Lets go on a conker hunt

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.

Now both boys are at school Millie is on her own with me at home, we try to get out everyday and yesterday we went on a Conker hunt. My children for some reason love conkers, when they have collected them they don't do anything with them apart from leave them around the house.

We went to a little woodland area on the way to my Mum's house and started hunting for conkers, we didn't have to hunt too much as there were loads!

We saw mushrooms in lots of different places

She seemed lost without her brothers running around her aswell


Then we found this tree. I have lived in this area all my life and must have walked past this tree literally thousands of time and have never noticed it. I've never seen other children playing in it and certainly never did when I was younger. I couldn't actually believe it when I saw it. I almost got in myself, I would have fit aswell!

Our adventure was fun and interesting. There were so many colours and different types of things to look at. Millie had a fantastic time, she asked endless questions and learnt so many new things.

We got to my Mum's and she showed off her new conkers. Then after minutes of telling her adventures and showing her finds to Barny Bear she bit off his head!

I must say myself and my husband had a Barny bear last night and they are super tasty. They are sponge with a gooey chocolate bit inside. The boys loved them too, I think they will be a regular treat in our house.
