I cannot believe we are in week 4 of the summer holidays! (only 8 to go!)
  • Monday: Mini hot dogs (buy the pilsbury dough, wrap hot dogs, bake, could double as lunch)
We started this week with a public holiday, so our little family headed to the zoo! It was kind of like 3 field trips in one. We had our picnic, we saw wild animals and explored the new marine life exhibit. It was great fun! We made the Hot dogs on Monday night, and they were a real hit, but sadly this Mama didn’t take pictures. The boys were very reluctant to touch the dough, they were much happier about eating the final product!
  • Tuesday: Tent ( Fold  a triangle in half, open, cut half way up the middle line, and fold flaps back) and full moon picture (would be nice with glow in the dark paint). 
 On Tuesday we were invited to a friend’s house for lunch and a play. How do I know we have wonderful friends? This Mom knew that it was camping week in my house and set up a tent in her back yard (once again I did not get pictures!) Later that afternoon we had a huge thunderstorm, so I set up a little tent in our living room with a “campfire”. The boys had their dinner in the tent and “grilled” their kebabs. It was so adorable.
I completely forgot to buy cream of Tartar for the playdough this week, so I made a big batch of grey salt dough, and the boys made rocks. We baked them and they loved playing with them. I think they will make a nice addition to our Dinosaur sensory box…

On Wednesday morning I surprised the boys with little campfires for breakfast, complete with a mini marshmallow to grill. We also made the bird feeders on Wednesday. The boys really liked stringing the cheerios onto the string, and using the cookie cutters to cut the toast. My sister bought me a box with 100 different cookie cutters (I know, she’s awesome! ) and the boys have been fascinated with it. They were thrilled to be able to use them!

  • Thursday: Smores

We love S’mores in our house, if you don’t know what they are, you need to find out! Honey flavoured crackers, melted chocolate, marshmallow, simply delicious! We made some for dessert on Thursday! 

  •  Friday: Starry night tape resist picture 
My boys were out all day Friday, so I decided to do just a little bit of Science at breakfast time. I made blue and yellow triangular ice cubes, and we watched them melt in glasses of water, the boys chose how many of each colour needed to go in each glass and made predictions about the outcome. The little guy was facinated by the colour mixing!

I hope you all have a wonderful week of playing and spending time together as a family!  If you want to share pictures from your activities, please add them to the Flickr Album!
