Playing Peter Rabbit

The girls spent a good three and a half hours with me out in the garden this afternoon. 
They were quite happy entertaining themselves, creating games and playing with the mud. 
 When I asked what they were playing they told me "Peter Rabbit". I asked who they were and my eldest said she was the cat and my younger daughter told me she was Mr McGregor's wife. They then showed me all their "pies" they'd made with mud and bricks and in each one was a character from the book "This one has Peter Rabbit in, this one has Benjamin in... we don't like rabbits in our garden!"
I guess I've taught them well on that front! 
Tasty pies...

Eating some New Zealand Yam leaves, these girls are animals! 

They had a great time playing in the mud but a wash and a change of clothes was needed! Lovely company for an afternoon planting veg!

  2. So NICE to see the girls playing and using their imaginations. Doesn't seem to be much of that going around now a days.

  3. I can still remember playing on an old bomb site in 1960 in Liverpool, using bricks and mud to make all sorts of things. Is so lovely to see the girls using their imagination just like I did so long ago! A bit of dirt never hurt anyone.

  4. I literally laughed out lloud reading this. Did you keep a straight face when they told you about the pies or did you lose it too? Have they ever eaten a rabbit pie?

  5. That is so funny! Most kids would play AS Peter rabbit, I guess that's the difference with homestead kids, they are far more practical­čśé
