Two excited boys put on their warm coats and got their torches
and went on a treasure hunt in the dark.
As we set off down the path the torches spotted something we see every day,
but never notice.
Dried plant stems from last year all lying down neatly in rows.
Our boring fence was very different in the dark and the boys spent a while
making different shadows on the building next door.
On the grass we found a branch which had blown down in the wind.
An inspection hatch. The boys have never paid it any attention before and wondered
what could be down there? I think it might not be as exciting as they imagine!
Then we found Holly branches.
Lots of Holly - and lots of Magnolias and other plants.
And the branches from a willow tree which caught in our hair
and gave the boys a scare!
And then, something shiny in the distance.
The treasure was swiftly investigated by my 3 year old
while his big brother shone the torch!
Wahey! Treasure collected, time to go back indoors and reap the reward!
The Barny snacks were an excellent snack for adventurers and have a hidden fruit filling which the boys agreed was extra tasty. We even let the teenagers have one each too because we're kind. The rest will be perfect for packed lunches.

We were sent our 2 packets of Barny for our review adventure.
