Special Blessing’s Childcare

While maintaining the Outdoor Adventures Classroom we continue to revamp or add new things. This year we added a chat around the garden area for a pathway for children. I painted stepping stones with various garden pictures.

The entrance has two stock tanks with a horse panel going from one stock tank up and over to the other. We planted green beans  and cucumbers that vined. While at the exit we did the same with vining thornless blackberries. We planted tomatoes, peppers, jalapenos, and tricked you jalapenos. We added flowers this year, and planted mammoth sunflowers. Our strawberries are still goin great. The scarecrows were spruced up!!

I painted and added birdhouses to the garden wall. I made a little tea table in the garden to add some character that the children like to sit at. My husband brought home a wire man, he knew I would like it. He is our wire scarecrow in the classroom. He is holding a bird feeder in one hand and a basket in the other for items for birds to help with their nest building. A family friend donated their overalls for our wire scarecrow.

We recently added an art wall with easels and a way to display childrens art outdoors and to enjoy their own creations. I continue to add potion bottles, pots and pans. I added a tuff tray for small world play at a construction site. I have another wood table with a family scene in the sand that children can enjoy playing with.

We love all the seasons throughout the year to enjoy and engage in it all year long. Recently we added a teardrop swing low to the ground for children to get into easily. Otherwise we are in the outdoors maintainting and repainting. I hope to add some tall grasses before winter sets in and to add more in the fall when it is cooler weather.
