The Felt Butty!

This week we've been putting some more work into Jack's play-food lunch box!

The felt sandwich is finished! Jack found this a bit tricky, I think we aimed a little high with this idea because it took a long time and Jack lost interest quite quickly. But he gave the sewing a good try and really enjoyed stuffing the shapes with cotton wool! I think

George was most impressed with it though because he's been playing with it for ages, taking it apart, pretending to eat it, and putting it back together again. I think I might make some more of these just for him to play with!

We've made a start on the lunch box, which is a soap power box that we covered in aper and glue so we can paint it next week. It's just the right size for the sandwich and other things we want to pop in there.

The paper and glue was something of a theme this week with a chicken drumstick & apple made of foil & wrapped in papier mache, and carton of fruit juice getting washed out taped up and covered too. They are now drying out so that they can be painted! Jack's really looking forward to that!

NEXT! I think Jack needs to focus on some of the reading and writing tasks next, as well and painting our fake-food. We still have our paint/glue/food mixes to make! Gooey gooey messy fun!!!!!!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
