I love days like today and it’s nice for family too. To spend time together but not necessarily on day trips just to spend time doing not much.
We started with some Montossori inspired sensory sorting play. Ok so basically coloured marble stones and tubs with spoons. We also have a movie on and in our house that only means one thing.
Which also means a rendition of Let it go from my littlest. Meanwhile I managed to lay out a pile of materials for another special bear.
I love being able to transform piles like this into special memory bears.
So what have you got planned for days like bank holidays? Wonder what we will do with the rest of the day? Nothing very much at all.
Sometimes nothing days can be quite busy. Just filled with lots of nothing much that’s productive just fun. No housework, no shopping just fun. Lego and stickers and craft things. Maybe some cake making and movies. Nothing much.
Do I feel guilty? No ! Because sometimes it’s good to have purposefully idle time. Time to just play and have fun and relax. We spend so much time rushing about that doing nothing is something we often forget to do. So treat yourself. Have a nothing day and enjoy it guilt free.
