The grandchildren were here this past week. In photo above, granddaughter is in center, grandson at right. At left is their friend. Within minutes of arriving they dove into the playhouse (an outlying one-room cottage we renovated several years ago--it's filled with dress-up clothes, art supplies and games) and emerged to perform a skit they made up called Celebrity Beach Party. Very funny, these kids. I think Celebrity Beach Party was my favorite skit. I didn't so much enjoy the one with the farting bear.
They also like to do 'movies': they come up with a sequence, pose stuffed animals, I take the photos, and we set up on the Mac as a slideshow. Some of their skits were: Four Doggies; Animals at Play; and Friends on the Dock. My four-year-old grandson likes for the animals to engage in fierce battles; the girls prefer that the animals all get along. We used both indoor and outdoor settings. Here is one photo from Animals at Play:
They are climbing the fence into the raised vegetable bed. They want the blackberries.
I'm still finding remnants from their visit:
