Today I’m joining in with my friend Jane from Mama Pea Pod with her regular Outdoor Play linky. Jane lives in Hungary (how cool is that?!) and the weather is getting warmer there, while it is getting much cooler here. We have, however, had a little bit of sunshine over the last few days which has been glorious.
Frog & Bear got the paint brushes out again quite a bit this week for a spot of water painting in the back yard. Our paintbrushes live permanently on the window sill at our back door, along with some bubbles and some sidewalk chalk. I feel very grateful to have an enclosed backyard and when the kids are under my feet I just herd them outside – calms everyone down (especially me!)
Sometimes, you just can’t tell when something is going to capture your child’s attention. You can spend a long time setting up activities but they play with it for 2 minutes and they’re on to something else. Yesterday we struck a winner when I suggested, in a flippant attempt to get the kids out of my hair, that they go & hide their toy cars in the garden in a twist on ‘hide ‘n’ seek’ and they played for what seemed like hours. You just can’t predict these things.
Can you spot the cement mixer in the picture below?
Where have you been outdoors this week?
