An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ Summer Break ~ Week Five

Another great week, with hours spend outside everyday! Hikes, gardening, creeking... this is the life!

Each day we have done a little berry picking, nibbling as we go. But we did manage to save enough back to make berry juice to paint with!  The children loved it!

A few times a week, we go to Poppaw John's garden (this is Bunny's great-grandpa) to gather veggies.  This was Friday's pickings... minus several carrots eaten along the way!

We couldn't help but celebrate International Mud Day!

  4. Love the little girl with the paintbrush in her mouth, what a great idea to make your own paint, I would try this with blackberries but I just know mine would eat them all first! Thank you for sharing all your outdoor fun on Country Kids, so much that you manage to do in a week!
