Boys making a trail with sticks

No. 12 Have fun with sticks

There are so many ways you can have fun with sticks that we can’t begin to list them all. Is it a wand? Is it a marker for a trail? Is it the start of a den? You can find everything you need with a bit of careful hunting on the ground.

Family on a scavenger hunt

No. 30 Go on a scavenger hunt

Explore the Woodland Walk and see what you can collect, spot, hear and feel. Pick up your activity card in the Shepherd's Hut at the start of the Woodland Trail and see who will finish their scavenger hunt first.

Bug hunting

No 31. Make friends with a bug

Ladybirds, spiders, butterflies, woodlice - there are all kinds of creepy crawlies hiding in the woods and parkland at Kingston Lacy. See what bugs you can find on your adventure?
