We were blessed with more beautiful September sunshine at the weekend, so we decided to make the most of it and go for a woodland walk to gather some natural materials for an art project. Nature scavenging is the perfect opportunity to discuss the seasons with young children. As we gathered different coloured leaves and fallen nuts, Banana and I discussed Autumn and how and why the world outside changes.
We decided to visit a new wood and Duckling was delighted to see that there was a field with horses, just before the entrance.
We enjoyed the woods with the sunshine speckling through the leaves.
We squelched through muddy woodland paths,
We came to an opening in the wood, where we enjoyed the late afternoon sunshine
Rolled down hills:
Did some cloud watching,
And had lovely, quality time together,
After this, we made our way back through the wood and gathered some more treasure on the way:
Here is the treasure we collected…
All ready to do something creative! Hooray!
