It may be Autumn but that doesn’t mean you can’t get out and about and explore. There are still plenty of sunny days left to come and a trip out doesn’t have to cost a fortune either.

After a very busy and expensive half-term, today was the day for a cheapie day. We planned to meet up with the sister-in-law and cousins at Herne Hill in Ilminster, you can read more about it in this pamphlet here. After getting lost, we never actually made it to the hill but instead found a park.

That’s ok, the kids totally weren’t bothered and it was a new park to explore, what’s not to love? If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen my stories where I downloaded and put together an A5 double-sided Autumn Scavenger hunt from ready-made versions on the internet.

We managed to find most things around the park including exploring a field with some trees. However, parker who has Autism was slightly frustrated that we couldn’t find a hedgehog or a fox and no amount of explaining was going to console him.

To be fair spotting a hedgehog or fox during the day was going to be highly unlikely. I wouldn’t want to see a hedgehog during the day as it’ll likely mean there is something up with it and I have no idea what to do with a poorly hedgehog! But please try and explain that to a 5-year-old with autism….

So I have put together my own Autumn Scavenger Hunt which contains realistic items that you should be able to find on a local walk, park, or in a woodland. It’s totally free so enjoy. If you end up with any photos of your little ones on their hunt then feel free to post them below.
