Follow the leader
Hand navigation over to the children and see if they can use the map and instructions to follow the route. Reading the facts and information provided, they can become your very own tour guide.
A Paston's view
Ask children what they think the Pasotn family would have seen on the walks that we can still see today? Point out both natural and man-made features (eg: trees, rivers, buildings) and discuss their thoughts and ideas.
Drawing with nature
Take a bag on your walk and collect natural materials as you explore. Use them to create a self-portrait on the ground at the end of your walk or when you get home.
Try and spot an object for every colour of the rainbow. Maybe you can collect several or put them in coloured bags!
Ask children to listen out for sounds. Create a list to tick them off or ask older children to record them as a soundscape for the walk.
Collect acorns, flower, pine-cones etc to take home and dissect to see what they look like on the inside.
