BLOSSOM FASHION ART

 Isn’t blossom beautiful?! 

We picked up some blossom on the way home from school to play with and decided it would be gorgeous if we had a dress made from it….so that’s exactly what we did!

We printed off some photos and became our our blossom fashion designers..

   

  

  

 How stunning did they look?  

  

  

  

  

  

  

   

 Our blossom dresses were really effective and beautifully smelling 😊🌺

RAINBOW MINI TODDLER ADVENTURE AT LYDNEY PARK

  As part of our ongoing toddler mini adventure series aimed at making the most of the pre nursery time remaining with Noah before he heads off to school in September, endeavouring to slow down & embracing our time together, today we went on a colours of the rainbow hunt with Noah… 

This also formed part of our local places exploration..

We went to Lydney Park spring gardens, nr Chepstow…..it was an absolutely beautifully stunning place & the perfect place for a colourful adventure with or without the kids… There was so much more to see there but our objective was to find colours…

We finished our rainbow hunt with a colourful picnic….. 

 

GIANT SURPRISE EGG ROLLING…

  We decided that we wanted to make our own giant surprise egg, we used it as a sibling team building exercise & once we’d created our egg it was the kids mission to get it to the top of a huge hill intact so we could roll it back down…..everybody helped. 

  We made our egg by making an egg shaped structure using lengths of willow which I then covered with a plastic tape used to cordone things off (non sticky, available in pound shops).

We then covered the structure with chicken wire (not pictured!)

We finished by using rolls of wrapping paper and ample amounts of sticky tape to cover it before using coloured paper to add our detail. 

We made a separate box for the surprise.

AND WE WERE READY!!

Noahs job was to carry the ‘Surprise’ 

 whilst everyone else set about taking turns to carry the egg and using teamwork to carry it together.. 

  

We walked up under a beautiful blue sky which was slowy disappearing …. 

 and the sun began to set as we got to the top.. 

  

  

 So we opened up the suprise which was full of chocolate eggs and ate them as the sun sunk.. 

  

  

  

 And there was only one way down……rolling our egg!!
