Trees Trees Trees

Wow what glorious weather we have been having lately and that can only mean one thing, lots of outdoor adventures, exploring new places, picnics and spending time with friends in the wonderful sunshine. 

Bute Park right in the heart of Cardiff were running two fun outdoor inspired days during half-term - as Mr A is at home we usually avoid these type of things during half term as they are normally so busy it can be overwhelming and opt for countryside walks but at they were doing a Tree activity day and a Bat day we couldn't resist and to our surprise it was very quiet - I don't think many knew about it.

The tree day was a great combination of outdoor fun and educational activities from tree and bark rubbing to making green tree monsters as well as learning about the rings on the trunks and telling it's age as well as planting our own tree seed to take home. The Bat discovery day was more a drop-in style event at the Bute Park Educational centre and gave us a chance to see two small pipistrelle bats up close as well as learn more about the species found in the UK and making some colour bat masks which Mr A loved as we ran around the park pretending to be bats.

  2. I've never been to Bute Park, which is shocking really as I am not that far from Cardiff. Roath Park is lovely though, I have been there many a time and even on the boating lake once.

  3. I remember tree rubbing from when I was little! Why does no one do that any more? Nice to see it get a revival!
