Hugs rule

Hugs rule

This is a great challenge for us because we are a huggy family. So we simply hugged more. It helps us connect and feel better about the hard times. It also gives us energy. XOXO

Jeremy Vine the Egghead

19th August 2016 -We did a ?? on an egg. Jenna x did green ears and a red mouth and blue eyes and nose and a brown bowtie. We fetched some cotton wool and put a little water on it, then we put it in Billy's head. Next we sprinkled seeds on top. I hope hair will grow

Experiment time!

Experiment time!

We tried this with milk and also with apple juice. Both worked! The milk needed more heat than the apple juice to see the writing.

We baked brownies in a mug and added vanilla icing and chocolate syrup. The children all tasted unsweetened cocoa... and made the funniest faces!! We think we'll eat chocolate with sugar from now own!!

Star Wars Yoga!

The Bishton Family

Star Wars Yoga!

We have missed a few days of yoga but we did the Cosmic Kids Star Wars Adventure this morning. I loved re-telling the story and acting it out with our yoga poses. I really liked the bit at the end about keeping our love inside us all day to make the world a peaceful place. Ed enjoyed doing the light sabre bit, and the bit where they killed the Death Star and he liked the bit where they got to sleep for the first time. Annie enjoyed the bit where they got their medals, and acting the medal bit out.

I had a great time doing my Jar of Happiness! At first I didn't want to,but when I was making it I didn't want to stop! I like all the messages I put inside. I love being happy!

Too tricky

The Salmaso Fordham Family

Too tricky

These look soooo stunning but we didn't manage to get them right. So, after a few attempts we moved on to making jars of happiness but we will have another go at the origami stars. Lesson we learnt: keep calm, be patient and give it another go later.

Happy jars!

Happy jars!

Christina, Maitreyi and Vaidehi made a jar each and had lots of fun decorating them. When it came to writing dreams, wishes and affirmations it took a while to start but then the children really got into it!
