One afternoon this week, we were fortunate enough to explore a new playground.

It was getting cold, but there was still light, so we played. The sun was setting, but there was still light, so we played. The sun could no longer be seen on the horizon, but the last rays of sunlight were clinging on, so we played.

We played until the street lights were on and it was dark.

This week’s Instagram:


Moments of playing, wanting to be out until utter darkness; these are the makings of wonderful childhood memories!

Here are some plays from last week’s weekly Kids’ Co-op that will have you and your kids playing out till the sun is well and truly set.
