This is Pip at only 5 days old! That little black dot by the letters is his/her eye which we watched jumping around! It was amazing. Pip is now too big to get any good pictures in the egg but hatching day is only 9 days away!!!!
As a standby toy, for those moments when they want to get crafty but they don't want to get messy, this is a great one. Trying to fit the little nails in the holes in the shapes keeps them concentrating and happy for ages :)
At first the kids said that they were popcorn, marshmallows and meringues, they put them in pans and cooked them.
Until the big ball of playdough had been used up.
It prompted the others to make playdough mushroom pies
This was chicken pie
One of the neighbours friends brought round their dalmatian. The kids spent the afternoon running up and down the field with Marco.
Inspired by making playdough pies, the kids asked to make pies for supper.
