As a mum of as two littlies there isn't really a 'holiday' as such, we didn't have school or nursery, we just go about our own little routine and continue to do so when everyone else is on holiday from school etc. The only difference for us is how much busier things are during the week, especially the parks! We've been having fab weather here in Scotland, so have been going for lots of walks and visiting the various parks in our town. Ollie, almost 3, is loving it as each day he gets to meet new 'friends', he's a confident boy and will often ask other children to play, Normally it's quiet and we're the only ones at the park, unless we plan to meet friends, but now there is always a new friend for O. Great for building his social skills.
We've also managed to spend lots of time in the garden with Ollie's favourite activities, painting with cars (with addition of his choice of materials, sometimes glitter, sometimes soil and stones) and playing with water.
Water games are generally; taking things in and out of the water; pretending they're lost and finding them; cleaning cars/trains; driving through floods on the black tray; watering the garden and just splashing!
As did a trip to the Riverside museum in Glasgow (train mad toddler!).
Considering going to the Commonwealth Games Road Cycling Race so Ollie can see something of that too, as it's our country that's actually hosting this year! I didn't apply for any tickets, as there no way he would sit still to watch anything, but standing a short time to watch cyclists shooting by might be ok. Plus we could have a train journey there too, that always goes down well!
