Birthday party ideas: Giveaway £30 to spend at Party bags and Supplies

Children’s birthday parties used to be a bunch of friends around the birthday kids house for party food and pass the parcel, then at the end of the party you would get a party bag with a piece of cake in it. This is not the case anymore: parties are themed and parents pay hundreds of pounds for entertainers to run the party, the party bags are also themed and not full of tat.


I highly recommend checking out the party bags and supplies website, they offer themed selections of pre-filled party bags, table/room decorations and to make it even better, we are offering you the chance to win £30 to spend on their website.

For a chance to win please enter the rafflecopter giveaway below:

Terms and conditions: only open to uk residents, rafflecopter will be open from midnight on 13th September until midnight on 30th September, winner will be picked at random, if you have previously won one of party bags and supplies competitions, you cannot enter future competitions, prize will be organised by party bags and supplies an alternative will not be supplied by Eps and Amy blog should the company fail to provide. We reserve the right to amend on cancel giveaway at any time.

Top tips for avoiding head lice this school year

It’s that time of year again, the summer holidays are drawing to a close and the kids are getting ready to head back to school.

Mums everywhere are checking school uniforms, labelling snack pots, trying to persuade themselves that th kids school shoes can do another year (if only), but the one thing I always add to my list of purchases for the start of school is a good headlice prevention!

Headlice in schools are pretty much inevitable, most kids get them at some point but here are a few tips to try and avoid the dreaded “little beasties”:

  • Keep girls hair tied back, plaited on in a bun is even better
  • Hair spray, often a thin coat of hair spray over the kids hair is enough to stop the bugs from hopping across
  • Prevention shampoo, for example Tea Tree Shampoo
  • Prevention leave in conditioning spray, for example Hedrin Protect & Go.

As I said it is almost inevitable that your child will get head lice at some point, so just for one of our lucky followers we, in cooperation with Hedrin, have put together a full bundle of head lice treatments as a prize. Please enter using the link below:

Aspirations of a 9 year old: SockyWocky

Safin is an inspiration! He is a 9 year old who is CEO of his own company (obviously with his Mummy’s help) called SockyWocky.

The main idea around SockyWocky is spreading positive affirmations. Everyone needs to hear some positivity and 9 year old Safin thought it would be really clever to have these positive messages on socks so all day long you get reminded to stay positive.

Educational toys for phonics help and Giveaway

My son jack is an August baby (he’s going to be 6 next month), and as such is one of the youngest in his class, he has been struggling in school particularly with his reading and writing. He doesn’t find it fun, to him it is a chore which HAS to be done and he hates it. I saw a post on Facebook from Gifts for Little Hands showing phonics dominoes and thought that was exactly what jack needs, he loves playing with the traditional number dominoes so I thought these might actually keep his attention.

Giveaway! Toy Storage!!!!

Everyone needs more toy storage, how do kids these days end up with quite so many toys!?

This toy storage is absolutely great, especially if you have the rule (like I do) that they can only get a new “box” of toys out when the last one has been put away. This saves Mummy a lot of time later!

It is really easy to put together, literally took the husband 3 minutes. It’s nice and sturdy, not going to break if the kids climb on it.

Sunrise clock: why you want one and how to get it (hint, we are giving one away)

When you wake up when you aren’t quite ready, like in the middle of a dream, you start the day feeling sleepy and nothing you can do can shake it.

A sunrise clock, or wake up light, is the perfect solution. You set the wake up time and half an hour before the light comes on and gradually increases in intensity over the half hour before wake up, at which point either nature sounds or the radio comes on (depending on which you set it to).
