If you're a regular to Making Boys Men you'll know that we do a weekly outdoors post as we try to play every day outdoors come rain or shine. We've been outside for play every day (with the odd exception) for the past couple of months and this past week hasn't been any different, here's a few of the things we've been up to....
Monday 13th August to Thursday - Outside everyday, but no pictures! The boys have either been at the park or in the garden in what the boys call their 'stone pit' as there's a gravelled area at the end of the new garden.
Friday - On route to our day out at the Sealife Centre we took a stroll along the canal and the boys loved watching the canal boats chug along.
Saturday - We had a lovely visit from my sister and family and ate (and played) outside, despite a rain shower. We put on our best British faces and carried on regardless (the dappled look of the table is the rain!).
It worked really well and the boys got stuck in with some painting.
It'd also just read a post from Play Create Explore about their summer snowballs. Theirs looked really good using corn flour and shaving cream, mine were not so great! I think I added too much shaving cream - hmmm crumpled ball things that didn't splat like snowballs at all.
But, the boys were not put off! Nope they just painted them instead!
And then tried rolling them down the latest additions to our garden play - a hoover hose pipe and some PVC plumbing pipes!
Still looking for more fun? Apparently this is the stone flick game that has recently been recognised as an Olympic sport - according to my boys!
