9 Summer holiday ideas

I am beyond excited that there are only 3 more days left of school, I am way more hyped than the children. I simply love the freedom, variety and the learning we have in these six long precious weeks. I feel I get to know my children again. I never get bored, ever. Here are nine things I want to try this summer:

1. Go for a walk without shoes
2. Have a fire on the beach at night
3. Make a necklace out of elder, this idea was pinched from yellowfields camping brilliant blog
4. Sit around our new fire pit and toast marshmallows
5. Visit Charleston
6. Set up a nature table at home
7. Use up all the craft gift sets in the cupboard
8. Pirate Day in Hastings
9. Go to as many brown signs as possible on a whim

Thats on top of everything else we have planned, ooh I can't wait I can't wait I can't wait!

And I've just thought of one more.....Make a scarecrow.


  1. Thanks for the mention of my blog! Have fun with the elder necklaces. Very jealous that you have your own fire pit in your garden. Joy.

  2. You're most welcome! You have some really wonderful ideas, we are going to make fairy houses too, down the allotment, as long as we don't need waders and galoshes!

  3. Gosh my kids are lucky. Can I come too sometimes?

  4. Ahh, course you can Blahtum, we'll start with a fire on the beach :-)
