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!
