Hello!

Today I had my daughter and her two cousins to look after for the afternoon. When I aked what they wanted to do, they all sai they wanted to make a volcano. My daughter is 4 and my nieces are 8 and 11. We spent over an hour making a huge batch of play dough and dying it with food colour and then making a dinosaur world in my bath tub with trees, waterfalls and ofcourse a volcano. Finally we made the volcano erupt over and over again with vinegar and bi carb soda.
The kids had so much fun and it reminded me that what kids really want is our time and our attention.

  • My eldest loves the afternoon we have together without his younger siblings… Because he gets more of my focus.

  • Yes it is very true, what they want is “us spending times with them” it doesn’t matter what we do. And that time is well spend as well, as they will create great memories. Hope you have more great times with them. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
