I happily hosted the fourth Granny Camp.
The children and grannies had to choose one outfit (with layers) to wear the whole time. We all slept in the tent and all meals were cooked outside on a makeshift fireplace built by the children. Children were not allowed in the house except for the toilet. There were few activities planned other than preparing, cooking and eating.
The official lighting of the Granny Camp cooking fire.
Preparing strawberries for jam.
Making fruit salad.
Baked potatoes with toppings, and boiled eggs for dinner.
After some songs around the campfire,
into bed in the tent.
Cooking damper swaggy-fashion.
Eating damper - anyway you can.
This little chef knows how to make a damper!
Zorro and the girls on clean-up duty.
We played Hiaki (a hide and seek game)
There was the usual visit to the creek with....
a bit of boat making and sailing.
and some mud pies and mud balls made to chuck in the creek.
Apples were prepared for cooking in the coals.
More singing around the fire and toasted marshmallows.
I am blessed with fabulous sisters and fantastical grandchildren and great nieces who all bring their enthusiasm to granny camp each time.
