Growing Up Too Fast !

Image
Today was Myles's last sports day in his nursery, i cant believe what an amazing young man he has grown up to be in the last few months, yes he does drive me crazy to the point where i want to scream but without it i wouldn't be as grateful for the amazing happy times we have together.



So not only was it his last sports day but he also turned 4 today! 4!! Where has the time gone, i know parents say it all the time but seriously what happened there, i blinked and 4 years had passed. This is another reason why i started "A Childminding Mummy" because i now have hundreds of lovely videos and pictures i can look back on and remember all these beautiful days.



He has been such a lucky boy with some fantastic friends who came to his party last weekend, i know they will all have an amazing time moving on together to their new adventures in "Big School".





We all have had a great day so thank you everyone in Myles's Nursery i know he will miss you all especially L…

8 Transport Activities

Image
Hi everyone i have been planning our next topic for the childminding kids so here is our 8 transport activities we will be using with all the children. There are some fantastic ideas to link to the EYFS or if your a parent and want some new games to play.

1. Cardboard Vehicals.



Now i know this one looks too good to be true, but something smaller and easier to do will be just as good.

2. Cardboard Marble run for cars.


We have a gutter system in the garden already for the children where they put water down and catch it in a bucket at the bottom, but this looks easy enough to make too.

3. A Car Wash


Anyone can do this, grab an old tooth brush and off they go. You could even through in a few dirty dishes along the way haha.

4. Hot Air Balloons

Bit of a sit down task, would be great for everyone after a run around in the garden.

Wedding Planning

Image
I have recently posted a video on Youtube explaining how i am going to plan our wedding but thought it would help me out if i just wrote about it.

Believe me i'm not one for writing nor am i any good at it, but i feel this is something i shouldn't turn away from and should just give it a go.

So we have been wedding planning now for a month, we went to one venue for a visit and its just not for us. Then my nan suggested going abroad and at first we both laughed and thought yes i wish and that it would never happen to us. But why not, why cant it happen to us, why cant we have the wedding of our dreams and be somewhere hot and sunny and not have to worry about this stupid English weather where one day its hot and the next its like a hurricane!




So i started to look online and to be honest at first it looked so easy like it was booking a holiday, you see the price and thats what you get. Boy was i wrong!

I went to the local travel agents and picked up their brochure for weddings a…

Numbers Activity - Matching Game

Image
Like this?? Check out my Youtube Channel here : A Childminding Mummy
My son has been struggling to recognise his numbers so for this month our topic was Numbers. We made a matching number game to help him improve. He found it really fun and wanted to win which also help his attention span and sit down until there was a winner. He is only 3 so we didn't have a lot of rules, only that he must take it in turns to choose a picture card. If he already covered that number the card would go back and it was my turn.




He was very proud when he was able to complete the whole board independently !!

Christmas Activity Craft - Snow Globe

Image
Heres how we made Snow Globes with the children.
Like this?? Check out my Youtube Channel here : A Childminding Mummy

To start with you will need:
plastic cups
fake snow
card
glue gun

Then take a lovely photo of the child and print it out on either paper or card.
Next cut around the photo to fit in the cup and cut out a circle piece of card to fit on the base. If the photo is on paper back it with card so it can stand up.
At the bottom of the photo cut a snip upwards in the middle and bend one side forward and the other back.


Glue the two flaps to the circle card.
Fill the cup with enough snow to shake about.
And to finish glue the base using the glue gun to seal in the snow.

How Im Losing The Baby Weight - Day 1 - What I Ate

Image
Hi Friends, today is my first day of my new diet. Im hoping not to change my type of meals as we get very stuck in our ways, but change the portion size. Im also no longer eating after 8 as i would snack all the time whilst watching the tv at night and it would always bring me down. Bye Bye fizzy drinks !!
