Living arrows 2017 – 14/52

For the longest time Rhys was obsessed with Angry Birds.

He loved playing all the different versions of the game on whatever device he could get his hands on.  He’s got books about them, has seen the film quite a few times, and has a rather impressive collection of Angry Birds soft toys.

But then, a little while ago, he seemed to move on a bit.  He discovered Minecraft and Pokemon, and the Angry Birds got sidelined a little bit.

This past week though, he seems to have remembered how much he loves them!

He’s been playing his own live action game of Angry Birds epic.  He’ll spend ages finding things from around the house that can act as helmets and shields for his birds.  Then he’ll act out battles with them, moving them around the house to different levels of the game.

It’s fascinating to watch him play in that way, with that much imagination.

At the weekend we actually had nice enough weather for him to be able to move his game outside to the garden, which he absolutely loved.

Our garden is a little on the wild side, which I would imagine makes it quite fun for children.  He definitely enjoyed clambering around the place and setting up his little action scenes with his toys.

It really was nice to be able to be out in the garden with the sun out (even though there were still dark clouds threatening to make their way over to us!).  With the clock change it meant the children could play out there quite late into the afternoon, something I think they’ll be wanting to do a lot now that Spring is here.  I can see a trip to the shops being on the cards soon, to pick up a new sandpit.  The one we had last year really hasn’t survived the winter!

    It’s great when they really get in to something and it sparks their imagination. He looks like he’s having lots of fun. I love this time of year when the children can play out in the garden, it definitely helps to wear them out for bedtime. #LivingArrows

    It’s so nice that his love of Angry Birds has returned – in our house it’s all Thomas or My Little Pony and I’ll be sad when these phases end. It’s so, so nice getting outside – the children have been loving it! x

      For ages here it was Chuggington, but that stopped quite a while ago, it is sad when they move on to the next phase! Nerys is big on My Little Pony too, although I’m not sure how she even found out about it! x

    Imagination is the best isn’t it? Ours is obsessed with shimmer and shine, and she’s the least girly girl I know! #LivingArrows

      Oh I love that, you really can’t label a child can you, their interests are so diverse! x

    That’s a fab picture – it sounds like Rhys has got a great imagination. We were out in the garden for the first time this year at today too – here’s hoping this weather lasts! #LivingArrows

    Angry birds have only just started to make an appearance in our house but I don’t think it will be long until Monkeys doing the same and making up all sorts of attack strategies. Love the picture you can really see how inti it he is. Fingers crossed for good weather all week x #LivingArrows
