Wednesday Tips #9

puddle splashing
Although Winter days may bring rain and cold weather, rain makes puddles and puddles are like a magnet to young children. It can be great fun to put on the waterproof boots and warm clothes before heading off for a walk together. I favour a walk along the boardwalk at the beach where there are large and small puddles to splash in after rain, however, a walk through a park or even down the street may offer puddles too. So get out your stout shoes, rustle up your stamping energy and have fun together before going home for a warm drink and snack.

Wednesday Tips #8

ImageHave to love school holidays and a sunny Winter day at the beach!

Kids love a picnic and it doesn’t have to be a grand affair. A couple of bread rolls, some fruit and a water bottle each and you’re ready to go. Sand castle building is fun and you can get some exercise too throwing a Frisbee. It’s a good idea for the kids to wear their gumboots if they have them and remember to take a bucket or bag for collecting treasures such as empty seashells or interesting pebbles.
