French themed activity day

Like everyone who is at home with the kids right now due to Coronavirus, I’m trying to find ways to keep them entertained. Its currently the Easter holidays here, so we don’t have the usual school work to complete, and while lazy days with far too much screen time are fine some of the time (ok, a lot of the time – let’s face it, we are all just trying to survive this crazy, weird situation) its nice to have a few activities planned to keep the boredom at bay.

So one day this week we had a French themed day. Here’s what we did, and if you fancy trying a theme day at home yourself, let me know in the comments!

Chessington World of Adventures

We started off the Easter holidays with a few days at Chessington World of Adventures and then moved on to Legoland Windsor.

5 gifts for Baby’s First Christmas

This year we will be spending Christmas as a family of 5, with our newest addition Josie.

We’ve bought a few things to mark the occassion, but most of all we are looking forward to having some chilled out family time over the Christmas break and lots of cosy Josie cuddles.
