This morning we began our day outside. George enlisted some help from Aedan and Maddison to continue a dig in the sand pit. Maddison found a spade for Sarah and instructed her on how to use it.
Meanwhile Charlie conducted a dig in the dinosaur land with Ewan and Grace and Bella, it was hard work with lots of groans as the dirt was lifted.
Inside Marea discovered some collage items. Ruby, Paige, Harmony, Willow and Maddison sat along side each other joyfully participating in this experience.
Sarah Brought in a shelf system that needed to be built. Ruby and
Lochlan helped with the instruction booklet. George Harmony and Paige pushed the dowel in to the holes and Charlie pushed the boards down onto the dowel.
In the afternoon Marea found 2 eggs that had been laid by the chickens, we gently passed them around so that every one could feel how warm and smooth they were.
