I love rock pooling. I get bored pretty quick on beaches when there isn’t much to do. I’m not a sunbather and I can’t read outside. Now searching for beach treasures whether they are alive or bits of pottery and sea glass. I can do.

Rock pooling today. We found a star fish, a little flat fish, a crab and lots of sea anemones

Wool felting with kids. On the left is my 2 yr olds and on the right my 5 yr olds. Such an easy activity for kids. Sure they have to try and avoid stabing themselves with a sharp needle but...🤷‍♀️. Some supervision was needed for the 2 year old admittedly but she did it herself. I have a pen that holds three needles which is def quicker and easier than just using one needle. I can see we’ll make lots of these. They’ll be great for handmade cards. Shaping is the hard part of needle felting but just making pictures is super easy. #artwithkids #kidscrafts #craftswithkids #kidsart #woolfelting

It’s so exciting to watch the caterpillars change 🐛. Both my daughters have had caterpillars in nursery and school this year. River’s class released their butterflies today! Having them at home just a few days behind has been brilliant because River has been the expert and has told us all about them and how to look after them. Fingers crossed 🤞 we get to see the butterflies emerge and don’t miss the transformation. #insectlore

Freddie the tree. We love to climb and explore for bugs here. And the woodworm patterns remind me of our floorboards 😂

A friend and I seized the Monday and straight from dropping the big kids off at school we drove for 45 minutes to a beautiful picnic spot by a river and enjoyed a smug few hours in the sun before getting back in time to pick the big ones up again.

It’s not #30dayswild anymore but we can still climb a tree before it gets chopped up for fire wood

We found yet another birds egg in our garden today and added it to our nature cabinet for day 29 of #30dayswild. But we also washed up all our bird feeders to prevent the spread of disease and found the first cherries beginning to ripen on our two ginormous cherry trees 🍒

We also took a stroll along the river in Durham for day 28 of #30dayswild
