Create an exploration basket with natural treasures to find out about Autumn, hibernation and hedgehogs!
It’s the perfect time of year for going on nature walks and foraging for fallen treasures to take home and explore! The girls found some spiky, round seed balls from a large Plane tree the other day and brought them home to add to our nature collection. As the days passed they started to soften and dry out a little, and began to perfectly resemble tiny hedgehogs!
