School Holidays coming up, why not enter the National Lego Building Competition?

This is not a sponsored post, it is purely me sharing the information with others, if you would like to sponsor me, please use the contact form.

These school holidays we have a mission, I have been trying to get my son to enter this competition for a few years but it has never happened. I want to go to California please!!

This years competition entries all recieve a copy of Mega Factories Lego episode and participation certificate, which would be worth entering just for that.

We have been trying to come up with an original idea, but it isn’t easy, so many things have been created with Lego already.  My son has picked his idea and started building and I will share it with you all when it is complete.

The competition is run through Toyworld, which is where you can pick up the entry forms.  We received ours through Lego club, which is worth joining if you have a Lego fan.  Entries are open between 1st of April till the 30th April 2012.

If your children decide to enter, come back and link me up with a photo!  Happy building!


Win! My first Giveaway – Disney’s Lemonade Mouth

Guess what?! It’s Giveaway time!

I received in the mail the other day a copy of Disney’s Lemonade Mouth to review and a copy for one lucky reader to win.

Lemonade Mouth is about a group of  5 young teens Olivia,  (Bridgit Mendler), Mo (Naomi Scott), Charlie (Blake Michael), Stella, (Hayley Kiyoko), and Wen (Adam Hicks)who meet in detention, find they all have musical talent and form a band, but they are at the bottom of the school rank (literally, in the basement) as far as the Principal (Christopher McDonald) is concerned, as he does everything he can to extinguish their talent and voice within the school.

The kids all have various struggles and difficulties in their lives that I am sure young teens could be able to relate to, from step families, to overbearing parents, dealing with death in the family  that they need to overcome, and overcome they do but not without a struggle first!

I don’t want to give too much away but those kids can certainly sing, what voices and talent!  I’m sure the soundtrack would be a favourite.

Lemonade Mouth is a Disney Channel movie so having only free to air tv I hadn’t heard of it. I was not a huge fan of  High School Musical so I was a little skeptical but it was a well written movie, the characters were likeable and the message of friendship really stood out to me.

I wasn’t sure if my children aged 5 and 8 would find this movie interesting but they sat through the whole movie, and if my daughter doesn’t like something she won’t sit and watch!  My daughter also said “It’s Awesome” as the last song the band performed was on.

It  would suit an older age bracket perhaps 10-Teens as I think some of the story line went over my kids head, but in saying that they still enjoyed watching it and as a parent I would recommend it.  I really enjoyed the songs and the movie encouraged kids to go for their dreams and not be trodden down by others who think they are better but to push on and succeed.
