I Never Knew City Farms Were Cheap! Plus Bubbles Make Everything Better

My 3 year old with the Olympic Torch
Was running so late this morning that I was thinking of throwing the whole Six Weeks plan out - we popped into the supermarket and one of the London 2012 Olympic torch runners was there offering to let shoppers have their photo taken with it! Lovely surprise and an excellent motivation for me to keep the kids out and about. You never know what you'll find.

Have a google for local city farms - you might be surprised to find that your local one is free, asks for donations only, or has a very low entrance fee as well as picnic areas - a more interactive version of the zoo, at a fraction of the price.

Bubbles Make Everything Better (Except Soap In Your Eyes)

You will need:
  • Buckets
  • Paddling pool
  • Water
  • Bubble bath
  • Paintbrushes
  • Bubble mix + blowers
Spice up water play in the garden by adding bubble bath to your paddling pool.

Take it further:
  • Try getting some paintbrushes and buckets of cold water too, instant out door paint to colour in the patio with.
  • Can you make your own bubble blowers? Do different shapes make different bubbles?
