Maths games, park, reading and baking

Today has been a very typical 'stay at home day' for us. We haven't actually stayed home all day but we haven't met anyone else and have followed a natural, relaxed schedule. It's been a lovely day.

Harry came downstairs first this morning and prepared fruit and cereal for us. I love the Christmas napkins he found in the cupboard to use!  

We played some maths-based board games after breakfast - Trilemma, Insy Winsey Spider and more place value target - Harry is very good at recognising numbers into thousands now and wants to make a really big target with numbers up to millions. 

After hanging up some washing we went to a local park and had a great time. We took a ball and played football and piggy in the middle and had a few games of hide-and-seek. The boys used lots of energy!

At home, we baked gingerbread cake and biscuits and listened to a Listen and Play BBC podcast.

I read some Fantastic Mr Fox and Harry read his new reading book - I am Wonder Woman. He is really enjoying the superhero books from the I Can Read series. He read some more at bedtime and we played Roald Dahl Brainbox. We have also played with Lego and building bricks.

  1. Fab. Those Super hero costumes are a big hit with your boys aren't they! Love the look of the I Can Read books - thanks for telling us about them. I've ordered a couple about dinosaurs for Sylvie... fingers crossed. They look really good!
