Catching up with Little E's month...
Little E has been: visiting Hobbledown.
I recently bought an annual pass for Hobbledown children's farm in Surrey about half an hour from home. Little E absolutely loves it because there is so much to do. Themed around the magical world of the Hobblers, there is an giant outdoor sandpit play area along with giant bouncy pillows and a hanging swing. For slightly older children there is a play frame and tree top assault course. When it is wet the indoor soft play is one of the biggest we have ever visited. Calling it a farm is a bit of a stretch. There are quite a few small animals but they feel secondary to the play activities.
Little E loves the sandpit and spends hours playing. A change of clothes is essential because the sand pit also has water shoots! Wet sandy socks are the norm. Bestie also has a pass so Little E and Little B can play together which is fab.
Little E has been: wearing Elsa plaits
We are Frozen obsessed in this house. Little E has been insisting on wearing her hair in an Elsa style braid. Not easy to do on super curly hair but I am slowly mastering the skill! She has requested pigtail plaits like Anna so that is my next challenge.
Little E had been: playing at the park.
The warm weather early in the month meant the park was another favourite spot. We take a picnic and spend the afternoon running about. She seems to eat twice as much than when we are at home due to the novelty. The only stressful part of the trip is applying sun cream. I've never seen someone protest so much!
Little E has been: playing schools
Role play is the new favourite game at home and Little E loves to play schools and do her 'schoolworks'. My Aunt even bought her a school dress to dress up in. It makes me completely freak out to see her in it though and I have to remind myself it's ok, I still have another year before she starts for real!
