Country Kids: Mill Wood

After a rubbish week with barely any outdoor play, I was determined to get out and about with The Boy today and we went in search of woodland to explore. Welly-bedecked and waterproof ensconced we found ourselves some stout walking sticks to aid our exploration and trekked through Mill Wood.

We found the old mill, abandoned for nearly a century, and pretended to play house amongst the ruins and squelching mud before climbing the steep, stone steps wedged into the hillside and following a path above the stream. At one point Mr. TBaM got stuck in the bog and The Boy decided to try and pull him out before pretending to get himself stuck.

The most enchanting thing for The Boy was exploring his echo, which was amplified brilliantly in the Wintery woodland.

    That looks really fun in the muddy wood. 🙂 My kids were reminding me today that we haven't been to our nearby woods yet this year! I will have to change that! 🙂 x

    Looks like some great Country Kids exploring, I hope it wasn't too cold for you all, it has been bitter this week. Refreshing to get back home with tingling cheeks though!

    I LOVE really muddy play – so many people shy away from that much mud and mess, but I love the chance to really mucky up my kids – nothing a hot bath, a warm drink and a washing machine can't cure after all! Looks brilliant.

    Looks like the Boy was well kitted out for a boggy walk. Makes such a difference when the kids can stay warm and dry on their adventures. I hope the Boy is still enjoying his echo. Thanks for stopping by the outdoor play party
