An afternoon out…

As today was Friday of the half term holiday, the kidlets were getting bored and the weather was fine and unseasonably warm, so we bunged them a camera each and set off to visit Birmingham Nature Centre

We armed ourselves with dodgy digital cameras/mobiles, and Marty gave us a triangle theme for our snappy afternoon, resulting in:

Triangles - Sas

    Fantastic pics – I love the idea of have a “triangle theme” for the day.

    Perhaps the theme for your next day out could be “circles”?

      Thanks Andy 🙂 Circles is a possibility. The triangles turned out really well as it really made them look at shapes and lines around them in a different way. I was actually surprised how observant they can be! Now, if we can just get them to pay attention to us in a similar manner……. hmmm, perhaps not! 😉

    What a truly brilliant idea. I will definitely be stealing it on our next day out! Great pics too, the children obviously enjoyed themselves very much!
