We're going (FLY) Camping!

The kids are now on Easter break from school until a week on Tuesday - hooray! :)




We're staying at home and will be seeing family and friends for lunch etc over the weekend. But the next few days we're 'going to FLY camp'. Flylady Camp! :)

We've done this a few times before and it's a great way to keep us amused during school holidays. The first couple of days it's nice to sleep in and just veg out. But soon the kids are climbing the walls, with me, I should add, right behind them ;)

Want to give it a go? Print out your Camp Journal - click here to download it for free - from the Flylady website. Discuss what you're going to do with your little campers and make a rough plan. Not too many activities per day - we are on holiday remember! :)

Here's an example of what one of our days looks like:

MORNING:
  • Make pancakes for breakfast
  • Room inspection (beds made? no toys lying on the floor? dirty laundry in the basket?)


  • Treasure Hunt (for example, find 15 old drawings to throw away, 2 pairs of socks that are too small, 3 toys you don't play with, 2 books you don't read, 5 pens that don't have lids)
  • Watch TV, play Nintendo or computer for 15 mins (while Mum works on her blogpost...)
  • Exercise time - 6minute NEWO strength train or NEWO intervals (skipping or running)
  • Free time to do as you like! (Which invariably turns into the kids playing in their own rooms with the toys they 'rediscovered' during the declutter session.)
LUNCH
  • Ryebread with liver paté, cucumber slices, salami sticks, plain yoghurt/müsli. Milk to drink.

AFTERNOON
  • Cinema with friends ‘How to Train a Dragon’ in 3D



EVENING
  • Dinner when Dad comes home. Oksekød i fad/beef in a bowl (DH's recipe is here) and salad.
  • Family game of Rummikub or Scrabble...which, of course, contains the Danish letters æ, ø and å


  • Curl up in bed with a good book, a hot water bottle, a torch and a mug of Ovaltine
  • Lights out! ;)
Okay, I need to go rescue the Mess Tent before it starts living up to it's name. Hope you have a marvelous Monday! :)

Hi JoAnna!

Certainly keeps us busy! Did you know that adults can do the FLY Camp too? Lots of ideas on the www.flylady.net website :)
