Playtime at Paper + Cake

Yesterday Eve and I went for our second (her third) play at a new place called Paper + Cake.
It’s a gorgeous place with a relaxed Scandinavian style and lovely classes for little ones.

Eve’s first class was with Papa for the daddy and me evening but unfortunately no other daddies or their “mes” attended, we are holding out hope that with word of mouth and some advertising some others will start going so they aren’t playing alone.

The other two classes we’ve been to are mummy and me, the first week Eve painted and this week we decorated biscuits. Being little and having a short attention span means Eve stops part way through and heads off to play with the toys and run around in circles, fortunately that’s perfectly okay at Paper + Cake and so is making a mess.

Its lovely to have a place to take her that I can relax while she socialises and gets some of the play and human contact that she misses out on because she doesn’t go to childcare.

Sunshine on a cloudy day

I made sure we got outside each day this week, a little vitamin D in our days to combat winter melancholy.

Little Miss really knows her way with the soccer ball, she even knows how to fake an injury.

She also likes to play with the dirt.

By play I mean eat obviously.

Hope everyone has the loveliest of long weekends.

A few of her favourite things

Eve probably has too many toys. I try to veer away from plastic and make toys for her. Eve however has other ideas. Her favourite playthings (I don’t let her play with the first two) are electrical cords, shoes, empty soft drink bottles, my phone case and remote controls.

Proof positive that I way over thought the hand made toy issue.
