Sports Day With M&S | Review

I honestly can not believe that my girls will be back at school next month. Where has the year gone? I was recently contacted by Marks & Spencers if I would like to join their School Campaign and host my own sports day. I said yes! I love outdoor activities for the kids. I was given a budget to spend on some sportswear and outdoor toys. I asked my friend if her two kids, Ismail and Aishah would like to join us. She said yes, so we planned to do it today, Monday!

I was a little worried in the morning as I thought maybe we wouldn't have been able to go outside because it had been raining. Luckily, the sun came out and the grass was dry enough for us all to go outside! Yay! We had 4 very excited kids. Although it wasn't very organised, I had forgotten to buy prizes but they were all treated at the end, as you will see at the end of the post.

We were given Next Day Delivery, which was great. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the each clothing we received. The prices were very reasonable for the quality. They will also most definitely last at least a year, with size. My favourite piece of clothing were the black Skorts I chose for the 3 girls from the girls sportswear. I also chose 4 black jackets for them all. Although the black jacket is from the girl section I thought it looked unisex since it was black, and Ismail didn't notice and it looked great on him. I also chose 2 packs of x2 unisex white t-shirts and girls black joggers. Out of the boys sportswear I chose the black joggers.

I also chose 4 outdoor toys. I chose the bumble bee bubbles, which all the kids absolutely loved! I also chose 2 aeroplane makers {which we haven't used yet, but look like a great craft for the kids and only £2!}, wooden yo-yo and a wooden handle skipping rope. These things came in great with our sports day.

We did all kinds of activities during our day. Such as, jumping, skipping, hopping, dribbling a ball, bouncing a ball, catching bubbles and making sweet pots at the end. The day was really fun for all of us. Mia loved trying to show us activities and things to do, she can be a leader at times. What was great during the whole time of this was the kids were well behaved, got a little hyper but no arguments between each other and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Now I will leave you with some photos...

  1. Good fun there, with lots of smiles. The uniforms look very practical . Love the those bee bubbles.
    Thanks for linking #LetKidsBeKids

  2. This is such a great idea from M&S. I never buy anything else as their clothes just keep going and don't wear out as quick as other brands. Only time I need to get them anything new in M&S is when they've grown out of the sizes and at the beginning of term. Thanks for sharing

  3. It looks like you had a great sports day. Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

  8. It looks like you guys had lots of fun on your mini sports day. Love all the photos of the kids racing around and playing different games together. The clothes look great and are hopefully pretty good quality as well if M&S? Love the toys you chose too, can't go wrong with bubbles and a skipping rope.
    Thanks so much for linking up your sports day to #Whatevertheweather :) x

  9. This is great fun. I love the pictures, everyone looks so happy! I love M&S for school stuff (well for clothes in general really). I had to take my little sister recently to get her school uniform and couldn't get over the quality for value for money. We get lots of Evie's baby clothes from there too and they never break and the colours never fade in the wash. What a creative things to do at home too, you should recreate this in summer for those days when they say 'I'm bored!' :-) Thank you so much for linking up to #whatevertheweather x
