Little Adventures Challenge! ~ with Barny and Britmums

Bloggers have been set a challenge by Britmums and Barny Snacks to have an adventure!

I'm always up for an adventure - that's why I have a broken leg. Sadly that means we can't go far on our adventure, but it's been a while since we explored our own I thought this was the perfect incentive... 

The first things we found  were flowers, but there are no bees buzzing round them in October....

 The next things we found used to be flowers, and now they've turned into seed pods...

We found a really fat spider hiding in amongst some Holly and we wondered if she was having babies soon....

We found some leaves that had been eaten, and looked for evidence as to who had been nibbling on them...

We started thinking about what food is in our garden for animals and insects...


 We found evidence that animals have been here - someone has been gnawing at the Acorns.  

But we can't see anyone in our big Oak tree, and there aren't even ants and flies and other insects climbing around on the bark....

Someone definitely seems to live here, but they're hiding too..


 If they're hiding, where are they?

 At last! Worms and slugs, snails and a millipede....

We don't think we'll find many more creatures hiding, so we go on a bear hunt...

Looks like we may have found some bears!
This food is not berries for birds or toadstools for rabbits, this food is safe for Little Adventurers....

The boys really liked the Barny snacks. They liked the look of them and the packaging, and they were gone in seconds, so I guess they must have liked the taste too!

This post is an entry for BritMums ‘Little Adventures Challenge’ in partnership with Barny, the bear-shaped snack providing a little discovery in every bite. Find out more about Barny here.

    1. Ours were all gone in minutes and then we had to explain to 2 of the teenagers why it was they didn't get to try them! :D

  4. Doesn't look like you need to go out exploring with that garden! My children both love those cakes too :)

    1. We are incredibly lucky to have such a gorgeous garden - it really needs a lot of work to get it ready for Winter now though!
