Evening everyone, gosh hasn’t it got baltic all of a sudden?! Jeepers, I’ve been foundered every time I step out of the house. J had an exceptional closure today so I’m afraid I was a very lazy mummy and kept S off pre school too and myself and my 3 amigos had a pj day! It was fab! We lazed around in our pj’s, snuggled on the sofa under duvets, did some gingerbread men crafting and baking and bathing!!
We’ve really enjoyed the past week with our gingerbread activities. It’s been great to have a wee focus and also I have LOVED having messages and comments from all you guys here, and on Facebook telling me about what you have been getting up to and how you have been joining in. Thanks so much – it really means a lot to know that there are people out there who enjoy our little spot on t’internet!
So, this week our theme is going to be SNOWMEN! I absolutely adore “The Snowman”, and more recently with the addition of The Snow Dog. So we will definitely be reading that book this week and watching the film. Good old Olaf has also become a favourite around here too, so no doubt he will feature too. But for most of our activities I’m just going for a regular old Frosty the Snowman type! Call me old fashioned, but 9 times out of 10, tradition will always win with me! (I am Presbyterian ya know!! ;) )
So, this week you will need :
cream of tartar
rich tea biscuits
toilet roll tube
And the activities we hope to do are:
Make white / snowy playdough
Handprint / fingerprint cards
White snow puffy paint
Snowmen water play
We will also try to do a version of this with our fridge:
We also hope to have a themed breakfast at some point, we had one last year and it was a huge hit with all of us!!
Tomorrow I am off shopping with my sisters, there’ll be Christmas coffees, lunches, snacks, more coffees, a wee visit to The Christmas Market….I cannot wait!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you Monday for some Frosty fun.
