I decided that I wanted to do a woodland hunt with a difference for the children, I wanted it to include a yummy picnic too.
So with a little imagination, a whole load of carrots, some cake and treats and a flask of soup we headed out for a carrot themed hunt in the woods…
Here’s how we got on…
FIRSTLY I GATHERED EVERYTHING THAT WAS NEEDED…
I bought a carrot cake for £2 in Waitrose & decorated with a packet of bunnies from Poundland, we finished by adding carrots and laying it on a cake stand….
I made a sign (see above) & placed different coloured elastic bands around our carrots so the kids could hunt for their allocated colours, they also had a ‘golden’ carrot each to find..
I filled some plastic plant pots with loot to be rewarded to the finders of the golden carrots..
Lastly I gathered a picnic blanket, a flask of soup and bread and loaded up our baskets to take to the woods..
WITH EVERYTHING PREPARED WE WERE READY TO SET OUT!!!
The best way to carry everything was in a wheelbarrow..
Whilst the kids headed off to explore the woodland I set up…
Firstly I placed the sign..
And laid the picnic..
I then set about hiding the carrots..
Then the kids set about on their hunt..
And they were fruitful!!
And when they had counted up their loot they were able to head off and search for their reward pots for finding the golden carrots…
All that was left to do was dig into our rustic picnic… YUMMY!!
We had a fab time with a bucket load of carrots and a simple picnic…
