We have not long returned from one of the most beautiful corners of England having spent a lovely day with the kind folk of Yeo Valley and The National Trust. A collection of bloggers and their families had free rein of the Organic Gardens and Tea Rooms to explore and carry out activities - and get started with the 50 things list. The weather was pure English Autumn - a bit of a nip in the air with clear blue skies.
The day was designed perfectly for the children to run, explore, find pumpkins, hunt for art materials, hunt for minibeasts, build mini dens, blow a grass trumpet, meet the happiest hay bale I've ever seen, try not to fall off the ha-ha and eat the delicious lunch provided by the Yeo Valley kitchen - it was hard work but someone's children had to devour the serving plate of macaroni cheese. Then the children were ready to get creative; reunited with their pumpkins they decorated and filled their heads with cress seeds and got artistic with a piece of paper and a plethora of natural materials scavenged earlier in the morning.
