50 things to do before you’re 11¾ in autumn

No.10 Play conkers

You will need a conker, some string, a worthy opponent and a grown-up to help you get the string through the conker.  There are lots of places to collect conkers at Croome.

No.21 Forage for wild food

September is a great time to pick blackberries from the hedgerows - they're everywhere. They are not just tasty treats they make great drawing tools too.  Get help from a grown-up who knows what they are doing.

No.22 Find some funky fungi

There are loads of different species of fungi at Croome in the autumn, in the grass, growing on trees, how many can you find?  Try drawing them. Please don't be tempted to eat any of them.

No.30 Go on a scavenger hunt

Make a list of five things you might find. The possibilities are endless. Be sure to scavenge things already fallen, do not pick anything that is still growing. You could also collect different colours or textures by taking photographs or rubbings.

No.33 Go cloud watching

One of the best things about Croome’s landscape is the big sky meaning lots of cloud spotting opportunities. You might identify the different types of clouds or you might see different shapes in them.
