Living Arrows | 24/52

This past week has been a funny with the weather, I could tell the children were getting a bit bored of being inside, it wasn't warm enough to go in the pool in the garden and I just feel they are a bit tired of playing with the same garden toys. So I went on Pinterest and found a great easy little activity for them to do. I simply filled a bowl with water and placed some plastic dinosaurs inside, stuck it in the freezer and once it was frozen they could use any objects they could find outside (I provided the spoons) to help them get the dinosaurs out. It was lovely watching them together, Archie spent some time watching Isla and what exactly she was doing and then he would try. 


^ The look on his face when he could see a bit of dinosaur poking through!




^ She enjoyed this activity the most and spent ages trying to get the dinosaurs out.

  6. Fab idea, I used to put glitter, leaves etc in plastic containers with water, loads of different sizes and then make "ice age" for my children with dinosaurs and cavemen figures they loved it :)
