There are some things on your 50 things list which can only be completed in winter, so put on your coats and pull on your wellies and get exploring this winter.

Number 1: Get to know a tree

There are plenty of trees on the estate and in the garden which are great for climbing. Have a practice on the fallen trees in the woodland for a practice first.

Number 4: Build a den

Build yourself a shelter from the rain in the nearby woodlands and discover the unexplored parts of the garden.

Number 6: Go welly wandering

There will be plenty of opportunities to run around in the rain this winter and so you should easily tick this one off and have great fun splashing in muddy puddles. 

Number 12: Have fun with sticks

Gather up lots of fallen sticks to get creative with them, what can you make?

Number 13: Make a mud creation

Head into the natural play area and get creative in the mud and collect some natural elements fallen on the ground to use as ingredients.

Number 31: Mke friends with a bug

The gardens are home to all kinds of bugs, from spiders, woodlice, centipedes and worms to name a few. Have a peek inside the bug homes around the garden and look under logs and leaves to see which bugs you can spot this winter.

Number 44: Watch a bird

Winter is a great time to spot birds, so head to our bird hide and or find a spot to sit quietly to listen to bird song and see how many different birds you can spot at this time of year
