Summer Fun: week 6

So the holidays are almost over, and this week I've had the children (with help) making sure they have everything they need for school, sharpening pencils for their pencil cases etc. This kept them both busy and happy for a while at least.

They have also...
1.Made Pizzas

Simply breakfast muffins cut in half with pizza topping, cheese & mushrooms (for those that like them) & bake in the oven until golden (either the cheese or the edges)

2. Painting Salt Dough Models
As the hols are coming to an end it seemed appropriate to finish off some of the earlier projects such as painting the salt dough models they had made, as well as Kai's robot.
(N.P Zack was literally born frowning, he frowns a lot naturally, in this photo he is doing his concentration frown even if it does look like hes just in a mood, lol)

3. String Painting

Or in this case, scoobie painting :)
I had a load of scoobies from the craze of making bracelets, toys etc out of them which came in handy for dunking into paint & then draping over paper to create a picture. Though messy on the hands the kids loved this.

4. Marble Painting


Put a sheet of paper at the bottom of a shoe box, do a couple of splodges of paint on it & then drop a marble of 2 in. Then all you need to do is rattle the box. The marbles roll around in the paint & leave tracks as they roll.
This kept mine amused for all of 2 minutes - fun the first time they tried & then they got bored.

5. Courses

Last week I forgot to mention that Zack attended a course for children to create an animation. He enjoys it so much that he attends every year. Its well worth looking around to see if theirs any free mini courses for youngsters.

This holiday I have done a lot less than I normally do with my sons, this is due to them being more independent in their own way. Kai loves to draw, and go on the trampoline, neither of which takes any organisation from me. Zack has had playscheme & ice zone to attend, hes also happy to read, go on the trampoline, play with technic lego among other things he gets himself.

I hope we have helped give you a few ideas to do in the holidays to keep your youngsters amused, and if you have done ANYTHING fun with your children please link up below.

  1. Thanks for sharing another fab week of activities. I've got just one to share this week - the leaf necklaces that my boys reluctantly helped me to make for their girl friends! :-)
    I liked the lego animation, my boys did one of those last year but they accidently kept showing their hands in the shots. Good fun though.
    It was great to see the sun back this week, yay!
