There is quite a big age gap between James and Evelyn (over 5 years!) so we are always trying to find ways to keep play time fun and mix up what we are doing to keep everyone happy and everyone entertained. I am a big believer in children learning through play and discovery and that's why we try and mix up our play times.
James loves a bit of arts and crafts and we try and keep it interesting by changing the tools he uses to paint and draw. We have used potatos and other veg to make paint stamps, we have used ice paint and even used leaves to create pretty autumn pictures. One of James favourite activities is drawing on a huge roll of left over wall paper! He created his very own super hero picture and loved being able to crate a big, bold picture. Now James is at school he has started asking for friends to come play, I think this would make a great activity for him and his friends to do out in the garden on a sunny day. With a massive roll of wall paper there is plenty of room for everyone's imagination to run wild and be creative!
Sometimes at the end of a busy day we totally mix up bath time and both James and Evelyn enjoy a magical glow bath which they love! Their eyes light up when they peek through the bathroom door and see the colourful glow beaming from the bath tub.
Petits filous are mixing up the magic too with their new magic square yogurts! The new yogurts are available in two delicious flavours, strawberry and vanilla and raspberry and vanilla. Both flavours are presented in 4 funky squares inside the tub so your children can decide if they have 1 flavour at a
time or totally mix it up and enjoy both flavours together!
The yogurts are fruity flavour yet not too overpowering and are a thick creamy texture. Both Evelyn and James enjoyed both flavours and James enjoyed trying to each one square at a time too. These will definitely be making an appearance in our fridge and our picnic basket this summer!
