What a difference a fortnight makes. Two weeks ago at Nature Nursery we had beautiful weather. In fact it was so hot that after feeding the baby lambs we all retreated to the woods for some shade and a game of hide and seek.
This week was a different story, it tipped it down! We had a Steiner (waldorf) teacher visiting and the plan had been to make stick streamers - or "whooshy sticks" and let the kids run around with them.
And I am pleased to say that despite the rain that is exactly what we did. (Learning for life would be so proud of us). I should probably point out that Goblin had been sensibly clad in a hat and raincoat at the start of our activity but he ran out into the rain after a cake break and got so instantly wet that it seemed pointless to redress him.
I wondered at one point whether the parents were having ore fun than the kids - it was certainly an activity that appealed to all ages.
Elfin decorated the dung heap with her wands.
And took on some of her big sister duties with her tiny little brother. Don't worry she did wash her hands first!
