Holidays - Day 2

Another fun filled day today which started out at home in the morning picking some veggies from our garden. Even though our veggie garden is tiny, I'm thrilled that I finally got around to actually doing, it rather than dreaming about it. It's lots of fun for me and the kids.

The other activity I planned for today was a "Movie Night" at home. Most Tuesday's we get out DVD's because they are half price however, I made a big deal out of the fact that we were all going to sit down together tonight with popcorn and pretend we are at the movies. The kids got right into this and talked about it all day long. Actually the first thing Sienna said to me when she woke up this morning at 6am "is it movie night". (Plant the seed of fun I say!!).

To make it fun I bought the little red and white popcorn containers from Coles and some microwave popcorn to go with it. We ended up getting "Cloudy Meatballs" which was very cute and something I felt I could sit through myself with the kids. We took some fun photos and had a ball.

James got right into it making movie tickets and cutting them out for us to have and he also made some paper money for us to buy the popcorn with. When it was movie time James told me I had to cut off the top of the tickets and give them the stub so they could go take a seat at the movies. They lined up at the entrance of the lounge so we all got into the spirit our our little movie event.
If I had just rented a DVD for them as usual this afternoon, it wouldn't have been half as much fun and seriously, I get such a kick out of making it a fun activity and something for us all to remember.
Well, we can tick off the making cupcakes, squeezing juice, movie night, a play date and Mcdonalds. How many more days left have I got to fill!!!! Luckily I've got a few more fun activities up my sleeve yet.

  1. man you are being one good mum with these holiday activities - I tell mine to go outside and jump on the trampoline...although we DID make jelly today (each kid got to make their own) so they could eat it after tea tonight.

    and we have had trips to granmas and "helping" dad, does that count as holiday activities?!
