Weald And Downland Open Air Museum - Wonderful Wednesday

Yesterday we visited Weald And Downland Open Air Museum for one of their children's activity Wednesdays with our homeschooling group.

Hannah had a lovely time with her friends making candles and bath bombs, learning to willow weave, meeting the animals and exploring the houses and gardens.

We had the best day yesterday, we spent it with good friends, in a lovely location and Hannah learnt a lot more about the past and how people used to live - perfect (except for the wasps - there were A LOT of wasps !!).
