National Trust Easter trail

We had a lovely trip today to Wallington. We followed the Easter trail - this is the third year we have done it! We worked out the clues relating to the habitats of four animals - badger, duck, squirrel and rabbit to earn a chocolate egg reward, which was very well received at the end of a cold and tiring afternoon. 

One great part of the trip was when Harry started shouting excitedly as we crossed the car park, 'I can read it, I can read it!'. He was referring to the sign to the car park and was really pleased with himself. He proceeded to read out all the 'way out' signs to us as we left too.

It was great being outdoors and we had a long play on the train and a walk down (and in!) the stream. We saw some really interesting ice in the shaded woodland where the sun hadn't reached to melt it. We also noted that the snowdrops are starting to die off.
