Science with a 2 year old

I found this on pinterest lately. Bicarb plus coloured vinegar plus eye dropper equals fun!

So we decided to give it a go




By the end, it was a big fat mess :)

It was lots of fun, kept Rona occupied for about 30 minutes

Teddy Bear's Picnic

Rona went to her best friend's birthday party. Joan is 3 months younger than Rona, and it was a great opportunity to catch up with friends and celebrate a special girl.

The theme was Teddy Bear's Picnic and Rona got to make a bear mask, she was very pleased about herself.

Child Labour or How to teach children chores

Rona loves helping me.
And while it takes so much longer to do the housework, it is worth it

Now Rona isn't scared of the vacuum, she loves to help

and washing dishes is apparently very fun

my leg

Yes, another update on my leg.
I started putting tea tree oil on my leg to try to get rid of the infection, so thankfully that worked.


Yay the stitches are out!

Fine motor skills the easy way

Who knew that I could make something fun into a fine motor skills practice session?



I love that at this age almost everything can be an educational experience

Please excuse the sporadic posts, I can't type much, my hand isn't broken (thankfully) but it is very swollen and bruised.

Also, my leg is still infected, on my second lot of antibiotics and also on a second type of antibiotics.

But Rona is doing well, she is taking great care of me.
She has discovered a love to cutting things. I have bought her a set of plastic scissors, they have a small spring in them to make them easier to use for preschoolers.

Must remember to disinfect the ladder if I am ever let on a ladder again ;)

Hand, bruised, swollen and infected
