‘Give Me Five’ By Daisy Upton Aka Five Minute Mum Is Now Available To Pre-order!


With Summer now well and truly over and the unavoidable rainy weekends dawning on us- every parent will be in need of easy, fun, and most importantly, quick entertainment for their restless children! This is where Daisy Upton aka Five Minute Mum has come to save the day:

Daisy Upton has two little kids. She loves them – but they drive her mad. To stop the endless ‘what’s next, mum?’ when they were really tiny, she started to come up with quick, easy games using stuff from around the house. And @FiveMinuteMum was born.

This book is a collection of over 150 fun games that take five minutes to set up and, even more crucially five minutes to tidy up again: a recipe book for guilt-free parenting. From pasta posting to alphabet knock down, all of the ideas draw on Daisy’s time as a teaching assistant to sneak some learning into the fun, and help those who spend time with little kids feel like the daunting is doable! 

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

Praise for the book:

“I love Five Minute Mum. She’s managed to come up with a huge array of activities for kids that are fun and educational yet don’t require an Art degree or Diploma in Patience to execute.”

Sarah Turner, aka Unmumsy Mum
