Dragon Island!

Today we made an island from newspaper and tissue. Just waiting for the paint to dry and then we can add the finishing touches and some dragons.

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.

Gluten Free Vegan Crispy Bars

Today we tried out a recipe from Pinterest for homemade crispy bars. Jack really likes the bars from Tesco so was excited to have a go at making his own.

We used a mixture of half vegan milk chocolate and half dairy free dark chocolate. The recipe only needed two other ingredients: coconut oil and rice crispsy cereal.

Jack measured out the ingredients and mixed everything together once the chocolate was melted. After spreading out on a tray they only took a couple of hours to be set and ready to eat.
