We love to do our bit for charity where we can and the Big Toddle is something we like to be involved in specifically because our children are raising money for other children their age.
The theme this year was Fairy tales and nursery rhymes so Little Mr chose a spider outfit - incy wincy of course, and Little Miss went for Snow White.
Before we left to do the toddle we had a story, sent in our pack from Barnardo's. The kids loved hearing about Todd the Gentle Giant, and we were able to have a little chat about why we were doing the toddle, who it was going to benefit and why it was good to do.
After the story I made them some balloon mice - three blind mice, perfect for the theme!

Next they had a little run around and sang songs to warm up.
|Well done little ones!|
So far we have raised £123 for Barnardos & we have promises of more sponsors so we have succeeded our target of £100!
Next year will be the last toddle that Little Mr is eligible for so next year will be big for us, we plan to organise a big event and invite lots of people. I'm going to start planning already.
