Oscar is lucky enough to be part of his kindy's Forest Kindergarten programme. Once a week, rain or shine they head off to spend the morning in the forest. All the children help in setting up base camp before exploring their surroundings. The teachers stand back and only get involved when invited by the children. Each child is given a notebook and pencil for observations, a magnify glass and a torch. It's fabulous how a fallen log becomes a see-saw, a branch becomes a horse.

We went to the river this morning, the light was stunning and I took some shots of Hugo.....BUT all my settings were wrong on my camera and they turned out rather strange...... but looking at them a few times I decided that I quite liked them all the same.
Our trip was cut short as he decided to walk straight into the river and then fall over!
On Sunday the children helped in the garden in preparation for the winter solstice. We thought we would invite a handful of friends around to help us celebrate with a garden lantern walk.
Oscar is a hard worker, he has always enjoyed using garden tools, watering cans and wheelbarrows. But he was finally distracted by Sadie who had found two snails. They decided to build them a little house and fine house it was too.
It was a slow start to our Sunday ~ I found Sadie in her room sewing, still in her P.J's. A friend gave her some fabric scraps, one piece had fox heads printed on it which gave her an idea. She had admired this on Pinterest and thought she could make something similar using felt pieces and fabric scraps.
