#PLAYTIMEWITHOSKAR Challenge Prompt 1 :
Week beginning Monday 28th June
What do you and your little ones enjoy doing when the weather turns grey? Do you pop on your wellies and head outside for some puddle-jumping fun? Stay indoors for some some rainy day play? Get out the paints and crayons and get crafting? Why not share your rainy day ideas with us OR create an artwork, flatlay or small world play scene inspired by the topic - 'Stormy Skies'.
This week's prize is a Sarah's Silks Skytale (rainbow comet)
