Outdoor Kindy Week – day 5

We had hoped for a few showers during the week to challenge us all just that little bit more, however we had been blessed with beautiful crisp autumn weather, until today.  This morning we were reminded of the imminent arrival of winter.  We woke to the sound of steady rain, but as the children began to arrive, the clouds seem to lift a little.  With the campfire
