The latest obsession for the boys are a box of metal matchbox/similar cars that my mum retrieved from her attic that used to belong to my brother. Quite a few are broken, wheels missing/doors off etc but they LOVE them! They love getting a plank of wood and making ramps to run them down, the latest creation is in the field made from old bales of hay from the archery target and some rough old peices of wood that were packing from the new printer at C's work I'm sure there's a length of drainage pipe running off it somewhere as well. This provided hours of play but the little boy (4) who is the nephew of the horsey people in the next door field came over said 'where are the toys? What can we play with?! 'There's nothing to do here, haven't you got any proper toys we can play with' He didn't stay long!
I'm decorating up a couple of big wooden boxes that we had from C's new printer at work, one will have carrots and short crop lettuce in the other I'm not sure yet.
