Most of the nature this Winter seems to have been of the very wet and cold variety. Trying to motivate small children to spend their afternoons on walks requires some planning, bribery or invention.
Throughout the year there is a wealth of interesting things to find along our routes to keep them happy and moving, so we play a game of nature treasure hunt. The boys complete, or work together to find various items that we call out.
As the seasons change so do the colours of the woodlands, commons and gardens that we walk around. There may be less things to find, but that doesn’t mean that they are devoid of wildlife or interest.
