What a fun day at the Hazelhut! We welcomed back five members of one of our most loyal Hazelhut families. The children were divided into groups and one group picked herbs to dry and give to their parents...
While another group made jewelry in the art room.
After a tasty snack, we swapped the groups over. Then before lunch some of the children helped in the vegetable garden.....
While others just enjoyed having new friends to play with!
We ate lots of home grown foods for lunch: what a lot of kids around the table!
After lunch there was time to play a Hazelhut favourite: 'Up Jenkins!'
In the afternoon a swim was needed to cool down from these super hot temperatures! Then we had a game of 'Splat!' before we had to say goodbye to our friends. In the evening some of the children went to check up on the animals - our chickens have stopped laying eggs! Maybe the hot weather is getting to them too.....
Later they used the flint and steel to light a camp fire.
Then we sang songs
and we ate burgers, hot dogs and marshmallows in the cool of the evening!
