Since the hens have been on peak production, we were able to offer these Hazelhutters a fresh egg each for breakfast and they loved them - well who wouldn't?!
A day filled with creativity followed. This group made some of the most colourful and interesting shopping bags of the summer.
More children made chickens too!
And others went their own way!
The rain came down at lunch time and so we had an indoor picnic followed by a drama game or two.
There were plenty of moments for being active too.....
....and for playing some favourite games!
The children tried out a few treats of their own making(!) at snack time and since our weekly barbecue was rained off, we had an indoor feast for dinner culminating in a very British tradition - fruit crumble - all from the Hazelhut trees of course! 'Delicious!' was the verdict.
