Now Tots100 are holding a competition with Kia all about the walk to school and the things you might see on the way.
There are ten things to find and photograph on the way to school for the competition.
- Something Yellow
- Something That Grows
- A Red Letterbox
- A Blue Front Door
- A Triangle
- A Bus
- Something Old
- An Interesting Shadow
- A Bike
- A Smile
I've been complaining a lot lately that we don't get out enough because of Star not being well. This competition has made me realise that we actually get out loads and see lots of things every day the other two are at school. Doing something like this has opened our eyes and suddenly the trudge to school has become an every day treasure hunt as we think of new things to look out for.
So here are the things we photographed on our way to school.
Something Yellow: We saw so many things that were yellow, the lollipop man's coat, buttercups on the grass, flowers in gardens, the local shop sign, a notice on a lampost and many more. We decided we liked the words in the road outside the school.
Something that grows: Again we saw lots of growing things, usually of the plant or flower variety. Then I realised that the two little people in front of me where growing every day...sometimes way to quick for my liking.
Next up it was the Red Letterbox. I gave the Little Man a letter to post while I took a photo of him (or six, and Google plus did a fantastic auto awesome which I'll tag onto the end of this post)
Then we had to find a blue front door and a triangle. We saw many of both, there is a whole street by us with blue doors! We saw triangles everywhere especially in the road signs but in the end we decided to go for these lovely triangles you can see in this garden, and I have bench envy!
We took loads of photo's of shadows too but looking through them when we got home I liked this one of the Little Man against the school fence.
We were going to take a photo of Boo on her bike, but to be honest I don't let her ride it to school just yet, maybe now the weather is nicer I could start taking the bike to meet her from school. I pick the Little Man up from nursery at lunch time and his little friend rides a bike. They love to race to the corner where we go our seperate ways. So with her daddy's permission I have this photo of their race.
That's our ten photos and my fingers are crossed for the competition. However, even if I don't win I'm so happy that we took part and it made me realised that we do get out a lot and the school run can be fun.
For this reason I'm also linking my post up to Country Kids from Coombe Mill.
Here is my Letter box getting the Google auto awesome treatment.
