New PLUSH wheelybugs now in stock!
Wheelybugs make fantastic gifts for children. They are cute, sturdy, and give hours of fun as the ride on toys can be rolled forwards, backwards and round and round. They are the favourite toy for children of all ages that visit the 2littlefeet household! Our first Wheelybug will be 10 years old this Christmas!
It’s been rolled inside and outside, across lawns and across the kitchen floor by all ages! The babies love to lie and push the friendly looking Wheelybugs, older children love to race up and down on them. The baby sitter still wants to have a turn, and adults that are more than old enough to know better, will, without any encouragement, give them a whirl too!
So yes, since there is no chance of any children that play in this house growing out of these toys for many years, this Christmas we will be adding to our collection, with a new plush Wheelybug. Wonder if Santa gives them a go on the snow?
‘Kids ignorant about nutrition’
Bring back Home Economics into school says 2littlefeet.
If life skills are not taught then how can children learn them?
A simple description of the daily school lunch and its contents would be a good starting point. Food and healthy eating should also have more weight, pardon the pun, in biology and the practical applications could be introduced in chemistry and physics. A whole syllabus approach should be introduced to both eating well and finance so that budgeting skills are also improved. The cost of running an oven for 2 fish fingers, microwave peas vs boiling on a hob etc .
Supermarkets could also market their food products through a nutrition program for the nation. Let’s face it, Recipe cards are a bit old hat, in the digital age the scope to make a real impact with new marketing tools to help customers choose well nutritionally and financially must be worth its weight in weekly carrot tonnage if not pure gold carats!
