marching and bubbles

We had a lovely delivery when I got home from work.  A new book 'Lions Speedy sauce', by Carrie and David Grant.  I was very excited to pick the girls up from nursery so we could listen to the CD and read the book.

My eldest was very keen to listen to the CD so we put it on on the way home.  She loved listening to the story.  I found it really well read and loved listening to the enthusiasm bringing the story to life.  My daughter loved the songs and soon started singing along.  I was rather surprised when she started to sing along to the scales, more so when she asked for it on again.

I filmed her singing but she is very very shy so it is a little quiet but listen carefully and you can hear her, it brought a huge smile to my face

We arrived home and my eldest just wanted to sit and read her new book.  The pictures are very bright and colourful and really captured the imagination of my daughter, who is almost 3.

We then started talking a little about rhythm.  This got my daughters imagination and she started to march, saying 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4 over and over.  It just goes to show how much the book has captured her imagination


My youngest followed her around joining marching too.  The girls then decided to play on the swings.  I had put the bubble machine on for them to chase the bubbles but the dog decided to play bubbles instead.

 The girls and Jasper had a lot of fun this evening in the garden.  I love how much she enjoyed 'Lions speedy sauce' and that it is encouraging her to take an interest in music.  

This day I love Marching and Bubbles
