I think these photo’s sum up the outdoors to us as a family, even though I don’t think Hubby agree’s. I am very much if they are getting covered in mud yay! Hubby is “out of the mud you will get dirty!”
I think children should be able to explore all their environments, but only if they are safe to do.
Building mud pies I personally think is the main part of being a child, splashing in mud and getting their hands dirty!
Bear wasn’t into Mud and Dirt when he was tiny but now he is at school he isn’t afraid to get down and dirty with the mud!
Bell however isn’t keen but will certainly grab her wellies for a bit of splashing in the rain and a muddle puddles I blame Pepper Pig for this!
One thing I wouldn’t change as a family we don’t really plan for day’s out everything we do is usually spontaneous and last minute.
This summer we are going away, we are going to have a mini Glastonbury in the garden ,without the rain I hope, a few day trips and a few trips to National Trust sites. What are your Plans this summer?
