals have the relevant letter on the front, and when you combine the two it says, for example, “E” for Elephant and makes an elephant’s noise. Very cool. Then there’s all the imaginary games you can play with it as well. Quite the hit!
