Top 5 things to do in the garden

The weather hasn’t been great in the summer holidays, but there have been a few sunny days. When it’s sunny I like playing in the garden and here’s my top five things I like to do in the garden and that you might like.

In fifth place… Riding things! My garden isn’t that big but I can still get around it on my bike without any road traffic getting in my way.  I also like taking my sister for a ride on the back of my quad bike. We play taxis and I give her a lift around the garden.

In fourth place… It is my sister’s trampoline! It’s a little one-person trampoline that we bought second-hand for only £5. I like jumping on it but sadly once I almost jumped over the front. The dog loves jumping about on it too.

In third place… Gardening with my dad! I was sent some cool Gruffalo gardening gloves and I am going to use them to help my dad dig, plant and get messy. I planted vegetables in my garden like carrots, spring onions, chillis and green peas. The gloves are going to come in very HANDY 😀

In second place… Painting and clay! When it was a sunny day, mummy covered the garden table with a cloth and me and my sister painted clay things that we had made last year. It was really fun – you should try it with air-drying clay.

In first place… Pro Swingball! This new toy was sent to me this summer and I have been playing it with my sister and my mum. It is really tricky to hit the ball but I’m getting the hang of it. The rules of Pro Swingball is the ball goes round and round a pole and you have to take it in turns to serve and hit it. My dog Mowgli also loves Pro Swingball and keeps trying to eat the tennis ball on the end of the string!

What things do you like doing in your garden? I’d love to hear from you!

Beavers Adventure

BeaversLogoYesterday I had my very first time at Beavers. It was very good even though I got stung by a stinging nettle!

Beavers is a boy club that you can go to. They do different activities every week like nature trails, barbecues, camping and completing lots of challenges to earn different badges for the uniform – I don’t have my uniform yet but I’m going to get it soon. Lots of my friends go to Beavers so I am very excited to have finally joined Beavers. There are three boy clubs: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The leader is Badger. I think he is very funny and awesome. There are other grown-up helpers but I can’t remember all their names. I am in the yellow lodge with two of my best friends from school.

I am looking forward to earning badges at Beavers and getting my uniform and scarf and woggle. I will feel very nervous when I put on my uniform for the first time ever and I will be very proud of myself too.

Do you go to any clubs like Beavers, Rainbows, Cubs, Brownies, Scouts or Girl Guides?
