A cosy weekend building solar systems!


We've had a really cosy weekend, you know the ones where you just stay in your cosy clothes (or pj's!) all day and just hang out? Wilf declared it one of his favourites ever which reminded me how it's not always about going places but just about being together and having fun.

BEAR got in touch to ask if Wilf would like to check out their new Space Race themed cards and we jumped at the chance because both my kids are obsessed with these snacks. I remember first discovering them when Wilf was about two years old and when he asked for them at the counter initially refusing until I realised they were 100% pure fruit and veg and immediately picked up a pack for him. They have been firm favourites in lunch boxes, after school snacks and always in my backpack for being out and about and either of them get peckish.

I think its important to all parents to make sure their kids are eating well and not getting quick fixes from unhealthy sugary snacks. So if they taste great and are healthy then that is a definite win in my book.


We were kindly send a brilliant space bundle from the team at BEAR to play with including these glow-in-the-dark planets to create a solar system. We though it might be fun to put a sheet over the top of Wilf's bunk to create a back drop for our display.


If you're not aware of BEAR then they all contain these fun cards in each pack. They have done various themes in the past including different counties which we loved collecting but this theme is all about space which is right up our street. We spent most of the afternoon playing 'space races' with the kit we were sent blowing our space characters using straws.

Then stopped for a Yoyo break of course ;)

I love that as well as healthy treat they actually contain one of your five-a-day and the same amount of natural sugar as a small apple.


(this is Wilf playing a magic trick with me haha!)


We had so much fun playing 'Space Racers' with the kit from BEAR and the delicious Yoyo snacks too. A perfect afternoon for my astronaut obsessed little boy (and his mum too!).

Even his little sister got involved once she'd woken from her nap ;)



Do you buy BEAR Yoyos for your kiddos? Are they as into collecting all the cards as mine are?

I was fascinated by the solar system as a kid (and still am to be honest) so this looks really cute x

I don't have any kids to buy Bear treats for, but they way you've described them kinda makes me wanna go out and buy them for myself lol! I used to love space stuff when I was that age too, and having two brothers, we were always playing with rockets and space things, so I know Wilf must have really enjoyed this x

My little boy has a "Bear fruit" a day, so we have loads of cards. He's loving the new range of them. This looks like a fab activity and great day spent.

From being small I was always fascinated with the solar system so would have loved this. BEAR sound like great treats, a really healthy alternative to the usual snacks for children.
