Into the woods


Today I woke up, looked out my window and smiled. Why? We finally had some blue sky!! The weather this week has been terrible so there was no way I was going to be staying in doors today. Unfortunately though my bank balance was looking a little empty so it was time to use our imaginations and attempt a fun day out for free. 

Nearby is a little woodland with a park at the end of the trail so we put on our boots to go for a little explore. 

Not many people use these woods so it's such a peaceful and beautiful place to take a Sunday stroll. Through the middle is a little stream which the boys loved to splash in and throw rocks into. There are also so many places to climb and hide.

To keep the children from getting too bored and moaning about walking, I came up with a little activity to do. I gave them a challenge to find as many different species of bug as they could. 

The boys didn't have any success. They only things they found were cobwebs, some flies and a little ladybug. All the bugs must have been hiding today. 

At the end of the trail is a lovely little park. Its kind of a big reward/ goal for the children for getting through a long walk. 

Overall, it was a lovely relaxing Sunday. The children had a lot of fresh air, exercise and fun without me spending a penny.  I hope your Sundays were relaxing too and all ready for the new week. 

Thank you for visiting. 

Gem, Alfie, Thomas. x
