Garden Games

My kids pretty much live in the garden, outside of winter. As soon as my daughter gets home from school, we all head out there. It’s not a very big garden, especially considering our 1970s outbuilding, but it’s fine for our small family. We have a trampoline and a slide. I don’t want any more toys out there as I think it is important for kids to figure out how to have fun using their imaginations. 
 
One day, my kids will be at an age where they have to come home and do homework. Or else they’ll want to watch television or play video games. But for now, they play. Sometimes even with each other. Moozles, who is newly six, likes practicing cartwheels and head stands. Dubz, who is barely two, tries to copy his big sister. I sit down and watch them, resting before they call me to join them on the trampoline. My heart is happy.

  1. Isn’t it great to be able to get out into the garden no matter the size?! 🙂 #Countrykids

  2. Our garden is on a slope, which is really boring in that we can’t have a swing or a slide or even a paddling pool in the summer but really brilliant in that we can run really fast down the hill! Hours of fun x

  3. Awww look at those priceless smiles. Made me wish for a garden as we dont have one at all =) #CountryKids

  4. Lovely happy photos of lots of fun in the garden, if my teenagers are anything to go by then your children will be playing on the trampoline for many more years! Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

  5. That handstand piccy is AMAZING!!!!My kids love the garden too bad. It is making me sad that we are stuck in with the rain. It is proper rubbish. PS your eldest has your smile xxx

  6. My kids love being outside too. We’re going to get a trampoline soon – I think it will keep them happy for hours! And yes – go away rain!!! 🙂
