Knowing how little people enjoy it, we also had a digging area, and also a place to make clay eggs full of wildflower seeds to throw into a patch of bare earth to make a little wildlife-friendly flower area.
Ingredients for pancakes and healthy sandwiches
And, since it's Windmill, we have to have some food cooking! Rosy and Phil made some super-healthy sandwich spread with cheese, onions and carrot, and also some of our famous apple pancakes, once we'd worked out that they work in Metric, whilst Tracey, being ancient, had written out the recipes in Pounds and Ounces! I think it's fair to say that a lot of apple was smuggled into willing mouths, and the food seemed to disappear as soon as it was made.

Ray helped the session go with a swing by entertaining us on his guitar. Notice that he had worked out what the temperature was going to be!

|Having fun with paper making|
Tracey was able to show everyone how to make paper themselves, so most people got to take away a sheet of their own, and Pulp Friction have borrowed the kit so they can become experts themselves. For anyone trying it on a cold day like this - make sure you put a bit of warm water in the vat!

We've heard that the families from Bilborough really enjoyed it and have had a good time planting their cards and seed-eggs, as well as trying out some of the recipes. We're looking forward to inviting them back when the weather is warmer!
