It's still Friday here, although only just. I've been flat out today with Little P related things, which also coincidentally is the subject of my Favourite Things Friday post this week.
One of the cool things about being a Bella is that you get to experience all sorts of kid related activities again. The even better thing is that when you work with kids you get to pick the brains of everyone you work with for all sorts of cheap but fun ideas for play when your own brain goes blank.
I decided a week ago that Little P had outgrown his manky collection of bath toys and needed new ones. Coincidentally two of the therapists I work with had just been shopping for toys for one of their water play groups so I took every great idea they had and went and bought all this for under 12 bucks.
Now I have to pry Little P out of the bath.
The biggest hits ? The spray bottle (cost a whole dollar ) and the noodle box Mr. P drilled holes in (which cost about 40 cents )
I have been promising Little P I would make him some playdough for about two weeks and we did that together this morning. (I am the Playdough Queen ) He insisted on red. Then he spent two hours playing with it. I just chucked half the contents of my kitchen utensil drawer on the table for implements and he was totally happy, proving yet again that kids don't need expensive toys to use their imaginations. We all need to take a lesson from that. Sometimes we grown ups complicate things unnecessarily.
Enjoy your weekend and whatever you decide to do-have fun. Keep it simple.
