We have recently discovered this website created by Andrea a wife and mum to four energetic boys ages 3-10 who creates lots of simple science experiments, math games and craft projects mostly with items you can find around the house.
Andreas says she is not a particularly crafty person and I don’t have a lot of time to do complex projects so I always try to keep things simple. My goal is to foster a love of learning and keep them entertained and interested at the same time.

Nick Cope’s Popcast - Brand NEW TV Series
We are over the moon with the response we have seen from parents and children for our first TV series - Nick Cope’s Popcast, which is on CBeebies channel at 9.20am every Saturday morning - and the full boxset on the iPlayer. Nick’s amazing Popcast songs are the most catchy and wonderful songs you will ever hear and simply perfect to lift the mood and get you singing along.
This Saturdays Popcast episode is “Take a Walk” where Nick and his grandson Remie wave goodbye to the city and say hello to the countryside. If you are doing your one allowed outdoor activity this weekend, then this is the perfect song to get into your head.
PAW Patrol -
In PAW Patrol Pawsome Missions children can create an avatar of themselves as they look in the real world and get to work alongside Ryder, choosing their physical appearance and outfits. Kids then explore Adventure Bay by walking around, completing missions, meeting characters, collecting paw points and roleplaying a day in the life of the Paw Patrol.
The gamers also use the Pup Pad just like Ryder in an immersive 3D digital world, collaborating with different pups for specific quests. Each pup has a unique skill set and a house that turns into a vehicle specific to their personality.
Join our testing team?
Complete Control are always looking for young helpers to play test some of the new games we're working on right now - and need children to help us. Let us know on FaceBook if your child would like to help us test the latest games we are working before and they will be the first children to play them before they are released to the public. Super COOL!
We will send you links to new games as and when they are ready to play test at home - but once the coronavirus has blown away we also invite parents and children to the Complete Control studio to play the games and get free goodies - and is always such fun.
Be the first to hear about game testing sessions, helpful articles, play ideas and Complete Control updates, that your kids will thank you for!
