I haven’t included the Inset tray or the Sandpaper numerals because after observing Ooffa with our homemade insets I decided that he would benefit from having a proper set and I don’t have the time to make our numerals at the moment, so I ordered some from an Australian outlet that I haven’t used before and I still haven’t received our order after two weeks waiting 🙁

Saturday is Game Day

Teaching the kids to play Bingo.

Sunday is Nature Adventurers

How awesome is this Moreton Bay fig tree! Of course, when there’s a tree that’s just inviting you to climb it, what can you do at five and six years old but climb it!
