We have had a very chilled weekend, we are still adapting to the isolation. I am not back at work for over another week, the boys will be coming with me, but until then we are cooped up in the house or our back garden. We are very active and outdoors, we love an adventure so we are struggling with the confinement. Especially so as the boys don’t understand what is going on or why. I am trying to keep them busy and enteratained as much as possible but it can be difficult. Something I had been wanted to do with the boys for ages is make forest potions, without a forest within walking distance I decided to see what we could find in our back garden!
We then added our mixture to some old glass sequin jars we had in the craft cupboard.
We also decorated some pine cones (we have loads of these around the house, as every Autumn walk we went on last year Noah collected them). I tied some twine around them so they were ready to hang, and the boys painted the bottoms with poster paint and glitter. They are now hanging in the boys bedroom window.
Finally, as we couldn’t get to a woodland for a walk, we thought about different creatures that live there. We then created pictures of these animals using finger painting.
We have not only been being crafty, we have also made smoothies, turned the front room into a cinema and scoffed lots of snacks whilst watching Disney and Marvel films!
