Getting outside even when it’s grey and cold

My car is out of action right now so we went for a walk. We like to go for walks anyway, but we should really do it more often. Why?

  1. It’s free
  2. Fresh air is awesome
  3. Kids ALWAYS love it once outside!
  4. We always find interesting things
  5. Never the same twice
  6. Etc etc

So today we played Pooh Sticks over a bridge, we jumped and squelched in muddy puddles, we built a little wooden den for fairies, we collected pretty things and got very cold fingers. My favourite find was the sprouting conker which we’ve popped in a jar with kitchen towel and water to watch and hopefully plant up!

BigG (4) gave me all the “I don’t want to go for a walk” “I don’t want to go outside” nonsense, but honestly he would have stayed out all day given the chance. 😆
