Summer Holiday Giveaway

A month ago when the Summer holidays started I thought I had so much time to have lots of fun with Ruby and Lottie, before Ruby returned back to school; but now here in Leicestershire in just 2 short weeks Ruby will be back at school. I am not ready for her to go back, I want to have more fun with her. How are you feeling about the summer holidays? Are you like me or are you counting down the weeks until the start of term?


Well I might have something to help you. I was recently offered a #stressfreeholiday kit to use over the summer holiday and its good news for you my readers too, as I have a kit to give away! Contained within the kit is:

  • a book of 365 things to make and do - Ruby loves this book!
  • an ice lolly maker
  • a vegetable growing kit
  • a waterproof disposable camera - Ruby has loved to use when playing with Lottie in the paddling pool.
  • and a scrap book to record your summer holiday memories.

All you need to do to enter to win a StressFreeHolidayKit (from www.stressfreeprint.co.uk) is to leave a comment at the bottom of this post, telling me your favourite thing to do on a holiday. Then you need to click on the Rafflecopter widget and confirm you have done this. You will then be offered the chance to do other social media stuff to gain extra entries but you don't have to do them.

Good Luck!

 
Full terms and conditions can be found on the rafflecopter widget.
