Is anyone else excited about Autumn yet?! I absolutely love this time of year and the weather for the last few weeks has been amazing (even if it is pouring with rain outside the window at the moment!) We have been taking every opportunity to get outside and enjoy it. The atmospheric misty mornings with the promise of warm afternoon sunshine seem like Autumn weather at it’s very best!
I’m sure I have mentioned before that we are lucky enough to live within a few minutes walk of a local nature centre. It works mainly as a environmental education centre for the nearby schools, but also holds school holiday and weekend activities, as well as a forest tots session once a month. We visited recently for Wild Woods Day for forest themed exploring and crafts!
Now that most schools have banned games of conkers from the playground it seems that lots of children have never played! Mia was a little bit wary when her Dad suggested a game, but she had a go and was really good. Both conkers survived, but I think hers would have been a three-er!
Not pictured were bread making and campire cooking, charcoal making and bushcraft skills…during these I was mostly covered in flour or was trying to keep Joe and Mia away from fires. Definitely camera down moments!
