Affordable Summer Fun With Home Bargains
When the sun is shining and the children want to play outside, we declare that day 'Picnic Play Day'. All of the items pictured above are from the wonderful Home Bargains store. We were sent a few items from their new Summer range to test out last week. There was a gorgeous picnic blanket and a handy foldable picnic basket. Lots of plastic cups and ice cream sundae dishes. A huge plastic bowl for crisps or salads and a set of plastic cutlery. All of which are perfect for using outside. In our package we also received a lovely paddling pool, a foil kite, a ball catcher set and lots of lovely character labeled bubbles which the kids loved!
Lily loved the ball catching toy although she didn't like it when she missed the ball as you can see in this picture. I used to have one of these when I was younger so they brought back lots of great memories. We had lots of fun playing catch with these yesterday.
Ryan on the other hand is more of a bubble monster, he just loves blowing bubbles. His blue Dora bottle was fantastic, it's bubble wand had lots of different sized holes in it to make all sorts of bubbles. One dip of the wand made lots of lovely bubbles, it was fab!
My favourite items had to be the beautiful bright picnic blanket which was super soft and so pretty. It was a great size, not too big to carry but big enough for us all to fit on. I also loved the foldable picnic basket which was so cool. I'd never seen one of these before so I was very impressed. It was very sturdy and looked great, it also fit a lot in it too. We managed to fit all of the items we were sent snuggly into it and there was still room left over.
We may have only had our picnic in our garden this time but with beautiful items like this, next time it's the local park. I'd be more than happy to show them off in public. Our Home Bargains picnic items were all made of good quality materials and looked great. The prices are affordable and always very low. Overall I was really impressed with our loot.
Mummy Of 3 Diaries scored the Home Bargains picnic items a very well deserved 3/5. We loved all the items and will be using them over and over again throughout the Summer.
Disclosure: We were sent the above items for free for the purpose of this review but that does not in any way influence me. All the opinions expressed are 100% honest and my own.
