50 things at Coughton Court

Pooh sticks

Pick up a copy of the 50 things booklet from Coughton’s Visitor Reception on your way in to keep track of how many activities you complete.

Here are Coughton’s top five '50 things' activities to try out this summer:

Play pooh sticks No. 19 – Whose twig will win?
There are several bridges here that you can use. One is by the ford which is on our family walk. Check which way the water is flowing before you throw.

Build a den No. 4 - Every part of den building is brilliant.

If you go over to the woods today you can try den building. There are lots of branches lying around. Please don't pull any off the trees. Can you build one big enough to get into?

Create some wild art No. 18 - Can you make something beautiful?

Look around you at all the beautiful things lying around especially at autumn time. Can you make a picture or a sculpture from them? Twigs can make a really artistic frame. Take a photo and maybe even print it out when you get home.

Can you guess what this is?

Fly a kite No.7 - Do you need a windy day?

Cross over the river bridge towards Tim's Grove and there is a wide open field just right to practice flying your kite. Will yours fly?

Hunt for bugs - No.31

Bugs often hide from predators so you have to hunt for them. Try turning over a piece of bark or moving some fallen leaves to see what you can find.
