Over the weekend we were very busy organising and clearing out. Though Boo was very much involved in this (she is quite the adept shelf-maker and knows her way around our local tip now!), it’s not the most scintillating of weekends for the kids, so I decided to make it a little more interesting, and get us out into the fresh air. I’ve written before about how we don’t tend to bother with the garden unless it’s warm, but with Project Garden, I’m determined to get us out there more, so here we go!
While the Husband took the kids off to the tip, I grabbed the ten minutes to prepare a little activity for them. The kids have plenty of Happyland toys, which is handy as they’re pretty robust and easy to clean, so off they went into hiding in our garden..
The first had to be in her Fairy Garden, of course..
And then the others were dotted about in the mud kitchen, trampoline, rocks, herb garden – you see them!
It was introduced to Boo, on her return home, like this..
She was excited! Little Man hadn’t a clue what was going on, but happily donned his wellies and followed big sis outside anyway!
Once they had found them all, we celebrated the happy reunion with a little bubbles party!
And on coming back inside, Boo wanted to do it again, so we ended up having a further 5 house-hunts that afternoon!
Such a simple activity that I’d really recommend as it got us out enjoying the garden and a little bit of fresh air.
