The Easter holidays have finally begun and they’ve gotten off to a great start. We’ve had gorgeous weather all day – sunny but not too hot – and we’ve had some lovely family time too, making the most of husband being at home for a few days.
This morning me and Pip made some scones, before we all walked through the park into town. Well, husband and I walked and Pip scooted. We popped into Rules of Play for a couple of new games (Elder Signs & Pandemic, to be exact) before going for lunch in one of Cardiff’s newest eateries, Pieminister. I’ll be reviewing the games and the restaurant in due course!
This afternoon, we played some games then had a lovely afternoon tea of the scones we made this morning with clotted cream and strawberry jam, the rice crispie cakes we made yesterday afternoon and lots of little sandwiches.
Unfortunately the forecast isn’t looking brilliant for the next week or so. Luckily I think the Cardiff Story Museum are putting on some nice activities and there’s usually something fun going on at the National Museum. If we get another good weather day, we might go to the castle – hopefully the owls will be out as Pip loves seeing them.
I definitely want to have a few days of learning. After going to Frenchtastic classes for the last couple of months, sadly we won’t be going on with them after the holidays so I’m determined not to let Pip forget everything she’s learned. She’s done really well with it and it would be a shame to waste that. I’m thinking of perhaps having a ‘French Day’ where we can speak as much French as possible and perhaps learn a bit more about the country. I’d like to do the same with Welsh, although my Welsh needs a bit of work too! At least the BBC has a few good resources for teaching the language to small children.
We’ll definitely do some crafty activities, probably something Easter or Spring themed. It would be nice to get the paints out at least once or twice. There’ll almost certainly be some more baking too!
What are your plans for the holidays? Or if yours are already over, what did you get up to?
