3 Sensory Games For The Garden This Winter.

There's no denying the great outdoors is a great place to stimulate a little ones senses...


From the smell of the herb garden, the touch of the grass between toes, the sight of caterpillars squirming up leaves, the sound of the birds tweeting in the trees or the taste of the blackberries growing in the bushes there are learning opportunities at every turn. Here are 3 quick and easy ideas for everyone to try...



And then when you're done exploring in the garden why not head indoors for a mug of nice warm milk and a biscuit or two? Arla Big Milk has been developed to meet the needs of children aged 1 to 5 and has been finely filtered for freshness and is enriched with key vitamins and minerals. It contains iron which contributes to cognitive development, vitamin D for normal bone development and is naturally rich in calcium for the development of strong bones and teeth.


Right now Arla Big Milk are asking for you to enter the #BigSteps competition by sharing a picture of your little one doing something for the first time to win some great prizes. Also you can follow Arla on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with them and enter some really exciting competitions.

  1. Oh Becky, you are the coolest mum ever. I love the idea of the mud kitchen and the stick men. Also, we are very lucky to have a wood right on our doorstep so I definitely think a nature hunt is in order. I know that Little Miss H would love this. Little Miss also loves gardening with me. She has her own set of tools. And we like to make homemade bird feeders for the birds and other wildlife that come into our garden. Such a brilliant post. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
