More nature walks and a nature game



A nature walk through the cemetery,





and on the way to Toys R Us.





At the country park with our home education group.













Nature walk finds.







We had an old nature lotto game with lots of picture cards missing and rather than throw it away I thought we could use some of the cards we had left.



I took out all the cards with pictures of animals, birds and insects that live in the UK (some we're more likely to find than others) and as we see each one we'll put the picture card in our nature journal.



If you have a post about a spring nature walk, nature journal, nature game or any post with a spring theme, we'd love you to link up at our All Year Round Blog Carnival: Spring, which is open for new links until May.
