Enjoy #LittleAdventures Every Day

Part of the fun of Autumn is going out and taking note of all the changes that happen around you. The changing colours of the leaves, the crispness in the air, seeing the dew on spiderwebs early in the mornings.

The kids and I do a lot of walking, which is the perfect opportunity to pay close attention to the world outside and make every trip out a little adventure of our very own, even if we're just going to the shop!
In the last few weeks we have enjoyed nature and taken time to stop and look at the spider fixing his web, the snail hiding from the cold, the bee on the fence having a rest from flying on a windy day.

We have kicked through leaves on our walks down the lanes, and E found a particularly pretty leaf that she brought home with her to keep after our trip to town. It's so nice that she is able to spot beauty in the smallest things and really appreciate her surroundings.

On our train journey back from a day in London, E was gazing out of the window, almost asleep, and remarked how pretty the sky was - the sun was setting and the evening sky was a stunning show of red, orange & yellow. I thought how really quite lovely it was of a 3.5 year old to appreciate a sunset.

Of course little ones (and big ones) need fuel to go on these little adventures, and I like to try and keep their lunches interesting for them. Currently we're trying out bento style boxes like the one pictured below - cheese & ham tortilla pinwheels are a nice twist on a traditional sandwich, with little pots of their favourite fruit & a delicious Barny bear sponge cake as a tasty treat.
Have you been on any #LittleAdventures this Autumn?

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. Yes... I just went on an autumn adventure Florida style! We took a spontaneous trip to Key West yesterday. I just blogged about it. No leaves or cool weather but still fun! Visit me daily at

  2. When I remember childhood days with my Mum, it is always Autumn ones that I remember with most affection.
    Lovely words and pictures. Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part

  3. It's wonderful that E appreciates nature and the world around her at such a young age. Thanks for linking up and sharing your autumn adventures with Country Kids.
