We have had a busy and fun-filled half term, and now the countdown to Christmas begins!
A Reward For Ava and thea
I spray painted some glasses and filled one of them with stones a while back, and when the girls help me, or get good feedback from school/preschool, or do anything else that warrants a little reward, I move stones from one to the other. When they fill the second jar up, they get a treat.
All the stones are in the second jar, so the girls have earned a treat!
I prefer this to a reward chart, as they work together to fill the jar. You can find out how to make these pretty jars here.

I hadn’t registered that it was a Halloween Circus so I was a bit worried that Ava would freak out (she’s not a fan of Halloween). But luckily she was fine. There was a Mummy, but I heard her reassuring Thea that it was only a man in a costume. It was a fun show, with acrobats, a lady balancing words, some hula hoopers, and this man balancing on cylinders. There was also a clown. I am scared of clowns (the Killer Clown phenomenon hasn’t helped) and my friend made me have my photo taken with him afterwards. Note the hysteria.
There was also an act called Mr Slinky. Which was a man in a life sized slinky suit, I really got the giggles.
