Playing cards - rummy and snap were today's favourites.
Sometimes the only place to get things done is under the table.
Panda Girl loves Hello Kitty. Today, because she's been so lovely, she was rewarded with a Hello Kitty cupcake pack. Easy to make, not that healthy, but good for teamwork and good for fun.
After the Boy's nursery the children caught up with friends at the park and then The Boy spent 3 hours at home with his friend on a playdate, where he helped her make a pumpkin face, a 'doingy' spider, a firework picture and showed her how to flip paper-plate pancakes in Mummy's frying pan.
The Boy loves to have something set up to do on his desk first thing in the morning. I set him out a leaf lacing card (here it is after he'd completed it).
I sleepily took this next photo, from the warmth of my bed early this morning. My Boy had dressed himself and snuggled in with Mummy for cuddles before we laced up the leaf together. What a lovely way to wake up :)
Apple pie slices. The boy had to find objects in the house which began with these letters.
Firework Chinese lanterns
I love these children.
Testosterone fuelled letter practice.
Tissue paper and paper plate apple cores (with sunflower seed pips)
Paper plate hedgehogs
Later the Boy went swimming with his good friend :) and the girls went to gym, tap and modern dancing.
This was a hit. Selling apples by the kilo in the farm shop: a happy hour's worth of role-playing this morning and both Panda Girl and The Boy learnt about kg and adding smaller or larger apples to make whole kilos. Our wonderful neighbour even paid a visit and bought 3 cooking apples for a real 50p. The kiddies were delighted.
The two littlies made an autumnal sensory jar.
...while the two eldest chose some stick projects from this wonderful site:
