Today J asked for me to recreate a play activity that we had done over a year ago. I didn’t think it had been that big of a deal, but it seemed to have made an impression on him and he wanted it done again, so we did. It has been a fab day! The sun has been shining, the kids have played together so, so well and I have really LOVED watching and listening and playing along too. I think the sun has some sort of special power for making everyone and everything feel better 🙂
We created “Bovis Village” in our own little plot …… I drew out rounds and roundabouts for their bikes and cars, and we improvised with what we could to create shops and businesses. Let your imagination help you out here!
This was our sports store – some items had been purchased by the time I got my camera!
This little area was the ‘Car Wash’.
This area is the mechanics/garage – the water table acting as the jack to raise the trike!
This was the builders yard – if you were building a house, you were welcome to come and collect your sand and other supplies!
Up this end we had Tesco – full of all supplies from our recycling bin and a tin of beans which somehow managed to get opened and dispersed around the whole garden!
You can also see our main road drawn out, leading to all local amenities!
It literally took minutes to set up, (as you can tell!) but they had a ball – ALL. DAY. So much fun pretending to be mummy / daddy / a mechanic / a builder / a shop assistant etc…..etc……..
Not only did they have fun, but I also got a chance to drink several FULL, HOT cups of coffee, read some of my book….dare I say it, it was quite a relaxed, chilled out day for me – win, win situation 😉
On a completely different note altogether, I got some blood results back today which might explain my overwhelming tiredness of late. My iron count, (is that even the right term?!) is low – it’s meant to sit at around 12 – mine is 7. Soooooo, if any of you have any great smoothie recipes involving spinach, or any iron rich recipes for dinner please send them my way! I’m not really liking the idea of taking 3 iron tablets a day!!!!!! I’m serious by the way, any tips for getting my iron levels up and keeping them up would be much appreciate xx
