Summer is Here and the Outdoors Awaits

As the Summer officially begins today and we have felt some of the warm weather as well, I thought it would be fun to share some outdoor images with you today.

These illustrate some of the great ideas and activities that the practitioners in a nursery in Liverpool created during our recent outdoor play training morning.



Tea bags are great when soaked in paint – to use for ‘splatting’ on the wall or stamped on to make great patterns.



The story telling tent brought out narrative creativity and building skills!


A beautiful butterfly made from natural, free materials, which can then be dismantled and made into a caterpillar.


The fairies had a pool bar, loungers and a spa.

I hope you get some inspiration to go and try some of these yourself, whilst the sun lasts.
