M was particularly upset after waving Daddy off, but a quick blast of cbeebies and she was absorbed in Mr Maker, her love for Daddy obviously runs deep!
|As you can see, she is distraught!|
I don't want this summer survival series to make it look like I am providing a never ending supply of "wholesome" activities, though, so just to be clear, this has been an activity for a lot of today, photo taken from behind because I was using the opportunity to sit down so N came and sat on my knee!
I am still trying to do one craft/baking/messy thing with N every day and here is today's effort.
I provided her with some craft paper that had been torn up into squares and a piece of paper that had some basic geometric shapes on it. She then used some glue to "colour in" the shapes.
I had been hoping the finished article would have four colours separated into their shapes but N doesn't like to colour like that with crayons or pens so I am not sure why I thought it would happen with this either. Here is the finished article.
We probably have a friend coming round in a bit, so that will help pass some more time.
Tomorrow's post will be a bit different, I am going to be driving to the East Midlands with the girls (and no other adults) and so in keeping with our summer survival theme I will be sharing my ideas for surviving lengthy car journeys (of which this family does many) and I won't even be resorting to screens! What do you to survive in the car?
