When you’re two almost everything is an adventure.
Catching leaves, searching out stones and digging in treasure troves of muddy gardens all lend themselves to new experiences. With this in mind we used a sunny afternoon to take on our Little Adventures Challenge.
We went on the search for Winnie the Pooh – one of Arthur’s favourite friends, at a beautiful local spot called Whittlingham Broad. We collected pooh sticks to see if Winnie would find them, we scrambled through blackberry bushes and searched oak trees for telltale signs of door ways and honey. We even found leaves Arthur was convinced were Winnie’s washing falling off the line!
“Winnie lives there mummy”, Arthur shouted and on several occasions he found Winnie’s house so we decided Winnie had several that he shared with Piglett, Eyore and Tiger.
Across the lake we heard Tigger bouncing through the reeds and somewhere Eyore and Piglett dancing in a den made of the twigs Arthur had thrown into the water.
Finally we sat down and enjoyed our Barny snacks - they had a big thumbs up from Arthur. A soft spongy cake with a yummy chocolate or milk filling. All in the shape of a cute little bear. Arthur loved biting the feet off first – luckily he didn’t associate it too closely with Winnie! They come individually wrapped in foil so they are easy to bung in your bag and they have no artificial colours or preservatives.
We had an adventure, a simple but great one, and we loved it!
