Life In Pictures: Wilderness Wood

wilderness woods - little button diaries

Behind the scenes at Little Button HQ (we say that to sound fancy even though we are, in reality, two mums sitting at computers in pjs with gigantic mugs of tea), we’ve been busy for most on the year on a very big nature-inspired project that has meant we’ve had to drag the kids outside at every free opportunity come rain or shine. They have become so used to following us around woods looking for suitable sticks, leaves and rocks! They look a little bit like ducklings walking around and, to be honest, for them the novelty of outdoor crafting has well and truly worn off!

Woodland Walks With Kids

A few weeks ago on a very soggy Friday we took the kids for a nature walk at Wilderness Woods. We  made a little video of our tips for exploring nature with little ones.

What are your kids favourite things to do on walks?

Squirty Chalk Paint

We’re sharing extracts from our books every month (so you buy them) and this month we’re doing a project from our Big Book of 100 Little Activities – which may just be our favourite one. But don’t tell the others. So we’re sharing a great quick craft for summer holiday boredom-punching-in-the-face fun: our squirty pavement chalk. This is super messy outdoor fun paint that creates wonderfully bright pictures. You can paint onto corrugated card or directly onto paving slabs. It won’t stain the slabs but it does need a little scrub to remove! You can use old sauce bottles or find empty ones online.

DIY Giant Bubbles & Wand

Oh my goodness this could possibly be the most fun project we have ever done! These giant bubbles are AWESOME. Easy to make, quick and endless hours of squealing joy. Even if you don’t have kids (they pop them too quick!). Bear in mind the bubble wand will dribble its goo everywhere so this is one project that is definitely more suited for outdoors. We made a video tutorial for Channel Mum – click to watch above or read on for the full tutorial.

This week, well, to be honest – its been raining and freezing for most the week so to say we have done a great deal…. would be a bit fat lie! Harper did get to spend some quality time with the grandparents which was a nice break.

 

Before kids I never thought I’d give mine an ipad. And yet here I am, it gets whipped out more than it probably should!

Life In Pictures: Sheffield Park

sheffield park 6

We took a trip to Sheffield Park to get some fresh air and start using our newly purchased National Trust membership.  Its such a lovely place, surrounded by lakes with ducks everywhere.
        

Lilah decided that ducks are absolutely terrifying. She went from feeding them happily to screaming within about 3 seconds.
