Is it June yet? My kids are already wild!

LEGO men like to explore nature too

The #30DaysWild challenge run by The Wildlife Trusts starts tomorrow and I’ve been Planning ahead for it by trying to come up with lots of ideas of what we can do, especially if we get stuck around town or indoors for a day (or 30) for whatever reason.

But what I should probably do is simply watch my children decide for themselves.

From LEGO men exploring the wilds of our back garden to camping in it overnight to the sticks you can find to play with in a Tesco car park, Luke has this urban nature explorer thing under control already.

He was even wearing his “Walk on the wild side” slogan T-shirt for the supermarket trip!  Ideal if I’d only taken the photo two days later…

And Willow was not to be out done taking a keen interest in the feathered residents throughout the beautiful grounds of Rufford Country Park during our Bank Holiday Monday day out – a very good suggestion by some close friends whose daughter joined Luke in revelling in running through the open spaces, woodland and paths around the lake.

And there were even a few sand angels thrown in for fun too.

It was, of course, a May Bank Holiday, not a June one.  I’m hoping we haven’t peaked too early and won’t run out of steam before the challenge has even started but I’m glad it appears my children will be willing participants.

I’m just going to pretend that I haven’t looked at the weather forecast for the next few days…
