Homemade baby water pouring station!

My 9 month old is just starting to enjoying playing with water and so today we used some quadroplay to make a little water pouring toy!

And of course we had a play on the new swing to finish off!

End of the month and planning for next month!

£1.90 meal for 8!

So money was a little tight this week and this meal was a lifesaver for filling up the kids bellies!

Some pinto beans soaked then cooked for around 60 minutes , mixed with garlic, chopped tomatoes and chilli powder. Rice , homemade tortilla wraps and cheese!

Chill peanut stir fry 

For a last minute “I forgot to defrost the meat” meal this was delicious!


Straight to wok noodles

Mange tout



Sweet chilli sauce

A table spoon of peanut butter

Just cook it all up in a wok and its done!

Dinosaur sensory play tray

Today was going pretty slowly and so my 1pm I had had enough of the moaning and decided to move myself to entertain the 4 year old!
We came up with this dinosaur play tray ( she loves dinosaurs at the moment). It’s just some rice mixed with bits and bobs we scavenged from the garden . The dinosaurs are from our learning resources super sorting set (love that!)

Picking blackcurrants

Our blackcurrants bush has finally produced some berries!

So yesterday afternoon we got to spend a fun 10 minutes picking them all. We enjoyed an apple and blackcurrant crumble with custard last night. With the added smug feeling of having actually grown something!!

Making concertina notebooks

June 24, 2016 / Blog, Totschool / 0 Comments

We have been reading Isabels Nosiy Tummy by David Mckee and as a way to try and encourage writing and mark making we made a little concertina book. We really enjoyed this – it was easy on the budget (we had everything!) and it was a no fuss was or practicing writing her name. I will be doing more of these in the next few months!IMG_8993IMG_8990
