Anything that flies! Our week outdoors

Pin It

Time for our weekly outdoor play update.  Every week we try to get outdoors for play everyday and this past week was no different.....

Monday 20th August - Our new town has a brilliant park and we've been there A LOT this summer, and today was no different!

Tuesday - We went to the Legoland Discovery Centre, which was great fun, but not a lot of time outdoors today.
Wednesday - Finally a slightly sunny day!  So we started our outdoor fun with some ice lollies!

Then I had a surprise for the boys, Auntie B had left them some planes to make.  These are the little polystyrene planes you assemble yourselves, she got them 12 for £1 and the boys enjoyed trying to assemble themselves.  Thanks B!

Next they tested out the planes flying abilities, followed by a lot of time crashing them into the stones and burying them!

Thursday - Today we had a brilliant day out at Warwick Castle with friends.  It's a great castle to visit, but even better in the summer when they have heaps of outdoor displays such as launching the trebuchet and jousting!

Friday - I was really ill on the Friday so I didn't make it outside my bedroom let alone out the house!  But, Hubby did have lots of outdoor playtime with the boys, but no pictures.
Saturday - I was still under the weather, but the boys went on a big walk with Hubby, Granny and Granddad round a nature reserve, but with the resident photographer (me) laid up no pictures again!
Sunday - Outside crafting thanks to Granny!  A lovely bit of junk modelling using balloons, buttons, LOTS of sellotape, newspapers and ribbons.  This is a dinosaur....

And this whilst not the greatest photo gives you an idea of the amount of energy exercised in Granny's garden!

I hope you've enjoyed this weeks outdoor play.  Looking for more ideas?  Why not check out my Outdoor Play pinboard
