Guess the Poo might be one of the funniest games I’ve ever played with the kids at a farm! It’s too easy, and too obvious to go around looking at the animals naming them. Kids have seen pictures of farm animals since a book has been held in front of them… But they’re much more unlikely to have seen a book with all these kinds of poo*!
Miss 3 worked especially hard cycling to get to Akalla By, City Farm, and what kept her going? Guessing who made the piles of poo we found on the way… Oh yes, and the promise of hot dogs once we arrived 🙂
We ventured out with grandma and grandpa, making much better adult: kids ratio; I like the chances of a long day out better with 3:3 as opposed to 1:3; which was just as well since all my little ones were tired coming home after, and what better than loving attention from doting grandparents, and a very relaxed mama.
Going mid-week meant there was hardly anyone around, so no queue for the swings, and no rush anywhere so we could stay by the different animals as long as the girls wanted. Unfortunately no amount of time by this one horse could coax her over to us. So 30 minutes later the girls had to give up and move on!
What did they enjoy the most, well, after guessing the poo, there was the giant checker board, grandpa proving himself a worthy opponent; the birds nest swing – always among the top attraction at any park too; the horses; and climbing on the animals carved into log stumps.
We took plenty of extra snacks along with us, so the way home was paved with ‘chocolate energy stops’! Which everyone was as eager to take, except Miss 3 who had absolutely decided that she would like hers when we came home. I explained numerous times that she could have a little energy stop on the way too and still have some at home, but my determined Miss 3 had firmly decided that there was only one way that this should be, and that was her way. I just have to love her.
*Yes there are a few of those poo books out there, and we love them!
