We're going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We're not scared."
by Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury
After waking up to rain, at least the day turned out fine and with a few friends we celebrated Ted's 3rd birthday with a 'bear hunt' birthday party. We wrapped little picnic's in large handkerchieves and tied them on to sticks for the children to carry on their own and went for a walk around a beautiful bluebell wood. Pete dressed up as a bear and waited for the children to find him as they walked through the woods "stumble trip, stumble trip" and the river "splash, splosh, splash, splosh." It was so lovely, we didn't organise any party games, after their picnic lunch and hot chocolate the children climbed trees, played with sticks and discovered wood ant nests... just how it should be.
