What to wear?

Outdoor clothing and sensible footwear appropriate for the weather.  Ski suits are really good for children when taking part in autumn and winter outdoor activities as they keep the child snug and offer brilliant protection when splashing in puddles :) We have ones similar to this.

There are so many trees here why not make a little educational trip. get your little ones a book or worksheet and help them identify the trees you find.

 We love packing these and hunting for all the things on the cards.  We love packing these and hunting for all the things on the cards. The children have little bags for collecting the items. These are great for allowing the kids to easily see what they have collected so far.
