Extended weekend activities

As I had an extended weekend off (so to speak) I tried to throw in a few activities to do with the kids. 

 Whilst sorting through the left over Christmas chocolate I found a 'make your own chocolate Christmas tree' set. I thought this would be a great treat to do for the kids, little did I know until it came to decorating it how much fun it would be for all of us to be honest.

 I melted the chocolate and set it in the fridge and constructed the tree in secret then called the boy through to help decorate the tree. 

 This in itself was hilarious, with help from JR we iced the tree and sprinkled decoration pieces over the tree. Well I say we decorated the tree what I meant was I tried decorating the tree amidst boys arms swooping in and retrieving sprinkle bits whilst they were falling all over the counter, it was quite funny though to be honest.



On Sunday we went to our local shopping centre. Whilst there we took our regular trip to the Disney store. It's a cruel thing to do really as the kids always want everything they see yet they normally never get anything. 

 On this visit, whilst we looked round, a Disney crew member asked the boys if they wanted to join in with the fun activities which were going in store. The boys enjoyed sticking stickers on their pieces of paper and making Olaf from the film Frozen. 



 On Monday, whilst JR was at school, we took the two little ones to Zig Zags, our local soft play area. It was fairly quiet as 'big' kids were still at school. Both kids were able to play freely without being knocked over by bigger kids, it was a fun way to finish my days off off lol.

  1. Love the idea of the chocolate Christmas tree - simple, but rgreat fun #whatsthestory

  2. Amazed you still had chocolate left, that's very restrained of you - we guzzled ours! What a great idea though making a tree, sounds like you had great fun with it. How brilliant to make Olaf at the Disney store too, he's such a brilliant character. Thank you for sharing with #whatsthestory

  3. That chocolate tree is so tempting! It must have been so much fun to decorate! I'm a little scared of the soft play areas because of the bigger kids, must try to go at a quieter time. #MagicMoments

  5. The chocolate trees sound a really brilliant idea and the best bit is you can eat it all up once you're finished :) z loves soft plays so much he always darts off to some place really high up. Then I end up having to follow him up there.
