A Lovely Monday!

Baby 'A' and I had a lovely morning together, we popped out to our local library to get some new books!
He really loves the 'That's not my....' series and always goes straight to where the texture is, even if he's never seen the book before!
We went home with four new books to look at and I'm sure they will be coming out a lot this week!

The librarian also gave baby 'A' a bookstart bear club pack, so each time we go to the library he gets a stamp in is passport, and every six visits he will receive a certificate. He really does love looking at books so I think we will make good use of this!

Then little 'C' arrived after lunch and we headed off for an afternoon of fun with http://wormseye-view.blogspot.com/.
She had a lovely St Patrick's Day treasure basket to explore, baby 'A' spent lots of time looking at all the different things.
Little 'C' joined in exploring the sensory box and found this lovely hair band and rainbow!
Next up was some lovely colourful hand prints....
....which magically turned into.....
LEPRECHAUNS!!!!

I do try not to do too many 'adult focused' activities, especially with very young ones. It's so easy to get caught up in having something to send home for parents. The focus really should be on the process not the product, but sometimes these things are just too cute not to do!! I've got another product focused idea to do this week but it is mother's day so I think I'll get away with it!!

The weather then started to warm up a bit so we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon in the garden
Having a look at new surroundings
Learning how to get around a new environment safely
Playing with Pippa's fantastic outdoor music wall!!
And meeting Pippa's lovely chickens Matilda and Gertrude.....oh mind your fingers!!

Such a lovely start to the week and great to get the kids in the garden! I can't wait for summer to arrive!
