And they’re in!

Actually, I’ve had them for about a month, but had lots of catching up to do. I opted for black & white as well as colour.

My little boy is not so little any moreĀ  – that is according to him!

Racing Jellyfish

Take a deep breath! We’re taking a plunge into the ocean, in the search for some incredible underwater creatures. Pop your jellyfish on a window to display and then race your new underwater friends! Which one do you think will win?

Toucan Box Theme: Racing Jellyfish.

Little Yum-Yum was delighted to start creating again with his backlog of Toucan Box’s.

In this box was material to make a couple of jellyfishes from card, dot stickers, ribbons and a straw.

After much cutting, sticking and threading, the finished products turned out great! Max insisted on posing with them.

Gone Fishing

Whilst playing in the garden, I noticed Little Yum-Yum concentrating on hard something; something I couldn’t figure out. I approached him and asked what it was he was doing. “I’m fishing, mummy!” he said with a broad smile on his face. He had made a fishing rod from a strip of a long dry leaf.

I then asked him if he had caught anything, by which he replied he had caught a fish. The fish being a flower which had dried out, that he had simply attached to the ‘rod’. I so enjoy watching this little one at play.

Painting

During the two week Easter break, Little Yum-Yum and I didn’t really get up to much. The weather was terrible and we we’re both unwell.

After trying to find ready mixed paints for months (why is it so difficult these days?), we got lucky when we found some in a shop nearby.

Along with some nature stickers, Max created the most colourful picture to date! Of course we will find room (somewhere, somehow) on a wall, and add this to his many other pieces of artwork.

Happy Easter

I bought some raffle tickets for the Easter Raffle at Little Yum-Yum’s school. We won an Easter Egg! Woo hoo! However, I must say, it did make me laugh when I unwrapped it; as you can see, the prize came with toothbrushes! Now that’s a hint and a half to brush one’s teeth after eating something sweet. I’ve never experienced this before, but it was certainly amusing.

On another note, Max made an Easter card,

which featured a drawing of him and I, complete with a heart.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend WP Family. Blessings to you all.
