Wow!! We have had some cold nights and days!! I’m counting down the last month of Winter. I find it really hard to warm up and am looking forward to warmer days. We are in to the 2nd half of the year and a busy one at that.
Many of you will be busy preparing for tax time, a perfect opportunity to clean out old filing and get a head start for spring cleaning. I have started early this year. My toy rooms and study have had a re vamp, furniture re arranged, toys rotated around. The idea of changing everything around came from the personality of one of my twins. He is extremely active and loves to be challenged. If he isn’t challenged he can get bored easily and become destructive. So…. Old toys out, new toys in.
The twins have loved having all their big brothers old toys to play with. Rotating toys comes with great benefits. Excitement, old becomes new again Their attention tends to stay on the toys rather than kitchen cupboards etc Expanded creative play More room for imagination Less toys can mean deeper engagement During the month we held our Family Movie Night, Paddington. It was a great night with 24 attending. The kids seemed to really enjoy themselves.
Planning is underway for some exciting events for this half of the year including one of our biggest events for the year, Our Trivia Night. If you are interested in assisting in the planning of this wonderful event please let me know. On the 6th of August we have our Dads Snooker Night Out! This is a fantastic opportunity for the dads to get together and have a relaxing evening & hopefully meet some new multi dads. Please visit the event page for more information.
