Winnie the Witch – Halloween Read and Play

Winnie the Witch – Halloween Read ...

We have teamed up with over 30 bloggers to share activities and crafts based on our favourite Halloween picture books. My immediate choice – Winnie the Witch by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul. Winnie the Witch has a black house. Everything inside is black, including her cat Wilbur. When Wilbur closes his eyes, he disappears into the background of Winnie’s home and she steps on him. When trying to solve the issue, Winnie changes Wilbur’s colour first to green and then into five colours. Our Halloween Read and Play activity is to create a multi-coloured...
World Animal Day

World Animal Day

The 4th of October is World Animal Day so we have teamed up with other kid bloggers from around the world to share the joy and happiness that animals bring to our children. Between 26th September and 4th October 8 bloggers have written a specially dedicated post to show how children and animals connect in play and love. Today it is our turn. I wanted to share with you the many farm animal based play activities and crafts that have been posted on Adventures of Adam. Sheep, cows, goats, sheepdogs, pigs… you name it, Adam loves farm animals. However, there is one small...
September’s Adventures

September’s Adventures

Wow – what a busy September. It doesn’t feel like my feet have touched the ground. We successfully completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge to raise money for the Pregnancy Sickness Support charity. With gift aid included we raised over £900. Thank you to everyone who promoted the challenge on Facebook and Twitter and for the amazing donations. There is still time left to donate – just click here. This month we also joined forces with other bloggers to help ‘I am Super Capes‘. The project sends super hero capes to children dealing with a...
DIY Outdoor Letter Line

DIY Outdoor Letter Line

Our garden is becoming quite a learning environment. What with our garden fence counting string, number wall, water wall and  mud kitchen we are utilising the garden fence panels well. We realised we didn’t have anything literacy based so it was time for a DIY Outdoor Letter Line. I bought two pool noodles from PoundLand. They obviously had to be yellow and green as they are the colours of Daddy’s favourite football team. Using a sharp knife I cut the pool noodles into sections. I wrote the capital letters of the alphabet on the alternate coloured pool noodles...
Easy To Make Water Bombs

Easy To Make Water Bombs

We were very excited to get our hands on a copy of 101 Kids Activities That Are The Bestest Funnest Ever! by Holly Homer and Rachel Miller. We are huge fans of their Kids Activities Blog and knew the book would be amazing. The book promises “time-tested, exciting activities to keep your children laughing and learning for the whole day, every day” and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Over the summer the first activity we tried was how to make a water bomb. With hot days and three children to entertain it seemed the perfect activity. It was cheap too. Using...
I am Super Capes

I am Super Capes

As soon as I heard about the work of I am Super Capes I knew we had to get involved. Claudia, founder of I am Super Capes states “every child deserves to be a Superhero, no matter who they are, where they live, whatever they are going through.  That is why I Am Super capes was born.  We are wanting to send capes to these children.  To help light up their imaginations, to give them a moment of respite from what is around them.  To give them the POWER to be children!” Here at Adventures of Adam we wanted to help Claudia on her mission so created our own Super...
Edible Artwork

Edible Artwork

It’s been a long time since I’ve made edible artwork. The last time was with a class of Reception children. You can imagine the smell of 30 pieces of bread toasting! I had planned on doing the activity with Adam hence we used soya milk due to his milk intolerance. As we were at Nana’s house he was more interested in running around her garden. Instead my nephew, Stevie, joined me. Setting up the activity is very quick. Stevie added the food colouring to the soya milk and used a paint brush to stir the two ingredients. Unfortunately I was running low on...

Vita Coco Kids Drink Review

Vita Coco Kids Drink Review

As well as being a fussy eater, Adam is also a fussy drinker. At the moment he will only drink watered down soya milk (he has a cows milk intolerance). I am always on the look out for new things to try so when Vita Coco Kids asked if we would like to sample their kids drinks I jumped at the chance. The winning factor was that the Vita Coco promised their drinks have 20% less sugar than other popular drinks on the market. Vita Coco wowed us immediately with the parcel that arrived. No doubt the box will be featuring in a toddler play activity soon! The drinks come in two...
