ds1 (5) breaks up from school on Thursday so will have Friday off while ds2 is in nursery. I thought it would be nice for the two of us to do something special together, but with the weather forecast being spectacularly dismal, I'm a bit stumped for ideas.
It needs to be:
a) pretty cheap - we're a bit strapped for cash at the moment, unfortunately So, entertainment on a budget!
b) not the cinema. He hates the dark and the noise and he gets too scared of the plots... we've just had too many unsuccessful trips to make it any sort of treat for him unfortunately
d) available in Worcester or near environs.
e) out of the house - more for my benefit than him, I've just been going stir-crazy recently and need a change of scenery. So although doing some art activity or cooking or something equally difficult to do while younger brother is around would be great for him, I'd like this to be a break for me too!
Any ideas? I don't seem to be having many lightbulb moments of late!
Whatever you decide to do, i hope you have a fantastic time.
I relish the time that I have alone with DS1 (age 4) without DD2 (age 1) around. I love them both dearly, of course, but it is lovely to just take him out and do something special with him - it reminds me what a fantastic little boy he his and how grown up he is getting.
BTW - I get loads of time alone with DD2 when DS1 is at school, so I am not being mean.
Whatever you decide to do, I hope you have a fab time
We went bowling and had a FAB time (cos it was an INSET day rather than half term holiday, we got the play as much as you like for £5.50 each - so we played about 5 games!) Are now both shattered so collapsed in front of the telly - don't think we're going to be making it to the library!
Thanks for all the ideas... going to store up some of the others for next time we get a day on our own
