Day #80 Party! Party! Party!
by Sara le Roux, Owner and Inspirer at The Creation Station Penistone and District
I love playgroups!
They are an absolute lifesaver for mums and dads who are looking to meet other families, enjoy some time out of the house and let their little ones burn off some energy.
Over the last few years we have been to many different playgroups, all slightly different in terms of days, times, activities, age ranges and all of them have been a lot of fun!
Our absolute favourite has to be the one that started last summer in the village where I grew up – Greenmoor. It’s such a small village that you can’t help but be drawn into the community and get involved in just about everything that goes on – in our childhood it was lovely things like pantomimes, potato picking and staying out all day on our BMX’s.
The Greenmoor playgroup on Thursdays is just awesome. Attended mainly by the younger age ranges (which is perfect for Izzy who has just started to toddle around) it has such a welcoming atmosphere and the organisers work tirelessly each week to deliver a stress free time for mum’s, dad’s and grandparent’s with even a buffet of snacks thrown in – for just £2!
This week it was the Christmas party!
Last year’s party was so much fun with party games, food and a visit from Father Christmas himself! Unfortunately Izzy was still asleep half the time last December, so this year it was her turn to enjoy the festivities – and manage a Christmassy make too!
You’ll never guess what we got to do……
Just needs her gold, frankincense or myrrh!
Apart from Mummy handing her the sticky-backed decorations this was definitely an Izzy make – Mummy wasn’t allowed to help!!
Every day she’s getting a little bit more independent….time certainly does fly!
Day #80 DONE! 20 to go!
