Autumn seemed like the perfect time to tick off the Trees, Leaves & Seeds activity from the RSPB Wild Challenge as hunting for autumn leaves and seeds is a family favourite which we do every year.
We kicked things off in early autumn by collecting conkers and as the season progressed we found acorns, beech nuts, chestnuts and sycamore seeds too. All of which got recorded in their nature journals and put on display in our home.
We also collected leaves, identified them with our tree guides and then got crafty with them!
And then to finish things off we each picked out a tree in the park to return to and study throughout the year so as to record the seasonal changes.
