Thursday’s Outdoor Opportunity from Mrs Manning

Mrs Manning’s Outdoor Opportunity

It looks like another wet day so why not be a busy beaver and build a dam. If you have a deep enough puddle you could try it in there, if not you could use a tray or shallow bowl or maybe a baking tin. You can only use natural objects like sticks, leaves, pebbles, moss and mud, so you will get messy ! The challenge is to see if you can stop a flow of water. Build it right across the puddle or tray and use mud to stick it together – a bit like cement. When you have finished pour some water in on one side and see if you can stop it flowing to the other side! If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Don’t forget to post photographs.

Keep Well,

Mrs Manning
