We love our country park!
After the adventure playground or the farm trail we go back through a woodland walk. Right at the start of it is a natural playground sculpted from tree-trunks: both artistic & fun!
The taller trunks are actually drums. They have slits cut into them & in such a way that they make a different noise depending on where you bang them with a stick.
Jake & Ellie however are more interested in climbing & jumping!
The game used to be that I had to lift them onto the first stump then zoom them through the air – while saying “WEEEE!”, of course – to the next one.
Now that they’re so much more physically able they just need me to lift them on then they jump off. Which is just as well as I have a bad back at the moment, to go with my dodgy shoulder!
After we’d done that & run around for a bit they discovered something new: a low-hanging branch to swing from!
This is another new activity here. As with many other things they’d seen some older children doing it & so of course wanted to try it themselves. Not always a good idea, but this time it was fine!
They hung, they swung – and they fell! But they’re physically capable enough they have no problem doing that either.
And they had a swingin’ good time!
Bad singing aside, it’s a magical little spot & one we all enjoy
