Little Sis spent an hour at nursery this morning. When I went to pick her up she looked like she was having a great time. On her next visit she will be having lunch and soon she will be attending for a full session!
Whilst I took her to nursery the toddler was having fun at home with nanny. In the short time we were gone they had made orange slices to hang on the Christmas tree, decorated some gingerbread people, also for the tree, and finished off the little Christmas tree he began on Sunday.
The tree is made from some large craft sticks which the toddler had already painted green and then we glued the branches in place. This morning I left him a bag of stickers to decorate it as he wished.
He was really proud to show me the finished decoration and I think he did a great job with his stickers. He has already asked what we’re making next!
The little man had an inset day at school today which meant we were free to go to the library. The children were very well behaved (compared to previous times) and the toddler even joined in a little.
The crafts were related to Bonfire Night and they made paper sparklers with lots of sparkly stuff.
Happy faces all round.

It’s been a while since we’ve ticked a tube station off our list but today we visited Stanmore. We weren’t actually on the train but as we drove past it would have been rude not to have stopped. It’s a bit of a strange station, all above ground but you have to go down many steps from the station building to get to the ticket office and trains.
Stanmore tube station is the northern terminus of the Jubilee Line in Travelcard Zone 5 and the northernmost station on the Jubilee Line. Stanmore station was opened on 10 December 1932, as the terminus of the eponymous branch of the Metropolitan Line, then transferred to the Bakerloo Line in 1939 and again to the Jubilee Line in 1979 (according to Wikipedia).
After all that exercise we were glad to get home to finish off our Remembrance day crafts. This involved lots of red paint.
We made tiny finger print poppies.
And also some larger apple print poppies (as we didn’t have potatoes!). I think they look great and are a fun way to learn a little about the importance of Remembrance Day.
