Half term is coming up soon.
I love the holidays.
So I have been thinking about what to get up to.
I could just leave the kids to it - they are very good at creating their own entertainment, but we also enjoy having a focus. I had a look at the website of the Maidstone Museum earlier. It is a very good place to take children... and free! Next week they are organising some workshops around the 1940's wartime childhood. So there it is. Our theme for next week.
I've also been looking at books and dvds that fit in with this and am considering buying 'Carrie's War' and/or 'Goodnight Mr Tom'. Perhaps we'll try out some wartime recipes, too. I've just been reading a little of an interesting blog by a lady who is living on wartime rations in a bid to lose weight. She has some recipes on there to try.
