#30dayswild – Week 3

#30DaysWild is a challenge from the Wildlife Trust to connect more with nature every day in June, joining in with “random acts of wildness”. This is our third year taking part and I love how it encourages me to get outside with the children more and to take a closer look at the world around us. Every year, I find myself learning something new and this year is no exception.

 

Some of our wild activities are focused; others are just about getting outdoors and going with the flow. #30DaysWild is all about taking moments here and there to connect with nature. This week has been one of those weeks where we’ve just grabbed little moments to get wild and take a closer look at the world around us.

 

Here are the things that we enjoyed during our third week of taking part in #30DaysWild this year:

Day 17 – Sophie was quite indignant about this cheeky squirrel stealing one of the pine cone bird feeders she made!
