Friday is pizza day round our house. Half because the kids think its a treat (pizza and a movie every Friday! Winning!) and half because by Friday neither my husband or I can be doing with cooking either. It’s Friday, everyone just wants to relax. So when we were asked by Prezzybox if we’d like to review their DIY Chocolate Pizzas it seemed like the perfect half term activity for us – to be made on a Friday of course.
This last week has not been a cheap one for us. We moved house last week (hello removal costs and umm….oh yeah, buying a house) Then we had to buy wallpaper stripper, paints, so much mobile internet that a tiny tear escaped from my eye as once again we are without broadband and I had to buy enough playdough to keep two kids occupied while I tried to get a quick ten minutes here and there emptying boxes. When both my kids also managed to put holes in their clothes this week I have to admit that it didn’t feel like exactly the best of timing, but then I guess when is it ever? I don’t think I know any parents who would say they feel loaded with cash and couldn’t do with saving a few quid here and there.
Recently I’ve been trying to help my daughter learn how to count. Actually I have a sneaking suspicion that she might be able to count already but either she’s forgotten or her obsession with the number eight (no, I have no idea why either) means that other numbers don’t get a look in. Either way, this simple activity for teaching numbers to preschoolers was super simple to set up and allowed us to look at numbers together in a way that was fun and also helped with hand-eye coordination.
I’ve shared some Valentine’s Day crafts for preschoolers and some for toddlers before but today I thought I’d get a little bit more specific and share some Valentines Day crafts for 3 year olds. Why three? Well because my daughter is three and even as a blogger myself I often find having a look through Pinterest that a lot of the stuff I see if super pretty but not quite suitable for her age, so I asked some of my favourite craft blogger what Valentines Day crafts they’d done with three year olds (not just stuff that theoretically kids can do) and these are the ideas they suggested, hope you love them as much as I do!
Yesterday I shared with you the simple painting on foil activity that I did with my daughter and today I’m sharing the activity we did straight after, painting with cotton wool. What actually happened was that I only had one activity prepared but this is so quick to set up that it’s a great activity to have in your back pocket in case your kids suddenly ask to so something.
