What do you do on a very hot day, when you can’t go outside, and you’re boooooooooooored. You play ‘Antarctica!’ that’s what you do! Freeze some water in big containers to make icebergs. A fluffy white towel for a snowy base. Or just add some ice blocks to a container of water, stones and your […]
The girls were given these wonderful little books for Christmas… The Midnight Adventures and Kelly, Dot and Esmerelda and Creepy Castle, both by John S Goodall.
