The Fun Of Being A Child

We had a rare sunny day recently, so we didn’t waste the opportunity of getting outside, and the children loved being able to take their coats off and play. With the sun on our faces we didn’t feel the slight cold in the air and enjoyed being outside without having to wear lots of layers of clothing.

It may not the best quality, or a posed shot but watching my daughter and her cousins use a fallen down tree across a stream a place to play, to push their boundaries and explore their risk was so special and I’m happy I was a part of it.

It didn’t cost any money or have an adult telling them what to do, it just took imagination, confidence and the element of fun!

The joy of being a child and the happiness of natural play.

  1. It must have been a rare day Kim. No sunshine this end. It’s fantastic to see the kids having so much fun and not have to worry about the PC brigade coming along to spoil it. So many simple pleasures seem to have been stopped like conkers that kids used to take pleasure in.
    Lovely to see you back again.

      It really was one day David, and then it was back to rainy and grey skies! It really was so lovely watching them have so much fun with such a simple activity. You are totally right as well about the PC brigade stopping children having old fashioned fun. My daughter very comfortable and confident with risk and doesn’t do anything she knows she isn’t capable of doing. An important skill I think.
      Hope you well and thank you lovely comment.
