Leaves in the bath

Last autumn we collected a large bin bag of dry leaves from the garden and filled up the bath with leaves for Sunnyboy to play in. Of course, he also played in the leaves in the garden but I thought indoor leaf play would be fun too. He really enjoyed it and was busy in the bath arranging leaves for a long time, eventually pouring water on them and playing with soggy leaves. Our bathroom smelt of autumn for days.

  13. Sarah, the wooden thing with chains in my header picture is part of a climbing frame so I think those bits that look like swings are actually for climbing, but maybe it would be possible to swing on them too. :)
