We spent the first morning of Half Term bathed in glorious winter sunshine at Pensthorpe Natural Park. Smug? Us?
Running over the Half Term week (and coinciding with National Nest Box Week) is a new trail, Home Tweet Home: 8 coloured bird boxes with information attached about the creatures who may live inside. Seek out the nest boxes, fill out the trail sheet and earn yourself a shiny limited edition badge, designed especially to accompany the Home Tweet Home Half Term activity.
(As an aside – we love the idea of the limited edition badges – can see collecting these throughout the year being a big draw in our house. Great idea Pensthorpe!)
The quest for nest boxes takes you around Pensthorpe (including into the fabulous adventure play area, Wild Rootz) and by the final couple on our sheet, our boys were running ahead to see who could reach the box first.
A lovely activity to while away a morning out in the fresh air, and also encourage an appreciation of the natural world.
There’s also a special £3 OFF per person if you visit Pensthorpe over half term. Nice.
Home Tweet Home half term event runs until the 18th February 2018. For full details and opening information, check out the Pensthorpe website.
