I am VERY excited about this post. I was kindly asked to join this blogging group of photographers who are also mummy’s. Our challenge is to spend a special day each week with our children and photograph these special days and capture these precious moments with our little ones. Every month we will all blog everything we got up to with our children and will link to each others blog. They are great if you are looking for inspiration of what to do with your little one.
I have created a Jar and have filled it up with lots of activities. Such as:
- Visit a museum
- Play shopkeeper
- Dress up day
- Treasure Hunt
- Playdough day
- Have a Knights day- visit a castle and learn about knights
and many more. I will get my son Alex to pick one out every Wednesday which will give me a few days to prepare the activity to do at the weekend. In our busy lives I think we can forget how important these moments are to not only ourselves but also out children.
As I only joined last week I only have one day to Blog about.
Making Easter Bonnets
My son Alex is 5 and he wanted to enter the school Easter Bonnet competition. So I had a browse through pinterest with him until he decided what he wanted to make. He loves Angry Birds so of course that’s what he decided to make. We had great fun making it. Even my 18 month old daughter Willow has a go at decorating one herself. Alex did a great job but unfortunately didn’t win the competition which he was disappointed about but we had lot’s of fun making the hat 🙂
I know I’m biased, but how cool is that hat?! Lol. It was so easy to make. I definitely recommend having a go.
Next months ‘A Mothers Dream’ blog will include 4 special days instead of just the one this month.
