The Easter Holidays has seen many regular guests returning to Coombe Mill. I love to see the children meeting up with friends year after year, just as if they had seen each other yesterday! A few new faces each year soon learn to join in the fun, age doesn’t matter, everyone just mucks in together united by their enjoyment of the farm.
Let’s be eco crafty
Our regular guests from Camel lodge love to organise a build a boat competition. Armed with sticky tape they then challenge all the children wanting to participate to raid the recycling bins and build a winning model sailing boat. A good hour after the feed run is taking up with each perfecting their design, sticking and taping till all are ready.
Now the real fun begins as down to the river they go, proudly armed with their eco sailing boats. All participants eagerly scale the river bank, wading in for the starting line ready for the grand countdown to launch. You can hear from the screams and shouts on the video just how much excitement is involved!
The Winning Line
Coombe Mill bridge provides the perfect finishing line and everyone delights in watching them sail under the bridge . It’s fair to say there are more wet wellies than dry by the end, and that is not just the children!
Well done the Mums and Dads!

After last week’s gorgeous warm sunshine this week felt like a bit of a letdown with the weather. Or at least it did to me;however the children are far less demanding of the British weather and carry on regardless. With school holidays upon us mine have been only too keen to come out and meet all the guests staying and show them all their favourite corners of the farm! This and an eventful week with new animals being born and needing tending has kept my children and those of our guests enjoying the great out doors.
Check out all the lovely “Little Helpers Hats” This new addition is proving popular this season. I am also posting one to Ali for this post http://www.plus2point4.co.uk/2012/03/13/lackham-lambing-weekend/ as my chosen Country Kids post for March. There were some really inspiring outdoor activities and plenty of children clearly having fun; I spent a happy hour revisiting them all, which made it very hard to choose! In the end it was Ali’s perseverance to get the children out for the day with no car which did it for me.
Please keep them coming, new linky every Saturday, I love to share what we have all been upto outside, whatever the weather!
