Bunting, blackberries and bows and arrows!

Sounds like a very busy day, quite contrary to the ‘slow parenting’ ideal I’m trying to reach but in fact the day just evolved in this way. A day of two halves – one crafting and  spending the morning here at home making and hanging our own bunting and the second half in the park (this time Stapleford) where the trees gave us the tools for the bows and arrows and the hedgerow provided us with our delicious fare. The children got a real buzz from picking their own!  Out came the nappy sacks (clean ones of course) and off the children went to collect their bounty. They delighted in the large juicy fruits and plenty of them were munched during the picking process. Old fashioned fun. We’re off to make a blackberry pie now!! Will let you know how we get on…………
