The bread and butter of my blog centres around play. Yet curiously enough, I don’t spend much time playing WITH my children. I set up. I supervise. If it’s really interesting play, I take a zillion photos. I clean.
This week I’ve tried to consciously spend more time playing with my kids, especially one-on-one (this isn’t always possible with four kids at home). I don’t spend hours playing with them, but aim for at least 15 minutes. It’s been so enjoyable! I try and resist the urge of taking photos, but some moments are just too good to miss, so I take a quick snap shot with my phone camera. Here’s my favourite Instagram of the week:
- Sunny Sweet Life: Rainbow Week Fun.A series of fantastic rainbow themed activities.
- At home with Ali: An accidental art prompt. A gorgeous simple swirly doodle painting for any age.
- A day in the life of the Brown family: Noah’s ark Toddler Activities. Check out the gorgeous yarn rainbow!
