    Pumpkin Painting

    Apart from last year when we wasn’t here for Halloween our tradition has been to carve our pumpkins at Halloween. It was our plan for this year but we decided to try something new. We have been sent Little Brian Paint Sticks to review. They claim that you can paint on any surface with the paint sticks. So I thought we would put our paint sticks to the test. Ethan wasn’t interested in pumpkin painting. This meant the task was left to me and Little E. Little E used the paint sticks to draw lots of mini drawings on her pumpkin. One of those drawings was a cat. It wouldn’t have…

    Colchester Pumpkin Patch Foxes Farm 2018

    We first discovered the Colchester Pumpkin Patch in 2016. It was the first time we visited Foxes Farm and the children really enjoyed it. We visited last year too just before our adventure to Disney World. The bad weather put us off visiting last weekend. We decided to visit this weekend and the weather was amazing. There were some changes to the Pumpkin Patch this year. To enter the corn maze you now have to pay £3.00. I’m guessing this is the price per person. We didn’t worry about going in the maze so didn’t pay this fee. There were food stalls there this year which is what is was…

    Star Of The Week And A Visit From The Class Bear

    On Friday Ethan was awarded Star of the Week for sitting in the circle at circle time. I can see a sitting theme forming for Ethan as he was awarded Star of the Day last week for his sitting. He likes to move around a lot, not to mention his jumping from sitting position! I don’t envy the teachers at all but he must be doing well to be given these awards. As in his last class being awarded Star of the Week means that you also get to bring home the class bear. This was news to us on Friday evening but it was something that both children were…

    Halloween 2016

    Being that the 31st of October fell on a school day for us this year I didn’t have too much planned in regards to celebrating Halloween. We had been to the pumpkin patch in the half term and Ethan had done the pumpkin hunt that I was looking at with his school. So I made sure we had sweets in for the children coming round to Trick or Treat and that was about the extent of my grand plan. I must admit that we didn’t even carve the pumpkins that we picked at the patch because of the terrible cold I have had for the past few weeks. When we…
