At the beginning of this month schools closed for holiday, so too did my little nursery school. But as the children simply stopped coming, assuming it was closed, I had to call them to come back for a little Christmas party a few days later. They all came, some bringing their older siblings! We made some armbands from toilet rolls and colourful tissue/silk paper and played a round of musical chairs. And everybody got as much sweets and lollipops as they could carry in their little hands, each child also got a packet of crayons and a notebook to carry home.
Next year my little three year old will start school in town, perhaps I’ll start bringing my youngest, although I think he’ll be a bit of a menace… And I might just move the school (again) as we have built a storeroom that is looking too nice just to be keeping stuff in…!
