Rainy day back up activities from Wilkos.
It's almost the summer holidays! Does it fill you with dread or delight?
Personally I love them. I miss my daughters so much when they are in school and preschool. I must admit to feeling jealous of the teachers getting to be around them more than me.
I still need to prep to make it a success though.
Each week (starting on a Saturday) has an overall theme. This year we are going for;
* The Gruffalo
* The farm
* Under the sea
And one week to be decided as we might be going away if Hubby can book it off work.
Week one is Gruffalo week. So far I have stashed the two Gruffalo books, 2x moneybox painting kits, printable masks, mazes, activity sheets etc. I've pinned several Gruffalo theme games and activities on Pinterest as well as some recipes that fit the theme. I've bookmarked the film adaptions to watch on YouTube.
Each evening once the girls are in bed, Hubby and I set up for the next day. We try and have one active activity (trip out/game to play), two crafty type activities , on theme film to watch and on theme book to read.
Hopefully we can avoid the phrase "Mummy I'm bored" in this household for the duration.
How are you prepping for the holidays?
