Catchy title hey! This morning I masking taped bits of wool on the landing at different heights as part of our spy themed activities - I then told the girls if they knocked them off they would trigger an alarm in a baddy base somewhere else and they were as good as dead! P wasn't great as this as she mostly liked to pull the wool off the wall! E and I really enjoyed it and had several attempts - I soon added elements to the game - such as if you knock a wire and it says on the wall you get a point but if you knock it and it comes off you get 2 points. G found it hard and soon gave up - no perseverance that child!

I bought P some lovely Lego cupcake bits which are fab - even I enjoys playing with them as well as some real kitchen equipment. They seem to come out most night after school - so I guess they are a hit. Even I have been getting into it - fantasy baking is great for the waist line!
In the topic basket this month are more chapter books ... I wonder if I and G will be inspired to read them? I wonder if I could set them a challenge - for each book read there will be something sweet as a reward. This is because G rarely picks up a book to read herself unless it is a school reading book - she is great reader and has a fantastic reading age and comprehension but just would rather be doing other things.

They had such fun! I would do it again but I would also have different coloured paints out to explore colour mixing. Also this will led on to other printing - I can see us having fun with cars, my little ponies etc etc!
