I am really enjoying the girls at the moment as we move into the Year 3 life and they grow a little further away from being ‘my babies’. One of the new things in their life is music, pop music and learning the words to go with the songs, singing along in the car, watching X Factor on a Saturday night and generally discovering a whole new world.
This new found form of expression has lent to many a rendition of Let It Go! in the garden with lots of acting too, much to the delight of our neighbours. We’ll often be driving along and a song will come on the radio as the girls start to guess who it’s by
1 twin: ‘Taylor Perry!’
Another twin: ‘NO!! Katy Perry.’
Me: ‘Actually girls it’s Taylor Swift.’
They have taken up Performing Arts too which means they get to sing in a group and learn more about using their voices. In fact there is a lot of practising of singing and dancing in the house right now, we have a Tapathon coming up in November, a ballet exam in December and Presentation Night for the singing in December too. I’ve noted they also incorporate all this new found love into role play via their LEGO Friends set.
A while back we were sent the LEGO Friends limousine and singer sets. The girls really enjoyed making them together and when they are up in their bedroom I hear them making stories up with their LEGO friends girls and spending hours up there, playing quite happily together.
At the weekend we visited Legoland in Windsor again, it was a glorious day and the rest of the UK turned up too, it was packed. The girls spent ages in Castaway Camp which is the amazing adventure playground, they had a go at Driving School (currently their favourite ride) We went on a Laser raid ride and Mia’s riding school in Heartlake City before heading off to a very special LEGO Friends party in the Legoland hotel.
There was lots of singing and dancing with prizes to be won (fabulous LEGO Friends Popstar sets.) There were glitter tattoos, nail varnish and colourful hair pieces to be fitted in your hair. BUT the best bit was the karaoke booth where the girls went in and performed Let It Go (of course). We had a DVD handed over to us and they love watching themselves, you should hear the giggles!
My favourite booth of the day was the photo booth where the three of us went in and had a photo taken with silly wigs and sunglasses on. A lovely memory of a fantastic day, thank you LEGO Friends Popstars.
Disclosure: We were invited to the Lego Friends party and given tickets to Legoland so we could tell you all about the Lego Friends Popstar sets.
