As Ruby will be spending her summer holidays with me rather than in any form of child, I have decided to write a list of things that we would like to achieve; here are some that Ruby and I came up with:
- Go to a Beach
- Eat lots of Icecream
- Fly a Kite
- Have lots of Water Fun in the Garden
- Visit a Farm Park
- Go to the Park for a Picnic
- Camp in a Tent
- Go Swimming
- Take part in lots of Messy Play, including Painting
We went to the supermarket today to stock up on a few bits; I noticed that there were tubs of chalk for just £1, "what a bargain" I thought and I was right.
Ruby spent time in and out of the paddling pool, and enjoyed making pictures and marks on the path, she has turned into a little graffiti artist and every slab was soon covered in a chalk picture.
Ruby loved chalk paintings and I think it's safe to say that these will be used on a daily basis to draw on slabs whilst the sun is shinning.
Looking back at the list, there is one the thing that is paramount; this summer holiday must and will consist of lots and lots of fun!
What do you have planned for the summer holidays and how are you keeping your children entertained?
