Weald and Downland's Wonderful Wednesday

We spent a lovely day at Weald and Downland Open Air Museum yesterday with our friends Carole, Tess and Brodie and some of the other local home educating families. It was Weald and Downland's 'Wonderful Wednesday's' where they have crafts and activities for children during the summer holidays.
Hannah learnt all about the games children used to play, and tried her hand at cat's cradle, yoyo's, and jacks. She made a woollen tassle, a bees wax candle and some lovely printed pictures as well as exploring some of the old buildings including the brickworks, the blacksmiths, and a water mill, and playing with her friends.
Here are some pictures of her favourite parts of the day.
