screen568x568 (5) screen568x568 (6) screen568x568 (7)

Perfect for 5 to 11 year olds, the Squeebles games have been featured on BBC Radio, in The Daily Telegraph, The Observer, The Guardian and on numerous app review and educational sites. The Maths Monster has been at it again! This time he’s frightened all Ruby’s customers away from her ice cream and bingo parlour and has stolen all the ice cream ingredients. By answering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems in a fun bingo card game, help Ruby get her ingredients back and convince the 24 Squeeble customers to return.

Make ice creams from over 200 unique ingredients and feed them to the Squeebles, who will give you marks out of ten, depending on how much they like them. Remember though – some of the Squeebles like some very strange flavours!!! Try brussel sprout ice cream with butterscotch sauce, sugar mice and a garlic breadstick! Or how about orange ice cream with pea soup sauce, chocolate pebbles and a lollipop! With over 3 million combinations, there’s something in there for everyone (and every Squeeble!!!)

Holding in the Storm : A Short Film

I wanted to share with my family and friends today, something that was sent to me from a friend. I was completely moved by watching this video today. I could imagine the young man in the video as my son Marley. Although Marley is verbal now, there was a time when he wasn’t. This is a great perspective from those who don’t have the ability to sometimes express what they are feeling and thinking. Please if you find time today, watch this video.

Community Links and Resources COMING SOON!!

Just wanted to let everyone know I am almost finished with a links and resource page. I would have had it done yesterday, but for some reason everyone in the special needs community I live in is hosted an event this weekend. Headed out soon to an event in Sammamish, which will go to three. I cleared my day for tomorrow so hopefully I will have new things to share with everyone then. Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday with their families!!!
