Maypole Dancing and a Fairy Party

Posted on May 13th, 2016 - Fiona

Country Kids from Coombe Mill

Mayday is quite a British Tradition from Maypole dancing to Morris dancers. Here in Cornwall Padstow really go to town for May Day and I’ve taken the kids to enjoy the festivities in the past.  Back at the farm I really wanted to capture a little of the May Day party atmosphere in our Activity Hour.  

Creating Maypole Dancing and a Fairy Party

Maypole dancing round a windbreak!

My biggest challenge was in making a Maypole. I hunted high and low before spotting the perfect solution whilst moving our boot room; an old Windbreak that was about to be thrown out. I took the best of the poles and Farmer Nick knocked it into the ground for me. A little coloured floristry ribbon and some Duck Tape Colours and my party theme was taking shape.

We began the session with a gorgeous Orchard Toys jigsaw. I love this puzzle as it is of a woodland party and full of imagination and make believe. We made the puzzle and talked about all the fun going on at the party. I explained that we were going to have our own party and set one up for the fairies in the Fairy gardens too.

Every party needs cake and the children helped me fill the cupcakes and decorate them. They would have just enough time to cook while we put on our dancing shoes.

Guy and Clio came to help me and organised the music for our dancing. I have to say Maypole dancing is harder than I remembered and it took all of the parents helping me to get a good pattern going round our maypole. It’s fair to say we were far from perfect but it was a lot of fun and took me back to my school days.

By the time we stopped the cakes we cooling and everyone was ready for a party snack. Refuelled we set about making mini Maypoles from sticks and floristry ribbon for the fairy gardens along with painted bunting.

There was just enough time for the children to choose their location for the fairy maypole dancing party and add their decorations.

While the children enjoyed a ride on the train with Guy I hung back just long enough to see the first gnomes tentatively stepping over to try their hand at Maypole dancing!

A great afternoon of fun and games here on the farm with plenty of fresh air and sunshine all the way.

How to Grow Green Fingered Kids

Posted on May 6th, 2016 - Fiona

Country Kids from Coombe Mill

Planting the Green House

After a weekend of visiting our local nursery at Cedar Croft followed by turning the cat out of the green house, Guy and I dug it over and planted up for summer with tomatoes, courgettes, strawberries and herbs. I clearly had spring planting on the brain and decided on developing green fingered kids for our activity hour.

Growing Green Fingered Kids for Activity Hour

I had a spider plant overtaking my kitchen which was sprouting of shoots all over the place. There was easily enough for one each for the children staying and I had a pot of compost left from our greenhouse planting. All I needed to start my green fingered kids off was something for them to plant into. Inspiration struck when I looked in my craft cupboard and saw the Birchalls Tea cups from a lovely tea tasting session last year. I knew they would come in handy one day.  This was the first time I had tried a gardening session, so I was a little apprehensive as to how my young helpers would get on.  I needn’t have worried, as soon as I explained what we were doing they were straight in the compost with trowels filling their cups and making a finger whole as I had shown for their baby spider plant.

With the planting complete, they set about decorating their Birchalls teacups to their own design and adding their names.  We lined them all up on the window ledge while I explained our next task.

A Nature Hunt

I had some laminated nature hunt pages from the website and challenged the children to find and tick off at least 4 on the list and that while they were doing it to find some sticks and foliage.  they were all spring flowers and the children had no trouble finding them.

Encouraging Imagination in Kids

Having matched the names and pictures of the flowers in spring,  we were now going to make pretty planters for the Fairy Gardens.  We washed and cut squash bottles, added a blob of clay to the base and stuck in our collected and foliage. Then we decorated the sticks with floristry ribbon and added these into the clay base too.

The finished results were really very pretty.  We took them to the fairy gardens along with a trowel and the children chose where to plant each one. Whilst waiting the children enjoyed sitting on Nick’s mushroom stools and playing.

When each one was safely in place I told the children how thrilled the fairies were and that back at the games room work station they had left a little treat to say thank you.

Racing back the children soon found the golden chocolate eggs and Coombe Mill badges.  A little magic had been spread and I had grown some enthusiastic green fingered kids.

Sailboats and Egg Men on an Epic Adventure

Posted on April 29th, 2016 - Fiona

  CountryKids from Coombe Mill

For activity hour I always like to come up with an adventure, a challenge or something creative. If I can add nature, education, imagination I will. After the success of raft racing a couple of weeks ago I was keen for a new water based activity. Instead of rafts on the river I decided on sailboats on the lake. I searched Pinterest for ideas but drew a blank on something substantial enough for the size of our lake. Thankfully I have Farmer Nick, my DIY guru, who enjoys a spot of sailing when the chance arises. Together we worked up a milk bottle prototype. Nick had rigging and a boom on the sail to which I added a touch of nature and an Egg Man challenge which gave a sense of adventure and the weight in the boat we needed.

I was really excited to try this out and took my prototype sailboat out to the start of the morning feed run as a reminder to everyone on timings and to set expectations for the afternoon activity.

The Sailboat Challenge

“Imagine Egg Men have landed from a foreign planet, you have to create their identity and return them home across the Coombe Mill Lake in sailboats. For every Egg Man that completes the journey there will be a treat sent back to Coombe Mill for you to keep.”

Making and Creating Sailboats and Egg Men

There followed a flurry of excitement as the children from tots to parents embraced the challenge. There were sticks, flowers and leaves to be collected

Collecting Sticks and Flowers

Bottles were cut and masks and rigging added with plenty of Duck Tape Colours, staples and string. The floral decorations made each raft bespoke along with the children’s choice of Raffia sail colours.

Egg men were designed and added to petal and leaf beds in the well of the boat.

Finally we were ready for the sailboats to take their challenge. It was quite a trek from the games room round to the lake but even the youngest managed it complete with sailboats and egg men and all lined their boats up on the slipway. We added a stone to the side of the boat without Egg Man to give balance and were ready to set sail.

However just a couple of feet out what little wind there was dropped and the boats drifting back towards the slipway! It was time for plan B and Guy gathered all the boats out of the water and rowed them to the middle of the lake where he released them once again. We agreed the challenge was now for the Egg men to make it in their sailboats back to shore at any point. There was just enough breeze to do this and the kids raced round the lake to see where their boat would hit land.

Setting the boats sailing from the middle of the lake

It was almost a full house with only one overturned sailboat and one child slipping into the lake (only knee deep). Back at the games room I collected the adventurous Egg Men to send home and as promised they left chocolate golden eggs and a Coombe Mill badge for the children.

It was such a fun afternoon and a challenge that really appealed to the children. I think this is an activity I’ll be repeating again in the summer. If you are interested in trying this one yourself I’ll be adding a tutorial for making these sailboats on Trash2Treasure next Monday.

Spring at Polzeath Beach

Posted on April 22nd, 2016 - Fiona

Morning on the Farm

It was one of those Easter holiday days that began with a soaking on the feed run amidst the excitement of newly born twin lambs, only later developing into a glorious sunny day.

New lambs in the field at Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall, England, UK.

A request for Polzeath Beach

The kids were inspired by the sun breaking through and asked if we could go to Polzeath beach. Checking the tides times and seeing there were 6 – 9 foot waves I was more than happy to oblige. We loaded up with surf boards and body boards and headed out. By the time we arrived the skies were clear blue and the beach surprisingly quiet for the holidays.

We wasted no time changing into wetsuits and the kids headed off together to the water while I hung back to capture them chatting together, not a squabble in sight.

I was pleased to see the beach lifeguards were back for the season and left my board with them while I watched the kids for a while. They have endless energy and can stay in the water for hours, I find about 45 minutes and I’m cold so I was happy for them to have a head start. Clio met up with a friend from school and they were laughing and squealing in the waves, boarding in on the same ones together between the red and yellow flags.

Further along Polzeath beach between the chequered flags I spotted Guy and Jed. Guy had a new surf board for Christmas but was struggling with it as it is really a pro board and not ideal in the big messy waves.

Jed on the other hand had borrowed his big brother’s 6ft wide board and was coasting in on wave after wave.

Eventually they swapped boards as Guy was losing heart. I swapped my phone for my body board with the lifeguards and joined them in the water. As always happens at the beach the time ran away from us and there was just enough  time for a treat ice cream from Polzeath beach ice cream van before Guy needed to be home to run the evening train.

The sunshine continued back at Coombe Mill and with the lighter evenings the triplets joined me for an evening walk. I was determined to capture what I could see turning into a beautiful sunset. It was a perfect time of day watching the light fade around us and planning our next beach day.

This was never meant to be a post and I only had my phone on me for photos, but it was one of those ordinary days that left me feeling grateful for my family and lifestyle and as such I wanted to capture our time together.

Annual Upcycled Raft Race

Posted on April 15th, 2016 - Fiona

 Country Kids from Coombe Mill

It has become an Easter tradition here at Coombe Mill to have a Spring raft race during the Easter Holidays. This is a great activity to bring together children of different age groups as we tend to have over the Easter break. From teens to tots everyone can get involved and the enthusiasm and competitive spirit it generates is infectious.

Annual Upcycled Raft Race at Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall, England, UK.

A Test Raft

We began by making our rafts. I always like to remake an example raft and check it floats before, then hand materials and tips out to everyone else at Activity Hour.

Raft Making

There followed a hive of activity and creative thinking as milk bottles, sticks and plastic cartons  are lashed together with string and masking tape. Flowers, petals and ferns gave each unique design their own recognisable finish.

When everyone has finished crafting, we headed upstream to the Coombe Mill footbridge. The excitement was already building and it was all I could do to contain the older ones who had ran on ahead eager to start. When everyone had caught up I managed a quick photo on the footbridge steps.

Let the Raft Race Begin

Then it was time to line up over the edge of the bridge, we have had a few false starts in previous years but I think my ‘shouty’ voice must be improving as everyone held their raft tight and waiting for the grand countdown before letting go.

Raft Race Drop at Coombe Mill Family Farm Holiday, Cornwall, England, UK.

The above clip is thanks to the Go Pro strapped to the front of my raft; however the drop managed to quickly send it upside down so most of the rest of the recording is of the bottom of the river bed! There are a few fun clips in the video at the end.

The children raced along the riverbank cheering on their rafts while some of the older ones waded after them through the river with Guy freeing any that became stuck on rocks at the water’s edge. The wifi is patchy along the river so the quality isn’t great from the periscope recording but you can hear the shrieks of excitement.

The river was running quite fast this year and it was a struggle to beat the rafts to the finish line. Everyone crowded on the bridge to cheer them through while our brave water boys worked swiftly to collect the rafts as they came under the bridge.

The rafts were somewhat bedraggled after the river had played with them but there were still a few children taking their ones home as a memento of their day at the raft race.

I think holding a raft race is a tradition that will live on for a few years yet or at least for as long as I can persuade Guy to brave the water for me and save our rafts from sailing out to sea at Padstow!
