Potty for Potatoes

As had become somewhat of a habbit I had stollen a friends Baby girl for the day, due to family events this year I have what I feel is quite an important bond with this little girl so do on occasion steal her for a day out, which is a bit of fun for me and a day of rest for her parents!

A couple of weeks ago our day together happened to coincide with time to dig up the potatoes!

This was a fab opportunity for her to really get her hands (and feet) dirty and she was loving every minute of it. She is a very tactile child at the best of times, all food has to be held before eating, she just loves different textures under hand (and in this case foot).

There is just nothing like a bit of dirt to get kids really engaged!!
