A self portrait

Whilst Little Sis was at nursery this afternoon I went to a coffee morning with the other mums. They happen every term and it gives the parents the opportunity to look through their learning journal. I hadn’t had the chance to see it before but it was full of photos and observations of what Little Sis gets up to every afternoon.

I loved the self-portrait she had drawn on the front.

A trip around the running track

Little Sis has a lot of energy, especially in the morning before nursery. Today she said she wanted to go to the local running track before our weekly library trip. She scooted round it three times, stopping each time to try out some of this equipment.


Then we went to the library for story time where she made a sparkly snake. We just about managed to squeeze in lunch before she went off to nursery.

Finger print flowers for May Day

My Pinterest stream is full of pretty Spring flowers so I thought it was time we crafted some of our own. Little Sis chose her favourite colours of paint and I set her up with some white paper and an apron. I drew two lines on the paper then she carefully poured out some paint and used her fingers to make the flowers.

She went along each pencil line with her finger print flowers, up one side and down the other.


We left the paint to dry then she went over the pencil line with a thick green crayon.

She added some leaves to finish off her finger print hyacinths.

What do you think? This is a simple craft activity but looks great for our May Day celebrations.
