It´s been another day of monster mayhem and madness here at Casa Nostra! We just LOVE monsters! Whilst the older children had their faces coated with plaster of Paris to make exceptionally crazy and scary monsters that would make your bones quiver; the younger children had a great time finishing off their crazy egg carton monsters and magical mix-up monsters from yesterday. We also made crazy monster hats and started to make monster masks too. Every single monster creation should be put into a museum for all of the world to see.
Later, some children went to visit Perla and Valentin (our donkeys), stroke the baby ducklings and chicks - this is one of our very favourite things to do here on the farm. Lots of the other children spent a very enjoyable time in our castle library, devouring a mountain of fantastic books. Lara and Gal-la loved all the princess books, Aniol and Marc found the non-fiction science books totally absorbing and fascinating. Maybe we´ll all turn into bookworms rather than monsters by the end of the week, we´ll have to wait and see…
As it was so hot this afternoon, many of the children relaxed and rested for a short while so that they would have enough energy to throw some monster shapes on the trampoline. Jordi can bounce so high, it´s amazing! We´ve also had a fabulous time climbing onto the top of the castle. Once we had clambered to the top,we could see all the way out to sea (and I´m pleased to report there were no monsters swimming in the sea today!). We´ve also been swimming in the big pool, played lots of chase games and whooshed around on the toy cars, tractors and bikes.
After some fun face painting (we were very excited to have Frozen´s very own Olaf painted on our cheeks today!), we very possibly, the best cake snack ever… Super scrummy chocolate and sugar-iced donuts! We absolutely adored them!
