Sophie is really into throwing things at the moment, often accompanied by a loud “flyyyyyyyyy!” So I wanted to try to set up some activities to embrace this new found love of flinging things around the house but also to channel this into throwing appropriate objects especially as we are currently working on drinking from an open cup!
I love it when real life events feature in Sophie’s play. Last week, we were off on an adventure to the pumpkin farm before we had even got changed out of our pyjamas!
Last week Sophie asked for bat play dough. I asked her if she meant black play dough. She replied “No! Bat play dough mummy” so I decided to make her some black play and get out the Halloween cutters.
Yesterday, we went to the weekend play session at Willow Rangers, which is based on the Umberslade Farm site. I have written a blog post about Willow Rangers before before I wanted to do another one because there were so many new things there and we had so much fun.
I love Photoshop and recently taught myself how to make chalkboard images so I decided to make some prints to decorate my house for Halloween.
Sophie’s favourite part of ‘Room on the Broom’ is when the witch mixes a potion and creates a broomstick with a shower for the frog. She often says ‘shower for frog… funny’. So I really wanted to make some magic potions with her.
