The weather has been horrible here so we decided to start our camping season indoors.
Smores were prepped with chocolate covered biscuits and leftover peeps.
30 seconds later the peeps were giant! This caused lots of excitement.
We pretended to roast our marshmallows and ate our smores.
The fire was made from blocks and a flashlight. These blocks would give even more light:
The teepee was set up with sleeping bags inside.
The flowers hunkered down for the night, after a story around the campfire.
How do you make your indoor camping experiences fun?
Rose is gaining an interest in letters and working with the letters of her name seems to be the most logical place to focus.
Drawing letters on card with markers, gave the flowers a starting point and I showed them how to find colours and keep a pile ready to stick. The rest was up to them.
I demonstrated how to add glue to a small section and focus on that area before the glue dried. We used glue sticks for ease of clean up but white school glue may have stuck even better. Rose enjoyed working on large areas.
While Daisy focused on a smaller area and worked with order.
“Look what I have done!”.
Losing patience and deciding to randomly glue and stick for the background. Playing with the mosaic squares was a highlight.
When the girls were happy with the final product, we sealed the full piece of card with podge. Name letters signs which now adore the bedroom doors.
I couldn’t resist making my own, one for Freddy and the bathroom. It was very relaxing!
The mosaic squares we used are coloured on both sides and made from heavy card. This made them quite easy to sort, lift and stick. Have fun creating!
I have been slack with blogs posts but with very good reason…
Frederick Rowan (aka Freddy) joined us on April 2nd.
He is a joy to us all and much loved.
The flowers love him to pieces.
Thanks to Carolyn of CueLife Photography for the wonderful photos of our beautiful boy. A photo shoot with our newborn and his two big sisters was made stress free by this talented photographer!
