Summer Dreams

Everyone loves a treasure hunt right?  It’s time to dream big this summer, and join in with the magical and splendiferous world of The BFG, who has left a trail of Dream Jars all across London for human beans to find. The BFG Dream Jar Trail is in London this Summer until Aug 31st.
The public art installation has captured the childhood dreams and aspirations of 50 celebrities and corked them into giant Dream Jars.  The Jars are dotted around London in key locations. If you're looking for a fun free outing with the kids, you can follow trails as you amble around the sights.  Don't forget to tweet us your pics and selfies to @mapgiftshop, there's a Phizz-Whizzing prize for the one we like the best. 
Alice's particular favourite is YouTube sensation Zoella's Dream "For the love of the Hedgehog".  My favourite of the ones we have found so far is Sadiq Khan's "City of Dreams", situated on Tower Bridge, plus it is a gloriumptious place to enjoy an ice cream!

We've launched some fun new games in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the world’s number 1 story teller - Roald Dahl, and his world renowned and touching Classic The BFG. The film, directed by Stephen Spielberg is screening across the UK this Summer.  

The jars will then be auctioned off to benefit Save the Children and Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's charity.

Hands up if your Teacher deserves a Gold Star!

Teachers are probably the most underrated yet the most powerful professionals out there. Their work has a long term impact on not just the lives of the children they teach, but on society as a whole. They have the power to shape generations, impact minds and make the world a better place.  

Our children's school years will be a priceless memory, thanks to the teachers who always make sure they are happy.  I don't know about yours but I know my own children don't always remember to say Thank You so we have put together a collection of ideas to say thanks for giving our LITTLE ones BIG dreams!
