We’ve had a delivery of a computer component, to mend the broken pc. We’re having one of those years so far in terms of things breaking, needing replacing, and repairing! Anyone else having one of those times too?
Anyway, I’ve digressed already! So this component came in a decent sized cardboard box, and it was quickly claimed by the children. Even at the age of 7 and 8, great games and ideas can be had with a simple cardboard box.
It became a car, complete with drawn on detail which can’t really be seen here.
It also became a den with a duvet over it, and a box for randomly sitting in to do other things in, such as eating. Somehow the simple cardboard box made everything else more exciting!
We are loving this gorgeous weather, enjoying our freedom, and the children are choosing to spend a lot of time outside.
Unfortunately about a month ago we had some strong winds and our ‘temporary’ plastic cover and metal tubing greenhouse got picked up and dumped upside down! This is the second time this has happened and it’s not repairable. We lost half the plants in there and seedlings that were just emerging.
Anyway, us being us, let’s just say we’re not always the quickest to de-clutter stuff! So we hadn’t put the parts away and they were piled up in the garden. The children decided the poles and corner pieces were perfect for building structures, like a larger version of construction toys you’d have inside and they’ve had hours of fun with it. Today it was an ‘ice-cream shop’
The ice creams were made from a mixture of herbs/flowers/ soil and water!
Last week before this lovely weather arrived, they made it into a den in the garden, and sat in the reading and writing various stuff.
Today a lot of our thoughts and time has been taken up with other circumstances, but I will post about that in a few days when I can access my old photos that are on the broken, but now being mended pc!
