We went looking round the charity shops whilst daddy got a haircut. Little Sis found this which she immediately wanted to wear on her head.
I’m not really sure what it is but we bought it for the grand total of 75p. As soon as her brother saw it he put it on his head too. It’s clearly some kind of alien headwear.
Baker Ross kindly sent us a box of craft supplies to work our way through. These have been perfect for taking out and occupying the 3 year old when he ‘s needed a quick craft fix. Today he decided to decorate some flower pots as he’s learning about growing plants at nursery. They came with handy paper inserts which can be coloured in.
This kept both children occupied for a while!
Nursery seemed to give a lot of homework for a 3 year old. Over half term there was his About Me book to write in, a book to read at home, and a picture of a turnip to colour. The theme for Spring term is Growing so we’ll be doing lots of talking (and hopefully some growing of our own) to accompany what he’s learning at nursery.
He was sent home with the outline of a turnip (I think to accompany the book The Enormous Turnip) which he was asked to colour in. We chose glitter pens which were really messy and literally took a week to dry. We got a bit worried it was never going to dry out so covered it with contact paper to seal it all in!
Then he had a go at cutting it out and writing his name on the back. I can’t wait to see it up on the nursery wall (if it survives!).
