Today's #oursensorywinter play prompt was Winter walk, so we went for a walk at National Trust Knole Park.
I was going to take an egg box to collect items that we found along the way, but in our day to get out of the door, I forgot to pick one up! So instead we just looked out for interesting things and talked about them. We found beech nuts, sweet chestnut shells and most exciting of all, a woodpecker and lots of beautiful deer! It was amazing close they were.
We also used one of our favourite books "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" as inspiration and retold the story as we walked. We went swishy swashy through the long grass, stumble trip through the forest, splish splosh through the pond and finally found a bear cave to explore! Of course we have had to read it again now that we are home.
