we headed to the woods for a festive picnic, some cracker hunting, a spot of sprout potting & some whipping up of some reindeer food.
Here’s how we got on…
we took with us a few boxes of crackers…
and a festive tipple! It is Christmas after all..
we took with us a cake which we covered with carrots that were to be left for the woodland reindeer to feast on…
the kids enjoyed milk and cookies whilst I disappeared to hide the crackers..
and then they were off!!
they had to find four crackers each before returning to the table so everybody got a chance..
they all gathered in a pulling frenzy!
and we read the jokes..
some of us wore hats…and others didn’t 🙂
we then gathered up our sprouts for a game of sprout potting
which eventually turned into a game of muddy sprout paintball type human target practice..it got messy
and there were casualties 🙂
After our game we calmed down with some sedate reindeer food making..we mixed porridge oats with glitter
and we popped it all into an air tight container ready to sprinkle Christmas Eve
