Did you know that it was Roald Dahl Day today? I have loved his books since I was a child & have passed that love on to my children. We've read a few of his books together & of course Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory & Fantastic Mr Fox are always on high-rotation at our place. To celebrate, we started the morning with a viewing of Willy Wonka. After a morning snack(& while Heath had a nap) the girls spent some time colouring in some colouring in sheets of various characters in Roald Dahl's books. After lunch we headed outside with empty glass jars ready to collect some 'dreams' just like the BFG. The girls created 'dreams' for each other & the jars now sit on their shelves as they sleep. We had so much fun & it really picked up Piper's spirits - she has been off school all week thanks to a nasty cough that has hung around for way too long & she has been so sad because she is missing her school friends.
