Angry Birds exercise ball



A few weeks ago we made a wooden Angry Birds game, designed by Sunnyboy after seeing an advert on television, and since then he's also been playing Angry Birds on our neighbour's mobile phone. Last week I made him an Angry Birds exercise ball.

A day out in London

Last week we had a day out in London with Sunnyboy's Nana and Grandad. The first place we visited was the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. After we'd finished looking around the museum we took the tube to Trafalgar Square.



We saw Big Ben in the distance,



and Nelson's Column up close.



Sunnyboy sat on the steps of the National Gallery,



and watched some street performers.



Then after admiring Nelson's Column some more,



we walked across the Thames,





and got on the tube again to go to the Princess Diana Memorial Playground in Kensington Gardens. Sunnyboy loved the pirate ship.













Back at home the next day we made a map of the route we took on the London Underground, starting at Bethnal Green and ending at Kensington Gardens.



A couple of days later we bought a secondhand copy of 'Getting to know London' by Rosemary Stones,



and enjoyed reading about some of the places we'd been to,







and more places we'd like to visit.



If you have a post about an autumn day out or any post with an autumn theme, we'd love you to link up at our All Year Round Blog Carnival: Autumn, which is open for new links until December.

Autumn jigsaw puzzle tree and sensory tub (and more autumn crafts)



Summer is at an end, the leaves are starting to change colour and we've been preparing for the autumn days to come.

Inspired by i {heart} crafty things we used an old, incomplete 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle to make an autumn tree picture. We chose autumn coloured puzzle pieces for the leaves and used an old brown envelope for the trunk.



With the puzzle box and leftover puzzle pieces we made an autumn sensory tub.





We made a new autumn window display (with clear plastic coverfilm) using leaves, sunflower petals and sunflower seeds,



and a leaves poster (with a page from a sticker book).



We've also started an autumn fairy garden.





If you have a post about an autumn craft or activity, or any post with an autumn theme, we'd love you to link up at our All Year Round Blog Carnival: Autumn, which is open for new links until December.
