Crafty Holidays

I have decided that this years summer break, will consist of the cheapest entertainment possible. The local councils have provided us with a booklet of all the FREE summer activities going on, from kyaking to karate, and from face paints to football. So that should keep them busy some days.(check your local councils see what they have to offer).

The rest of the time will be trips out in the car , to the seaside, Nannas and Aunties.

We will be making paper mache heads with a balloon and old newspaper, flags with paper and chop sticks, and with a roll of cheap lining paper  a long day of painting and colouring, if the weather is nice it will be sox off and feet painting , its on the field after all  .

I love having the kids off school and i hope that we can keep the entertainment light and fun .

Please however, dont quote this blog when i tell you that they are driving me insane and i am tearing my hair out.

  3. We're having a cheap-o summer, too. Today's itinerary: Sand table and baby pool in the backyard, skateboarding for the big one.

    I love your tips. Though I may be crafty, I often forget to pull out the supplies for the kiddies.
