Games for 3 - 5yrs Autumn walks
With the seasons changing there is so much more to see on walks. You can turn a trip to the park into a mini explorers dream adventure!! Here is a great way to make a trip to the park or to the bottom of the garden more exciting:
Plan a scavenger hunt! You can modify the list depending on where you live but here are some great ideas to collect / do whilst enjoying the fresh air.
If you live near a park with wildlife conkers are great to feed deer and frozen peas make safe, healthy fish food!
Also send them off with a notebook and pencil / crayon to draw some things that they find or to do bark rubbings!
