Wickey Sand Pit Competition

The summer holiday has been long and tiring, I love my children dearly but not having a break for so long can be exhausting.  I do not have a job outside of the house to enjoy a change of scenery, it’s just been the boys and me and long days spread out ahead of us on repeat for seven weeks.  Think Groundhog Day but with similar arguments all the time!

So next summer I think I need to be better prepared.  Having recently moved we do not have a huge amount of garden toys to match our bigger garden I think its time to think about filling it!  If the garden offered more in the way of interest for the boys, I am sure they would be keen to be outside for longer, benefiting from all the fresh air and the noise they make would be diffused a little so better for my poor head.

We have a trampoline already but having stumbled on Wickey I am tempted by the sheer choice of outdoor toys!  My boys are semi feral now; they need to be busy, climbing, jumping, and swinging.  I want them so tired they do not have the energy for anymore sibling squabbles.

I think I definitely need to research climbing frames I am guilty of always telling my boys to be careful, which is supposedly not very good parenting!


Children need the opportunity to make their own decisions so they cope better through life when they need to make difficult choices.  If we had a climbing frame I would have to learn not to say watch out, go slowly and be careful so much!  From choice I would wrap them up in cotton wool but I must not do that and let them develop as well rounded individuals who can manage as adults.

I was offered a Wickey Flip Sand pit 120x125cm (£69.66) to review but we already have a sand pit so I thought it would be nice to offer it up as a competition for my lovely followers.  This is the prize itself; all you will need to do is supply the sand and the children!  The flip lid is handy to keep the sand nice and fresh.


If you would like to win then simply complete the rafflecopter below by the 20th of September and then hopefully your next holiday with your children will be easier as you have more to keep them entertained!
