One of my favourite things to do in Autumn, is going for walks. I love getting out and about in the fresh air, looking at all the beautiful colours and collecting all the things nature has to offer, to see what we can make.
Last weekend, the weather was not looking promising so we popped out quickly while it was dry. There was no time to go anywhere special, but I don’t think you always need to, there is still lots to offer walking round the streets and local park.
The children took a bag each to see what they could collect. We hunted for leaves, admiring the range of beautiful colours. They had fun trying to find all the different shapes and colours. We also spotted some mushrooms growing in the grass by the side of the road.
We walked to the park, where they had a few minutes to climb and swing, which was great, as we haven’t been to the park for ages.
On the way back we collected lots (&lots!) of acorns, some sticks and berries.
BB wanted to find out what was inside an acorn, so I promised we would cut one open when we got home.
We had a lovely walk together. It is really nice how a quick walk, nowhere special can be just as much fun as going on a big planned day out.
Back at home, this is what we did with our findings…..
