This one-pot wonder isn’t just brilliant because it means less washing up–it’s also supremely easy (and deliciously more-ish, too). So, if the dinner table cries encore, you can literally have it ready in a 15 minute flash.
So pumpkin carving is over, the plastic bats and spiders shelved….Neeext. Time for jolly, corny jumpers and sparkly, tree-shaped crafts. This tree-shaped craft is especially jolly, sparkly, and perfect for little hands (and literally embellished by them, too). Ho ho ho!
Recent studies show that persistence really does pay off; self-discipline and sticking to tasks–no matter how difficult–increases academic results independent of IQ. This is ground-breaking stuff, because it implies we, and our children, are not confined to deterministic principles: we can achieve because we set our minds to do so. But how to we impart that life-changing self-belief to our kids? As with communicating every other nugget of parenting wisdom, we have to walk the walk.
Remember that horror story revealing that door knobs host more illness-causing bacteria than a public toilet seat? Now a new study has found that even our towels are probably more infested than the much-maligned porcelain throne. Yeuch.

In many ways, they are so distinctive from us; they’ve even got their own special set of kiddy-specific phobias–the number one fear being the dreaded public restroom hand dryers. But it looks like those monstrous noise-blasting machines could soon be vanquished–and by a beloved children’s story character, no less.
