A trip to the West End

It’s been a while since we ticked any stations from our London Underground List. This morning we started out from North Acton so we stopped for the photo opportunity. We were heading into the West End for the Hobbycraft Christmas preview which was the only Christmas in July show I wanted to attend.

We had a great time and Big Brother was really well behaved. He was excited to see some of the Christmas ranges and even started suggesting things we could make!

Hobbycraft Gruffalo kits

We both loved these Gruffalo kits which will soon be hitting stores, we can’t wait to make some fun masks! Big Brother enjoyed a cake pop and I made a duck tape bow and we both had a great time.

Then it was on to the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. We hadn’t been for ages but we knew we would have a fun time. Big Brother ran around stamping his ticket, drove trains and asked lots of questions as usual. We just about managed to visit their latest exhibition – Goodbye Piccadilly: From Home Front to Western Front – which was really interesting.

Big Brother which his completed ticket – his favourite thing about visiting the London Transport Museum.

Our final stop was the Disney Store in Covent Garden. Big Brother was treated to Pontoon Dusty and Dipper from the new Planes 2 Fire & Rescue film we saw at the weekend. There are lots of tie-in toys so I expect we shall be back for more soon.

We made it back home just in time to pick Little Sis up at 1, not bad for a mornings’ work :)

First day of the Summer holidays

So today we woke up to the first day of the Summer holidays. The weather was hot and sunny (again) so we headed to our local park. It was full of Big Brother’s friends from nursery so we stayed and played for a while before it got too hot.

When we got home we filled the tuff spot with water for some water play. It was a bit small for two so perhaps we should get the paddling pool out!

The children have been sharing a room (and the air-con unit) for the last couple of nights. They’ve been perfectly happy with their mattresses on the floor and haven’t been staying up talking toooo late. Tonight we decided to convert Little Sis’ cot into a Big Girl’s Bed. It only took a couple of minutes and she loved the result :)

Last day of nursery

Today was the last day Big Brother was at nursery. In the morning we headed off to The Creation Station, learned all about diamonds and made a beautiful kite.

It involved using sticky back plastic which we love crafting with.

When we had decorated the kite we made a tail from a stick of willow and decorated it with ribbons and pipe cleaners.

Then it was time to go to nursery for the last time – someone was quite happy about the prospect of his summer holidays!
