The Easter holidays are here (how did that happen?) and I have 3 weeks of school holidays in which entertain my lovely daughter. Honestly you think I’d be used to this by now, but sending them to school makes you lazy and you get used to doing less with them. So this holiday I’m going to find fun, educational, stimulating stuff to do with her – I’ve even taken 3 weeks out of working to spend the time with her – they aren’t little forever and I’m going to make the most of it.
So are my holiday ideas:
Gardening – we’re going to grow lots of veggies in bags and plant up the beautiful flower seeds that Debs at Carrots and Kids sent me. I’m going to help her clear her own area of the garden round the playhouse and help her plant it up. I’m also going to try and get round to painting the sheds depending on the weather – but she’s an excellent painter so she’ll love getting messy.
Bike – Finish teaching her how to ride her bike without stabilisers – she’s nearly there but just needs a little more confidence and practice.
Easter Egg Hunt – the traditional egg hunt at my parents, Mum keeps hoping Miss L is too big, but she still wants one every year. She’ll still want one at 18 – ha ha!
Art – I want to get her to a gallery – she announced that the National Gallery would be ‘BORING!’ but I know my daughter and I think that she would love the Monet’s and the Van Gogh’s. Might try and sneak it in there 🙂
But if we don’t get to do that making pretty easter art (all my inspiration for that is coming from Tip Junkie – great ideas there, painted eggs, glitter paintings, and do some of the art kits she was given for her birthday.
The Beach – fingers crossed that by the end of the holidays it will have warmed up enough for us to get up to Brancaster in North Norfolk and have picnics and build massive sandcastles.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Easter Break!
