Autumn is a wonderful time of the year for grown-ups and children alike. I don’t know about you, but so many childhood memories come flooding back at this time of the year; crunching through dry fallen leaves, collecting conkers and keeping an eye out for pine cones ready to glue and glitter for Christmas.
As the weather gets colder it can be easy to plump for the snuggle up on the sofa and watch movies option, but too much time indoors as a family tends to make everyone a little stir crazy. A good blast of fresh air can remedy this.
We spend a lot of time outdoors as a family, but I always find that my six year old son is never keen on the idea of going for a walk, even though once we’re out he runs ahead and has a grand time! At times like this it’s handy to have a little motivational back up, like this printable Autumn Nature Spotting sheet.
To become a nature spotter, simply gather the following few items and head outdoors to your local park, woods or green space.
