SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2014 DAY 6

Day 6 was spent back at the SEN centre for their family fun day! We caught up with lots of friends that we have not seen for many, many months. 
We enjoyed a BBQ and noisy flying balloons! Party blowers and party poppers!


We did a spot of fossil hunting on the sand tracks around the centre.


Enjoyed the fort with friends!


Got have a ride on Lionel the train!


Decorated paper plate birds in the art room.



Brendan constructed something that would explode with party poppers when opened!


The boys also enjoyed a late afternoon water fight at a friends house and then watched the new Lego movie DVD that we bought!

SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2014 DAY 5

Day 5. Very much enjoyed today as it was my day off and a day that I could focus on being with my boys and not having to share my time. I love my job very much but I also treasure the days I can spend with my own children.
 Today was spent mainly at the local play centre for SEN children.
We had a fabby time in the sensory room.



There was also a lot of time spent in the sand pit, which is probably the place that my boys like to be most of all!


After our day out we went home for showers and a chill out. It was short lived though as my sister called and asked us to do an emergency run to the wildlife hospital with a Glis Glis that had been attacked by a cat outside her work. Here is the lovely little thing. Hoping he is ok and makes a full recovery!


In the evening Heather and I ended a very busy but fun weeks childminding, by relaxing on the village green with a fish and chips from the pub, chatting and watching the clouds! My boys ran around with friends and  got to stay up late!

Day 4 was spent enjoying the sun at our favourite secret spot! We got to pet animals, play in the river, have a picnic and afternoon tea and play on the climbing frame! What more could you ask for!



Fantastic way to cool off on such a hot day!





Stopping for a picnic before heading home!

SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2014 DAY 3

Day 3 and lots of outdoor play today. There has been a lovely breeze which as has kept things slightly less sticky. We enjoyed more junk modelling. Today it was Star Trek ships, influenced by Brendan, who has finally broken up for the summer! Much talk of warp speeds and warp nacelles. 


We had a lovely picnic with Heather and her gang on the village green.


We played in the park and on the skate ramps. Brendan decided he was not going to get dressed for this trip and came in his PJ's!  Here he is burying the girls feet and they are being plants! We are growing children!


We told them we would come back and water them later! :-)


We made quite a lot of sticker pictures and drawings this afternoon.



The water beads have been enjoyed. Milk bottle tops and frogs have been added. There were also some curtain rings thrown in and some giant bugs came for a munch.



We also spent a lot of time in the pool, playing with littlest pet shop and happy land toys, watched a Pokemon movie, read some more books towards our reading challenge and took photos with the Kiddizoom cameras.

SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2014 DAY 2

Day 2 started off with more junk modelling. Kenzie built an arena for his Pokemon battles. 


Little "R"created this lovely piece of art with lots of tubes sticking out of it!


She also made this really sweet house. It has a princess Anna and Queen Elsa peg doll in it as well.



"E" made herself a centipede house. I bought some plastic bugs at the weekend and she really does love bugs! Often we find real ones in the homes she makes! She also made a clay centipede to live in the house as sadly she could not take my new ones home!


I love how she labelled this box! Awesome kiddie writing!


Kenzie made treasure chests for a game that he made up. He then hid them and played hot and cold with the younger children while I made lunch. They loved his new game!





We had lots of fun with some sensory play. Shaving foam and glow sticks!





Little "M" is not at all herself today and slept for a good chunk of the day. She did have a little play with a bit of shaving foam. We had to be super careful though as she wanted to eat it!


I had popped some water beads in to a bowl of water for tomorrows activity but I noticed that some were being snuck in to the shaving foam as well!


We set up a little water bath for the tortoises as the weather was so hot and we thought it might cool them down and refresh them. They seemed to enjoy it very much before climbing back out again!


Happy land was a big hit as always and our new fold out play mat/ storage box arrived! Little "R" set these figures up and told me they were queuing to by tickets to the beach. Each one bought a ticket and went through the gate but found only the new road. they were not impressed so went back to their spaces. I asked her if she would like to make them a beach and she thought that would make them all happy again! So we did with some fabric off cuts!


We popped over to see Aunty Heather and Kenzie helped to shell her peas!


Little "M", despite being quite grizzly and needing lots of TLC today, did enjoy a few things independently. Like posting these reels in to a box!


We also enjoyed some Lego Batman on the Wii, Dressing up, reading books for our Summer holiday reading challenge and crawling through tunnels in the garden!

SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2014 DAY 1

My most favourite time of year is here. The time that gives me 6 weeks with my boys and no schedule to follow. It is lovely to spend a day exactly how we want to!

Day 1 started with lots of Junk modelling. Kenzie made a Pokecentre with a little bit of mummy help. He did the creative stuff and I did the hot glue gun work! This is going to be a great toy for him to enjoy with his little plastic Pokemon figures! Who doesn't like free toys and helping the environment, by reducing waste at the same time.




This is nurse Joy, Chansey and Pikachu



Little "L" and little "R" made Frozen castles and little Queen Elsa peg dolls! More free toys to enjoy. They played with these a lot in the afternoon before taking them home in the evening.



"E" and Kenzie had a look through Pokemon cards and did some trading. I learnt what  holo's and reverse holo's are!


Kenzie and little "X" enjoyed one of our new games that we picked up from the carboot sale. It is a bit of a twist on the Jenga idea. 


We also enjoyed the pool in the garden, Happy land figures and lots of safari animal small world play.
We spent the morning at the local Play bus that visits the village and the older boys played on the skate ramp and enjoyed games of hide an seek while the little ones joined in with finger rhymes and action songs, stories, free play and cutting and sticking.
