With the run up to Christmas, our Nannies are busy exploring their new surroundings and making them self familiar with the town. Finding out all about what to do in the area, along with essential knowledge of emergency contacts, hopefully not to be needed, but being prepared all the same.
"The locals and seasonnaires have been very welcoming and are happy to
help where necessary. The tourist information office has also been
visited regularly where we have taken many leaflets to give us an
insight to happenings in and around Samoens."
The Christmas spirit is definable in the town, with the lights, that
look beautiful in the evening and the increasing presence of families,
the town is starting to come alive. Not to mention the snowfall too, it
will definitely be a picture perfect White Christmas for all of us out
in resort. In the evenings the bars and cafÃ©s are starting to get busier
and teamed with music it is evident that the atmosphere is something to
"In my spare time I am busy planning activities to do with the
children and collecting junk from cardboard boxes to yoghurt pots and
anything that we can get creative with. Making play dough is on my
imminent agenda too as this can be fun for all ages. Salt dough too will
be used a lot as then when it dries the children can decorate and take
home as a reminder/souvenir of their time here. The activity I am most
looking forward to is making giant marbles. By adding food colouring and
water in to balloons and placing them outside over night, the next day
with the children you can take them into the garden and use them as
marbles as they will have frozen...great fun!"
From all at Merinannies we wish you a lovely Festive break and a very
Happy New Year.
