Two mummies working from home… with a 3-year-old to entertain! Follow our adventures and get ideas for things to do with your own little ones in this blog!
We found this week particularly tough to get motivated when it comes to activities with the little munchkin. In this blog we showcase the best of our week but it’s not always like that. Sometimes activities don’t work, and sometimes the little munchkin isn’t in the mood. It’s ok to have days where you don’t get up-to-much. Give yourself a break, you’re doing an amazing job!
No. 13 Fruit Juice Ice Lollies
Dust off your ice-lolly moulds and make your own refreshing fruit juice lollies! Try making them with two flavours!
No. 30 Make the Thunder Hollow Racetrack
If you’re still accumulating boxes from all your home deliveries, have a go at making the Thunder Hollow Racetrack! It’s the perfect paint-job for a 3 year-old who likes mixing colours!
No. 50 Duplo Maze Ball
Bored of building Duplo towers?... Then have a go at building a Duplo maze and hold your own mini tournament! How quick can you get your ball from start to finish?!
No. 51 Duplo Blow Football
If you’ve had too many glasses of wine to get up a kick a ball, try Duplo football! Grab a couple of straws and a ball. WARNING: this game takes as much physical effort as actually playing football!
No. 66 Bake Roti
For a quick and easy way to engage the little ones in baking, make some Roti as great side to a salad or evening meal!
Ingredients: 200g self-raising flour | ½ tsp salt | 1 tbsp veg oil | 100ml water
Recipe: Pour flour, salt and oil in a bowl and mix. Make a hole in the centre and pour in the water. Knead into a small ball of dough, cover bowl with clingfilm and leave for 20 mins. Divide the dough into 8 small balls and use flour to roll the dough into flat circles. Fry with oil on a high heat till it starts to bubble then flip it and fry for another minute.
No. 84 Plant Pumpkin Seeds
Think ahead to Halloween and plant your pumpkin seeds now! TIP: Water carefully and regularly and cover with a layer of clingfilm or plastic bag to retain heat and moisture.
