Space theme day.

    Here’s the second run down one of our ‘themed days’ – Space. Based around my eldest sons favourite theme, we had great fun all day. For those not aware or who are visiting my site for the first time – My boys love our theme days, begging me to do them every holiday. It is a fun way to filled a ‘holiday day’ cheaply and means you can relieve childhood boredom of staying at home if needed.

  For our  Space day we started by creating space alien pencil pots created out of a recycled baked bean tin and an old sun reflector which was heading to the bin – I will be  posting ‘how to’ to my project section.IMG_0903

   We followed this with some not so space theme ‘train’ picture watercolour painting (sons choice – another like) – I printed two free train colouring pages of the web which the boys then painted with watercolours. The pictures looking very effective and colourful.

We followed this with a lunch based on our themed – Space rocket sandwiches made by the boys with cheese for the windows and space raider crisps.

 After lunch we created our own spotted space pictures out of stickers.

We then watched a space themed Dvd.

Finishing  our day with pizza planets and ice lolly rockets for dinner. Plus of course reading ‘Space theme books’  and some stargazing before we went to bed.

    So slightly later than planned here’s the First run down one of our ‘themed days’ – Boats. Based around my youngest sons favourite book and a popular book in our house we had great fun all day. My boys love our theme days, begging me to do them every holiday. It is a fun way to filled a ‘holiday day’ cheaply and means you can relieve boredom of staying at home if needed.

For our day we started by creating Paper plate Sea Scenes. Which has already been posted to my project section.

We followed this with a watercolour painting – I printed two free sailing boats colouring pages of the web which the boys then painted with watercolours. The pictures looking very effective and colourful.

We followed this with a lunch based on our themed – boat sandwiches made by the boys with grapes for the sea, plum whale and a banana base .

 After lunch we created our own ‘toy boat’ out of bits and pieces (and floated it later in our night-time bath).

We then vacated into the garden for ‘creative play’ to take a swim in the sea (our pool).

We then did some iceberg evacuation looking and finding sea creatures and items (mostly playMobil seaside items and toy sea creatures).

Finishing  our day with fish, chips and ice cream oysters for dinner and a bath filled with boats. Plus of course reading ‘Toy boat’ before we went to bed.
