Stay Wild: The ‘Wild’Life Continues…

Well, 30 Days Wild may be over, but our outdoor adventures and love of nature certainly is not! ‘Stay Wild’ with The Wildlife Trusts and continue to share nature/ wildlife themed posts on social media using the hashtag #StayWild ~ it is lovely to see what other people are up to!

And here are some of our latest ‘wild’ activities…

Aldenham SEN playground has a lovely natural environment and some resident wild rabbits roaming around too!

 

Squiggle took this photo herself. I love it! I feel that taking part in 30 Days Wild has meant we both notice and appreciate our natural environment even more than before and has also really helped to develop our photography skills.

 

I don’t know what this is but I love it, it looks so magical!


We also spent time in the garden, harvesting some of our homegrown vegetables…

Squiggle found lots of snails in the garden, of various sizes…

And we went to Stanborough park for a walk around the lake…

March Round-up

Here are our March highlights. I chose the song ‘Wonderful World’ because we went on several lovely nature walks and this song really echoes our appreciation of the world around us!

As well as the nature walks, a few of our other activities (as seen in the video) include a marine conservation workshop by Whale Fest, a playdate at the park, other parks and playgrounds, growing our own potatoes, reading, Aldenham SEN playground, a trip to Willows farm and a visit to Stockwood Discovery Centre.
