Earlier this week I took the Purple children to visit Yeo Valley. I have visited Yeo Valley a few times before which you can read about here and here. The Yeo Valley headquarters, farm and gardens are in the Mendips and it’s a wonderful place to to visit so I was really pleased to be able to take my children there for the first time.
Yeo Valley are currently running an on pack promotion with The Woodland Trust. We were invited to go, take part in some woodland activities and learn more about the collaboration.
“Mummy I need leaf”. Wonder Girl took the business of leaf hunting very seriously.
“I need an expert in bugs” Robo Boy was keen to catch a mini beast to put in his collection pot.
The children did leaf hunting, mini beast hunting, shelter building and wand making as well as having a good old run about in a great big field. As regular readers will know I believe that this is the stuff of childhood. Preserving our outdoor spaces for future generations to enjoy is really important to me, so I’m pleased to promote the collaboration between Yeo Valley and The Woodland Trust.
Basically on special pots there are codes which can be entered here on the Yeo Valley site if you’re lucky you’ll win your very own tree. You can either plant the tree yourself or donate it to The Woodland Trust who will plant it for you. In total Yeo Valley will give away 10000 trees, which I think is brilliant.
Also on this page you can download some free Woodland Trust nature detective activities to keep your little nature lover busy over the summer holidays. You can find your local woodland to visit using the postcode finder, and you can even get some recipes for making a perfect woodland picnic.
The Purple family will definitely be spending some time in our local woodland this summer. I would absolutely recommend that you do too.
*Disclosure: Yeo Valley and The Woodland Trust put on a wonderful day for my children and I, free of charge. I am happy to promote anything which results in the planting of more trees.
We want to do it all again.
It was a lovely day wasn’t it?! I can’t wait to go again.
Nice to see you! Like you said it is hard to actually do much talking with kids but I think they all enjoyed it so that’s the most important thing. I love that first photo of them all in the flowers 🙂 x
Lovely to see you again although very briefly! It was great seeing them all run down the hill into the woods creating more memories x
Lovely seeing you again Ella! so sorry we could’t chat, we’ll have to meet up soon. Your kiddos are gorgeous xx
It was a fantastic day and so lovely to meet you. Love that picture in the floral wreath!
Your children are so clever, they astounded me with their knowledge. I also love their waterproofs, where did you get them from?
