One of my favourite TV shows growing up was Give Us A Clue, I love a bit of charades because I love guessing games and the state that some people can get themselves into when trying to act out their prompt.  Chicken Charades is a fun twist on the classic game of charades because, yes . . . → Read More: Get Chicken Charades out this Christmas!

We do love our tablet PC’s in the Mummy Matters household.  Personally I think they are a great starting point for the whole family from young to old because of their ease of access and handy size.
