Summer holidays are the best!

I am so lucky, I now only work during term time. So I get to have 5 whole weeks off with my 3 little rascals!

We are a little over half way in and we have had some lovely days. We have been to some workshops that have been either free or rather cheap at local places. Today was pirate Lego making. 

I took Marley and my nephew, Cole along with my partner and his son. They are all similar ages so was a good boys day which promoted working as a team as well as individual little projects. The boys all seemed to really enjoy it! 

We have also been to messy play workshops where the children have potato printed onto material and then turned the material into little bags! Such a sweet idea. 

It’s been so nice to see the older girls enjoy the little things and being creative and silly again. School really does seem to have an effect on them which makes them act older than their years. Now I feel like I have children again instead of mini teenagers, I definatly have to keep on top of the activities that keep them creative and young.

Red nose day fun!

So, today is red nose day and at school and work all the children have been getting in the spirit and raising money.

Now the girls are getting that bit older they aren’t quite as keen to go all out with the silliness, at least until they have seen a few friends doing it too. Was a red top, tights and lippy for Laila. Hallie and Marleys school did a ‘do something funny for money’ day, Marley went as WWE superstar, Ryback. Hallie wore odd socks and odd shoes.

There were boys dressed as girls and girls dressed as boys, underwear on top of clothes and pants on heads! It’s great to see the ones who really get into a theme. 

I work in a private nursery, we had babies to pre-schoolers dressed in red, faces painted while making red arts and crafts and decorating biscuits and cupcakes to take home.  

I have no doubt that lots of money has been raised all over the country for comic relief today!!! Kx
