Wheelbarrow Play

One thing I love about where I work is the proximity of parks and playgrounds. On Thursday we had a big adventure planned but instead we all decided to have a play at our local park.

After climbing; chasing and swinging until my little charges’ hearts were content we hopped skipped and jumped to a park bench to have something to eat – watermelon and bananas. The magnifying glass came out when we spotted some ants munching on their own morning tea. We followed them all the way around a tree where we then played hide n seek through the surrounding bushes.

Before leaving our little spot to go back home we took turns at playing wheelbarrows – lots of laughter to be had in this activity!

In the car I keep a selection of books and little toys like Robbie the Robot; Bumblebee Car and some pens and paper. One of my books is a chalk board with traceable pictures and a little packet of white chalk. This is one of my little charges’ favourite books. I made a mini chalkboard at home one day with cardboard from a packing box and painted it with chalkboard paint, it is approximately 60cm by 30cm. I brought it to work for the little charges to do some drawing while we were waiting to do a school pick up one day and it was that poplar that I had to bring it out of the car so they could utilise it at home. 45minutes later the little kidlets moved onto another activity!
