We had friends join us for some preschooler-friendly horse racing fun for the Melbourne Cup this week. We made paper bag horse puppets, cardboard hobby horses and horse spoons, rode in our box horses and enjoyed some snacks. The little man was so disappointed that we didn’t have time for our other horse activities so we have spent another day doing more crafts, apple bobbing, pinning the tail on the donkey and playing a variation of conkers/horse chestnuts (idea from here). I love any excuse for a celebration!
