Winter Fun Day

I love the thumbs up before they can thumbs up ๐Ÿ’•. This is my littlest part way through our “Winter Fun Day”.

Essentially “emotions were running highโ€ post Christmas. Read into this what you will; Iโ€™m thinking we all know the drill so I wonโ€™t digress #carnage ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฏ

With the last of the relatives having headed home the boys were flat (but not in a quiet adult way, more in a wanting to bite each other way) and I needed a plan… the absence of any more chocolate log, โ€œWinter Fun Dayโ€ it was. I so remember the feeling of being a kid at the end of Christmas and really felt for my middlest when he said that โ€œhe was so sad that Christmas had passedโ€.

I want to help them to look forward and to give them a sense of joy in the outdoors and failing that activities. So the outdoor coats were packed and a picnic was put together.

It helped us to get over Christmas ending but need not be a post Christmas thing although I do plan to make it an annual late December tradition. A wind down, a special family time that we can all look forward to โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

* They generally bought into the โ€œWinter Fun Dayโ€ thing (once I stopped singing my winter fun day jingle) and we pretty much got away with the tree disappearing….one highlight was definitely a lovely quiet hour sat in the car, playing on insta, while the boys played golf and the littlest napped ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿ™ˆ Then the party was over and it was off for snooker! It wasnโ€™t quite as wholesome and outdoorsy as I was hoping for tbh, but we managed to fit a park into the morning and everyoneโ€™s mood seems to have lifted….

Seen a bit on Insta about bringing the joy in January – Iโ€™m on the prowl for more ideas to pinch ๐Ÿ˜€Especially cheap outdoors ones!
