And yet as I said this is nearly over and when the children go back to School and we get back into our normal routine we'll stop eating in the garden (mainly because of the expected cold weather and rain that the UK is famous for in Autumn and Winter). We will stop doing a special thing a day because homework and housework and after school clubs will move back into focus. I don't want to lose this sense of fun, this laid back feeling, this make the most of everyday attitude however so I'm going to try to make sure that the 100 Days of Play campaign that Chad Valley has been focusing on doesn't end for us.
So whilst Top Ender will continue playing with her Doll and Big Boy will no doubt continue to drive me crazy bouncing all over the living room, I like 45% of parents surveyed will continue to scour the internet for fun ideas and inspiration of what fun things we can do.
Playtime to me isn't just a few minutes a day at School, it isn't just a few minutes of time to be squeezed in around homework and after School chores. Playtime to me is going to be a way of life.
We were sent some toys from Chad Valley.
