Earth Day 2016

Wishing you all a wonderful Earth Day. We wanted to share some of our crafts that we did earlier on.

We started our day by making handprint Earths. On one side of the Earth the girls placed their handprints and on the other side they drew a picture about ways to protect the planet.

We briefly touched on the Earth’s layers. You can print this worksheet from Twinkl.

We also made coffee filter Earths. The girls loved how magical this activity was – we will definitely be using coffee filters for future crafts.

These lovely decorations look so beautiful on a window. They will brighten up any home for Earth Day.

We will be spending the end of our day with board games, books and popcorn.

We hope you all had a wonderful day. Please feel free to share what you got up to today over on our Facebook page. Please follow us to keep up to date with our journey.

Happy Halloween!

I didn’t manage to get many snaps today (we’ve been so busy) but we’ve had a fun day!

We didn’t do any baking this year as Emily has needed me a lot more this past week; she doesn’t cope very well with teething.

We still managed to carve pumpkins and make a delicious pumpkin stew.

We got all dressed up and went trick-or-treating and then came home to be the barer of treats. Ava loved rushing to the door to hand out sweets to all the children.

Once sweet Emily was tucked up in bed, I was able to help Ava with her Halloween Toucan Box – I’ll be writing a separate blog soon, reviewing how wonderful these little boxes are!

I love spending my days with this crazy pair. I am so grateful to know such amazing little people; it astounds me everyday that they came from my body!
