Big Day out at the Woods!!

Spent another day with Wormseye View today, we had 7 children between us so thought it would be best to get everyone out the house! So where better than getting out into nature with a bit of bug hunting a tree climbing added to the mix!!

First up a quick picnic lunch to build up everyones energy!
Found a den for some exploring!

We counted the rings on a tree which had been cut down, talked about how each ring represented a year of growth. And also possible reasons for it having been cut down! Maybe the other trees near by needed more room, or for making homes for bugs...?

Then we made a fairy house in a stump of an old tree, talked about the story of the earth children, how everything is waking up in spring to make the flowers bloom and the trees grow

The Bluebells are out at the moment, it's a beautiful carpet covering the floor
Then lots of tree climbing!!!

Everyone had a really lovely day and we had 7 worn out children by the end of it! I think we'll definately be making more trips there as we head towards summer!
