Makaton Monday ~ Prince (Charming)

Last week Bruiser learnt a new sign! Obviously he’s always learning new signs all of the time but given that his ‘signabulary’ now consists of over 500 signs, new ones are becoming something of a novelty for us!

All week at Bruiser’s nursery, they were celebrating Bookstart Week and the theme this year was Traditional Fairy Tales. Friday was party day though and the children were invited to dress up a traditional character from a book!

I was wracking my brain wondering what to send Bruiser as. Dressing up isn’t something Bruiser does much and it’s always on his terms so I knew it would have to be something familiar to him without too much dressing up involved. Then it came to me, dressing up in something of Wriggler’s would go down very well. I dug out some clothes that Wriggler had out grown, Bruiser bless him thought he was dressing up as Wriggler. It took a while to convince him otherwise because as far as he was concerned he looked like his brother 🙂

Bruiser went as Prince Charming… and Charming he most definitely was!
