I had seven children here this afternoon (unexpectedly), while it was raining. After 5 minutes of children screaming up and down the hallway, I said "STOP!" We had a group meeting and decided a puppet show was the way to go, or Aunty Kathy would go around the twist! So they got very busy making Mr Men and Little Miss puppets, and put on a (hilarious) puppet show. Chicken no.3 had a delightful time disrupting the show and (of course) eating her puppet (she just can't help herself with paper).
Earlier in the week when it was sunny, we decided to make a solar oven. It worked pretty well - well enough for s'mores, anyway!
It was so warm, that littlest chicken could model her apron without any clothes on. Not bad for winter.
And we've also been busy filling our Christmas Boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Yes, it's that time of year, and a very worthy cause.
