We are are pretty much surrounded by fields here and live near to woodlands, so it’s no surprise that we love getting out and going for walks.
Autumn is the perfect time for a scavenger hunt in the woods. We have lots of autumnal crafts planned ahead so this is the perfect time to go and find some supplies so off we went. We took a jute bag along to fill with lots of finds on our scavenger hunt.
It was nice to have a little Autumn sunshine whilst we were walking, although it did blow my mop about! The wind really did pick up.
I love nothing more than seeing kids running around outside and playing in the fresh air (and it tires them out of course) Winning all round!
I had to get a shot of that tree. Doesn’t it look as if it should be in some scary scene of a horror film. I have a vivid imagine by the way!
We walked right up the hill to discover this lovely view at the top.
There were loads of acorns about. A squirrel led us to some fallen chestnuts too. Unfortunately I didn’t get a capture of the squirrel. Even with all my best efforts of being super quiet as I crept into the woods, Jayden doesn’t do ‘tippy toes’ and came stomping on by shouting ‘squirrel‘!
We didn’t do too bad at all on our scavenger hunt. Now it’s time to put our finds to good use and make some awesome autumnal crafts.
Have you been on a scavenger hunt with your little ones? Do you enjoy walking?
