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 from Sunday 10th February 2019.

Number 1: Climb 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: Run around in the rain

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: Make a trail with sticks

Gather up lots of sticks so that you can lay them on the ground in the shape of arrows. Then you just need to find someone to follow your trail to the end!

Number 18: Create some wild art

Collect twigs, leaves, feathers and other fallen items in the garden to create a piece of wild art.

Number 31: Hunt for bugs

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 34: Go bird watching

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
