Since the schools broke up for the holidays, my partner and I have been racking our brains to find new and interesting ways of simultaneously entertaining a teenager, a toddler and a baby.
So far, we have been swimming (twice) and ice skating, had picnics in various locations, been to a farm, been fruit picking, cleaned up an old rowing boat, been to an air show, taken treks up hills and around gardens, been to many parks, and spent numerous days trapped indoors by rain watching family movies, baking cakes and making stuff out of dough.
And what fun the children have had!
|Teenager and baby play computer games|
|First time on slide!|
|Toddler and teenager make muffins|
|Fun at the park|
|A pony ride for the toddler|
|Toddler and baby share a swing|
|Teenager on a seesaw - who knew?!|
|Paddling pool fun|
|Toddler tries out the PS2|
|First time ice skating fo a very excited Mini|
|Teenager supervises toddler on the ice|
|Toddler borrows a helmet at Eastbourne air show|
So, as the new school term approaches, I'm feeling confident that we've done a fairly good job of keeping all children reasonably entertained. And for this week's itinerary? Ceramic café, treasure hunt, Lewes Castle and probably a few trips to the park.
I'm exhausted just typing that...
