Both my children love to craft (phew!) and Little Sis loves to show me what she has made at her nursery sessions. Today was no exception as she brought home a lovely star she had made.
She had a great time at nursery, ate all her breakfast and had seconds at lunchtime!
As soon as she ran through the door she had her favourite Peppa Pig puzzle out and for the first time, pink Playdoh!
Little Sis had her second nursery session today. She really enjoyed herself, making us a Christmas card and playing in the playhouse.
I love the foot print snowman she made!
She was really tired today but there wasn’t much time to relax as there was a Christmas Fair at her brothers’ school which we all went to. When we did get home all she wanted to do was snuggle on the chair and watch Peppa Pig.
We marked the tart of Advent by lighting an Advent calendar or two.
What a busy day for Little Sis. She started off by opening her birthday cards in bed. Then it was off to nursery for her first proper session (for 5 hours!). I then picked her up and we had a delicious hot chocolate in our favourite coffee shop.
We had to wait for daddy to get home before she opened any presents but, after dinner and a birthday cake, she was let loose on a big pile of pink! She quickly ripped through everything and was pretty pleased with her new Minnie and Peppa Pig toys.
We made a card to be shown on CBeebies too but unfortunately it wasn’t shown so here it is:
Little Sis had her final settling in session at nursery this morning. She went for 2 hours and stayed for lunch (but refused to eat anything). Her daily report said she enjoyed watching Peppa Pig and listening to stories. When we returned home she enjoyed some time playing the new ‘Sing and Play’ app, Jingle Bells on my iPad.
Sing and Play Jingle Bells features popular children’s Christmas carols and combines an entertaining and rewarding introduction to music with 10 engaging educational activities. It’s been a big hit with both my children already.
Kids can complete puzzles such as ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ and ‘Silent Night’ and watch them come to life through playful animation, decorate and colour a selection of Christmas pictures with a range of tools, practice to sing and play ‘Jingle Bells’ on the keyboard, experiment with sounds and record their own music through the freeplay option and even complete their very own animated sticker sound board with reward stickers achieved during game-play.
Great for children aged 5 and under it is guaranteed to entertain for hours as they learn to sing, discover and play with a whole host of fun musical activities this holiday season.
- Jigsaw puzzles – Based on 4 different seasonal songs – ‘Jingle Bells, ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’. Once completed, children will watch in wonder as the pictures come to life, allowing them to play with everything they can see.
- Playable keyboard – Let’s make music! Children can learn and practice the Jingle Bells song, as well as have fun with the freeplay activity on the keyboard, experimenting with different funny silly sounds!
- Colouring activity – Get creative with different brushes and tools! Use them to colour and decorate a Christmas scene, each based on a different Christmas classic.
- Animated sticker soundboard – Children can earn stickers throughout game-play as rewards, which then unlock in this sticker activity.
