Daisy Upton has two little kids. She loves them – but they drive her mad.
So, to try and keep her sanity she started to come up with quick, easy games using stuff from around the house. And @FiveMinuteMum was born.
In her first book, she has collected 150+ games that take 5 minutes to set up & 5 minutes to tidy up.
From pasta posting to alphabet knock down, it’s a recipe book for guilt free parenting!
And as Daisy was a teaching assistant, your little ones will be learning while they play! What could be better?
GIVE ME FIVE is the perfect companion for anyone who wants five minutes peace.
“I love Five Minute Mum. She’s managed to come up with a huge array of activities for kids that are fun and educational yet don’t require an Art degree or Diploma in Patience to execute.”Sarah Turner, aka Unmumsy Mum
From the Publisher
Looking after little ones is amazing – but have you ever…
• Felt stuck for what to do
• Spent hours setting up an intricate, wholesome activity – only to find yourself playing it alone?
• Given up and resorted to screen time?
Then this is the book for you!
Ideas for children aged from one to five, brought together in one easy-to-use manual, where each game includes a set of tabs that show the skills promoted and the appropriate age for players
Games use items you already have at home – and Daisy suggests alternatives so you don’t need to buy anything extra. There’s also a handy guide to creating the ultimate rainy day ‘survival kit’.
Daisy’s background as a former early years teaching assistant means children will be learning valuable skills like phonics, numeracy or motor skills from each of the games without even realising!
