Recreating Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh with Galt




Me and my kids was recently asked if we would like to recreate our own version of  'Sunflowers' by Vincent Van Gogh. We was sent out some felt tips and art jar from Galt

The art jar was very impressive and there was loads of fun stuff in it



We printed the sunflowers template out and got to work making our own version.

we started by using some coloured pencils and felt tips to colour the sunflowers in. We lightly shaded the background in too. Then we added some of the yellow and green tissue paper from the Galt art jar to the flowers and leaves to give the picture more texture




I really enjoyed recreating this masterpiece, even more than the kids did. I can remember in school when I was 7 or 8 and we had to do a paining of the famous Sunflowers and we used sand to give it some texture.

The kids had lot's of fun with the rest of the things in the art jar. They made some binoculars from the paper and stuck a few bits and bobs on to make them pretty


You can find Galt on Facebook and Twitter

We was sent the Galt felt tips and art jar in order for us to recreate our picture. All opinions are mine and 100% honest

Nurture - Healthy Kids Drinks

Nurture - Healthy Kids Drinks in box


Nurture - Healthy Kids Drinks in pouches

We was sent out 2 boxes of the new Imune Nurture drinks for kids.

Each one comes in a 200ml spill proof pouch. They are 100% natural fruity water, we tried the strawberry and cherry flavour one. 

Here's a little blurb from the makers of Nurture Drink from their website

"Hello!

We are Lucie and Derek Sanders, the founders of I MUNE, and parents
to Isabella, Dominic and Anna.

We’ve always believed in letting our children enjoy the fun adventure of learning through exploring as much as possible.  This has meant leaving the sanitized world of the family home and getting out into the real world of playgrounds, puddles, and playing with friends - environments we all know are filled with germs.

We started to look for 100% natural healthy drinks that strengthen our children’s immunity against germs and infections, taste delicious, have no added sugar, and are convenient.  We also started asking other parents, and found that we were not alone in our search, and that there were none on the market.

Our search for what is best to naturally support the immunity of our children culminated in our creation of I MUNE health drinks. Inspired by the discovery that children experience in their early toddler years, we’ve started our range with a healthy immunity drink specifically for 2 years+, which we’ve called NURTURE.

We hope your children love I MUNE NURTURE as much as our kids do!
Thanks very much for your visit, Lucie and Derek Sanders"


The drinks are 50% juice and 50% water and enhanced with vitamins B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, D, calcium, zinc and Wellmune beta glucans. Each pouch contains 100% of 7 vitamins and zinc recommend for a 2-5 year old. I am always looking for healthy drinks for my kids and these sound amazing!! And do just the job.

all 3 of my kids really like the taste of these drinks, and I had one too and thought they were delicious.. We will be buying these again and I would recommend these to anyone who wants their kids to drink and eat a little more healthier.

You can find Imune Nurture on Facebook and Twitter

I was sent 2 boxes of these nurture drink in return for a review. All opinions are mine and 100% honest
