On the trail of Paddington Bear

This morning we headed into the West End to watch a preview of the new Get Santa film. It was very funny and we all enjoyed it. After a quick stop for lunch we went looking for the Paddington Bears statues, there are 50 of them dotted around London. We stuck to the area around Leicester Square and Covent Garden and found all of these:

Blush by Nicole Kidman

The Bear of London by Boris Johnson

Bearodiversity by Peru

Paddington the Explorer by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not

Paddington Lloyd Webbear by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Rainbow by Darcey Bussell

Paddington TrailSpecial Delivery by Ben Whishaw

The last one Little Sis just had to get up and kiss, she was slightly obsessed! They were very popular and we all enjoyed looking for them and learning who had designed them. They are on display until the 30th December. More information can be found here.

Christmas crafting with Twinkl

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but we’re big fans of Twinkl, they make lesson plans and activities and brilliant primary teaching resources. I was looking for some fun activities for the children to do and found a fun gingerbread house printable.

The 4 year loves to colour with his special pens. He keeps these in their packet and doesn’t let his sister use them.

IMG_7752Both these pictures are currently stuck on the back doors so we can admire them. Let the Christmas crafting commence!

Baking gingerbread men

Today we baked gingerbread men! Little Sis loves to bake when she gets the chance.
