This week has felt like Summer is just around the corner which makes being out and about enjoying some good old fresh air so much more pleasant. We took the chance to enjoy the last ice skating of the winter season at the Eden project at the weekend. It was so lovely and mild that the children happily spent all afternoon on their favourite outdoor play places and once again I was left with just 10 minutes in the biomes before our skating time was up. Much as I am determined to explore the biomes properly one day I am also loathed to bring them inside when they are having so much fun. We have annual tickets so there is always another day!
The Eden project has posts all along the walkways with fun signs for the children challenging them to skip, jump, hop, crawl and such like; mine happily followed the instructions along to the ice skating tent you can see ahead of them.
I have so enjoyed seeing all your lovely pictures from the February Country Kids link up and it has been extremely hard to pick a favourite for the Coombe Mill Sun Hat this month but I have finally settled on this one from Nikki Thomashttp://www.stressymummy.com/2012/02/hooray-for-sun.html because I love the look of that park and the fun the children had there. A huge thank you to all the lovely posts with some great Country outdoor play and learning.
Please keep the outdoor fun going and inspire each other by linking up here.
I love it when kids play outdoors with nothing more than space and imagination. My triplets and their new friends had so much fun with sticks and a pretend battle ground on our new land, they quite lost themselves in the games and played happily till tea. I think Daddy originally sent them out to collect stones from the land ready for grass seeding, that bit somehow became forgotten! Despite the whirling sticks and shouts from us parents no one was injured! Sometimes it is good to give them a little slack to enjoy their play.
Adding in a little structure then brings out the competitive spirit in all the children. Who can jump highest and furthest?
Who is the fastest runner?
If you have been enjoying the great outdoors with the kids, please share your play time fun with me here on the linky; new linky every Saturday promoting the benefits of fresh air and fun for children. If you can grab the badge too that would make my day:
