One of our favourite outdoor activities is to make things using freshly mown grass. Luckily none of the girls have hay fever so they are happy to play in the fields behind our house. There is nothing more lovely than the smell of grass which has just been cut and is drying in the sun.

When I was little I always made nests from the grass. The girls like to make them too.

Their favourite thing is for me to make them a grass maze. We just pile the grass into heaps and make it into different shapes.

Then they run around it.

It’s such a simple activity but so much fun. How to make a Grass Maze

They like to do this as races and see who can get to the end first.

Usually, the maze gets broken before I can take a photo. They like to kick it apart. On this day we got really cross because someone let their dog run all over it while we were still building.

I like the fact it is such a collaborative activity. The girls work together to help make the maze then to go round it.

This was one of my favourite days from last Summer before the twins were in school full time. Just looking at these pictures makes me happy. This is definitely on our list for this Summer.
