The Wildlife Trust has put out a super little PDF on winter activities.
It has some good ideas on ways to stay wild during these chilly months.
Included are ideas on:
- Making bird feeders.
- Making a snow globe.
- Discovering animal tracks.
- Making a Winter bird bath.
- making ice decorations.
Each are nice activities for a few hours on a weekend or Spring holiday to fight the boredom and still get outside.
There are some challenges to do in the snow such as making snow animals. Suggestions include making a snow hedgehog using sticks for spines. It would make a nice change from a snowman and won’t take anywhere near as long! It also lists wildlife and winter events to look out for.
The activities are largely family/young children orientated, but it’s free so you’re not going to lose anything (beyond a few minutes of time) by looking.
