Although we do lots of activities and craft I don’t feel that I really “play” with J and T on their level this is a perfect opportunity for me to invest some time each day re-learning to play.
Day 1 of the challenge was set by Anna yesterday 1st November and is
Join us this summer and get 4 weeks of fun activities to create and learn straight to your inbox.
Spend a little bit of time thinking about this challenge. What do you hope to gain?Think about your child (or children) What do they really love doing? What are they good at? Their special interests? This will be really helpful as the challenge unfolds.
Here’s what I have worked out I want to achieve at the end of the 30 days.
My Mission Statement is that I want to my children to look back and remember me as the Mum that played, danced, acted crazy, crafted with them and not the mum that said “Wait a second”, “Later” as well as discover a way to split my time between the two and develop play that is possible with both at the same time.
J is 26 months old and he loves Building, Cars, Trains, Paint, Reading, Cuddles, Craft, Trying on Shoes, Tidying!, Diggers, Animals, Tractors, singing, colours and numbers.
T is almost 8 months old and she loves watching her brother, chewing stuff, making noise, feeling different textures in books, being on the move – rolling, crawling, pulling her self up.
As I write this Jamie has set Day 2 of the Challenge To Build a Fort. Well the children are both in bed now – so this is something that we will do tomorrow morning.
