I made some sponge water bombs, using this youtube tutorial:
I chucked some water pistols and the sponge bombs in the paddling pool, and the kids had a water fight.
While they were in the garden, Fred and Betsy found a snail that they adopted as a pet.
They made a habitat, and will keep it for a couple of days. They've named it Turismo (Betsy wanted Gismo, Fred wanted Turbo, so they came up with a blended name!).
Later there were lots of neighbours available to play with. Kids in and out - Fred to Jarvis's, Teddy here, joined by Jeanie for a while, then new friend Jake came over, and Betsy and Meg went to his house.
In between comings and goings, and laundry, and deliveries, I noticed a magnificent spider web outside the front door.
