I didn’t want to get up the other morning.
I knew I wasn’t going to want to get up when I dragged myself to bed at around 1am. So Night-owl Me did Morning Me a favour and left this set up for my kids…
A huge, communal, doodle picture to colour and add to.
I taped to bits of paper together and used a sharpie to draw random squiggles and scribbles. Then I dumped a variety of markers on the table and added a post it note that said ‘colour’.
It’s such a simple idea and something all four kids can do together without killing each other.
This, combined with a huge bucket of Lego at the other end of the table and a few post it note suggestions of what else they could do and a request to help Noah get some breakfast bought me a good hour’s extra dozing before I had to drag myself out of bed, and lasted until we packed it up for lunch.
Man I love school holiday sleep ins!
How do you buy yourself a few extra minutes in bed on the holidays?
