Spring Fun

So 3 days left at school… and the Easter half term begins, what am I possibly going to do with three children for 2 weeks.. I know I definitely need to stock up on red wine!!!

I have heard we are meant to get snow over the Easter period….great I best get to shops now and panic buy bread!!!! I joke, I’m definitely not a panic buyer, in fact I can never understand why people do such things!

So I have put 7 ideas together to do at home in case it does snow! But if it doesn’t and we actually have a warm spring, then we definitely be at the park with our picnic 😉

1. Build a Den with Blankets and Pillows

Build a den out of the sofa cushions, chairs, clothes rack with a blanket draped over or create a fort out of a big cardboard box with packing tape to hold the sides together.

2. Indoor Treasure Hunt

– a selection of things to do
– things to find
– fun activities to help pass the time!

All you have to do is provide each child with their printed treasure hunt and a small box to collect their items!

3. Create a Play/Show

Have the children put on a play or show (don’t forget to film it!)

4. Make special cards or write a letter

Everyone loves to receive a personal letter/card in the post these days, as is such a rarity! This would be a special treat for Grandparents or even cousins. Use stamps, glitter, paints and create a card to send or give to their relatives. Good opportunity for older children to practice their handwriting too!

5. Lego-Building Contest

Most houses have lego, so why not spent a wet day having a lego-building contest. Pick a theme e.g. vehicles, single coloured blocks etc. and let them loose constructing.

6. Make jewellery

If you don’t have jewellery crafts at home, you can use everyday items, like pasta, noodles, beads, paint, string, to make fashionable master pieces.

7. Balloon Ping-Pong

All you need is some balloons, and either table-tennis bats, or make your own bats using paper plates and sticks for handles. Clear some space in the hall and off they go.

If your children are anything like mine, and has a attention spam of a dead fly, then my suggestion is open that bottle of wine and let them trash the house.

Good Luck 😉

Battling the twin’s bedtime

Is it just me, but the older children get the worse the attitude becomes!!!

Elle and Mikey are now 4 years old, what happened to them nights where you gave them a bottle and wrapped them up and boom!!! Fast asleep!

Why did they have to grow into little people that love to argue, love to back chat like they are 16!!! If I hear “I said NO” one more time they be sleeping in the garden with the slugs!!!

Elle and Mikey have shared a room since they were born. In the last week I have decided to split them up, and now do not share the same room.

Elle seems to sleep so much better, Mikey isn’t waking her up like he wakes everyone up, Mikey isn’t enjoy being in his own room, he misses “annoying Elle” in Mikey’s words…

I have found it a a lot easier in separate rooms, I can still hear the patter of feet running along the floor boards, but I only have to go upstairs once Max twice a night now!

Being a single mummy, it’s nice to get the evening to yourself instead of running up and down the stairs! However my evenings never consist of “mummy time” what even is “mummy time” is that where you doing all the cleaning and washing when children are asleep?? As that’s pretty much what my evening consist of, night in, night out!!!

Marley does Jado Kuin Do

So Marley has had an opportunity to start Jado Kuin Do, here is our review after 4 weeks.

What is Jado Kuin Do?

Family Martial Arts, developing confidence, better concentration, discipline , coordination and balance, leadership skills, teaching young people to have inner strength.

Marley is really enjoying Jado Kuin Do. At first Marley had no coordination and definitely no balance after 4 weeks I can see a huge difference, Marley is concentration a lot more than he has in the last 3 weeks.

Marley attends the Jado Kuin Do in the Thame  sports centre he is taught by a trained and qualified instructor called John and his 2 daughters, I find the group well lead with lots of fun and games to amuse the children but also there is discipline to learn.

I wish I put Marley into this group earlier as he really enjoys it. Marley’s has asked if he can attend everyday.

Jado Kuin Do is held all around the country in the UK to find your local group follow this link:http://www.wjo.org.uk/
