Week 5 of the Summer Holidays

Mixed bag of weather this week so we did both indoor and outdoor activities this week.

Last week, we made toppers for cakes so this week we put them to use. We melted chocolate, poured it onto cakes and added pink glitter sprinkles before adding the toppers.

We then pulled out the dressing up boxes and had a Princess Tea Party with the cakes, biscuits, fruit salad and juice.

We made good use of the park on one of the good weather days and had a walk down to the library on another. The Jellyfish completed the Summer Reading Challenge. There was also a clown show on at the library. It was horrendous.

The show was supposed to start at 2pm but the clown decided to set up at 2 and it took him nearly an hour! The kids were bored. I was bored. The 'show' lasted until 4 and was dire. I lost the will around ten minutes in.

On another sunny day, we did painting in the garden. The Jellyfish likes watching Backyard Science so we got the idea from there: mix cornflour with water so it looks like milk, then add food colouring. You can then paint on the ground because it washes away with water (or rain in our case).

We also made good use of the bad weather by staying in and watching episodes of The Secret World of Alex Mack.
