Off Topic - But Exciting and Terrifying news for me.

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
After over two years my Sister has agreed to bring my Niece and Nephew to visit me and Mum (Granny in this case) on Sunday.
On the condition I bribe them with pizza..

I'm terrified as I will be a stranger to them, How Mum will react to her Grandchildren.

Can someone help me, what is the cool toy to buy for 3-4 year olds?
Hi Stephen,
How exciting.

If you are feeling brave, you could always buy the pizza bases and have the toppings prepared ready for them to build their own pizzas.

Re presents, I don't know what's in vogue. You could always look on the Mumsnet website/ forum. You could ask your sister what their current interests are. E.g. Arts and crafts, garden/ sport stuff/ cars/ role play etc Some websites allow you to list by different criteria e.g most popular and toy shop assistants would be able to say what was selling best.

Hope all goes well. Little children are fun, entertaining but exhausting.

If you are not feeling brave, perhaps buy 2 small/medium pizzas, one of which is plain cheese and tomato and the other more adventurous. You don't want to find that pepperoni is too spicy for them for example. Some sort of cake for afterwards? Again not too exotic and ice cream or ice lollies inn the freezer could be good. Crisps? Perhaps some of those tiny yogurt pots and pack of chocolate biscuits.
If you want something for them to play with then sticker books or good old colouring books and crayons will while away some time.Hopefully your sister will bring a few toys to keep them busy.
Hope all goes well.
Good luck with the visit, Stephen. I was going to mention ice-cream and sticker books too. have some wet wipes handy too for the mess!

If you can pop to your local supermarket, they will have a good range of sticker books.

Most importantly enjoy,
Anne
Hope you all enjoy your visit!
I agree that creating their own pizza is the best way. Buy several small or medium bases then have a selection of toppings for them to add themselves
Cheese
Jar of tomato pasta sauce for spreading as the base
Ham
Chicken
Sweet corn
Pepperoni
Peppers
A few olives
Some herbs for sprinkling, perhaps some basil
Perhaps fresh tomato slices

It needn't cost a fortune as you need small amounts of everything except the cheese - you'll need lots of that
Cake and fresh grapes and/or melon for pudding.
You will be best Uncle ever

I wouldn't worry about presents, that can wait.
Some individual Mr. Kipling cakes, some crisps, some yoghurt, maybe sausage rolls. Tesco do about 40 for £1 frozen, take them home and cook them in the oven. Scrumptious.
