Picnic Party: nature walk



Last weekend was Sunnyboy's birthday picnic party. After we'd eaten the picnic and handed out the nature walk gift bags we set off on a nature walk around the Country Park.





First we stopped at Hall's Pool for some pond-dipping,



then we walked around Dickerson's Pit and met a smartly dressed "wild animal" handing out gifts for the nature walk gift bags.













Each nature walk gift bag had a little card that said You will need: a stone, a stick, a leaf. We used the leaves to do leaf rubbings with crayons and we used the sticks for a game of Pooh Sticks on one of the bridges between the lakes. At the end of our walk we decorated the stones with marker pens to take home in the gift bags as a memory of the day.

  1. The smartly dressed wild animal was a great success and so were the magic tricks. The nature walk was just lovely and although it was hot the trees kept us shaded and provided lots of fun for play. A magical party, a day to remember. Mum and Dad
