Welcome back to another Outdoor Play Party. If you've been outdoors this week then please do link up your post below. We've been outside loads this summer, but I've not been so great at posting about it, so here are a few of the things the boys got up to during a recent trip to the park, all their own ideas.....
1 - Tree climbing
The ultimate classic and could Champ look more pleased with himself!
2 - Create your own bat and ball
With a bit of help from Pa this kept Bud entertained for ages
3 - Toddler photography
Our not yet two year old took a bit of a keen interest in the camera, I now have fifty photos of his thumb!
4 - Nature Hunting
Don't worry this is mega zoomed in and no animals or children were harmed in the taking of this picture (unfortunately the same can't be said for when I let Dude inspect a dead wasp which promptly stung him, HUGE Mummy guilt). Anyhow, on this occasion we inspected bees, found a tiny frog and the boys tried to catch butterflies.
5 - Make your own Tools
Very proud Mummy moment when Champ made his own stake out of a stick by whittling it down against tree roots for AGES! Then once happy with his tool he started to dig with it, I happily let him carry this tool around the park and only thought afterwards that perhaps to others it may have looked a bit lethal, opps!
6 - Hide and Seek
Yes a two you truly do believe a bit of greenery completely masks your presence!
Ready for the Outdoor Play Party? My favourite post from last time was from Takoma Park who wrote a great article about risk taking. If you're a parent or carer who lets your kids climb UP the slide then this is for you!
