A week of outdoor fun.

This week we started it off with a visit to Bear Woods because we were hosting 11 children from our partner school on our usual day for going up there. It was a lovely morning & on days like that I can't believe I actually get paid to do this job!

The mud kitchen is proving a big hit with the children, they are enjoying making a variety of concoctions in there from pies, to drinks to ice-cream etc. 

We were fortunate enough to get a bread crate dolly from Cosy Direct & the children have been having fun riding about in it - it weaves all over the place & bumps off the tyres like a bumper car! They have also enjoyed moving the bottle babies around the playground in it.

After cooking in the mud kitchen some children have transferred this over into the sand pit & made cup cakes using old plant pots.

Friday is our outdoor day when we try to cook something different on the fire each week, this week the children have voted for toast!

  3. I remember making mud cakes as a child. My friend had an old caravan at her house which was our play house. We made mud pies and sold them for money made of leaves. Great to see the old games are just as effective today! #countrykids
