Day 20 we had a whole host of fun… breakfast in the garden, making a car ramp out of an old pallet (I provided the materials, they did the rest!), playing with construction vehicles and natural objects, lunch in the garden and then out to a local outdoor playgroup where the theme for today was ponds.
We made frog life cycles on paper plate “ponds”, then headed into the woods for a story about a tadpole and a snack break, then the main event, pond dipping! Our best catch was probably a dragonfly nymph although we also saw a water boatman, water fleas and various fly larvae, someone else caught a newt! Then home for a shower, dinner in the garden and bed for the two little people.
A was out for the evening so an hour of reading in the garden for me… A pretty great day!
