Advent activity 8 - green beanstalks and playdough

Our activity today was our first festive trip out - a visit to Dance City to see their Christmas performance of Jack and the Beanstalk with some friends from my NCT group. It was a good performance and showed the giant stealing the sun, which Jack had to retrieve with the help of the giant's little sister. The set was minimalist and was designed to encourage imagination. We stopped at John Lewis on the way home and Harry chose two new decorations for the Christmas tree, which we will put up next weekend. It was very nice to have an afternoon out just with Harry - Peter had a lovely day too at swimming and soft play with Stuart.

We also made a batch of green playdough this morning and the boys enjoyed cutting out Christmas trees.
