Last Friday night as a family, we worked on a few puzzles together, played the simple card game ‘Snap‘, looked at some Poetry books together and then sang some songs before bed. We were all a bit tired, so didn’t end up having a late night.
Saturday was a slow day; oats with cut up strawberries for breakfast after a sleep in, some play outside, painting, clay work, story reading and listening to music whilst I caught up with a load of washing, tidied the kitchen and made time to read a few pages of a book. In the afternoon, I made a coffee and my children made a hot chocolate (we consider a treat) and had an outdoor picnic for afternoon tea (cut up fruit).
Early Sunday morning, my husband came back home (had been working overseas for a little over a week) but wasn’t feeling well, so he spent most of the day in bed resting/sleeping. My children and I baked some biscuits, they read some books, played Lego and played on their scooters together outside and we did some sewing and more art in the afternoon. We also did some yoga together for a bit of fun. I had to shift our furniture around to make room for all three of us to do this together.
In a couple of days I will have another post on some DIY first sewing cards that I made up for my daughter’s Montessori classroom.
