Down at the Waterhole


This has been the kids favourite activity this week with them playing Down at the Waterhole on and off for 3 or 4 days both inside and outside. I love that it is so simple and a great chance for imaginative play .... the animals come to the waterhole to drink, wash, play and have some great conversations .... 'Did you see the fish swimming in the water?' 'Elephant please don't splash' 'O No I see a Crocodile' are just a few snippets I have heard while they play

And of course it is nice to take a dip in the waterhole yourself :)

Watch out for the giant in the waterhole! It looks like they are having great fun. Have your read The Waterhole by Graeme Base, it would really suit this play. It is one of our favourite books.

Funny you should mention that book I have it on request from the Library hopefully we will get the email any day now to say we can pick it up :)

It's been wet enough outside this week without us adding to it, but we did get out a blue scarf and have a waterhole inside. For some reason, elephant kept thinking Mumma needed a shower, and coming over to spray me! Hmph! :)

And, because I am loving what you are doing here, I am stopping by today to give you this award :)
