Zooming sort of! #abc123challenge

This weeks has been a bit of a blur. Week 2 of the holidays are done!  I surprise myself by saying it’s been a blur.  Every blooming week is a bit of a blur at the moment.  Being a little bit or a lot tired all the time, constantly on …

Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom!

Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom! Lets just have some fun. One of the Robots favourite books is Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. One of the witches spells is “Iggety, Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom” and I thought this would be fun way to end this alphabet challenge. A witch and magic themed …

Yes I Will Play Trains With You #abc123challenge

Week one of the school holidays done, five more to go. The words “Mummy, will you play trains with me?” Are very much engrained into my head leading me to much dread. They don’t really prepare you for the summer holidays with two little kids. They rip away your play …

Yoghurt Pot Yachts

It’s not often I spring the craft supplies out on the Robot. As much as I love crafting and making things myself I often cringe at his ability to just make a mess rather than create something, even a bit like something. I know that’s not the point of being …

Xtreme Torture #abc123challenge

Life has got the better of me this week and the blog has not for want of trying taken a back seat. I have half written blogs coming out of my ears. The week X that we are in has failed! Oh well. I’m blaming the torturous sleep I’ve been …

Xanthan Gum Safe Slime Take 2

Two years ago I had to come up with a play project revolving around the Letter X. We came up with Xanthan Gum Slime. The Robot was just over one years old and I made it with vinegar, needless to say I think it was a disaster. Roll on to …

What a Week! #ABC123Challenge

On to week W of the abc123Challenge, I can’t believe we’re on the home stretch and next week is that illusive letter X that everyone thinks about when you start at the letter A! I’ve got a good one! This week has been a bit of a blur really. I …

W is for Playing in the Woods #abc123challenge

Playing in the Woods There is nothing better than the great outdoors and one place, many places, we like to go as a family is in the woods.  We’ve been heading into the woods as a family since the Robot was born and now that he walks it makes a …

Very Happy 3rd Birthday #ABC123Challenge

My little boy turned 3 yesterday.  I can’t believe I own a 3-year-old now.  He’s been really testing my boundaries this week probably because he’s been so so excited about his birthday and his party.  It has been fun watching his excitement but if you saw one of my Instagram …

Vehicle Painting

Don’t you just love how  you come to an idea sometimes? I was sat playing in the garden with the Robot and he had dunked his tractor in the paddling pool and was riding it over the blanket where I was sat. The tyres made a really good water print …

Umbrellas #abc123challenge

This week has been another one of those blurs where we’ve done so much but done so little! I’ve not really wanted to do anything either hence why this going out on Sunday instead of Saturday. Everything has been last-minute and we have all needed umbrellas to stay cool in …

Unicorn Sea Foam Sensory Play

It was when needing a U project for the ABC123Challenge last year when I came up with Under Water Sea Foam Sensory Play.  A simple game of look through soap bubbles for super hidden sea creatures, aka bath toys.  Roll on to this version of Sensory Sea foam and we …

Teething and Toilets #abc123challenge

Phew this week has flown past so quickly, I can’t quite believe it’s the weekend already. I’m still revelling in the fun of last weekend! I’m gonna put this down to one thing. Teeth. Poor baby CABS has had her first two bottom teeth break through and she’s been so …

T is for Tuff Spot

The Tuff Spot We’ve had our tuff spot, a builders tray, for a couple of years now and we go through a lot of phases with it.  At the moment we are in a not using it phase so I figured for my letter T this week I would revisit …

Sick #abc123challenge

Sick, sick, sick and oh oh the diarrhoea! Yup I can very much justify the use of sick in my title after the wobble last week of using a negative title in a happy post each week. S is for Sick!! We started on Sunday night with the Robot being …
