Hello again

I have a parent coming over for a visit on the weekend, she has a 7 yr old son.

This will be the first 7 yr old boy I will have cared for so just wondering what activities he would like and things he would like to do?

Thanks all :)

My son loves to draw in fact he will sit for hours drawing all sorts so maybe get some paper and pens etc maybe even gluing as they don't seem to do much at school past a certain age :( Lego or similar?

I ave a six year old boy before and after school.

He loves:

colouring i've just printed off some sheets for the World Cup
growing things we have planted potatoes, carrots, hanging toms and spring onions
Jig Saw puzzles
cutting and sticking
dressing up

dens in the garden or under the dining table
train track
farmyard animals
duplo and lego
dolls house
polly pocket type toys

just about everything really thoguh a couple have outgrown dressing up for now.

i have a 7 yr old boy, and 2 8 yr old boys!

lego (and currently the duplo!)
games like snakes and ladders, kerplunk, connect 4 etc
drawing/craft stuff

last night they were all dressing up and role playing along with the LOs
and they all seem quite happy to play with whatever the LO have out!

i do send the boys in the garden quite alot !!!
