    Hooray!
    Mondays activity plan-

    Breakfast: Pain au chocolate

    Activity 1: drawing pictures with melted chocolate (dark, milk and plain)

    Snack: Breadsticks and strawberries with chocolate dip

    Activity 2: Watching youtube clips about where chocolate comes from

    Lunch: chocolate spread sandwiches, with chocolate orange mousse for pudding

    Activity 3:Walk to the shop to buy more chocolate (learning about road safety, money, and fairtrade chocolate wrappers)

    Snack: Chocolate cake with hot chocolate to drink

    Activity 4: running around the house like crazy animals on a severe chocolate high!

    Tea: Chilli con carne (containing dark chocolate), pancakes with hot chocolate sauce

    I don't think I have ever looked forward to a days childminding before!

    I was dreading opening your post just in case it said it was today and I had missed out on most of the day! Will put it in diary for next Monday - thanks for sharing - but I won't be sharing my chocolate!

    I so despair of ' national anything days' - there are just so many and they are all designed to line someones pocket!

    But...on my own on Monday! So pain o chocolate for breakfast - .... Chocolate fingers at some point because they are so my dessert island luxury !!!

    I may be heard to say now that national chocolate day is ok...

    Though if someone would invent a national : gin and tonic day, new clean sheets day, reading absolutely rubbish day, listening to anyone you want Day, anything goes when you have had 3 glasses of red on a Wednesday day.......
    Then I may well become a supporter of national days in the future!!

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door
