Reward Charts

I received a phone call from Madam's teacher the other day regarding her "talking" in the classroom.  Her teachers suggestion was a reward chart.  I didn't realise how difficult it was to find a "ready" made chart so I decided to make my own.  I even bought some Tower stickers so we could record the good day.

Our first reward was a walk to the park so Madam could play on the swing, it was Fab!!

Here are a few more fun reward ideas;
1. Extra story at bed time
2. A small toy - bouncing ball, toy car (for boys), princess crown or wand (for girls)
3. Renting a movie
4. A special Milkshake or sweet treat
5. Making a cake or cookies
6. A "Late" night stay up


On Saturday the 12th of February we decided to visit the Meerendal farmers market, here are a few pics of Gemma riding a pony, what great fun, didn't expect her to enjoy it as much as she did.

The farmers food market that was introduced last year and proved to be very popular. It takes place on the second Saturday of each month and provides lots of things to buy and enjoy.

It runs from 09:00 till 14:00 and there is a wide selection of foods: fresh farm bread, pesto and olives, homemade pies, preserves, honey, waffles, biltong and droƫwors, rusks, cakes, fudge and garden plants. There are pony rides and a jumping castle to entertain the kids while you shop.

Dates for the Farmers market for the year :
15 January 2011, 12 February 2011, 19 March 2011, 16 April 2011, 14 May 2011, 11 June 2011, 16 July 2011, 13 August 2011, 17 September 2011, 15 October 2011, 12 November 2011, 17 December 2011

Fun in the Sun

Christmas cookie baking

Little G and I made Christmas Cookies again this year but unfortunately we where able to hang them on our tree, we where very worried that the Cats (Simon & Mielie) might eat them.

Recipe to follow

Wrapping paper - potato stamping

In sticking with our creative Christmas we decided to make our own wrapping paper to wrap the sock mice.

Cut the potatoes into the desired stencil shapes, this is def a job for Mommy

Mix some powder paint (as per instructions)

Start stamping, wait for it to dry and wrap your special present
   What simply fun, Little G had a ball

Sock mice - presents for our cats

The Cats def got spoilt in our house this Christmas, I made them each a sock mouse filled with some catnip, Simon loved it so much he couldn't wait to open it so he decided to open it himself.
