About the activity & how to play it

Spring has sprung! Move aside winter, as it’s time for all things new – flower blossoms, leaf buds and sprightly leaping lambs!

With a group or individual, set off into the great outdoors to experience the freshness of spring and warmer days. Breathe in the new spring aromas that have just appeared and maybe even enjoy a relaxing stroll among the bluebells.

The activity

  1. Spend time looking through the Spring Nature Walker before setting off to familiarise the person or group with its images
  2. Slip on a jacket, if it’s nippy, and head into the garden or local park for a short walk with the walker
  3. Try to find one image at a time from the walker wandering along
  4. Once you’ve spotted one, hold the walker up and look through the hole to see how it matches
  5. Refer to the back of the walker to find out the names of the images
  6. Encourage everyone to be mindful of the smells, sounds and sights
  7. Touch what you spot, so long as they’re not out of reach, and encourage people to describe how they feel
  8. Keep an eye out for interesting things that aren’t in the walker, and stop to look, smell and feel them
  9. Once everyone has found everything they’re interested in, head back indoors
  10. Enjoy a cup of tea, discussing all the wonderful things you discovered
  11. Ask each person to describe how the sights, sounds, scents and textures made them feel – and what they memories they triggered
