Any parent knows how hard it can be to entertain and stimulate our children during the summer holidays. Over the years I’ve found it pays to have a bag of tricks at hand whenever I head out with the family be it on a shopping trip, lunch date or routine visit to the dentist. If there’s any chance we’ll be waiting or needing to sit still the bag of tricks comes into play! I was recently invited to review Aura Print who sent me a very cute pack of summer holiday themed Snap cards. Perfect for those times when I need to throw distractions at the kids. Here’s what I thought…

I was sent a cute pack of summer themed snap cards perfect for taking to Brighton on a lunch date with my 6 year old son. The cards are really well made with a soft, silky feel to the touch. The images are bright, fun and playful with clear text that’s easy to read for both of us! We played snap several times whilst waiting for our lunch to arrive bringing a smile to both of our faces.
After lunch we headed down to Brighton seafront and played real life snap by trying to spot as many seaside features from the cards as we could. We managed quite a few including seagulls, ice creams and sunglasses – it wasn’t a sunny day so a few were hard to spot.
I’m really impressed with the colour, concept and quality of the cards. These will be taking permanent residence in my bag of tricks and will be joining us on many more family fun days out!
