He collected leaves and seeds and twigs, and made a clay bug.
He also made a mosaic block (and got entertained by the lovely man doing the grouting as he decided he was going to sit with him!).
He played with some bugs, and searched for them with a spoon. And studied bees for a very long time (well long for a toddler!)
It's a great place to visit regardless of the Green Fair. There are masses of grounds to explore and flowers to admire. There is a forest house and the remains of - I want to say - a church, but I'm not sure! They often have kids activities, and there were clipboard activities for the slightly bigger kids. I'm considering asking Santa for National Trust membership so we might become regulars!
Check back next year to see how much fun we have again. Or come along too!
