RAINBOW MINI TODDLER ADVENTURE AT LYDNEY PARK

  As part of our ongoing toddler mini adventure series aimed at making the most of the pre nursery time remaining with Noah before he heads off to school in September, endeavouring to slow down & embracing our time together, today we went on a colours of the rainbow hunt with Noah… 

This also formed part of our local places exploration..

We went to Lydney Park spring gardens, nr Chepstow…..it was an absolutely beautifully stunning place & the perfect place for a colourful adventure with or without the kids… There was so much more to see there but our objective was to find colours…

SEARCHING FOR RAINBOWS

We decided to go on a search for the colours of the rainbow! We choose a day where the weather was forecast for sunny spells and showers in hope of finding a rainbow… We did indeed find a rainbow on our adventure and even a pot of gold at the end!!

Here’s how we got on.

We headed out under a beautiful BLUE sky…

And of course whilst the kids danced in the rain it gave me ample opportunity with slight of hand so lay a pot of gold for them to discover 🙂
Our colour was a great success made even more beautiful by the luck of ending the day under a rainbow 🙂 >
