Face painting and a Zoolab experience

I picked up the children from their summer holiday workshop today and they both had brilliant face paint. They were both Ninja Turtles, just in case you can’t tell, although only one of them let me take a photo!


After lunch it was time for one of the special events as part of the Summer Reading Challenge at our local library. I had booked both children in for the Zoolab – Marvellous Beasts talk.

Join William on his heroic, one-millipede crusade to combat climate change and save the world. Even the local Jaffa Cake factory is at stake in this monumental adventure that draws in a whole host of ZooLab animals – you’ll meet everything from millipedes to spiders, snakes and frogs to rats and lizards.

Big Brother was happy to sit and take a closer look at the animals but Little Sis wasn’t so keen. It was a brilliant event for kids and we can’t wait to go to more over the summer.

A trip to the library

It has been a couple of weeks since our last visit to the library but today we finally managed to find time to go. It was lucky we went as they had a very important visitor – Father Christmas came to read a story and gave everyone a present. You can see Little Sis was very excited.


Then there was time for a little colouring before we went home for lunch.

Story time at the library

We have a great local library and headed off for Story Time after we dropped Big Brother at school. Everyone sang happy birthday to her which she enjoyed.

After lots of songs and a couple of stories it was time to craft.


She decorated some card decorations to hang on the library tree.
