Football kit at Littlewoods – playing away for all the family

Football kit at Littlewoods – playing away for all the family

Keeping the kids focused on homework with World Cup fever at its height can be tricky, especially if they’re footy fans. So talking with a few of the other mums, we’ve come up with a plan to make the World Cup as much of a learning experience as possible!

They all want the England shirts of course, and Littlewoods have a great selection of top brands, but there’s some fab football kit inspired by the other nations too. So how about genning up on the Brazil rainforests if they’d like to get this great Brazil hoody? It’s a warm cover-up for boys and girls and a great talking point to start them off thinking about the wider world. Or you could try to start an interest in languages by getting them to count to 10 like Dora the Explorer in Spanish and treat them to this smart Spain zip-through top? If they could pick out ‘boot’ shaped Italy on a map it might make grandparents pick out Puma’s great value two-piece Italy mini kit for cute bambinos!

So this weekend we moved the ‘My First World Map’ downstairs, next to the football wall chart so we can start to learn the country locations, flags, motifs and capital cities, game by game once the tournament kicks off. (And I do mean ‘we’, our family geography was shocking – Ivory Coast, Serbia, Slovakia, anyone?) The idea is that by June we’ll know where Nike’s Portugal away shirt comes from and where you’d play in this Germany home shirt by Adidas. It makes if fun for kids and the whole football thing less tedious for me!

But I’m doing my bit. I’ve already picked out this cute South Africa T-shirt with England foil print and on trend stud detail. Not only that, it’s the perfect excuse to dance about the house singing ‘Free Nelson Mandela’. Belting out Special AKA on the iPod Touch feeling like I’m 16 again. Though trying to explain a) the political history of South Africa and b) what actually is Ska music, mum – before breakfast is a challenge for anyone don’t you think? Any tips or world cup family ideas, v welcome – do comment below…

    When I look at

    your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it

    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

    Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog

    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
    platform like

    WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely

    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well,

    almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than

    that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off

    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when

    browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a
    theme or plugin that

    might be able to correct this problem. If you have any
    suggestions, please share.

    With thanks!
