It’s quite a short activity but one they totally enjoyed 🙂
To be honest, I’m pleased it didn’t take long today. I know it sounds awful but I’ve been suffering from a headache that’s been trying to turn into a migraine since I woke up this morning.
I’ve been on strong coffee and tablets and even though it’s still lingering, it’s staying as a headache and I can cope with that!
The children have been wonderful all morning. Usually, they bicker at breakfast, they bicker at teeth brushing time and again at getting dressed time but this morning they all worked together.
When the morning routine was finished, they stayed upstairs in Aiden’s room and built a den that they all plan on sleeping in tonight 🙂
After lunch, they each got their plain white t-shirts ready and opened up the fabric paints.
KayCee got her paints and t-shirt for her birthday. Aiden & Ella used an old t-shirt each and some fabric paints that their sister, Kellyann bought them for christmas and we’ve just got around to using.
Aiden planned his design in pencil while the girls just dived right in!
They weren’t very impressed when I told them it takes a few hours for the paint to dry!
KayCee and Ella went off to watch Button Moon on dvd (Ella got it for her birthday and today was the first time she’d watched it) and KayCee seemed to like it more than Ella!
It brought back some nice memories. Button Moon used to be on when I got home from school. My sister is 10 years younger than me and she used to watch it. It’s funny how your views change over the years. When I was around 13, Button Moon was very annoying and silly. Now I’m 35, it’s full of nostalgia and I enjoyed watching it with the girls. I even remembered the lyrics to the song!
KayCee giggled at me singing,
‘we’re offffff to button moon, we’ll followwwww mr spoon, button mooo-ooon!’.
When that was finished, KayCee watched her new dvd; she got, ‘The very hungry caterpillar and other stories’. She loves reading this book to Ella at bedtime and the dvd didn’t disappoint. Ella got the book and turned the pages along with the story on tv.
They’re now in the kitchen with their friend, Savannah, having a teddy bear’s picnic… being nice and quiet, just for me 🙂
