Belle & Boo - And The Yummy Scrummy Day

Belle & Boo is a brand that I love, loved it since I first picked up a Boo badge that my daughter wore on her coat all year.  We have a couple of Mandy Sutcliffe's other books, prints for each of the little foxes and the Belle and Boo range is getting bigger all the time.  I love the look of her latest crafting book, I'm going to buy it and see what we can make during the summer holidays - that's for another post methinks.

In the meantime we have a copy of her beautiful book, Belle & Boo - And The Yummy Scrummy Day  to give away.  It is such a pretty little book and the reason I love it, is that it is about all the fun young children can have with food.  Belle and her best friend, the rabbit Boo, play, make and bake a healthy feast.

My little foxes love their food and are, I hope, developing a great attitude towards food, it's pleasures and what's good for them to eat.  I think it really important to teach my children where their food comes from, and introduce them to the wonderful tastes of unadulterated fresh fruit and veggies.  We have a garden full of edible plants and an allotment, and we love to go foraging on our dog walks; blackberries, apples, plums, elderberries and their flowers and sloes to mention just those that immediately spring to mind.  

They both love to cook with me.  Cooking, gardening and foraging are healthy, creative and cost effective ways to pass the time over the summer hols.  For me, good food and making things, the creativity of our own hands, are my passions and something I can share with my children daily.   I sometimes think I'm just a little old fashioned.

And I love the nostalgic aura of Mandy Sutcliffe's beautiful illustrations, they make me think of a childhood of warm summer afternoons.  We have a few of the Belle and Boo paper dress up dolls in Mrs Fox's store.

My daughter loves hers, plays with it loads, we've downloaded extra clothes from the Belle and Boo website and she has made up her own designs too.  It just shows how simple, old fashioned toys can turn on a child's creativity.

If your little one's birthday is soon Belle and Boo party-ware is in Mrs Fox's store, a Belle & Boo Party Box for 8 is only £35, it includes invitations and thank you cards, tableware, a pin the tale on the donkey game and cake topper.
