Five Minute Mum

by Daisy Upton

Part of the Five Minute Mum Series

Parenting The Real World

Five Minute Mum Synopsis

Daisy Upton has two little kids. She loves them - but they drive her mad.

So, to try and keep her sanity she started to come up with quick, easy games using stuff from around the house. And @FiveMinuteMum was born.

In her first book, she has collected 150+ games that take 5 minutes to set up & 5 minutes to tidy up.

From pasta posting to alphabet knock down, it's a recipe book for guilt free parenting!

And as Daisy was a teaching assistant, your little ones will be learning while they play! What could be better?

GIVE ME FIVE is the perfect companion for anyone who wants five minutes peace.
