I decided that we could make a list of things to go searching for while on our walk at the park. So I sat down with Lily and we discussed things that we may find at the park in the spring.
Lily came up with some good ideas, leaves on tree's, grass, flowers, squirrels, birds. But she did also add a few strange ones that I wasn't quite sure we would find at the park, such as pigs and a whale?
I also helped her and we added some more spring related things, like daffodils, butterflies and blossom tree's.
Soon enough we spotted some birds hopping around on the floor. I asked Lily to be quiet as we could also hear some whistling in the tree's and so we looked up to spot them. One thing we noticed is that there isn't many tree's with leaves on yet. But we did find some, so we could cross them off our list too.
We got to the playground and Lily instantly found the swings, another one ticked off the list. This is where we took a break from finding things on our list and had some playground fun.
Now just to find, flowers, an apple tree, ducks, a butterfly, blossom tree, cats, bee's, and a pig and a whale.
The park does have a stream but I was very doubtful we would see a whale swimming in it.
