At the moment we're not able to visit the woods together but that's not going to stop us exploring and enjoying nature!
Each week one of the Grow team will introduce a nature walk to give you a bit of inspiration of what you could look out for as you explore the area around where you live. We think you'll be surprised at what you find.
Here are just a few of the things we found on a short walk near our house. We looked on the path (watching out for dog poo too!), on garden walls, up in trees. I realised that I never take time to stop and look up in the trees, we're usually to focused on getting to school on time.
Taking time to walk outside also improved everyones mood, the kids were more settled and I felt much less grumpy by the time we got home.
You can find the Woodland Trust nature spotter here. Print it off, take it on a phone. Don't worry if you can't spot all of them, it's just to give you a bit of inspiration. Extra points if you spot our cat, Heston making a cameo appearance!
Are you taking up the 30 minutes for 30 days walking challenge?
There's been so much rain recently, hasn't there? Walking to Arrowe Country Park we found that the brook had swelled so much it had created a waterfall!
It's amazing what you find when you go out for an outdoor walk. Can you identify what is happening in the videos to the left and below?
As a hint, the video on the left was taken overlooking the beach at Hoylake,
whilst the video below was taken nearby the maize fields between Brimstage and Thornton Hough. Listen and watch carefully......
Have fun exploring! Don't forget to stay safe and look after nature.
We would love to hear from you. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
