OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love sunny mornings on a cool winters day. Watching the girls play, amazing how a box of socks can keep them entertained. This painted wooden box is kept next to the front door, the girls can easily grab a pair of socks for themselves before putting on their shoes before we head out for the day. of course it has also become a station of amusement and play- the youngest throwing them about and the eldest sorting them out.

HERE COMES THE SUN…AND WATER FUN.

The sun has finally come out to play and it was time to get out all those summer toys that have been packed away gathering spider webs and dust. At first we checked that there were no RED BACK SPIDERS hanging around. We filled a bucket with soapy water and my little one just loved cleaning all her toys. Such fun, kids love being given a small responsibility that makes them feel as though they are doing something grown up.

STICK STICK STICK!

I had such fun the other day shopping for creative bits for my now 3 year old poppet. In Australia we have a discount store called ‘the reject shop’, and oh my, is it a fabulous place to find arts and crafts for youngins…and its super cheap! anyhow, i collected a mass of exciting alphabet, number and farm animal stickers. they have these peel off backs that make it super easy for little sausage fingers to cope with. Also in the shopping basket was a stack of multicoloured pieces of paper scraps and fluffy pom poms.The alphabet and number stickers are great for practicing and teaching counting and recognition of letters and numbers. I also found these great storage boxes to house all the bits and pieces. I have a small kiddies table set up in our living room where our little munchkin does all her creative activities- she just loves it,and she can keep busy for quite some time.

CHALK BOARD FUN

 

We had some broken picture frames lying around, where the glass had actually broken. Mr B painted them with chalk board paint. Our little munchkin loves to sit outside with us and scribble  works of chalk art.  The great thing is we can move them around to different areas of our backyard depending on where the sunshine is.
