Wednesday 29th April


Good morning!


Yesterday I was unusually organised and set up our visit the night before . . . I checked the weather forecast and, as it showed rain, I found some lovely rainy activities.Then I woke up this morning to beautiful sunshine! We are, however, going to believe BBC Weather and I won't be putting my washing on the washing line and we will be sticking to the rainy day plan, although I have now included fine weather activities too! 

Today's visit is to the Woodland Trust. The Woodland Trust care for and protect trees, woods and also wildlife; including restoring ancient woodlands. Although they have free activities on their web-site, which we will look at on our visit, they are also fantastic to join and support as a family because:


'Each child also receives their own Nature Detectives membership, including:

  • a welcome pack for their age group with stickers, posters, spotting sheets and more
  • seasonal activity packs four times a year, bursting with fun and exciting ways to make the most of the great outdoors as well as crafts, games and competitions.'


I have included Rainy Day Activities for Kids, including mud kitchens (making mud pies, pizzas and cakes), mud monsters and creatures, leaf and twig boats, build a shelter, hunt for slugs and snails, start a raindrop orchestra and jump in puddles. Plenty to keep you busy in the rain!

As it is still sunny, I have also included 10 Nature Activities for Kids if You're Self-isolating at Home. These include, amongst others, going on a minibeast hunt, making a loo roll bird feeder and making natural art. There are activities for both indoors and outdoors.


All of the links are in the Activities section.

Happy 'Whatever the Weather' Wednesday!
