I’ve mentioned before the garden games kit we were sent form Actimel as part of their Connect Fund. I can honestly say it made our summer.
All three children have spent most of the last six weeks in the garden. We’ve had a huge amount of fun with the pipes and polygons, and Z has become the MOST amazing ‘hoolie hooper’. His new skill is purely from hard work and practice. I’m so proud of him.
Z also spent an awful lot of summer hanging over the fence talking to the little boy next door, which led to many hula hooping competitions, games of badminton and tennis over the fence, story writing and LEGO building. It’s been how I remember my summers. Playing outside, making friends, exploring and learning new things.
One of the highlights for me, was our first family game of rounders ( kit kindly supplied by Actimel ). We played on H’s 3rd birthday with cousins, an auntie and an uncle.
The boys picked up the game quickly and were VERY competitive. Daddy of course had to show off and hit the ball into the trees more than once.
S and H lost interest quickly, ran off with the bases and turned them into broomsticks!
Thank you Actimel for making our summer extra special.

Sounds brilliant. I don’t think I’ve ever played rounders with my boys – something that should definitely be rectified. Thank you for the inspiration.
You should, we loved it.

How lovely…and I love that they turned them into broomsticks. Kids imaginations are just awesome aren’t they!
They are absolutely amazing…
ooh how awesome, such fun xx
Thanks Susan. x
Sounds like a great day. We organised a few sports days over the summer as well but the kids went and won them all. They must be growing up quicker than I had thought
oooh I like the idea of a Sports day.
So cute. All kids are lovely. Their imagination is amazing. Bonding with them through play is pricesless.

What fun, it’s great to be able to play games outside as a family! It also great for the little one’s gross motor skills and co-ordination, thanks for linking up and sharing your summer fun with Country Kids.
oooh good point Fiona. xx
