 Top Stocking Filler! Ballet Adventure Book

Our popular Twinklesteps ballet adventure book ‘Twinklesteps and the Disappearing Birdsong’ is a brilliant read either for young readers (age 6 +) or to read to younger children. Learn some ballet moves, meet the Growling Goblin (he’s not that scary really 😉 and discover why all the birdsong has disappeared from Twinklesteps’ garden. This book is aimed to inspire young children to enjoy dancing and has proved popular with fans:

“I so love this book and the beautiful illustrations. My little girl is only 3 1/2 but adored the story and the pictures and asked me to read it three times back to back!”

Dance the Summer Away!

Hellooo everybody, we hope you’re well. As we rattle on towards the summer holidays we thought it was time to share with you some of our fab products to keep your children enjoying masses of dancing and imaginative play all summer long, whether or not they’re too little to have mastered any ballet steps. Our shop is bursting with lovely products so today we want to share with you just a few of our favourites.

First off is our fab sparkly ballet tutu skirt. It has a deliciously gorgeous layer of pale pink tutu net and two overlapping top layers of hot pink tulle. With lots of little holograms that sparkle when they catch the light for that added WOW factor it’s irresistible and will keep your child twirling ballerina turns all summer! We added a soft stretch waist band to make it super comfy and couldn’t resist adding the Twinklesteps logo in hot pink glitter text 🙂 These beautiful skirts are made in the UK so support local when you buy one from our shop here. See how sparkly they are in our video:

We are now selling our very own fantastic range of pink canvas split sole ballet shoes too, with sizes starting from as small as child size 6. The shoes come with attached elastics, so no worrying about having time to sew! We love these shoes, just pull the draw strings for a more snug fit. Even if your child is too young for ballet or has never tried a ballet class, you’ll be amazed how quickly they take to ballerina play once they try on a pair of our ballet slippers. They’ll soon be trying ballerina turns around the house and showing off their ‘ballet moves’. Our ballet shoes are available in our shop here. Make sure you find out just why we love ballet shoes in our blog post here and get some inspiration on ballet steps for young children here.

Finally, every ballerina could do with a bit of magic so don’t forget to pick up one of our little bottles of fairy dust to make the magic complete when you browse in our shop. Twinklesteps loves to take a little bag of fairy dust with her when she goes on one of her adventures too 🙂

We have masses more goodies available in our shop so take a look and we’ll catch up with you again very soon. Happy dancing from the Twinklesteps team 🙂

Make your own magical perfume

Have you ever tried making perfume? Children love this: collecting petals, mixing up colours, smelling, touching and experimenting. We’ve been exploring the garden, with one of our Twinkle fans, to make some magical perfume. We promise that just a drop of this perfume on your toes, along with a big sprinkle of imagination, will have you dancing like Twinklesteps in a jiffy 🙂

You can’t go wrong by starting with lavender, the perfect start to any perfume.

Pick some stalks and pluck the tiny flowers off into a bowl. What other flowers can you find? Roses are beautiful and deliciously fragrant and marigolds add a splash of sunshine into the mix. If your child can’t resist a taste these flowers are all edible too – good news! We had a lot of fun reaching up high and balancing to pick the roses.

You can now add a few dribbles of water, and if you have some fairy dust, now’s the time to sprinkle some in (you can buy fairy dust here). Use a spoon to really squish all the petals – kids love this bit:

Now the only thing that’s left is to find a little bottle – an old vanilla essence or food colouring bottle is perfect. You can then have some fun decorating the bottle and voila, your magical perfume is ready to go. Have some fun and pretend it’s magic. A tiny dab can help you do the perfect arabesque!
