If you missed it yesterday, I have decided I could not be parted from the idea of Festive Friday so Welcome One and All to Something for the Weekend! (Apologies for the delay if you were waiting, my internet has crashed so I have whizzed across town to borrow my Mum’s! Such dedication!)
I hope this will become a resource for anyone who spends time with children at the weekend and wants to keep them busy, having fun! There will be a Linky at the bottom of the page every week for anyone who has a post to share. If you don’t blog but want to share an idea do get in touch or leave a comment in the comments section.
Here’s my offering for this week!
We have taken many approaches to New Year’s resolutions over the past 14 or so years but I wanted to do something which was adaptable and pressure free. Long lists of ‘I resolve to’s were soon crumpled and forgotten and were more about the idea than the meaning so this year we have a Resolution Tree.
I cut the trunk out of an old paper bag which looked obligingly bark like and then cut a lot of leaf shapes which are in a box by the tree ready to go. The tree is for ‘Things We’d Like To Do’ or ‘Something I’d Like To Achieve’ and can include big ambitions like ‘I’d like to pass my Grade One flute exam’, places we’d like to go, things we’d like to do or things we are trying to save up for. As we achieve our ambitions the leaves can come off and when we think of new ones, we’ll pop them on! I think in the Autumn, there may be a colour change too!
My personal favourite is this one. I can hope!
I’ll tell you the story of how it comes to be leaning on the wall in my dining room rather than in its frame when I get a minute!
So, what are your suggestions for us on this wet, grey Friday? What can we do this weekend? (Old posts very welcome!)
