Hi, it’s me again! Just popping in to let you all know what activities me and Kory have been doing to pass the time during the isolation period. I hope you’re all well.
Day 4 consisted of playing with play doh, making our own bird feeders and baking cookies.
Kory loves the outdoors and he loves being outdoors. At the moment as you will already know, everyone is confined to their own homes but we are blessed with a nice sized garden and we’ve been lucky enough to have some lovely weather too so at least he’s been able to play outside. Because of this, I wanted to do an outdoor themed activity with Kory and making our own bird feeders seemed perfect.
Here’s what you will need:
- Pipe cleaner
- Honey hoop type cereal
Here’s how to do it:
- Simply thread your cereal onto the pipe cleaner
- Once the pipe cleaner has been filled with cereal, fasten both ends of the pipe cleaner together in a knot to form a circle and to finish
And there you have it! You’re very own bird feeder!
Next up we did some baking! Nothing fancy – just a £1 cookie baking pack. Kory really enjoyed baking his own cookies but I think he enjoyed eating them even more! We do a lot of baking together as it’s an easy way to pass the time even when you’re not stuck in isolation!
Yesterday we made a wishing jar. The idea is that Kory adds wishes that he’d like to come true once everyone including us is free to leave their homes again.
He added wishes like:
- Go to the beach
- Buy a fun toy
- Go back to school
It was a nice activity to do together, it’s also something that will be nice for us to keep but at the same time it was quite sad too, for me at least anyway. It made me realise how much I took for granted just everyday life before all of this happened. Like being able to take Kory to school, being able to just pop to the shops and having the luxury of being able to buy things that we need. I for one will surely feel different about life once things do go back to normal again. I will certainly appreciate the little things in life more for all of this happening has taught me that they are actually the big things. What has happened is truly sad but maybe it’s taught us a lesson we all needed to learn.
If you would like to make your own wishing jar, here is what you will need:
- An empty jar
Here’s how to do it:
- Paint your empty jar whatever colours you’d like
- Leave to dry
- Whilst drying, write down your wishes on a piece of paper
- Cut out your wishes
- Once the jar is dried, place your wishes inside
And that’s it!
- Did some recycling
- Played in the garden
That’s it from me for now. I do hope you’re enjoying reading these blog posts. If you decide to make any of the above, I’d love to know how they turn out! Once again, thanks for reading.
Remember to take care of yourselves,
