As we’ve been here, there and everywhere the last few days due to it being half term, we decided to stay in today and actually do something productive.
So this morning saw me, the 4 year old and the 8 year make like Mary Poppins and get tidying their bedroom – toys away into the toy boxes, books actually put away into the book cases (while deciding we actually need a new house just to house all the books.)
What we could have done with was Mary Poppins magic clicky finger trick that makes all the toys jump into the toy box by themselves, and clothes into the drawers etc. Maybe if I practice hard enough……
Then after a round of Mario Kart on the Wii, we had a go at baking.
4 year old measuring, 8 year old tipping into the bowl and stirring, both of them lining bun tins with cases.
Me spooning mixture in.
What did we make?
For those without a scratch and sniff monitor, you’re looking at a tin full of banana and chocolate muffins. Mmmmm.
We also made some little oaty biscuits, but as you can see there’s not much of them left. (Nothing to do with me. Honest. Ahem.)
Apparently my mum wants us to save her one for when she comes on Monday.
Erm, yes, good luck with that one. If I can hold off the vultures long enough you might be lucky enough to get one….
