TeamStein Mummy

Hi I'm Charlotte, a Yorkshire Mummy of 4 Children ranging from teens to littles. I'm very passionate about sharing our outnumbered family life through our love of exploring the outdoors, learning through play activities and my desire for an organised and homely lifestyle. I love nothing more than a cup of coffee whilst planning our next adventure, seasonal activity or home and lifestyle project.

Visiting Yorkshire Lavender

July 18, 2019

We have been fortunate to live close enough to a local hidden gem, Yorkshire Lavender at Terrington, York. This is such a firm favourite of ours to visit not just for when the lavender is flowering but the whole season it’s open. I think the main reason this spot is really something special is down to the breathtaking views that make you feel like you’re…

Thames & Kosmos Master Detective Toolkit Review

*Gifted Product Review* We were sent the Thames & Kosmos Master Detective Toolkit to review recently. With a suggested age of 8+ this seemed ideal for our 10yo, and maybe our 13yo too. What we didn’t realise was just how much our 5yo got into the spirit of it, even dressing up as James Bond to play Detective/Spy! The spy kit comes in a cool…

Kooties Coveralls Review ~ Play Dirty and Stay Clean

July 16, 2019

*Gifted Product Review* Kooties really caught my eye for a few reasons; environmental, practical, and fun. So I was keen to find out more about the product and for Teddy and Flo to put them to the test. First off here is some background into Kooties.

Basically there isn’t quite as much organisation and it’s more about how to keep your shit together for the month as a parent.  A few organisational tips just for your own sanity but no hints to what jobs are good to…

Living Arrows 28~52

July 14, 2019

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran We managed to quickly snap a photo of all 4 whilst on a presstrip to Castle Howard this week. The park was busy with children and the light shining in the wrong place but I love the happiness on their faces at visiting the awesome new park. This week…

Tips for Keeping Kids Entertained in the Car

July 12, 2019

We’re going on a pretty long road trip this Summer and so with that in mind I wanted to get organised ahead and start planning the in-car entertainment, so then nearer the time I can just focus on the packing and then having fun.  Having four children of various ages all in close proximity to each other for tormenting, hitting and generally annoying the heck…

Best Beach Games For Families

July 8, 2019

We love a family beach day. We love visiting the beach at different times of the year and exploring the coast in all sorts of weather. We find slightly cooler days work for us better, as we can be a bit more active with the kids and don’t need to worry about them getting too hot and applying suncream all then time. It makes for…

Living Arrows 27~52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran I will keep this fairly short as I’m writing this quite late as we returned from a weekend away in Scotland at the in-laws. They really enjoyed meeting our niece’s cockapoo puppy Maisie and I’m sure I’m going to be getting more pressure for a four legged addition to…
