We've Been on a Bear Hunt!


With the unseasonal sunny weather we've been making the most of being outdoors before the autumn properly comes and this week we've been on our very own bear hunt!

We've recently got a local allotment plot and the site is amazing, a real hidden gem!  It was whilst we were at the allotment the other week I was looking at the blocked off 'cave' on our plot, nearby shaded trees and the long grasses at the bottom of the site and it got me thinking - this is perfect for going on a bear hunt!  But to be honest you don't need to have all the right things for the story you just need a good imagination and plenty of space for running round and having fun.


We're going on a bear hunt!


Off we go...

There is so much for little people to explore at our allotment site.  Living in a city I feel it's a real privilege to have access to some awesome outdoor space and growing space within walking distance of our house for only £47 a year!  Little chick particularly enjoys time up at the allotment and over the next year or so we're hoping to incorporate some play ideas into our plot as well as exploring nature and growing things there.


Oh no long grass!  We can't go over it or under it...


We'll have to go through it...



Oh look, a stream.  We can't go over it or under it...


We'll have to go through it


Mud!  Well, we didn't go through the mud but we had some fun digging and we spotted this worm.


 Woods!  We can't go over it or under it...


 We'll have to go through it...

(We didn't manage to find a snow storm whilst we were out so we had to pretend and we enjoyed making lots of Hoooo wooo! noises instead)


Look, a cave


 Better go and take a look...


 What's inside?


 A dark gloomy cave.  Is that a bear hiding at the back?

Quick! Back!


Into bed.  Under the covers.  We're not going on a bear hunt again!  

This bit of running up the stairs, jumping onto Mummy and Daddy's bed and diving under the blanket was definitely the highlight.  Little Chick has been re-enacting this bit pretty much every evening this week!
