Marrow Boats!

We picked the last of the marrows and the early pumpkins from the veg plot, then washed them in the builder's tray with paintbrushes and sponges.  Once squeaky clean Dewi cut them in half and scored them then let the children loose with a spoon each to scoop out the flesh. The little one whose hands are featured above had  lovely time emptying and refilling her marrow over and over again, relishing in the feel of the flesh and the seeds in her hands!

Once scooped out they could only be used as boats of course!

  1. I absolutely adore the marrow boats, beats the paperboats :) After you've played with them, they can then go into the compost bin.
