Hi I thought it might be a good idea if we all shared what we have done this week to give each other some ideas and inspiration for what to do during the rest of the holidays especially if the weather stays bad. Ok I had 4 mindees (11months, 9,10 and 11 years) and ds (22 months).
Monday-Papier Mache Heads
Wednesday-Maize Maze
Thursday-Craft and Baking day (biscuits, pompoms,flower people, finishing papier mache heads)
So what have you all been up to?

as the weather is rubbish we decided to make summer in the playroom, we got all the fabric scraps, tissue paper etc and made butterfly's, sunflowers etc and stuck them up all over playroom

That sounds like a good idea but we are not lucky enough to have a playroom and I dont think dh would appreciate things stuck all over the house! Surely me and you are not the only ones at work this week!

built dens inside and had tea parties in them.
done some sewing, 1 made a small drawstring bag, 1 made a mobile phone case, 2 others made purses.
made a post box and some stamps so that our 'office' people can go to the post office to post letters.
made pizzas to take home for tea.
made gingerbread men/shapes.
made a huge card for one of mindees who leaves next week

We have had quite a fun week.

I'm not working this week or next, but I can share my plans for the week after!
I'll have dd (11) and mindee 7. We are going to make 'armpit fudge' and other assorted disgusting things in the kitchen one day.
Arts & craft day. Been collecting all the kitchen roll tubes, boxes, etc.
Hopefully arrange a meet with Fifilou in Greenwich park.
Park and picnic (if poss, if not carpet picnic)
Painting day - roll out the lining paper and let our imaginations run wild.
