Our Summer schedule

School holidays seem long and we are just experiencing our first school summer holiday.  April only started nursery in January so we are used to her being with us.  The school holidays arent quite that different to us yet.  However I like to start as I mean to go on .
Gary, Aprils daddy, is self employed and works very hard and going away for a couple of weeks when you have a business isnt always possible.  So I got creative. I work part time so I am off Thursday – Sunday .
I sometimes feel being off with kids is a whole lot of money being spent trying to entertain them and then with out planning its actually more like wasted money .
I find planning fun and with that came up with the idea of craft things to do and a really good day out every week to look forward to . Then a Sunday in house playing with the mountain of toys she already has.  We have our special summer days out and here is a list of our summer weeks.
Week one . – Circus is in town . yay . Got best seats and had full day with friends at this , candy floss , balloons . When in Rome lol.
Week two – Gymnastics summer camp . This was on for three days and the bonus is that I get some me time too . she has three full fun days.
Week three – Airshow . Full day event and picnic will be taken too
Week four – Thomas tank day . _ trip on a thomas tank train .
Week five – Weekend away for some fun fun fun . beach , parks and some adventure
Week Six – safari park and if sunny can take our BBQ
I have filled our ‘special summer days’ with full days out and I mainly like to do these on a Saturday so that my sundays are lazy days.  I like having a plan and I also like to keep ideas up my sleeve for reserve.
Reserve list for bored days.
zoo
Cinema
park
baking
beach
swimming
soft play .
So I am hoping this list helps you out a little too .
Have a fun fun fun summer x

The sun has got its hat on

We are very blessed to have a lot of sun at the moment.  I love it. April and I are getting out and about a whole lot more.  Parks and walks and mini adventure.

I always feel like we, as parents, spend so much time and money trying to entertain our little munchkins on rainy days.  Toys, days out to soft play, dinners , cinema.  The list is endless . Unlike our bank accounts.   Sunny days are great for just getting out to parks and the beach and having fun without it costing much at all. Maybe just an icecream.  Long may it last . xx

Indoor Swing

With all the wet weather we have had, we were getting bored not getting to the park, so we decided to bring the park to us. Well not really an entire park but the swing.  I saw this on pinterest and thought it was a great idea.

All that was needed was a chin-up/pushup bar, about £5 , and a swing, about £7, both available from many shops including amazon and eBay

Took only seconds to put up and April loved it.  Even better that it is a physical thing to do than sitting watching tv .
