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.

reedsOn the days when the sun is shining and the skies are blue, the contrast in colours is really exciting.

  1. Oh my those tree roots are amazing and I love the ‘tickly’ grass at the top too. All such lovely photos from this time of year – and it just goes to show that there’s colour to be found!

    Thanks ever so much for joining in and sharing, this weeks linky has just gone up so I’ve added this post into it for you as I suspect most of the others might have missed your entry as it was late in the week xxxx

    1. Best climbing frame ever. The boys tell me the fairies live in the many toadstools that we find in the surrounding woods!
