612. Vehicle/Construction Week.

I mentioned here that I had planned a "theme" for each week of the summer holidays, to keep us busy and happy. Now I'm back to work I wanted to make the most of the time I have off with the boys, by making as many memories as I can. Last week was Vehicle/Construction Week. I looked at our Summer Bucket List and browsed Pinterest for a list of ideas to go with our theme, and each day decided which we were going to do.

We went for a walk past a local construction sight, to see the diggers and the houses being built. Then we came home and played with the tools, of course. We painted with cars (post to come later this week) & coloured in some pictures of construction vehicles. We did some construction sensory play in the sandpit too (another post to come!)

We had a car wash - with a bucket of soapy water, a sponge and a small bottle (& a little monster who kept trying to eat the sponges and tip the water over!)

We made a traffic light collage, with tissue paper. We cut out the red, yellow and green tissue paper together (Daniel LOVES cutting at the moment), I drew three circles on some paper, we talked about the different colours of a traffic light, and he did the rest himself. I drew one for Joshua too, but gave him some colouring pencils.

We (I, I would like to take all the credit because it took me an hour!) built Daniel's little Garage and the boys spent all morning riding scooters & bikes round the house, filling them with petrol and fixing them. Well, Joshua only rode the Scuttlebug, backwards, but he had fun too!

This week, dinosaurs! I'll be sharing pictures in IG (@MomaBBabyboy) throughout the week!



Lots of Love
