Our Week Outdoors: Learning New Skills at the Playground

The girls have been learning some new skills at the playground while visiting Granny & Grandad.

Princess Pea is learning to handle the monkey bars. She can now hang, swing, and go one rung forward. It's progress, and not bad considering she'd never been on monkey bars before (and considering that she is rather...how should I put it? Wimpy? She does only weigh 13kg!). And while playing on the monkey bars, she's developing her future handwriting skills, too!

And remember a few weeks back when Sweet Pea thought she'd try walking up the slide like the big kids? Well, now she actually really can!!

(I found out when I turned my back for a moment, not imagining she could even get close to doing it, and when I turned back, there she was at the top!!)

Thanks to everyone who linked up to last week's Outdoor Play blog hop! I hope you all found some other great ideas to try for this week! I know I did! I have three favourite ideas from last week so I'm breaking with tradition and featuring all three! So there!

Make Early Learning Fun shared this great idea for making and testing boats to float in rain puddles. A bit of Pooh Sticks meets science learning!

Play, Create, Explore shared how her son had a blast with painting outdoors on an old whiteboard. Fabulously messy fun!

And Putti Prapancha shared this fun and original version of ball painting - slide painting! What a way of making a super attraction at the playground!
