Our school holidays won’t be just full of printable worksheets! I really hope Sam will be outside a lot of the day, using his Tetun and spending time with the kids of the local area. But even when outside and playing, we sometimes need some motivation and creativity, as the swing gets a bit boring after awhile. So here’s our list of fifteen things that Sam and I found online that we want to try and do these holidays.

1. Ferocious fish

When Sam saw these images on Pinterest his creativity started to flow! “When can Imake the mean fish Mum?”

I love the creativity of this guy… perhaps with a camera our kids could make their own book like this.
