Activity of the Week ~ We love the Outdoors

I know I was focusing the activities inside for rainy days, but the weather has been so great this week (on the whole) that I thought I'd do one for outside...

Mini Beast Hunting

Riley's crawling which is great :) so basically got her out in the garden and let her crawl around, we searched for mini beasts, didn't find many but we searched anyway.  You can try putting down a white sheet and see what creatures you find land on it...  Riley also enjoyed picking the dandelions as she crawled along, after eating one I think she worked out they didn't taste very nice so picked them rather than eating them.

Washing

Then we hung out the washing, that's a great thing to do together (as long as you don't mind a few of your clothes strewn across the lawn!) Riley loves watching the washing going round and helping take all the clothes out the basket.

Basically just enjoy the outdoors, remember don't stay in the sun too long and stick some suncream on them... then enjoy :) 

We love the outdoors, there's so much to do and see... in the words of Billy Connelly...

"There's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing"

Ohhh and we're having a picnic bench delivered this afternoon so we can all eat outside :) will be great for Riley's birthday party (here's hoping for good weather...)
