Monday On a Mission

In the words of James "drawn by the undertow my life is out of control" - actually that's a bit dramatic but probably like most Mum's with preschoolers things do tend to get rather messy in many areas of life.

Great iPad activities for 5 year Olds and Flu Days.

It's only the third day back at school after two blissful weeks of school holidays and already we are all pooped and counting the days until the term ends :-(

I miss the lazy mornings, the cuddles throughout the day, the random pieces of art we created and going out in the brisk winter sun to explore and run and climb.

Even though we were all hit by a particularly nasty bug we still found plenty of cheap and easy-going ways to have fun inside on flu days. When it got particularly bad we'd all snuggle up under a blanket and play together on the iPad.

So my 5 year old, 4 year old and I have picked out our top iPad activities to share with you. Most of these apps are for you to use together with maybe one or two that might keep them entertained by themselves for a wee bit while you whip up your favourite flu-busting food for them!
