It involved some painting without clothes on - it seemed the best way to stop paint getting on their clothes and me nagging them to be careful.
They hoovered the carpet and picked up all the outdoor toys that were spread around the garden.
I stapled some spotty fabric to the ceiling (I made an apron out of it last week) added her party bunting and gave the table a wipe.
They played cafes and did colouring for about two hours and Little M pretended she had moved house. All prepared now for the summer holidays. We filled up the pockets with pencils, farm animals and notebooks for the holidays. We made the wall pocket a while ago here Do go over and look at Tales from a happy home's playhouse. It has had an outdoor paint job too and is completely delightful.
Thanks for the inspiration.
