As Chester's attention span is getting better by the day at the moment I decided to see if he would sit and draw some objects he would like to find. His drawings, until very recently have mainly been scribble based, so I was very pleased to see what he came up with:
We then wrapped up warm and went outside! Both kiddies were very excited.....
Chester and the little girl next door get on really well so he asked if we could knock and see if she and her Mummy would like to come with us. They did, which was great. So we spent the next 45 mins or so exploring the area we live in looking for the objects. Both Chester and the little girl next door loved looking out for items, by the end neither of them were bothered about ticking the list but they both were still looking out for the objects.
We did not manage to find all of the items, surprisingly we did not see one cat! They must of all been having naps! Neither did we see a post box, which we would of if we had not taken a short cut haha.
Millie fell asleep about 5 minutes into the walk so was oblivious to it all! If she had been awake I would of been pointing things out to her too.
All in all a great time was had, it was a great way to get out into the fresh air. We could of driven to the country park to do the same thing, but I didn't want to use the car today. So my top tip of the day is make the most of what is around you within walking distance, it doesn't matter if you live in a village, town or city you can adapt your search to your surroundings.
Chester was still talking about his "treasure hunt" as he is calling it, at bed time this evening so it must of been fun!
