The new Furchester Hotel Magazine launches today!

The new Furchester hotel magazine from cbeebies

Today marks the launch of a brand new Cbeebies magazine aimed at children aged 3 - 6. The Furchester Hotel magazine goes on sale for just £2.75 and is packed full of fun activities to entertain the little ones on these rainy summer days.

If like us, you have a Cbeebies fan, you'll be familiar with the Furchester Hotel which features characters from the popular series Sesame Street, including Elmo and Cookie Monster as well as other special guests of The Furchester Hotel from funny fruit to talking animals!

My four year old Elizabeth was one of the first to receive the magazine and she was very excited by it!

It's packed full of a variety of activities from colouring to mask making, stories and quizzes. The magazine is targeted at four year olds and it was ideal for Elizabeth, really holding her attention and encouraging her to engage and discuss.  Some sections allowed her to enjoy it independently, colouring in, tracing mazes or copying, other sections such as the guest book and the stories we enjoyed together. We cuddled up to read through the story and then she excitedly went through the quiz (getting all the answers right of course!)

Like most other four year olds I know, Elizabeth adores playing with stickers so she was delighted to find that the magazine came with two sheets full of them and she concentrated very hard to get them in the right place.

 Like other magazines from Cbeebies, each issue comes with a free gift and the first issue of the Furchester Hotel comes with a fantastic craft set to make self portraits of the characters! The small box attached to the front of the magazine was packed full of craft materials and frames to create fun 3D pictures of Elmo the Cookie Monster, Phoebe and more...

As well as being packed full of fun educational activities, the magazine also includes a voucher for up to two children to go free at your local SEALIFE centre! A great discount on a really fun day out!
