string fun




Saw this idea somewhere a long while ago, and can't remember where now, but thought it would be fun to do across the whole of our little garden. I began by tying wool between the two hedges, and criss crossing it across the garden. soon the children wanted to join in too. except the eldest, who wanted to rationalise it. me and the little ones had great fun though, creating a maze of threads, like a loose weave, across our little piece of land.


Soon a little spider had been added to the giant web, and it had been declared great fun 'can we keep this up all week to play under.?' of course we can.

I did the same thing for my children one day. Now grown, they still talk about the spider web. I am so grateful that some things stuck right away. It tells me that 25 yrs at home was the best thing that I could have done. I had to move to a smaller city 1000 miles away, but the reward both Faith and chance was 3 well rounded children. Bring on the grandbabies!
