Tuff Spot Painting

I really like the idea of the tuff spot trays but by the time I knew much about them I felt Jack wouldn’t get that much use from one. Now Rowan likes painting and drawing and it being great for sensory play it seemed like a good investment. The first one I ordered was unfortunatly damaged in the post but now we have a new one that is getting lots of use.

Paddling Pool Fun

After saying he didn’t want to go out and would be bored, Jack had a great day at the paddling pool in Stoke Park.

Before we’d left he was asking when we can go back! 😁 He had a good few hours playing in the playground afterwards too. Definitely a hit.

Surrey Hills and Chantry Wood

Today we walked from Pilgrims Way across Surrey Hills and through some of Chantry Woods. We had planned to go to Pewley Downs but found we couldn’t follow our planned route as the path was too narrow once we were almost there. We had to come another way along some country lanes and then streets back to town.

We spotted lots of different plants and trees including elder, speedwell, dock, nettles, plantain, oak and horse chestnut. Also saw a rabbit, squirrels and various birds. Found a magpie feather to bring home and ticked off lots in Jack’s I- Spy nature book.
