Chester (my 3 year old) is a very social child and he would much rather be at Nursery School with his friends than at home doing boring house chores with me!
So you can imaging the horrified look on his face this morning when I had to tell him he wouldn't be going to Nursery School today because it is Easter holidays!! He does not understand the concept of time yet so I should imagine I will get this look every morning (well every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at least!)
It was only after that announcement that I suddenly thought, how am I going to keep him entertained for 2 weeks!! I mean does a trip to the dentist count as an activity?!! Luckily earlier in the year I managed to get a Travelodge £10 room deal so we will be going to Peppa Pig World but that will only use up two days!!
So far we have made cakes, but I can not do that every day (although I am sure that is what Chester would love to do haha!)
We will go to the park if the weather is nice and hopefully we will do some Easter themed arts and crafts but that will just be enough for week one!! I still need to do all the housework and entertain Millie (which in fairness Chester loves to play with Millie so he wont get bored of that). I don't mind him sitting in front of the TV while I am doing housework but I do not want him to be glued to it!
Then he has lots of 'board' games that we can play but how long will it be before he gets bored playing them?!
So come on then who has got some ideas for me?!! They need to be free or very cheap and they need to be suitable for a very active 3 year old and a baby!! Oh and of course they need to bearable enough to keep me sain haha!
