Speaks for itself does day 3. A simple but hugely enjoyable activity.
The perfect end to a busy, cold day and 'up there' in the spirit of a simpler Christmas.
This was an interesting one because it took C a moment to get into that she needed to find the water cooler *for real*. She, and sometimes 'we', plays a lot of imaginary games with invisible objects so when I said "you need to find the water cooler", she launched into such an exaggerated search of the immediate vicinity that Sherlock Holmes would have been proud. When I said "there's a present hidden there", she shot off down the hall and found the chocolate lollies that I had hidden inside.
One of the other "hiding place" cards I have is the front room cushion, which is big enough to hide a book behind. There are more of these "treasure hunts" coming up and I'm sure she will need less prompting next time.
Ingredients: Cookie cutters, fingers and a bottle top; acrylic paint; glitter ( I LOVE glitter); brown paper.
And another mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows if you fancy.
I think it looks cute. Just like the painter.
