A few simple silk scarfs from the opp shop tied to drift wood and this one happily danced and twirled her heart out for at least half an hour.

#Repost @_simply_bea_ with @make_repost ・・・ 🎨Nature Paint Brushes🎨 . Have you tried making them before? I made ours using herbs this time as some of our herbs needed harvesting 😉 I used mint, parsley, rosemary and Lemon grass. The lemon grass was quite sturdy to bend so I experimented on making them like a flower so the kids can stamp that on paper. Then add paint and a big piece of paper and let them create their artwork!😊 . We talked about Spring and how we’ve noticed some trees are growing new leaves and flowers blooming everywhere. It was a nice way to discuss the changing seasons. I think they did well and one actually looks like flowers blossoming in a garden, don’t you think? 😍 . The kids made a few artworks as they enjoyed painting and ended up using their hands and getting quite messy🙈 luckily we did our creations outside which was easier to clean up 😉 #embracethemess . . .

Nolan was very pleased to know it was #nationalcupcakeday today. Not that he felt he needed an excuse to eat a cupcake, because when you’re a child...when isn’t it cupcake day?! 😜

Watching imaginative play unfold is so rewarding 😍 Seeing their little faces light up with excitement as they discover new potential within their play, or the pride on their face when they find their own solutions to problems and create new ways to play. Everyday of play is an adventure to our little ones. And openended toys are great adventure tools. Do you have a favourite openended toy?

@youngnlearning

We love hearing feedback from our happy customers, and this one in particular really stood out to us recently: “The possibilities of the Curvy board are open-ended and unlimited.” - this really says it all. Play that has no limits 💞 And just look at Autumn’s smile 😍

So this morning I decided it would be nice to go down to the beach whilst the tide was out and play in the muddy sand, to kick off this weeks #october_play prompts .....it didn’t end well 🙈 After lots of fun we headed back and decided to have a play in the muddy stream..BAD IDEA! Turns out this was in fact sinking mud (I had not spotted the signs, warning people about this.. 🤦🏼‍♀️) after Jensen had slid in, I realised he couldn’t get himself out and I had to get in to save him...I instantly sunk up to my thighs! Slightly panicked and whilst shouting at Olivia to stay where she was, I managed to drag Jensen and then myself out.. after some cuddles and a few tears we started our very wet walk home 😂,🙌. We bumped into some local dog walkers on our way, who told us some pretty scary horror stories of others getting stuck in the same place 😳 currently at home having some hot chocolate and feeling very lucky it wasn’t any worse 😕 @everyday_is_playday @easyplaywitheanda @megaawesomemessyart @davidson.and.daughter @playing_with_sophie @playtime_with_dougie @harrylovestoplay @growing_happy_monsters @marty_messyplay_and_me @craftymothering @littledoll23 @montessoriyerin @mini_learner @yazookiddo @mummydiarys @ourmindfulpod @thefunnanny @chasing_my_tales @playdayswithzac #mudplay #muddyplay #beach #muddypuddles #natureplay #playoutside #eyfs #playideas #mumsthatplay #learningthroughplay #play #fun #sahm #playideasforpreschool #summerplaypower #childcareadventures #letsplaythierway #shareyourplaywithme #todayourchildren @today.our.children #funwiththecraftymum #play_my_way #kidslovelylearning #playfullearningoctober #simplesensory_playtime #weloveautumnplay2019 #sibling_simple_play

🌱🎃 THE PUMPKIN EXPERIMENT 🧪 🌱 . About 10 days ago we started an experiment... I was inspired by my friend @little_old_life who had taped some seeds up on her window for her daughter to watch the germination process 🌱 It was great timing because Mr.2 is currently very interested in pumpkins and farming so I thought I’d give it a go too!! . . We started by making a pumpkin first which he painted and helped decorate. Then we cut out the middle and put some fresh pumpkin seeds onto a piece of wet paper towel (inside a zip lock bag) and taped it up to the window. He watched it intently for days... ‘Any pumpkins yet mummy?!’ He’d ask. On the third day he spent about ten minutes just staring at it before declaring ‘Not growing mummy!’ in a sad wee voice. I thought all hope was lost tbh and then yesterday.... (swipe to the end!) we have pumpkins sprouting!! 🌱 🎃🌱🎃🌱🎃🌱🎃 . . #play_my_way #greenfingers #gardeningwithkids #naturalchildhood #playspiration #pumpkinseeds #halloweenplaychallenge #growingpumpkins #childledlearning #scienceplay #teachermum #playislearning #pumpkinplay #playmatters #everydayplayhacks #everydayplay #playideas #scienceinece #earlylearning #earlychildhoodeducation #preschoolplay #preschoolhalloween #kinderhalloween #nzkids #natureplaymothers #kiwimummyblogger #mumlife

Moon rituals Do you have any moon rituals? Observing and celebrating the lunar cycle is fairly new for me, only in the last couple of years have I learnt more and started to create my own rituals. The full moon is nourishing and energising, and the perfect time to release anything no longer serving you, as well as recharging your crystals under the full moon light. Dancing or doing yoga are both wonderful ways to release energy during this time. I have spoken a little about the moon with my kids, and they know to put their crystals out for recharging, but so far that is the only ritual I share with them when it comes to the lunar cycle - but I hope to learn more about the power of the moon, and the moon cycle; with them. Yesterday we chose some river rocks to paint the different phases of the moon on, and used the flash cards from @arkandluna to talk about the phases and the order they go in. Do you have any moon rituals you celebrate with your kids? #natureplaymothers

How pretty are these red okra!!! 💕 So, the hubby got the seeds of this gorgeous burgundy ladies finger and grew them. He is the plant expert. I and the lil one harvest them once in two days. We love to see the buds turning into beautiful flowers and then into baby okra that grow taller and taller. Once cut he brings it home himself (usually). 🌸 Today, he held the okra and told me it had small spines (many fresh vegetables have these fuzzy spiny hair). I realized this was a nice sensory learning! He noted which one was big and which small. The spiraled one he compared to a fan saying it goes round n round. 😁 😄 Did you know these are magic colour changing okra? 😆 On cooking they loose their bright burgundy and turn a dull green with a pink tinge! Swipe to see it halfway through the colour change. #redokra #okra #farmtoplate #farmadventures #freshingredients #toddlergardener #sensoryplaytolearn #wherelearningmeetsplay #exploringnaturewithchildren #bhindi #playislearning #wildandfree #enjoytheordinaryinoctober #harvest_simple_play #natureplaymothers #natureplay #wildschooling #childhoodunplugged #childledplay #play_my_way #simplesensory_playtime #the12weeksofautumn

Icy blossom play. Such a great sensory activity for little ones - we created a few ice blocks with petals from the back yard, and froze in different size moulds. Not just for the warmer months (although in the spring sunshine is definitely nice!) ice play is wonderfully simple but actively stimulates the senses. @everyeducaid shared a post a few weeks ago full of ideas on how to create and play with ice this spring. #natureplaymothers . 284/365 #kyliesyearoflight

The power of coloured paper straws... I am super proud of my 3 year old daughter. Last weekend we attended a gathering and we asked if it was ok to bring our kids along as we were unable to find anyone who could look after them. I was feeling a bit nervous about it and actually, a year ago I would have probably just stayed home and missed the event. But I am so happy we attended. The gathering started with giving 5 pieces of paper straws to each attendee to be used in a game. Obviously the coloured straws went directly to our kids little hands. My almost two year old fall asleep for a while, but believe it or not my daughter spent 4 hours (almost, as the last 30 min we had to go outside to explore…) playing with the straws: drawing houses, squares, circles, collected all the straws from everyone in the event, organised them by colours, put them in line organised by colours… I was so proud of her!! Everyone was very impressed, including us! As this is not always the case… but in this instance, I felt like we are doing a good job and no phone was needed to keep them entertained and happy. Both Warren and I have a background in electronic engineering, and have always worked with technology. But when we had kids, we realised we didn’t want them to grow up with too much technology around, at least during the early years. Our world nowadays runs with technology and it is everywhere, but we believe they will have time to learn about it once they are a bit older. Don’t get me wrong, they do watch TV and my daughter likes to see photos and videos of herself and us all on my phone (we all need some time off parenting 🙂 ) But even when they watch TV they are asking me to sit with them or to play with them as the same time as the TV is on, and they end up loosing interest on the TV very quickly. What’s your super proud mum moment? We’d love to hear your stories 😁

How many children can you fit on a Curvy board? 🤣 . . Balance is such an important skill and one that is only developed through experiementing with movement in the early years. . . Curvy boards are great for giving children an opportunity to engage with movement in different ways and they have loads of fun testing their balance as they wobble around too! . .

@youngnlearning

Why do we love open ended play? We all want the best for our kids, and sometimes we as parents feel the pressure to provide enriching activities to encourage their development - particularly in the early years. In actual fact, one of the best ways to support child development in the early years is to provide lots of opportunities for children to engage with open-ended play. Play without direction or instruction increases creativity, develops problem solving skills, encourages collaboration and team work with others and provokes their curiosity. And watching them develop and progress these skills in their play is really magical to watch too 💞 #snaphappybritmums

The Outback 🐍 Today we made another Australian animal small world - this time with red rice and pieces of bark. Other tools we used to play were paintbrushes, a scoop made from a popped party popper, a hammer, tongs and a red pot. Miss 3 played independently with this play tray for about an hour! (Still supervised). She loved making rice sandcastles, houses for the animals, using the various scoops to fill the pot, putting the animals through the bark tunnel and looking at the pieces with her magnifying glass. Lovely tray from @beautiful.everytime - she’s brought out a number of new kits lately and has sensory starter kits too! Don’t forget to get yourself a discount with the codeTREASURE10. Also a shout out to @our.adventures.of.wonder who gifted us this beautiful bark tunnel and accompanied us on a nature walk to find the rest - always great company 😘 #threatenedspeciesplay #natureplayseptember #natureplay #natureplaymatters #smallworldplay #trayfortheday #australiananimals #beautifultrayseverytime #finemotorskills #rainbowrice #sensorytray #brandrepaus #gifted #naturefinds #play_my_way #simplesensory_playtime #shareyourplaywithme #todayourchildren @today.our.children #naturetray #naturetable #nativeanimals #gumnuts

Camellia Bud Flower Fairies ⚘🧚‍♀️🌱 This idea was totally inspired by my gorgeous 6 yr old niece this morning. She had a little sleepover at my parents place and I popped in to give her a quick cuddle. She was sitting at her little table making fairies out of camellia buds and toothpicks! I thought this was just fabulous so snuck some buds home for the boys and I to make our own! 🥰🧚‍♀️⚘ #tagfromtheheart @activelittles @tagfromtheheart @montessorifromtheheart @woodnutty @threefoldmama #funwiththecraftymum @thecraftymum.ie #weloveautumnplay2019 #harvest_simple_play #play_my_way #natureplaymothers #natureplay #nature #natureart #kids #kidscraft #craft #stayathomemum #mammasthatplay #flowers #spring #sensoryplay #learningthroughplay #imaginativeplay #imagination #fairies #fairy

Boys First Overnight Hike Yesterday Dan and the boys set off on their first ever overnight hike to the Cathedral Ranges! I was nervous about how they would cope with the walking, the terrain and having to carry a small bag each, but apparently they both took it in their stride and were little hiking champs! They enjoyed stunning views, made a homemade axe, saw lots of lyrebirds and a lizard, made custard for dessert and did a bit of rock climbing. They came home so excited to tell me all about it and bought me home my very own beetle shell 🤣🐞🌳 #hiking #camping #adventure #nature #natureplay #outdoors #raisingboys #learningthroughplay #startwalkinginseptember #ppcamping #play_my_way #mammasthatplay #magicofchildhood #fun #kids

A U T U M N C U R I O S I T Y - Lexi’s favourite saying at the moment is ‘tell me about something Mummy’... and what she means by this is ‘teach me something new’! Which I just love! . . 🍁 This all started because of her curiosity surrounding autumn and the changing leaves. She has always loved this Richard Scarry book (perfect for this week’s @readalongplayalong ‘S’) but to experience autumn is just so magical and we spend everyday walking through our local parks searching for orange and red leaves (which are definitely harder to find than the brown and yellow ones!) . . . 🐿 We have since re-read this book and Lexi looks for the squirrels and other animals and offers them food to fill them up ready for the winter hibernation! . . 📖 I just love her kindness, her nature curiosity and how she loves to explore through books and play! • • • • • #readalongplayalong_s #bookishplay #weloveautumnplay2019 #cantwait2play_winterplay #tagfromtheheart #richardscarry #autumn #autumnplay #trayfortheday #flisattable #learnthroughplay #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #eyfs #earlyyears #playathomemummy #natureplay #sensoryplay #simplesensory_playtime #letsplaytheirway #play_my_way #shareyourplaywithme #autumnactivities #kidsbookstagram #kidsbookswelove

Icy Reef 🐠 This was the activity we had planned for yesterday’s #threatenedspeciesplay prompt of reef and #natureplayseptember prompt of ice. However, I grossly misjudged how long it would take to freeze and ice block of this size! To make this we used plastic animals, gems, nature bits for coral and blue water. We arranged it all in a trofast container and put it in the deep freezer. Even today it wasn’t completely frozen, but all the pieces were frozen in. I think it was actually better this way as it would have taken longer than the kids attention span to get the pieces out otherwise! Both kids thoroughly enjoyed using the @letthemplay_toys hammer, and it really got a work out! Glad it’s such good quality and didn’t break! 😅 swipe across to see the hammering action! #homegrownlearning #trayfortheday #natureplay #natureplaymothers #natureplaymatters #sensoryplay #grossmotorskills #play_my_way #getoutside #outdoorplay #summerplay #playtray #onthetufftraytoday #funwiththecraftymum #shareyourplaywithme #simplesensory_playtime #letthemplaytoys #australianmadetoys #beautifultoys #natureinspiredplay

A neighbor gave us a these crayon images (extras she had from her classroom) & I tried to turn them into a crayon box craft, but the kids had their own plans (of course!). E colored each a color of the rainbow and then taped them together (her favorite part) & S made swirls of colors all over his. Just some fun silliness. ❤️ #letsplaytheirway #play_my_way

Ever wondered how a Curvy balance board is made? This video shows the process of pressing together 13 layers of FSC certified beech wood from the French forests, using this machine which has been specifically made for our design! The process takes only a few seconds under high pressure, then it's sanded and finished, the Curvy logo goes on and a spot of varnish completes it! And afterwards, we're left with a beautifully finished Curvy balance board. 😍

🌳A walk in the forest🌳 . 🌞It was an amazing day today, the sun was out and it was warm enough for short sleeves! We went for a walk in the Bush up the end of our road. As we walked we collected little treasures. We saw a birdie, stream, found some forget-me-nots, skelton leaves, barks and lots of ferns. Little Miss had to step over roots and traverse the ups and downs of the track. She fell over a few times but was so resilient. . 🌿When we got home we laid out our treasures and I though we'd do some leave prints and create a picture of the forest. We dipped the leaves in acrylic paint and pressed them on the paper. We then add ripped paper for the ground then once dried, we used watercolours to paint the sky, add more bushes and some dirt. This was a mix of brush and finger painting. . 🎨It was such a nice way to use our treasures. Little miss loved painting and it ended up everywhere. 《Sept 25th: forest》 #natureplayseptember  @growing.kind @2little_lims @allthemummery  @larliebear_the_label @grays_at_play @jessie_and_jacob @thejoyjournal  @wild_mountain_child .

Day twenty-three of #natureplayseptember SMELL We picked a few lemons from our tree and made lemon scented playdough. I used my normal playdough recipe but used 1/4 cup of lemon juice instead of cream of tartar and reduced the water by 1/4 cup. I used a small amount of yellow food colouring to create a vibrant colour and added a handful of grated lemon rind to add a bit of texture into the play. No photos of the actual play but they had fun with minimal playdough “toys”, instead preferring to create patterns from whole lemons and leaves off the tree. . . . . . . #nzkids #nzmum #holdthemoments #learningthroughplay #playdough #natureplay #raisingnaturelovers #nature #liveauthentic #childhoodunplugged #freerangekids #explorenature #sensoryplay #oureverydaymoments #play_my_way #letthembelittle #learningthroughplay #kidsforreal #toddleractivities #stillswithstories #outdoorkidnz #littlestoriesofmylife @growing.kind @2little_lims @allthemumery @larliebear_the_label @grays_at_play @jessie_and_jacob @thejoyjournal @wild_mountain_child

Pink, pink, pink 🐷 Today the prompt for #threatenedspeciesplay is sky. So of course Miss 3 wanted to do something with Skye because #pawpatrolislife - so probably not quite what they had in mind for this prompt 😂 So we collected up some pink toys and made some pink ooblek. We love our @acreativemindaustralia sensory table as there are so many option for use. Today we used 3 of the spot and there was plenty of room for the girls to play ❤️ we also used our @devine.little.minds colour cards again which Miss 3 loves matching things to. The girls favourite thing to do with this set up was “fish” the pink gems out with the scoops 💖 The girls absolutely loved this and Miss 3 has requested orange tomorrow and collected a whole container of orange toys for it! 🧡 #childledplay #childledlearning #childled #sensoryplay #senorybin #sensorytray #trayfortheday #todayourchildren @today.our.children #pawpatrol #pinkplay #playingwithcolour #flisattable #printables #australianmadetoys #australianmade #shopsmall #shoplocal #messyplay #outdoorplay #150hoursoutdoors #letsplaytheirway #interestbasedlearning #shareyourplaywithme #funwiththecraftymum #play_my_way #simplesensory_playtime

Took S for a short walk around the cul de sac this morning to find some leaves. We are slowly venturing out & about now that he’s nearly a week into potty training. Then after snack I attempted to have them Mae sunflowers using the leaves as petals. Cute idea but they had their own ideas 😂. E made her picture with the leaves (petals) falling off the flower (very cool idea for autumn) & S had his leaves singing/dancing instead. We then went back outside for E to collect some more leaves for more crafting. ❤️🍁🍂 #kidcraft #letsplaytheirway #play_my_way #preschooler #toddleractivities #tagfromtheheart

So yesterday while Jensen was at nursery we took “Daisy’s Hide and Seek” out in the garden with her bath duck. We read the story together then hid “Pip” in different spots around the garden. Olivia loves to hide my keys or phone in random spots so I know this would be a winner 😂💕 #kidsbooks #kidsbookshelf #bookplay #kidsreading #bookishbingo #readalongplayalong_s #bringbooksalive #cantwait2play_winterplay #playideas #mumsthatplay #learningthroughplay #play #fun #sahm #playideasforpreschool #summerplaypower #childcareadventures #letsplaythierway #shareyourplaywithme #todayourchildren #funwiththecraftymum #play_my_way

Today we went on a nature scavenger hunt! It was so easy to create, and lots of fun! It was a different version to how we normally play - instead of collecting lots of things, each time Buddy found something, he coloured in the picture. Although we couldn't leave the park without bringing home a stick and a flower 😂 The dandelion took us the longest to find, but then we found SO many! And it was so special watching the little ducklings.. we actually found two families with baby ducks (and a Swamp Hen family with babies too!) But then they got too close to each other, and there was a bit of parental protection tension happening so we kept our distance! 🦆 #scavengerhunt #natureplay #outdoorplay #naturescavengerhunt #naturebased #naturebasedplay #outsideactivities #outsideplay #natureexplorer #naturekids #naturelovers #naturetreasurehunt #naturetreasures #naturelooseparts #natureplayseptember #play_my_way

It’s Monday! We managed to squeeze this activity which is pretty simple. While my daughter attended cubs , I spent some time with my son... Mummy and son bonding time! Ticking off ✔️Journey - John and Noah ✔️Nature - Dove 🕊 🔴This activity came about when we were at a park on a Saturday evening. We were trying to make the most out of the sunshine ☀️as we know the rain 🌧 is coming soon... There was a pet corner and it was filled with beautiful birds 🦢🐧🐦 🕊... Both kids absolutely love watching the birds and we spotted a dove 🕊! It was a diamond 💎 dove 🕊... such a posh name for a bird. I was so happy when an idea 💡 just came to me... 🔴I took this opportunity to ask the kids if they could remember any stories in the Bible that has a dove 🕊 in it. Both kids thought and thought 💭 while we pick fallen flower 🌹 🌺 🌸 petals for my class on Sunday ( Garden of Gethsemane). Dottie 👧🏻said Noah ! There was a dove 🕊 in the story of Noah’s ark 🛳. Koala 🐨 said when John baptized Jesus ! It’s encouraging to know that your kids remember all the Bible stories.. I do feel my kids keep me on my toes and I would try my best to be a Christian role model to them. 🔴On Monday evening, koala 🐨 and I sat down and read his toddler bible of the two stories they mentioned on Saturday. After reading the stories we drew a dove 🕊 together . We talked about the different parts of a bird. He attempted to write the word ‘DOVE’ and labeled two parts of the dove ( beak and eyes). Now it’s your turn!

We have our first conker haul of the year! 🌰 🕊️ We tried out Abels new @learningresourcesuk kidnoculars extreme searching for birds in the trees. They magnify sound too so it was really exciting to take them out exploring. 🕷️The boys have been kindly #gifted a pair of @squelchwellies each, they are so much fun, clear boots with lots of funky sock options, really soft and comfortable too! Today Abe chose his tractor socks , check out my stories to see his rugby skills in the skeleton socks!

🔥 EXPLORING FIREFIGHTERS 🚒 . . For about 2 months now Mr.2 has been absolutely fascinated by firefighters! His favourite show on tv is Fireman Sam and it’s our special treat to watch it each night to end our day before his Dad arrives home. He has been exploring everything to do with them through his play. Using the Playdough, driving his car around the house (aka Jupiter from Fireman Sam!) and most recently dressing up as one at Playcentre! I love seeing him making sense of the world around him through his play. We are hoping to go along to the local fire stations open day next month which I think will just blow his mind 🤯 😂 So much fun! I love doing life with you sweet boy of mine (and thank goodness for the #toylibrary is all I can say!). . . #unpackingplay #play_my_way #playislearning #pretendplay #roleplay #thankgodforthetoylibrary #playdoughfun #kmartfinds #mummylife #mumblogger #kiwimum #playideas #firefighterplay #teachermum #earlychildhoodeducation #earlyyearsteacher #learningathome #playcentrenz

Topic: Jesus in gethesamane Matthew 26:36-46 Well I must say this class was quite a challenge as I needed to make it simple &concise for kids age 2-5 yrs old to understand. It was not an easy topic & it took me a week to come out with this 💡 idea. ✔️Started off with us ( my kids) collecting flower 🌸 petals & leaves 🍁 which had fallen off in a park on a Saturday. ✔️I prepared cardboard tree trunk & a square piece of cardboard. ( love recyclables) ✔️We started our class with the story of Jesus in the garden 🌳 of Gethsemane from Matthew 26:36-46. We had a little recap on the names of the 12 apostles. ✔️Craft time: We made the most beautiful art of how we could imagine the garden of Gethsemane would look like. I love the drawings of the kids. They drew Jesus praying 🙏🏼 and 3 apostles ( James, John & Peter) sleeping 💤 😴. ✔️I love how it turned out so pretty! Lots of mums and dads came & told me they loved this piece of creation that their kids made. ❤️I personally loved it because a picture does tell a thousand words...

LEAF FINE MOTOR PLAY 🍂 S was exploring the leaves that have started falling off the trees and I showed her how they make noise when you crumpled them and that you can rip them apart. Ripping apart a leaf for a one year old is such a great and simple fine motor activity. I then created a little leaf activity for her by poking a hole in a leaf and putting it on a stick. She enjoyed taking the leaves off the stick and then trying to put them back on. Today is the last day to comment on my pictures for this week to be entered to win a children’s book!

Mirrors are a great way to play with light. We had fun focusing the reflected light from the morning sun! Little one was amazed that the circle of light moved when I moved the mirror. He was particularly happy to have the reflected light fall on him!! What a great way to start your day!! . ☀ . The mirror we used is in an old makeup box that I cleaned up for him to play and store little loose parts. . . #reducereuse #reuse #1000hoursoutside #stemkids #sciencefortoddlers #playwithlight #reflections #natureplaymothers #letsplaytheirway #the12weeksofsummer #natureisthebestteacher #learnthroughplay #teachthemthroughplay #play_my_way #shareyourplaywithme

#selfcaresunday Do you ever close your eyes and imagine being able to sit down on the sofa, for just 5 minutes, and enjoy a cup of tea…or better still, a HOT cup of tea? 😍 One of the best things about Curvy balance boards, is that they decrease boredom and increase concentration. So put your feet up, enjoy your tea and maybe even sneak a biscuit whilst the kids are deeply immersed in a new world of play.

She’s right-handed, she claimed her right-hand pains after three paintings!

A Walk In Nature 🌿🐦🌼 For me a great way to recharge and reset is a gentle walk in the sunshine amongst the beauty of nature. This week has been quite draining and I woke this morning still feeling flat, but the boys were full of energy as usual! So we went for a wonder in one of the local reserves and I was amazed as always at the beauty that surrounds us. In the space of an hour we had discovered a cluster of frog eggs, various bones including an animal skull, a burrow, the most beautiful coloured mosses and leaves and many kangaroos. The boys climbed trees, used rocks to carve and crush things, jumped in muddy puddles and collected small treasures. What a surprising and magical start to the day! #threatenedspeciesplay TREES @snowcherrymedia @gumdots @puggle.post @our.mini.creations #weloveautumnplay2019 #harvest_simple_play #letsplayheuristic #play_my_way #natureplaymothers #natureplayseptember DIRT @andbreathe_challenges #ourearth_calendar #playfullearningbacktoschool #homegrownlearning #mammasthatplay #natureplay #nature #walk #lovewhereyoulive #sensoryplay #outdoors #explore #kids #family

Yippie! It’s Friday! I cannot wait for the weekend to come. We had such a busy week and everything is pilling up ! This activity was done in stages over a few days. Finally, managed to collect it all together now. H ere we are ticking off :-✔️Proverbs ✔️Nature Joining in this amazing group at #kidsplaytruth 🔴Proverbs 16:24 ‘Gracious words are like honeycomb, sweetness to the souls and health to the body’ 🔴Nature- bees 🐝 We were very blessed to have an opportunity to meet a beekeeper while we were playing in the countryside. I never knew how complex it is just to obtain a bottle of honey. We take things for granted thinking that it is so easy to just go to a shop and buy honey. Little did we know there is so much going on in that hive in order to produce a bottle of honey 🍯. There is so much to learn about this tiny creature called ‘🐝 bees’... I am grateful this kind hearted bee keeper was willing to take time to explain and show us the honey comb , the larvae , the hive, the bees and explain to us how honey is collected and the process of it. Our God is an amazing creator ... 🔴Toast with honey 🍯 We had the most delicious toast! So sweet and yummy! Reminded me of my fav toy ‘Pooh Bear ‘... 🔴 Play dough fun. I love this activity. So much fun creating a bee 🐝 using play dough. Have a blessed weekend! Now it’s your turn!

⭐️ Hi! We are super excited to share with you what we did today! We are ticking off ✔️’Apples‘ ✔️’Nature’ at #kidsplaytruth 🔷Nature- Vegetables and fruits 🔷Apples- ‘The fruit of good and evil’ 1️⃣This was super random as we were exploring a park after swimming. One of the impromptu kind of activity we have when we are bless with sun ☀️ shine ... We bumped into lots of apple trees, courgettes, blackberries, tomatoes, corn! We had gone fruit picking before (cherries, strawberries, raspberries ) but not apples! Took the opportunity for the kids to have fun picking some apples 🍎 🍏 . We totally loved it! It was so nice to pick fruit directly from the trees... what an experience! I do feel both of them learn so much from little chunks of being involved and getting a chance to experience things... I love that I am given this opportunity to make memories with them and hopefully they will grow up remembering this... 2️⃣We then continued our walk 🦶🏻 and I took this opportunity to talk to the kids about 2 important characters in the Bible. We talked about Adam and Eve and the garden of Eden. How it would be like to be able to walk around a garden 🌳 and pick any fruit or vegetable and consume it. I have always admired people who had the passion for gardening ... some of our friends shared with us stories about their allotments. They grow all sorts of vegetables and fruits. I must admit I do not have green fingers... I love cooking but I find it quite daunting to plant and grow. I am totally clueless when it comes to gardening.. It has been a dream for me to be able to pick produce out of the garden fresh and cook it! This year we ( kids and I) had attempted planting some herbs( dill, basil), cress, onion, strawberries in our garden. We are getting there soon... 😉 Are you a green finger person? What is your award winning vegetable or fruit you have planted in your very own garden? Now it’s your turn!
