A few days ago i decided we should go “look at some nature” as my daughter says.
So we loaded everything on the buggy and headed up to the pond nearby. It didn’t quite go as planned (when does anything ever go to plan?) but at least we got a healthy dose of fresh air and then a heavy dose of uh… rain.
So After running home in the rain I decided to use up some of the huge number of plums we had on our tree to make jam. I now have A LOT of jam – I think we have enough plum jam to last until next year!
Anyone who knows me will tell you I LOVE history.
So my 8 week plan sneaks history in for even little tiny ones!

On a recent trip to the Co-op I saw these little dinosaur box sets on sale. A little box with some stickers, a fact book , some game cards and a dinosaur to excavate. Each little excavation set came with a hammer, chisel and brush .
They were great fun! The kids spent ages carefully chipping away to get the little dinosaurs out and it passed an afternoon – my son even read the fact book which was quite an achievement for a boy who tells me he “hates” reading!
