Hi, my name is Sweetie and I am pleased to meet you all. It’s so much fun to be in this photo shoot outside the house and covered in leaves..
Mark took me out with mummy and I think it was really thoughtful!
Haha…I imagined this would be the teddy’s vote of thanks for all the attention he got today. If you are like me, you have one silent member of the family sitting around the home. Teddy bears and soft toys? How could we ever survive our kids without them. Well this one is called “Sweetie”.
Well, I will tell you how she came to be found outdoors covered in leaves and looking like a samurai.
We went stone picking.
Stone picking is a lovely fun family activity. These are the items you need:
1. A plastic bag for collecting the stones
2. Your fingers for picking the stones😀
3. A footpath or safe road with stones lying around
4. Lots of imagination- to save you picking clustered sand instead of stones
5. Lots of energy for fun.
Oh! Did I forget to say-some good weather if you are in luck?
It’s a nice activity that costs absolutely nothing but promises to be lots of fun for all the family.
It can get your children all excited and give you the opportunity to spend some quality time with the kids. A note of warning though- It can get very messy because some of the most beautiful stones tend to hide in the mud🤡😂😂 But please don’t let that stop you.
Stone picking must be an art. It is the process by which you let boredom push you out of your sulky corner into the streets in search of pebbles. It sounds funny but in all honesty that is simply what it is. Nothing more…nothing less.
After collecting the stones, you will need some time to get them washed. I usually soak them with some soap and bleach to kill any germs and make them safe for handling. You can let them drip into an old towel and in no time, you would be ready for some fun with the kids.
Today, we chose to arrange the stones into different shapes.
It was so much fun. It allowed Mark use his imagination.To all the kids out there, keep having fun!!
Enjoy the rest of your day.
