A fun new activity that works those fine-motor skills like a boss... peeling hard boiled eggs ;)
His current fave snack - 'Ants on a Log'.
(Peanut butter and a line of sultanas on a celery stick, if you somehow missed this childhood rite of passage).
Oh, we thought we were super clever to create 'bugs on a log' too -
hummus and pepitas lined up on celery :)
Mmmm, just noticing a food theme in the portraits this week! What can I say, it feels like these kids do little else but eat!!
Miles had half a hard boiled egg and I was amused to see him spend quite a few minutes just taking the yolk out of the white and putting it back in, over and over. I thought to quickly grab my camera as I was so charmed by his cute activity, but when I returned he had decided to eat/destroy the yolk and was busy filling the empty egg white with sultanas. Why not, huh?
His default 'chill out mode' in the evenings, as we kick back with a cup of tea, a bit of chocolate and a little TV show watching together after the kids are finally tucked into bed.
Ahhhhh, peace. 'Switch off hour' is how we survive these little years ;)
(Bonus points if you can tell what show we are watching!?)
Project 52: A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2014.
More highlights from the week that was...
|It's kinda like he is in chocolate bar commercial, showing of the product so perfectly, lol!!|
|Sensory Bin fun. Rice and beans are good for play too, not just eating ;) He poured and scraped and played and dug.|
|His favourite thing was having me bury these glass marble 'treasures' which he would then dig for!|
|'Look, Mama, I made 'Eli'!!'|
|Exploring with a vintage set of Cuisenaire rods before school.|
|At the library for National Simultaneous Story time. The same book is read in libraries and schools all around Australia at the same time. Anything to support and encourage literacy, we are on it!! :) They read 'Too many elephants in this house' by Ursula Dubrowsky. A charming story and a fun morning's activity for Eli, along with his buddies Harper and Zoe (and Miles!)|
|Eli amazed us all with his egg peeling skills, he was the most proficient of all of us! Will have him on duty from now on ;)|
