We are seeing our older children prepare themselves for s...

One of the stories we have been reading  is Aliens love underpants....Our children noticed that one little Alien gets left behind in the boy's pants drawer, this helped us discuss keeping safe near our adults, how the Alien might feel and devise ways of getting him back to his space ship!...
